Firearms transfers come in two flavors:

The gun is transferred into our inventory, and out of the seller’s name. You will fill out the federal firearm purchase for and present current identification and, if applicable, permit to purchase. We will verify the background check and, upon successful completion, transfer the firearm to the new owner.
