You’re not taking it home with you and it’s not being shipped to your door.
That’s right. Firearms have to be transferred face-to-face, by a FFL (Federal Firearms License) holder—a licensee. Your firearm will be sent to a licensee of your choosing for transfer to you. If you’ve never purchased a firearm before, this may sound strange, but legally, a firearm must be transferred directly from a licensee to the buyer after a form 4473 is properly filled out, signed and passing a background check (the background check is waived in most states if the buyer has a carry or gun permit).
The licensee you designate (we’ll get to that) and FMM (Full Metal Mayhem) will exchange credentials and once everything is verified, your firearm gets shipped (after full payment is received). Once the firearm arrives at your designated licensee, it is processed and you will be notified. The paperwork (form 4473) will be filled out and signed at that location and the background check performed if required. Then you take your firearm home (or better yet, to the range).
