How to Initiate a Firearm Transfer

STEPS in buying from an online dealer and using DSS as a transfer agent

  1. You must make arrangements with us before buying an FFL item and having it shipped to us for pickup. If purchasing from a FFL Dealer, they must send us a copy of their CURRENT FFL LICENSE prior to shipment. If from an INDIVIDUAL, we MUST have a legible copy of THEIR CURRENT DRIVER’S LICENSE emailed to: info@DillardSecurity.com, failure to do so, could result in our refusal to accept shipment, returning the firearms to sender, all at your expense. This email should ALSO include the MODEL of what firearm is being shipped, the gun’s SERIAL NUMBER and NAME of PURCHASER (who will be picking it up), as well as the PURCHASER’S PHONE NUMBER, CURRENT ADDRESS and EMAIL ADDRESS.
  2. Or purchase the firearm of your choice from an Online Dealer and pay for it using your preferred method of payment. If purchasing from many of the larger online sites (ie. Bud’s Gunshop, Grab a Gun, Gunbroker, Palmetto State Armory, etc.) They will already have our FFL on file and we will not have to send them one. If it is a company we Do NOT do business with, they must request via email a copy  of our FFL and we will email it to them, we will NOT give our FFL out for you to send.
  3. We will notify you when the firearm arrives and it has been logged into our Blue Book (Inventory System).  After That, we will call you to discuss scheduling a time for you to come by and fill out the Paperwork and take the required TICS Background Check.
  4. You will be required to come to our facility located at 788 East Street, Memphis, TN. and complete an ATF Form 4473 and a TICS Background Check. You MUST bring with you, your valid, current Tennessee Driver’s license, that has your CURRENT Correct Address on it, (to change DL address online https://dl.safety.tn.gov  under “Driver Services) or another Official Tennessee State Issued Current Identification Card or Federal ID with your picture on it. Out of State Military please bring your Current Military ID and a copy of your PCS Base Orders. We CANNOT TRANSFER the firearm to you Without This Documentation. If you were born outside of the United States, please bring Immigration Visa/Papers or a Current US Passport.  Allow 30~45 minutes processing time for this step at our facility.
  5. We will charge a FFL Transfer Fee of $50.00 (including TICS) for EACH firearm we transfer for you (3% added for CC). If you are picking up multiple firearms on the same day, we will run them all on the same TICS Background Check. If we perform the Background Check and the results are “Denied”, we are still due the $10 TICS charge but We CANNOT RELEASE the Gun until it is “APPROVED”. Your Firearm will be held in our Vault and We will provide a TICS APPEALS Form to submit and supplement the Background Check for “Approval”.  Any/all appeals to TICS are your responsibility. You will be notified if “Approved or Denied” within 30 Days, the firearm’s transfer will proceed accordingly. We accept Cash and major Credit/Debit Cards (3% fee added) for this service.
