What is an FFL Transfer?

An FFL Transfer is a firearm transfer between ownership. Depending on the state law, some states require all exchanges of firearms to go through an FFL.  It is extremely important to have knowledge of the rules if you’re considering of buying, loaning, selling, or gifting a firearm out of state and instate.

FFL Transfer for firearms

What to Know

The licensee has to know where the firearm is coming from in order to log it into the records, which means an FFL will have a book with all the records in it. If you’re an individual looking to transfer a firearm to an FFL, you’ll need to provide a driver’s license. Just like sending a letter, you’ll need to provide information on where it is going to. A background check must be completed by the individual receiving the firearm as well.

Firearm purchasing can be done online now from an online dealer, which means it will have to go through an FFL for background checks and paperwork. Whether the firearm is new or used, this is the process for an exchange of firearms.

Reminder: check with your state laws about FFL transfers
