What is an FFL ?

A "FFL" is a Federal Firearm License. There are currently over 58,000 FFL holders nationwide. FFL holders are commonly gun stores, pawn shops, and retail sporting goods stores. However, there are also many individuals that hold a FFL. All firearms sold to individuals online must be shipped to a local FFL holder who will then transfer the firearm (via ATF form 4473 and associated background check) to the individual.

How do I arrange to have a local FFL handle my transfer ?

This is your responsibility when making a firearm purchase. Simply choose a local FFL and have them contact us or email us a copy of their FFL to FFL@hallowedgroundcustoms.com. Please communicate with your chosen FFL prior to completing your purchase with us. You will want to ask for their approval of the transfer as well as their transfer fee.

What is a FFL transfer fee ?

A FFL transfer fee is a fee assessed to you by an FFL to cover the cost associated with receiving a firearm, inspecting it, adding it into the stores system, documenting the transfer, and submitting a background check for the firearm.

What is the average FFL transfer fee ?

Although the transfer fee varies widely among the +58,000 FFL holders nationwide, the average fee tends to be around $25. For their exact transfer fee, please contact your chosen FFL directly.

How do I know if I can legally purchase a firearm?

Before you're able to take possession of your firearm from your dealer you'll be required to pass a background check. This is a fairly simple process. You'll fill out the provided form and your dealer will submit the information to FBI NICS. Typically, while your dealer is on the phone he'll receive one of the following responses - approved, delayed, or denied. If a proceed response is given, you are free to take possession of your firearm. A delayed response simply means more time to research is needed before a proceed/denied response is issued (this could take several days). If a denied response is given, you will not be able to take possession of the firearm. Please check your state and local regulations as well, several states/locals have additional requirements.
