Firearm Transfers

Gas & Brass Armory is more than happy to help you with your firearm  transfers from other Federal Firearm License (FFL)  dealers or Private Sellers.


Please read below and complete our Firearm Transfer Request 






Firearms Transfer Fees:

$35 Per Firearm

Background Fee:


 $20 Storage Fee for all Transfers picked up after 10 days from you being notified of us receiving firearm.

We are not accepting transfers of pistols that have pistol braces. Any firearm shipped to us with a brace will not be accepted and you will need to make arrangements with seller to have it returned.


Once you have purchased a firearm from another dealer, the  selling dealer will need a copy of our FFL before your firearm can be shipped.  Use our Transfer Request Form above to send us the order information and email of the seller to  send our FFL for shipment. 

Note: If purchasing from a Private Seller: We will require a  Valid/Current photo ID of the seller with the  shipment.

Private Sellers do not require a copy of our FFL to ship a  firearm to us and we will not provide it. We only provide our FFL to other FFL  holders.

When the firearm arrives at R&R Sports, we will contact you  to arrange transfer. Wait until you are contacted, or give us a call if you have  not been contacted within 1 day of delivery notice - do not just show  up.

It is the buyer’s responsibility to make sure the seller  received the FFL, payment, and all information necessary for the seller to ship  the firearm.  The seller will usually put your contact information in with the  shipment for us to contact you.   From time to time, the buyers contact  information may be incorrect.  It is recommended that the buyer follow up with  the seller first, then us if the transaction isn’t going as expected.  If  contact information was incorrect or not provided, we have no way to let you  know.

When you come to pick up your firearm, we will provide you with  a form 4473 (Firearms Transaction Record) to fill out.  The rightful owner of  the firearm MUST be the one to fill out the form, in their own handwriting.  If  you need assistance, please let us know and we will be happy to help.  We will  verify the form has been filled out correctly and then submit a background check  on-line.  Once the background check has been approved and the 5 day wait has  been satisfied (or waived), payment for the transfer is made, the consumer may  leave the store with the firearm.


IMPORTANT things you need to  know:

You must be a Florida resident to pick up handguns and  receivers.  Non-residents can purchase/transfer rifles and  shotguns.

The actual named purchaser of the firearm MUST pick up the gun,  no substitutions.

The address on your ID MUST be current.  If it's not, you must  provide state issued documentation of your current address (e.g. tax bill, voter  registration, car registration).  Commercial mail is not  acceptable.

Don't worry about filling out the ATF form 4473 before you  arrive at the store.  It MUST be done at the store.  

If you've had issues related to mistaken identity or identity  theft, your background check may be delayed by up to 72 hours (weekdays).  The  delay starts after the background check is complete.

Cash is preferred but we also accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover  and AMEX.

There is no firearm registry in Florida.  Florida Statute  790.335 (Prohibition of registration of firearms; electronic records)  specifically identifies firearms registration as illegal and a violation of your  constitutional 2nd Amendment rights (under most  circumstances).


Things that cause delays in picking up  guns: 

Expired ID or ID doesn't match current address. Bring  government issued proof of address (see below)

Problems with background check.

No proof of payment.  The seller may provide a DATED and PAID  receipt.  If this evidence is not obtainable, the 5-day wait will start when  evidence of payment made at R&R Sports. 


Background checks:

EVERYONE picking up gun(s) locally gets a background check; NO  EXCEPTIONS.

A Florida Concealed Weapons License waives the 5 day wait but  does NOT eliminate the background check.

A background check is $5 – this is the fee FDLE (Florida  Department of Law Enforcement) charges for submitting the check to NICS  (National Instant Criminal Background Check System), operated by the  FBI.

A background check is good for 1 transaction or 30 days,  whichever occurs first.  A transaction is 1 business  day.

We do background checks on-line.  In the event that the  internet is down, we can perform background checks over the  phone.

A background check usually takes a few minutes.  However, the  number of background checks submitted to FDLE at any point in time may affect  how quickly a result is returned.   If the FDLE system or the NICS system is  down, background checks will not go through until NICS and/or FDLE have been  restored.  A delay such as this can last a few hours but usually not more than a  day.  The background check and 5-day wait are NOT  related.

A firearm cannot be released by us until the background check  is approved by FDLE.

NFA Class II Firearms & Transfers 

Gas & Brass Armory is now selling NFA Class III Firearms including Suppressors - SBR's (Short Barrel Rifle) & SBS (Short Barrel Shotgun)

Purchase the NFA item from Gas & Brass Armory & there are no Transfer Fee's.

Transfer Fees for purchases not from Gas & Brass Armory
1. Form 4 - $100 Per Form (For Trusts - $5 Per additional Responsible Person)

The ATF forms usually used in dealing with these weapons are

1) ATF Form 1 – Maker Form – used by non manufactures to make NFA weapons – for civilians, only Short Barrel Rifles, Short Barreled Shotguns, Silencers and AOWs can still be made (after May 1986).  The ‘one time’ tax stamp for this form is $200.  Maker will received an approved form back from ATF and he/she can then make the item in question. Once made, if transfer of ownership is ever needed, this would be facilitated on a Form 4 below.

2) ATF Form 2 – Manufacturer Registration Form – used by manufacturers only.

3) ATF Form 3 – Dealer to Dealer tax-free form.  Any SOT can transfer to any other SOT tax free NFA weapons he/she has in their possession/ownership.  This is usually done when someone buys an item and it is transferred from a dealer in one state to a dealer in the buyer’s state to facilitate the approval/filing process.

4) ATF Form 4 – Tax paid to/from individual form – used when a NFA item is transferred TO or FROM an individual.  Even if the individual transfers the said item to a SOT holder/dealer, there still is a $200 transfer tax.  Once the SOT has it, they can transfer it back out to another SOT holder tax free (Form 3) or directly to another individual in their state on a tax paid (Form 4).

5) ATF Form 5 – Used to transfer NFA items to police departments for official use – tax fee transfer.  Dealer use only.

6) ATF Form 5320 – Used in the Interstate Transportation of all Title II firearms. If you are traveling between states, you WILL need to fill this form out a few weeks in advance.
NFA weapons must remain in the possession of the registered owner so short of just a few exceptions; you may not permit anyone to have possession of your weapon without you being in immediate presence.
