What is an FFL?

A Federal Firearms License, FFL, is a license granted by the Federal Government through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF). A FFL is required for businesses involved in the sale or transfer of firearms.

FFL owners can be your local gun store, retail sporting store, a pawn shop and even individuals that have gone through the training and background check, like Burning Bullet, LLC. All firearms sold to individuals must be shipped to an FFL holder who will then transfer the firearm, through the ATF background process, to the individual who purchased said firearm.

How do I arrange to have my firearm transferred?

If  you purchased a firearm from another dealer and you’re having it shipped to Burning Bullet, we will serve as your FFL and will manage the transfer process with you and your firearm dealer. You will need to complete an ATF background check in our Boise, Idaho location.

If you’re not in the Boise area to pick up your firearm from Burning Bullet, you can find a local FFL dealer at: FFL Gun Remember, you will need to communicate to your chosen FFL prior to finalizing your purchase with us. We will contact your selected FFL and exchange license and contact information with them. It’s also a good idea for you to find out how much of a transfer fee they charge and to let them know a firearm is heading their way.

If buying online from us and having your firearm delivered to your local FFL, you will need to complete your ATF background check with them, not with Burning Bullet.

Can I have my firearm shipped to my home?

No! All Firearms must be shipped to a verified Federal Firearm License (FFL) holder.

Do you accept payments from PayPal, Square & Shopify?
