Firearm Transfers and how to do it




This is probably the most common question regarding online purchases.. "how do I buy a gun online?"  Well, buying one is easier than you think.  Most shoppers will find an online retailer for thier purchase or go to a online auction service to find that item they are looking for.


Once you find that item online, you will purchase it and contact myself with all of the details of the transaction, ie; person whom you bought the firearm, invoice number (if any), item number & description, seller's contact info, and any other related information you may have regarding the transaction.  I will then email or fax the seller my FFL/SOT for their file and then the seller will then ship the item directly to me once you have paid for the item.  When the item arrives at my shop, I will notify you at that time so we can make an appointment for you to come and complete the necessary paperwork (Federal & State forms and background check as needed).


Normally, for long-arm transactions, once the paperwork is submitted & background check is complete (and approved), you will be able to take the item home with you same day.


For hand gun purchases, once you complete the paperwork & approved background check AND if you have a valid concealed carry license, you will be able to take the handgun home with you same day.  If you DO NOT have a concealed carry license, there will be up to 10 day wait period while your local law-enforcement official performs their necessary checks on you.  Sometimes approval comes back in alot less time depending on their work load.


To make the paperwork/background checks a smooth process, please bring your valid driver's license, concealed carry license, or any other government picture ID that may be necessary/helpful.  I will only transfer to US Citizens/WA State residents that are legally able/allowed to own a firearm.


Please be advised that WA State law requires that ALL firearms dealers collect sales tax on the invoice amount of the item.  This will be collected at the time of paperwork submittal along with the $15 transfer fee associated with the transaction.
