If you have purchased a firearm online, you will need to have it sent to an FFL dealer and I can help you with that. Upon receiving the firearm, I will contact you to complete the transfer. You will be required to fill out an ATF Form 4473. If you have a Texas License to Carry (LTC), I do not need to do a background check. I charge a small fee to do this transfer. My fee is $25 per firearm.
Discounts offered for certain individuals, such as police officers and Veterans.
When you make your online purchase, if the seller requests it, here is my Federal Firearms License (FFL) # 5-75-12779. If they ask for my email address, please provide them the following:
Please note: most sellers have my FFL documents on file which includes purchases on Gunbroker.com.
Things to Understand
* First and foremost, just because I receive the firearm does NOT mean I must transfer it to you. You must be qualified to receive the firearm. If you have a Texas LTC, the transfer process is simple. If not, you must be approved by the FBI. Your information will be run through the FBI's NICS program.
* For all handgun transfers, you must be at least 21 years of age.
* For all rifle and shotgun transfers, you must be at least 18 years of age.
* You must present a valid government issued photo ID, i.e., a Texas DL or a Texas LTC.
* The address you put on the 4473 must match the address on your ID.
* If you are run through NICS, one of three responses will return: Proceed, Delayed, or Denied.
* If your background returns a "Proceed," you are good to go. Please note that most returns come back in less than 15 minutes; however, on some days, it could be hours.
* If your background returns a "Delayed," I must wait five (5) days to see if the FBI returns a "proceed" or "denied." This follows the Brady Law. If I get no response back after this waiting period, I "may" proceed with the transfer. The key term is "may;" in other words, I'm not required to release the firearm if I do not receive a "proceed."
* If the background returns a "Denied," you cannot receive the firearm. If you are denied, you will have to appeal the decision directly to the FBI.
* Police Officers - please be aware that just because you are an officer does not mean you get to skip a background investigation. Only individuals with a valid Texas LTC are exempt from a NICS check.
