There are two main kinds of transfers we can manage for you. The fee for handgun and lower receivers transfers is: $40.00, for long guns it is $50.00.

First is a transfer between two local individuals. This is when a local person is selling a firearm to another and both parties want to ensure the transaction is conducted legally. This protects both parties involved.
To do this type of transfer, both parties must come into the store. The seller/owner will bring the gun in to be transferred and their identification. We will receive the gun from them and log it into our books and give them a receipt showing it has been removed from their name.
The buyer/receiver can come in at the same time as the seller or can come at a later time. The buyer will fill out the federal firearm purchase form and present current identification and, if applicable, permit to purchase. We will verify the background check and, upon successful completion, transfer the firearm to the new owner.

The second kind of transfer is a long distance transfer. This occurs when a seller is too far away to bring the item in person. This is common when someone purchases a gun through an auction service, from a distant gun store or receives a firearm from an out of state party.

The shipping dealer MUST enclose an ink signed copy of their FFL along with an invoice or packing slip indicating the purchaser’s name, phone number and firearm details, including the serial number with the gun.

NOTE: Before we can receive a firearm from another dealer we must send that dealer a copy of our Federal Firearms License (FFL).

To initiate that process you, the buyer, must fill out a Firearms Transfer Form and return it to our store along with $40 transfer fee.

LIMITATIONS: We can only perform FFL transfers for US citizens with a valid Tennessee Drivers License or proof of Tennessee residency of 90 days or longer.
