A common misconception about buying a gun online is the "online loophole”. THIS IS FALSE! Because all firearms must be shipped to an FFL dealer first for processing, they CAN NOT be shipped directly to you the customer.
Choose your very own firearm from our wide selection. We carry a variety of rifles, pistols, shotguns, and more. Keep in mind firearms and 100% lower receivers must ship to an FFL. Your local FFL will handle the transfer to your possession.
Find a local/ affordable FFL dealer you would like to use and get a copy of their FFL License. Contact the FFL and make sure they will receive the firearm(s) for you and are not closed for business or are otherwise not receiving transfers. Do not assume a dealer / FFL will receive a firearm for you, contact them first.
All firearms must be shipped to an FFL dealer first for processing, they cannot be shipped directly to you the customer. After placing your order, please email us a copy of your FFL’s license & Order # to: FFL@RightToBear.com. Email only, we do not accept fax.
Please allow additional lead time for FFL items to ship. Go to your chosen FFL and wrap up any paperwork that may be remaining. From there you can take your gun home and enjoy it!
You must be 21 or older to purchase an FFL Item/ Firearm.
RightToBear.com will not be responsible for packages returned to us that are refused delivery, and you will be liable for additional shipping charges to re-ship your order. Never ship us an FFL item. IF we authorize a return, the item can only be shipped to us from another FFL.
A 15% restocking fee will be charged for FFL items that need to be shipped back to us due to an ATF Form 4473 denial. In other words, if you fail your background check and want your FFL to ship the item back to us, then we refund your order, less the original shipping charge and less a 15% restocking fee.

- Why does the firearm need to be shipped to a FFL? The Gun Control Act of 1968 outlined new rules for selling and transferring firearms.
