Noob question regarding FFL and firearm transfer
« on: December 04, 2019, 08:31:20 PM »
Sorry for the ignorant question but here goes. I get it that if I sell a gun we can both go down to an FFL dealer and get all the transfer stuff taken care of. My question is if I post a gun for sale on this website and someone 5 hours away wanted to buy it, does the FFL ship it to another FFL that the other person did a background check through? Sorry for a dumb question but Iím not 100% sure how this thing is supposed go. Thanks guys.

I believe itís up to the FFL on the receiving end, but you may be able to ship it yourself to the FFL on the buyers end. Otherwise yes, FFL to FFL but at that point it better be a screaming deal because itís going to cost $ on both ends.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

As long as the receiving FFL will accept from an individual, you can just ship it directly to the FFL. The receiving FFL will not run the background check until they have the firearm in their possession.

Be careful
I recommend FFL to FFL
I had a guy who contacted me to buy my Weatherby MK V .257
Said he was an FFL sent me his paperwork and copy of his FFL certificate
Matched it through the FFL database
Told him that Iíd only ship once his cashiers check cleared my bank
Turns out it was a fraud as I suspected
I turned him in to ATF
And he was not who he said he was -not FFL
Identify theft and fraud
Thatís why I personally only do face to face gun sales and transfers
Be careful

A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

Iíve done a lotta deals across the country and maybe 5 were face to face and the only time Iíve been ripped off was when I sent a guy a box of rocks(obsidian). PayPal has been good to me for all my dealings.
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen

An ounce of prevention bud
Iíve driven from Silverdale to Kelso a couple times for a good deal
And usually if Iím the seller the buyer comes to me and vice versa
For me same with transfer fees buyer pays the fee
Iíve made some good deals on this forum both ways
Good luck

I have bought guns and sold guns on yhis forum and other forums. I have mailed gun to their FFL guy all across the country and had guns shipped to my FFL.guy.
If you ship a gun you have to include a copy of your ID, they can not transfer the gun with no seller information
 
I got the C&R Permit so now I send them a copy of my permit and I get the guns eligble sent right to my house. A great thing to have for only $30 for three years. One transfer pays for the permit.

How hard is it to fill out the paperwork for FFL. If I wanted to buy a gun off gunbroker and have it shipped to a dealer near me ??

I've seen as low as $20, and as high as $75.  Call and check the prices.
