How To Buy A Gun Online
1) Select your Firearm
Make sure the gun you choose has the features you want, such as caliber, magazine capacity, finish, barrel length, etc… You need to make sure the firearm is legal in your state or locality. This is the most important part of how to buy a gun online when you are ready to make the purchase. Some states have restrictions on magazine capacity or have “Assault Weapon” laws that may require certain modifications to the firearm such as pinning a collapsible stock or welding a flash hider.
2) Select a Receiving Dealer (FFL)
A firearm cannot be shipped to your home. Only a dealer with a Federal Firearms License (FFL) can receive the firearm for you. It is at this dealer that you will go to fill out the appropriate paperwork before the firearm can be transferred to you. You should contact your dealer prior to shipping a firearm to them to ensure the transaction is completed to everyone’s satisfaction and without any surprises. The dealer will most likely charge you a fee for this service.
