This fee MUST be paid that same day and will not be refunded regardless of the NICS approval.

4. PRE-TRANSFERAs a common rule of etiquette for ordering firearms online, it is always best to contact the receiving FFL Dealer prior to ordering. We kindly ask this same courtesy from our clients, but through the use of the forms found on the Transfer In page. All new Clients must fill out one of these forms, prior to setting an appointment for pickup.
5. FIREARM PROCESSING
Please DO NOT simply show up upon notification of delivery of your firearm. When your shipment has been delivered, we still need ample time to process the item(s) into our system. Current estimated processing times are about one (1) business day.We kindly ask that you please be patient and wait for us to contact you to schedule a time to perform the NICS background check and take legal possession of your firearm(s). We will do everything we can to make the process go as quickly as possible. * ALL TRANSFER FEES MUST BE PAID FOR IN CASH
6. USED ITEMS
It is the BUYER’S/TRANSFEREE’S responsibility to check used firearms prior to accepting the firearm. Prior to leaving the premises, please check the following carefully:• Overall function – trigger/reset, slide/action function, magazine fit/drop & function, etc • Significant damage – enough that it may hinder the firearm’s ability to operate correctly • Lost/Missing/Broken pieces – magazines, sights, accessories, etc All firearm dispositions are final. If you are not comfortable with the condition or function of a firearm at time of pickup DO NOT COMPLETE THE TRANSFER. Once the firearm has been legally transferred to you, the Seller is no longer able to take it back on return, offer a refund or fix damaged/broken parts and it must now be sold as used, even if unfired.
7. BACKGROUND CHECKSA background check & ATF form 4473 MUST be preformed every time you have a serialized firearm or part transferred in. Please read every question carefully and answer them honestly to avoid denial of transfer and possible fines & imprisonment.
8. DELAYED RESPONSE
A “Delayed” message from the NICS indicates the subject of a NICS background check has been matched with a similar name and similar descriptive information associated with a record containing a potential state or federal firearm prohibition.The NICS Section must obtain additional information before making a final determination of a Proceed or Denied for the firearm transfer. The NICS Section is afforded three business days in which to conduct this research. If the NICS Section is unable to provide either a Proceed or Denied response to the Federal Firearms Licensee within three business days, the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993 does not prohibit the Federal Firearms Licensee, or FFL, from transferring the firearm; however, the FFL is not required to do so. A delayed transaction will be purged from the NICS within 88 days from creation. The NICS Section recommends that you wait 30 days from the date initiating the check prior to filing an appeal on a delay to give the NICS Section’s staff time to complete the initial transaction. If your original background check is completed, the Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) will be notified with a final status. * THE NICS SYSTEM DOES NOT PROVIDE THE DEALER A REASON FOR DELAY
9. DENIED RESPONSE
A “Denied” message from the NICS indicates the subject of a NICS background check has been matched with a similar name and similar descriptive information of a record containing a state or federal prohibition and the FFL may NOT transfer the firearm to the individual.A federal prohibition would exist for any person who: • Has been convicted in any court of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year • Is a fugitive from justice Is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance • Has been adjudicated as a mental defective or committed to a mental institution • Is an alien illegally or unlawfully in the United States or who has been admitted to the United States under a non-immigrant visa • Has been discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions • Having been a citizen of the United States, has renounced U.S. citizenship • Is subject to a court order that restrains the person from harassing, stalking, or threatening an intimate partner or child of such intimate partner • Has been convicted in any court of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence • Is under indictment for a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year * THE NICS SYSTEM DOES NOT PROVIDE THE DEALER A REASON FOR DENIAL
