Firearm Transfer Services

Most interstate firearm transactions must be conducted through a dealer who holds a Federal Firearms License (FFL). It is illegal, in almost all instances, for someone who is not a licensed dealer to ship a firearm to another party who is not a licensed dealer.

CGI Guns & Training can arrange for the transfer of firearms to or from other dealers anywhere within the United States.

Here are some of the types of transfers that usually have to be performed through a FFL:

  • You purchase a firearm through an auction house or internet dealer. Even if the dealer is in Virginia, they cannot ship directly to you. You must pick it up in person, or have it transferred through a licensed dealer.


  • You are on vacation out of state, and see a handgun you have always wanted. You can purchase it from the out of state dealer, but you must have the dealer ship the handgun to an FFL in your home state to complete the transfer.


  • You want to sell or give your handgun to someone who does not have an FFL and they live in another state.


  • You inherit a firearm, particularly a handgun, from an out of state relative.


Transfer Fees


  • CGI Guns & Training charges a flat transfer fee of $33 per firearm.

All Transactions also incur the following charges where applicable:
  • $2 NICS (Vcheck) fee ($5 for non-Virginia residents). This fee only applies when you are the recipient of the firearm. It is required by Virginia and is forwarded to the Commonwealth. We do not keep this fee.
  • Any and all shipping costs incurred by CGI Guns. When CGI Guns is receiving the firearm for a customer, these fees are usually paid directly by the customer to the shipping dealer. When CGI Guns is shipping the firearm for a customer, the customer pays the shipping fees to CGI Guns.
  •  Any and all fees the other dealer may charge CGI Guns for processing or verifying their FFL. This is highly unusual, but sometimes it happens.
