Purchase Instructions – Firearms

Firearms purchases on the HuronValleyGuns.com website cannot be shipped directly to the purchaser (unless the purchaser has a valid Federal Firearms License (FFL). By law, we must ship the firearm(s) ONLY to individuals or agencies (i.e. gun dealers) in possession of a valid FFL. At which point, that FFL dealer will process the transfer paperwork for the purchaser, in accordance with their Local, State and Federal firearms regulations.


Instructions for purchasing firearms on HuronValleyGuns.com:

  1. Find the firearm(s) you would like to purchase and complete the checkout and payment process (see Payment Methods below).

    **IMPORTANT - Federal and State firearms regulations require that the person making the purchase MUST be the same person taking delivery of the firearm (including the payment method being used, matching the same person). Additional information can be viewed at "Don't Lie for the Other Guy"**

  2. If you do not know of an FFL Dealer near you, use the ATF's "Listing of Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) - 2017" site to find one to contact.
  3. Contact the FFL dealer to see if they would be willing to process the transfer and legal paperwork for you, and what their fee to do so would be. (Be aware that it is customary for your local FFL dealer to charge a nominal transfer/processing fee at the time you take delivery of your purchase. This transfer fee is strictly between you and your local FFL dealer. It is your responsibility to check with your local FFL dealer concerning their policy for this service and your obligations.)
  4. If you agree to the FFL Dealer's processing fee and terms, forward a copy (by fax or e-mail) of their valid FFL (along with all their pertinent contact and shipping address information) to Huron Valley Guns (see contact info below).
  5. At YOUR request, Huron Valley Guns will ship your purchased firearm(s) to the licensed FFL dealer, in your state, that you have selected. Make sure your FFL Dealer aware of the transaction and of the pending shipment.
