If you purchase a gun online via auction or from an online retailer, the seller is required to ship the firearm to a Federal Firearm Licensee (FFL) and this process is called a transfer.
The Trading Post offers transfers at a minimal cost of $25 per item.
Once you purchase your firearm, the online retailer may have The Trading Post listed already as a dealer. If that's the case, you select us and complete your transaction. If not, you will contact us and provide the seller's email address or fax number and we will send them a copy of our FFL. You can track the shipment or we can notify you when the firearm arrives.
When you come in to pick up your gun, we will conduct a background check (you will complete form 4473 and provide current state issued identification).
Further, The Trading Post will transfer a firearm from you to a licensed FFL for the same fee of $25.
