Buying A Gun Online

How to Buy a Gun Online

Buying a gun online is just as easy as buying anything else online. The one very important difference is FIREARMS CANNOT BE SHIPPED DIRECTLY TO THE BUYER. Firearms must be shipped to a federally licensed firearms dealer. During the checkout process, instead of entering your shipping address, you will select a firearms dealer in your area. We will ship your gun to the dealer you select. When you go to pick up your gun, you will be required to complete the Firearms Transaction Record (Form 4473) and pass the FBI background check. Most dealers charge a nominal fee to transfer a firearm.The process of transferring a firearm from the dealer to the buyer usually takes about 10-15 minutes. Some states have waiting periods that begin when the transfer process is complete. Other states do not have waiting periods and allow the buyer to take possession of the firearm as soon as the transfer process is complete.

Placing Your Order


  1. Find the gun you want and add it to your cart.
  2. On the Shopping Cart page, click the Proceed to Checkout button.
  3. Login to your account, or choose Guest Checkout.
  4. Enter your billing address information, then click Continue. Billing address must be verifiable and match the ID of the person filling out the 4473 form. P.O. Boxes can not be used for firearm sales.
  5. Enter your zip code and select the radius for your FFL search, then click Search.
  6. Select the FFL dealer that will receive your firearm and process your transfer, then click Continue. If the FFL Dealer is not on the list, you can type in your FFL's Information.
  7. Select your shipping method, then click Continue.
  8. Enter your payment information, then click Continue.
  9. Review your order, then click Place Order.

That's it! You will receive an order confirmation email shortly after you place your order. When your order ships, you will receive a shipping confirmation email with tracking information.

Things to Keep In Mind


  • It is YOUR responsibility to know the laws in your area regarding the purchase, transfer and ownership of firearms.
  • Unless you are positive that your chosen FFL dealer will process your transfer, you should contact them BEFORE placing your order. Ask if they will accept the shipment and process your transfer. You should also ask how much they will charge for the transfer. You are responsible for paying the transfer fee.
  • If you fail the background check, we will deduct the return shipping cost from your refund.
