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 dealer, they must send us a copy of their FFL prior to shipment, if from an individual, we MUST have a legible copy of their driver’s license emailed to:, failure to do so, could result in our refusal to accept shipment, returning the firearms to sender, all at your expense. This email should include a description of what firearm is being shipped, serial number and who will be picking it up, as well as phone number and email address of who will be purchasing the firearm.
  2. Purchase the firearm of your choice from your 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 etc. will already have our FFL on file and we will not have to send them one. If it is not a company we do not do business with, they must request via email a copy 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 has been logged into our Blue Book. At this time we can discuss windows of time for you to come by and fill out the paperwork.
  4. You will be required to come to our facility located at 788 East St Memphis, TN and complete a ATF form 4473. You MUST bring with you, your valid Tennessee Driver’s license, that has your current correct address on it,(to change online or another official Tennessee issued identification card with your picture on it. We CANNOT transfer the firearm to you without this. 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. If you are picking up multiple firearms on the same day, we will run them all on the same back ground check, which is an additional $10 charge.If we perform the background check and the results are “Denied” we are still due the $10 TICS charge. Any/all appeals to TICS are your responsibility. We accept Cash, Check and major credit cards for this service.
