FFL Transfers
This is one of the things we do best

We make the FFL Transfer process easy and we wanted to clarify a few things for customers on how a FFL transfer works so that you can understand the time frame and steps involved. Our FFL transfer fee is $20 per firearm and we will make sure that your firearms gets into your hand safely and in a timely fashion.


As stated above, all firearms are $20 each, but from time to time, some customers don’t arrive in a timely fashion. Effective January 1st, 2020, All transfers must be picked up within 4 weeks of arrival. Any transfer picked up after 4 weeks of arrival will be subject to an additional storage fee of $10.00 per week. Firearms not picked up after 90 days will be considered abandoned and sold. Exceptions to this policy may only be granted by the Owner/General Manager. Exceptions will generally only be granted to Military personnel who are currently serving and on deployment, and must be granted before ordering the firearm and having it sent to us. Additionally, if you have more than one firearm shipped to the store, all firearms must be picked up at the same time. If a firearm is left at the store, then the $10.00 per week fee will start immediately if the additional gun(s) are not picked up.

The Process & Timing

The buyer finds a gun online and purchases it with their credit card or form of payment they used.Seller will request the designated FFL to ship the firearm to and the buyer would indicate Briarhawk as the recipient. If we appear in the seller’s database, you should be able to select us, if not, provide them the following information and the The Seller will typically email requesting our Federal Firearms License (FFL)

Seller emails Briarhawk for a copy of our FFL and Briarhawk sends a response back with an electronic (emailed copy) of our FFL to the seller. The FFL is never sent to the buyer (customer) Upon proper verification by the seller of Briarhawk’s FFL, the seller will ship the firearm(s) to Briarhawk’s retail location along with a copy of the sales invoice (Nevada Sales Tax must be paid either online or during pickup ) Firearm(s) are then received by Briarhawk and logged into our Acquisition and Disposition (A&D) book so that the chain of custody for the firearm(s) are properly recorded. After the firearm(s) are logged into our A&D book, we will call/text the buyer (generally same day) and let you know it is ready for pickup. We kindly ask to refrain from calling the store as we will call you once it is properly recorded on our books. The buyer (customer/you) comes to the store to pickup your firearm(s) from us. You will need to bring a valid form of government issued identification, form of payment for transfer fee and Nevada Sales Tax (if not paid already) and State of Nevada Background Check Fee of $25 (If you are not a current NV CCW permit holder) and fill out a 4473 form for the completion of the transaction.

FFL Transfer f.a.q.

Should I order this gun from an internet site? Other things to think about before purchasing your firearm online.
Is it really cheaper than buying from Briarhawk?

Some people think it is cheaper, but when you realize that you still need to pay tax, the transfer fee, shipping and waiting, it could cost you more in the long run.

Is the site you are visiting reputable?

Anyone can create a website/online store in a very short time, how do you know they really do have guns at such a “cheap” price.

Has their website been hacked?

Customer data is the most important commodity on the internet these days, don’t let your data be someone else’s currency.

Is my credit card information safe floating around on other websites?

A random charge here and there pops up on your credit card, where did it come from? Could have been that “good deal” buying that gun online.
