Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

An “FFL” is a Federal Firearm License. There are currently over 58,000 FFL licensees nationwide. FFL holders are commonly gun stores, pawn shops, and retail sporting goods stores. However, there are also many individuals that hold an FFL. All firearms sold to individuals online, must be shipped to a local FFL holder, who will then transfer the firearm (via ATF form 4473, and associated background check) to the individual.

If you are having a firearm transferred to YouSmart Firearms; first, gather the contact information from the FFL, from where you are making the purchase. You can then contact us with their contact information (including the FFL’s name, address, fax number and/or email address, gun make, model, serial (if known) and part number (if any). We will then forward our FFL number to them, and they will be responsible for making sure your firearm is shipped. If you are purchasing the firearm from YouSmart Firearms, then please provide us with the information of the FFL where the firearm will be shipped to.

YouSmart Firearms charges $45.00 transfer fee.

Before you are able to take possession of your firearm from your dealer, you’ll be required to pass a background check. This is a fairly simple process. At YouSmart Firearms you will fill out an electronic 4473 form, and that will be submitted to the FBI NICS. Typically you receive one of the following responses – approved, delayed, or denied. Please check your state and local regulations as well, since several states/locals have additional requirements.
