Firearm Transfers

 If you’ve purchased a firearm online, or would like a NICS check for your private sale, we are happy to facilitate. We perform background checks Monday through Friday exclusively at our Merrillville location. Whether it is a handgun or a rifle, all NICS checks and FFL transfers are just $25.00 per firearm, and every fifth transfer with us is free! If you’d like to have your purchase shipped to us, or have any questions, email us at


If you ordered through, simply select us as your FFL and a copy of our license will be sent automatically. If you’ve ordered from any other website, contact us Monday through Friday and we’ll help get the ball rolling. 


  • All FFL transfers and NICS checks are just $25.00 per firearm. Every fifth transfer is FREE!  
  • Please keep in mind we can only transfer to Indiana state residents with a valid government issued photo ID.  
  • Our Firearms department is open Monday through Friday, from 10am until 5pm exclusively at our Merrillville location.  
  • The required NICS check can take a matter of a few minutes, or it could take longer depending on a number of factors that we are not in control of. Make sure when you visit you plan accordingly.  
  • Keep an eye on the tracking number your seller provides. If the seller provides us with proper contact information we’ll get in touch when your shipment arrives, but the best bet for you is to keep an eye on your shipment.


If you have any questions we can help with, please feel free to give us a call.
