Be aware that it is customary for your local dealer to charge a transfer fee at the time you pick up your purchase. This transfer fee is strictly between you and your local dealer. Please check with your local dealer concerning their policies. You do not pay GunsInc.com the transfer fee. Certain dealers also apply sales tax. This is between you and your FFL dealer. GunsInc.com only collects sales tax if you reside in the state of Pennsylvania.
The buyer can speed up the process by contacting their transferring FFL to request they send a copy of their FFL to us via email.

We strive to ship orders as soon as they are received. The average processing time is currently 7-10 business days after the order has been placed. The total time it takes to receive your order is the processing time plus the shipping time. For example, if it takes 4 business days to process your order and 3 business days to ship your order, you would receive your order 7 business days after it was placed. This is just an example. Your order could arrive sooner or later than the example. Please also remember that placing your order on a weekend (or a Friday night) is the same as placing it on a Monday morning. All times are figured on business days.
