Maryland Gun Transfers FFL
Transfers with AM Shooting are easy. We accept transfers of regulated firearms from other gun shops, businesses and individuals holding a valid FFL.  We also process private transfers of regulated firearms between Maryland residents.

Here are the terms of the transfers:
We will transfer any Maryland legal new or used firearms if we do not have it in stock and cannot get it at the mutually agreeable price.  All firearms must be Maryland compliant.  Maryland compliant handguns must be listed on the Maryland Handgun Roster (or be manufactured prior to 1985). A current Maryland Handgun Roster is located here. If you do not know if a gun is Maryland legal, we highly recommend you contact Maryland State Police.
If the firearm is manufactured after 2002 it must be equipped with a Maryland approved “Integrated Mechanical Safety Device”.
To receive the regulated firearm, you have to have a valid HQL. We charge $30 for the long gun and $40 for regulated firearm

FFL Transfer Request Process:
Whoever you buy your gun from, they are going to need a copy of our FFL in order to ship the gun to us.  Please call us to arrange the transfer.
After we accept your transfer request and we e-mail the seller a copy of our FFL license, they will ship the gun to us for you to pick up.  It is your responsibility to make sure the seller ships out your gun in a timely fashion once they have our FFL license. Be sure to have them include a copy of their FFL, your name and phone number


Gun Pickup Process:
After your gun has been received and processed into our system, we will call you to let you know that the gun is ready for paperwork (Maryland regulated firearm – hand gun) or paperwork and pick up (long guns).
For long gun transfers, you will need a valid Maryland photo ID (drivers license) and will need to fill out a Federal Form 4473 for the background check.  Once your background check is approved, you can take your gun.
For Maryland regulated transfers (hand guns) you will need a valid  Maryland photo ID (driver’s license) and a Maryland HQL license. You will also need to log into the Maryland State Police Licensing Portal and fill out the on-line version of form 77R.
Once all your federal and state background checks are approved we will contact you to come back into our store and pay your transfer fee and take your gun.

TRANSFERS WILL BE HELD FOR 45 DAYS UNLESS A LONGER TIME IS APPROVED BY AM SHOOTING.   ANY GUN LEFT AFTER 45 DAYS WITHOUT CONTACT BY YOU (THE BUYER) WILL BECOME THE PROPERTY OF AM SHOOTING.

Outbound Transfers:
If you would like to transfer a Maryland legal gun through our shop to another FFL holder, we charge $40 per gun.

We look forward to being your FIRST CHOICE when it comes to your gun transfer needs.
