Firearm Transfers

Vance Outdoors offers FFL transfer services for firearms purchased online or from out-of-state dealers. Our FFL transfer fee is $50 per firearm* ($125 for NFA items), and we strive to make the process as smooth and hassle-free as possible.

Once your firearm has arrived at our store, we will promptly contact you to schedule a pick-up time that works for you. Our knowledgeable staff is also available to answer any questions you may have regarding the transfer process.

Please Note: For NFA transfers, we are only able to accept suppressors and short barreled shotguns. We do not accept transfers for short barreled rifles or machine guns. Additionally, we do not accept transfer of firearms without a serial number. We apologize for any inconvenience.
