Gunshepherd.com promotes responsible ownership of guns and firearms, and ensures federal and state regulations governing firearms and other restricted items are followed using licensed firearms dealers as transfer agents.
Gunshepherd.com facilitates the legal exchange of firearms and accessories between adults. It is legal to buy and sell firearms in the US, provided you adhere to federal, state and local laws.
Transfer of firearms ownership requires an FFL holder:
A Federal Firearms License (FFL) transfer dealer is required for the transfer of firearms ownership between individuals.
Buyers should either have a FFL or find a FFL in their local area to receive and manage the transfer of the item for them before they place a bid or purchase an item. This typically means the buyer must contact a local FFL transfer dealer to make arrangements for the transfer.
Accessories such as: holsters, clips, sights, scopes, etc., often are not required to ship to a FFL. Non-firearm items such as: air guns, knives, ammunition, antique guns built before 1899, and some gun parts also do not require transfer by a licensed dealer but may require proof of age before shipping.
Please review the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) FAQ about transferring ownership of firearms by unlicensed persons: http://www.atf.gov/qa-category/unlicensed-persons.
If you have any questions or concerns about whether an item can be shipped to you, please contact your local FFL transfer dealer and/or ATF field office, or send a message directly to the seller.
