HOW THE PROCESS WORKS:
Once you have purchased a firearm from another dealer, the selling dealer will need a copy of our FFL before your firearm can be shipped. Use our contact page to send us the order information and email of the seller to send our FFL for shipment.
Note: If purchasing from a Private Seller: We will require a Valid/Current photo ID of the seller with the shipment.
Private Sellers do not require a copy of our FFL to ship a firearm to us and we will not provide it. We only provide our FFL to other FFL holders.
When the firearm arrives at R&R Sports, we will contact you to arrange transfer. Wait until you are contacted, or give us a call if you have not been contacted within 1 day of delivery notice - do not just show up.
It is the buyer’s responsibility to make sure the seller received the FFL, payment, and all information necessary for the seller to ship the firearm. The seller will usually put your contact information in with the shipment for us to contact you. From time to time, the buyers contact information may be incorrect. It is recommended that the buyer follow up with the seller first, then us if the transaction isn’t going as expected. If contact information was incorrect or not provided, we have no way to let you know.
When you come to pick up your firearm, we will provide you with a form 4473 (Firearms Transaction Record) to fill out. The rightful owner of the firearm MUST be the one to fill out the form, in their own handwriting. If you need assistance, please let us know and we will be happy to help. We will verify the form has been filled out correctly and then submit a background check on-line. Once the background check has been approved and the 5 day wait has been satisfied (or waived), payment for the transfer is made, the consumer may leave the store with the firearm.
IMPORTANT things you need to know:
You must be a Florida resident to pick up handguns and receivers. Non-residents can purchase/transfer rifles and shotguns.
The actual named purchaser of the firearm MUST pick up the gun, no substitutions.
The address on your ID MUST be current. If it's not, you must provide state issued documentation of your current address (e.g. tax bill, voter registration, car registration). Commercial mail is not acceptable.
Don't worry about filling out the ATF form 4473 before you arrive at the store. It MUST be done at the store.
If you've had issues related to mistaken identity or identity theft, your background check may be delayed by up to 72 hours (weekdays). The delay starts after the background check is complete.
Cash is preferred but we also accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and AMEX.
There is no firearm registry in Florida. Florida Statute 790.335 (Prohibition of registration of firearms; electronic records) specifically identifies firearms registration as illegal and a violation of your constitutional 2nd Amendment rights (under most circumstances).
Things that cause delays in picking up guns:
Expired ID or ID doesn't match current address. Bring government issued proof of address (see below)
Problems with background check.
No proof of payment. The seller may provide a DATED and PAID receipt. If this evidence is not obtainable, the 5-day wait will start when evidence of payment made at R&R Sports.
EVERYONE picking up gun(s) locally gets a background check; NO EXCEPTIONS.
A Florida Concealed Weapons License waives the 5 day wait but does NOT eliminate the background check.
A background check is $5 – this is the fee FDLE (Florida Department of Law Enforcement) charges for submitting the check to NICS (National Instant Criminal Background Check System), operated by the FBI.
A background check is good for 1 transaction or 30 days, whichever occurs first. A transaction is 1 business day.
We do background checks on-line. In the event that the internet is down, we can perform background checks over the phone.
A background check usually takes a few minutes. However, the number of background checks submitted to FDLE at any point in time may affect how quickly a result is returned. If the FDLE system or the NICS system is down, background checks will not go through until NICS and/or FDLE have been restored. A delay such as this can last a few hours but usually not more than a day. The background check and 5-day wait are NOT related.
A firearm cannot be released by us until the background check is approved by FDLE.
