Federal Firearms License (FFL) Dealer Services

Transfer Policies

Lakota Safe Company LLC will handle the transfer of a firearm on your behalf from individuals or FFL dealers.  Our transfer policies are below. Please feel free to give us a call if  you have any additional questions.

Transferring a firearm from a FFL dealer

Please request that the dealer enclose a copy of their current FFL (Federal Firearms License) along with your name and phone number so we may contact you once your firearm arrives.  There is a formal process we must follow before you can pick up your firearm. We will call you once your firearm has been received into our ATF Electronic Inventory System. This takes place within 1-2 business day of receipt of your firearm. During busy times this may take a little longer. Please understand that we have hundreds of guns to process each week and our staff works diligently to ensure that each one is received in a timely manner while staying in compliance with all State and Federal regulations.

If you are receiving accessories or ammunition with your firearm, please request that the dealer send non-serialized items directly to your home. We are unable to inventory and keep track of non-serialized items that are not invoiced directly to our company. Additional fees may be charged for additional packages that are not in the box with your firearm.

Transferring a firearm from an individual (Non-FFL)

Federal law DOES allow an individual to ship a firearm through common carrier, as long as the receiving party has a valid FFL.  The individual shipping the firearm should enclose a copy of their State Photo Identification along with the purchaser’s name and phone number. Note: we are unable to send a copy of our FFL to anyone other than other Federally Licensed Dealers.

If the individual selling you the item needs to confirm the validity of our FFL , they may do so by visiting https://www.atfonline.gov/fflezcheck/   – They will need to call our store location and ask for the first 3 and last 5 digits of our FFL.

Pricing

Pricing is listed below and are non-negotiatable. This fee includes the FDLE background check required on all firearm transfers.  After the initial 30 days, an additional $25 storage fee will be added to the price of the transfer fee. After 90 days, the item(s) will be considered abandoned and becomes property of Lakota Safe Company LLC.

Outgoing Transfers

As a Federally Licensed Dealer, we are only able to ship firearms to other Federally Licensed Dealers. Once we have received payment for your item, we will need to find a dealer to ship it to. If you have a preferred dealer, please contact us with their phone number so we may exchange licenses with them or, you can have them fax or email their license – (407-347-3568) or email: contact.us@lakotasafes.com  We will be happy to locate a dealer to receive your transfer based on a ship to zip code.

We can assist you with additional services:

  • -Transfer a firearm between individuals (Private Party Transfer Sale)
  • -Send out a firearm for gunsmith work or customization
  • -Send off for warranty repair
Shipping, Insurance and Additional Fees

We utilize UPS, USPS and FedEx for shipping. Each shipper requires next-day service to ship handguns.  Long guns may be shipped ground. Prices vary depending on the part of the country the shipment is being sent to, amount of insurance you would like on the item, and size and weight of the firearm.

Shipping must include “adult signature required” and does not include insurance on the shipment.  You must elect the amount of shipping insurance prior to the shipment.  Lakota Safe Company LLC does not pay for any insurance on the shipment.  We will need all of this information in order to quote you accurate shipping costs.

*Firearms purchased at Lakota Safe Company LLC location that requires shipment for warranty repair are not subject to the $35 transfer fee. Shipping and handling charges may be incurred.
