A Federal Firearms License transfer is necessary when a person wishes to purchase a firearm outside of the state they reside in or from a geographically-inconvenient FFL holder. DCF will assist customers with firearm transfers from licensed FFL dealers.
We will require a valid form of government-issued I.D. upon pickup of any transferred firearms. Only the person whose name is on the transferred item’s paperwork can legally pick up the firearm.
All state or locally required waiting periods begin when the purchaser visits DCF and completes the required Federal and State paperwork. Waiting periods do not begin when the firearm is paid for online or when the firearm is shipped.
There is a $75.00 fee for transfer-in items.

We will exchange FFL information with the original firearm dealer and the dealer will ship to our location.
We will contact you when the firearm has been checked in by our receiving department.
You will need to complete an ATF Form 4473 for the necessary background check. You must be the original purchaser.
You will be charged $75.00 for the firearm transfer fee PER FIREARM.
No Class III transfers.
Before purchasing your firearm online or with another dealer, be sure to visit one of our locations. We may be able to match or even beat the price and save you the transfer fee!
