FFL dealer/shipping or receiver search–$30
Finding an FFL holder to receive guns consigned to be shipped through the US Mail in a timely manner is the responsibility of the gun owner. Searching for an FFL holder can be arduous and very time-consuming. We will provide the service for $30. However, We are not responsible for how the receiving party treats your guns. For instance, if we locate a receiving party for your package stateside, it is your responsibility to be aware of their state gun laws and the receiver’s policies. They will probably treat it as a transfer even though it is already your gun and not a true transfer.
Handguns treated as a transfer may only be transferred to a resident of the state in which they are receiving it after paperwork, a background check, and compliance to any other state and local laws.
