Person to Person FFL Transfers- $59

Member Rate $35

Do you desire to or have you sold a personal firearm of yours? Do
want to be positive the buyer is not a prohibited person? The Bullet
Ranch offers the Federal Firearms License (FFL) transfer service to Ohio
residents for handguns, and US residents for long guns. Transferring
your firearm via the FFL transfer, which includes the FBI NICS
background check, protects both you as a seller, and your buyer.

What is a transfer? A firearm transfer, simply speaking, is the change

Since the Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA), firearms that travel interstate
(across state lines) must be transferred using a Federal Firearms
Licensee (FFL). This means that firearm transactions (gift, loan, sale,
etc.) that happen within the same state don’t require an FFL. It is
completely legal in the State of Ohio to sell your personal property to
any other legal person.

    the buyer wants to pick up. This 24 hour period allows us to run the

    and ready for pickup, even if the full business day has not passed yet.Questions? Email Sales@TheBulletRanch.Com or call 740-964-1787 during
