FFL Transfers and how to make it simple if you follow the instructions below!
Before buying your gun online and going through the transfer process, contact us to see if we can meet or beat the pricing. Help your local gun store here in Killeen, Texas 🙂
Don’t forget to check out our Military/Leo/1st Responder/etc. page to see if you qualify for a discounted gun through us rather than spending online pricing.
PLEASE READ!!! TRANSFER FEE PROCESS UPDATE DUE TO COVID-19
DUE TO COVID-19 AND THE EASILY SPREAD OF IT, PLEASE BARE WITH US AND DO NOT COME IN WHEN YOU RECEIVE A “DELIVERY CONFIRMATION.” PLEASE WAIT FOR US TO CALL YOU.
- Please read all the information below to make sure you have the necessary documentation needed for your transfer. Failure to do so will cause even more delays.
With the ATF getting overloaded with background checks, those without a Texas CHL/LTC may automatically get a delayed status. The majority of others will get at “proceed” but for those who don’t, just be aware that we cannot speed up that process if the ATF provides a “Delayed” status.
Standard Procedures for FFL Transfers
If you would like to purchase your firearm from another company and have it shipped to us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/customdefensefirearms so we can send a copy of our FFL to the Seller/Shipper.
Our fee is $35 for the first serialized item. If there are additional on the same transaction, an additional $5 per serialized item with a max of four.
*Transfers from us to another FFL will be charged $35 for the transfer fee, the actual shipping costs through FedEx Ground with signature confirmation and insurance. Handguns/Pistols must ship Two-Day Air. Boxes, bags, packing material, etc. will be extra.
Requirements for receiving or picking up your transferred item:
- Valid TX ID or TX DL and/or Valid TX CHL/LTC
- If your address is incorrect on the above identification, it is NOT VALID.
For Military/Service Members who DO NOT have a Valid TX ID/DL/CHL you will need to bring all of the following:
- Copy of your Active Duty Orders assigning you to Fort Hood/Texas
- Valid Military ID
- Valid DL
- Address Verification Document. EX: (Utility Bill, Electric Bill, Car Insurance, etc.)
If you do not have a Valid Texas CHL/LTC, with the documentation above, we will enter your information into the system for your background check.
Sometimes the background check will come back immediately and sometimes it will not. This is out of our control and is not an often occurrence except during this current COVID-19 crisis.
*We WILL NOT ship to California.
- Shipping for a pistol is on average $45-85 as they go 2-Day Air
