Federal law requires us to have a signed copy of a Federal Firearms License (FFL) from a dealer in your state to ship post-1898 firearms to if you do not have a C&R FFL of your own.

It is usually most convenient to do business with a FFL dealer that you already know and/or have done business with in the past.  Call local gun shops in your area that you are familiar with, and ask them if they will handle a transfer or you. Some FFL dealers will handle any transfer, others may only handle transfers under certain conditions (e.g- you are not buying something that they have in stock).  Each FFL dealer has their own policy concerning transferring firearms, and their own fee for their service. There may also be state or federal fees for the background check.  Make sure you understand any fees to be paid to the FFL dealer before agreeing to use their services.

When you and your FFL dealer have agreed on how the transfer will be handled, have them send us a signed FFL copy by snail mail to Stormy Mountain Sports, Box 95021, South Jordan, UT 84095-5021, or as a scanned in e-mail attachment, or they can FAX it to us at (801) 988-4538.

Once we have a copy of their FFL, your signed order form and payment we can ship the firearm(s) to your dealer.

After we ship the gun to your FFL dealer, they will have you fill out a 4473 form ("yellow sheet") to conduct the required federal "Brady" instant background check, and any other  paperwork required in your area before allowing you to take possession of the firearm. A few states have a waiting period after completing the paperwork before you can pick up the gun, but in most states you can take it home as soon as the paperwork is approved, usually taking just a few minutes. Make sure you understand the procedure used to comply with federal state and local laws. 

All of this may sound complicated but it is really very simple.  Most dealers are very familiar with these procedures, and understand exactly how it is all done.
