PURCHASING FIREARMS ONLINE
It is illegal to ship firearms to anyone not holding an active Federal Firearms License (FFL). For that reason, firearms purchased online may be picked up at RFT (Reliant Firearms and Transfers, LLC) or shipped to an FFL (gun store) near you. We will contact and verify the FFL you select during checkout before we ship your firearm(s). The buyer is strongly encouraged to contact the receiving FFL licensee before purchase.
Orders purchased online (e.g., from another FFL, Gunbroker auctions, etc.) and sent to RFT for transfer can ONLY be picked up by/transferred to the person who bought the firearm or won the auction. RFT will only transfer firearms to the person listed on the sales invoice. If you want to purchase a firearm as a gift, the best way to do that is to buy a gift card or certificate from the seller, gift it to the intended recipient and let him/her purchase the firearm. You can also purchase the firearm, have it transferred to you and THEN you may gift it to someone else, following all applicable federal and state laws of course. Never take money from someone else to buy “them” a firearm! That is a “straw purchase” and you’ll end up in federal prison for that.
