Buying a Firearm, Online.

By Federal law, it is illegal to ship a handgun directly to you by mail or private carrier, which means:

  1. Any firearm you purchase will need to be shipped to your local firearms retailer (a.k.a. an ‘FFL’, or ‘Federal Firearm Licensee’), and..
  2. The purchaser (you) will need to personally appear to acquire your firearm. Please remember to bring with you appropriate ID. Once completing the transfer paperwork and paying the retailer a fee that typically ranges between $25-50 per firearm transfer, you’ll be on your way!

Firearms shipped to Authorized Pinkgun Retailers for pickup avoid transfer fees!





  1. Once you know the EXACT ‘make and model’ of the gun you want to buy (for example,’make: Sig Sauer, model: SP2022′) write that down.
  2. If you have a favorite local firearms retailer, you may add the note or email us with your order number with details on where you would like your delivery.   Visiting the BATF website
  3. Call the FFLs and tell them, “I would like to have a [INSERT MAKE AND MODEL HERE] shipped and transferred to me for pickup at your store. Do you accept firearms shipments from other FFLs, and if so, what is your total fee for this service? Also, can you confirm it is legal to own a [INSERT MAKE AND MODEL HERE] in my area?”
  4. Make your selection and ask this dealer to send a copy of their signed FFL to the dealer you bought your gun from, prior to shipment (which is part of their obligations as a ‘receiver’ and service provider.)
