Private Transfers (Person to person)
We can assist with person to person transfers.
Please call us for additional information. $50.00/serial
Step 1: FFL Transfer Requirements
Transfers will only be accepted from other licensed FFL stores. Sending FFL parties are required to provide a copy of their current FFL license prior to releasing the firearm. This can be mailed, faxed or e-mailed.
Step 2: FFL Purchase & Transfer Process
For those who have purchased a firearm from another FFL, it is required the sending party encloses a copy of an invoice along with their FFL license. When the weapon arrives, you will need to complete all necessary FFL paperwork prior to pick-up.
Step 3: Mandatory Paperwork
In accordance with Washington State law, customers are required to pay a 10.3% tax to the state of Washington for the assessed market value of the firearm(s) in addition to any other charges listed on the invoice such as shipping or credit card fee.
For those you simply having a used weapon transferred through to us from another FFL, you are still required to generate an invoice to be enclosed along with their FFL. If this is not available, you may need to use our Market Value and (Non-FFL) services.
Firearms that do not include an invoice or bill of sale from the sending FFL will need to use our "Market Value Assessment" service. We will generate an invoice based on the average of three common market prices from other vendors. We will then base your total amount taxable on the determined market average.
Firearms shipped without a current FFL enclosed, there is an additional $25.00 fee
Firearms that are shipped from a private party (non-FFL) will be charged an additional $25.00 fee.
Step 4: The weapons shipped. Now what?
We receive several large shipments each day. We ask that you wait at least 48 hours from the date of delivery for any FFL transfer before attempting to pick it up. Please feel free to call when it arrives and if we can get to it sooner, we would be happy to assist you.
We ask that you be proactive in tracking the weapons delivery status. Please obtain a tracking number from shipping FFL and let us know when we should be expecting it.
Expect a longer processing time if the incoming item is missing paperwork (such as an invoice, FFL, etc).
Step 5: Pick-Up
When you come to the store, you will need to pay your transfer fee which is $50.00/serial number.
From that point on point, the process will be similar process to if you purchased the weapon from us directly. All rules and regulations apply.
