Thank you for choosing to utilize Gunslinger Enterprises, LLC (Gunslinger Depot) for your FFL transfer process. Please follow these guidelines. They will make sure all three parties (buyer, seller, and Gunslinger Depot) are coordinated in their efforts.
Items that can be shipped to our business:
• Long guns, Hand guns, Receivers/Frames.
Items that can NOT be shipped to our business:
• NFA / Class III and related items.
• If any of these items are shipped to us; we reserve the right to destroy these item(s) at our discretion.
Fees for Transfers and Storage of items:
• Long Gun / Hand Gun / Receiver Other Item Fee(s): $25.00 for each transferable item
• Items left after 28 calendar days will incur a monthly storage fee, per transferable item(s), $25.00 per month starting on the 1st day and each month thereafter with a minimum one month service charge.
Seller – Shipping Item(s):
1. The Seller will be shipping the item(s) to Gunslinger Depot; not the Buyer.
2. Packages must be shipped with a tracking method and the tracking number must be sent to Gunslinger Depot at the time of shipment.
2.1. USPS is our preferred courier for handguns. But only FFLs can use this option.
2.2. FedEx, or UPS are required for long guns, they also ship handguns for Individuals.
2.3. Regardless of courier, handguns must ship 2nd day or better shipping method.
3. Do not include the buyer’s name or contact phone number on the shipping label. This only confuses the delivery drivers. Sometimes to the point that firearms have been delivered to the buyer’s house rather than Gunslinger Depot. Not sure how many laws the courier broke when they did that.
4. Seller can be:
4.1. Active Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) – FFL holder must forward a copy of their License to us. This can be done either by sending electronically (email) or including a paper copy in the shipment. If the license is not received, prior to the transfer, we cannot complete transfer. We are not responsible for problems that occur in getting the license from the FFL.
