FFL Transfers

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 $20 per firearm.

When you make your online purchase, if the seller requests it, here is my Federal Firearms License (FFL) # 5-76-07343.


If they ask for my email address, please provide them the following: 


Please note: most sellers have my FFL documents on file already as I have been doing this for years.

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.​
