Gun Transfers – PLEASE READ
Before ordering a new gun from another dealer or on the internet, please know that OTS consistently carries an extensive selection of firearms from almost every manufacturer in the industry, and will do our best to meet or beat online offerings. If we don’t have it immediately in stock, we have the ability to order anything commercially available from our distributors and usually have it delivered to you within a week.
If we can’t assist you with a purchase however, OTS is glad to help facilitate your transfer. You will be responsible for handling the financial portion of the purchase of the gun directly with the seller. You’ll then send your seller a copy of our FFL (link to PDF listed below) and they’ll send the gun to us. We’ll give you a call when it’s been received and checked in, and you then pick it up at OTS. If you are purchasing/receiving a gun from a private seller/individual (NOT a FFL dealer), they must include a copy of there of there driver’s license or other government issued ID showing their date of birth and current address.
The cost of an incoming transfer is $45.00 per gun (does NOT include Class III/NFA weapons) and includes your FDLE call-in fee. You are still subject to a Florida-mandated three business-day wait, but the waiting period does begin when you pay for the gun. We do accept transfers directly from civilians (non-FFLs) with proper identification. Outgoing transfers are $50.00 per gun plus applicable shipping.
You MUST be a resident of the State of Florida with a valid Florida Driver’s License showing your CURRENT address. Expired licenses are NOT a valid form of identification.
If you are in the military and stationed in the area, you can process a transfer. To do so, you must bring us ALL of the following:
- Your current driver’s license or passport
- A copy of your PCS orders showing your stationing in the Jacksonville area
***TRANSFER PICK-UPs MUST BE NO LATER THAN 30 MINUTES PRIOR TO CLOSING TO ALLOW FOR PAPERWORK PROCESSING AND BACKGROUND CHECK.***
FOR OUTGOING TRANSFERS, YOU MUST PROVIDE US WITH THE RECEIVING FFL DEALER’S LICENSE, OR THEY MAY EMAIL IT TO US DIRECTLY. UNFORTUNATELY, WE ARE NOT ABLE TO CONTACT OR REACH OUT TO A RECEIVING FFL DEALER ON YOUR BEHALF TO OBTAIN THEIR LICENSE. WE DO NOT ACCEPT OR PROCESS OUTGOING TRANSFERS ON WEEKENDS. TRANSFERS GOING TO CALIFORNIA OR PUERTO RICO ARE SUBJECT TO ADDITIONAL PROCESSING CHARGES.
