FFL Transfers

Firearm Purchases Through Other Dealers (to be transferred through Naples Gun Shop)

Contact us using the contact form below or HERE.  If you didn't purchase your new firearm through us, the dealer you bought it from will need a copy of our FFL to ship your new gun so we may transfer it to you.  We are willing to receive a firearm from a non-FFL; they must include in the shipping box a copy of their current Drivers License showing their current residential address.  Due to the ever-frequent missing information and poor packaging, there will be a $10 upcharge for all firearms received from non-FFL holders (i.e. private sellers). Shipments from a dealer have to ship with a copy of the seller's FFL in the box.

Although you may call us, we do prefer email communication. To expedite service, please include your name and phone number on your email message, regardless if we have sold to you or conducted transfers for you previously. Please note that your firearm(s) will be available for pickup only after you have been contacted by us. UPS/FedEx/USPS delivery notification does not mean that the item is ready for pickup. All transfers will be processed in the order in which they were received. This may take up 1-2 business days, but normally you will be contacted on the same day your purchase arrives.  We will call or email you to notify you your item is available for pickup.  We are normally available for firearm transfers M-F 9am - 5:30pm. Thanks for help making your transfer quick and easy!

We can also ship your handgun/rifle/shotgun to another FFL/Dealer.  We verify all Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder prior to shipping.

  1. If you've purchased a firearm from someone other than Naples Gun Shop, there is a very high chance that retailer already has our license on file. If purchased via GunBroker, the seller can get our license directly from GunBroker. If your seller does not have our license, have them call our store.

  2. The ONLY phone number we have is 239-300-0891. This is printed on our FFL copy. We welcome folks to call 239-300-0891 and confirm our information.

  3. BOTH our mailing and physical address is 327 AIRPORT PULLING RD N., NAPLES, FL 34104. This is the ONLY address we accept/ship firearms from AND the ONLY address we use for sending/receiving US Mail, FedEx, USPS and UPS. This is the same address printed on our Federal Firearms License. Anyone may verify a valid FFL by visiting the ATF's EZ FFL Check system HERE.

  4. We DO NOT USE A PAYPAL ACCOUNT, and do not accept Money Orders for sales. We are a legitimate business with a merchant credit card processor. All credit card transactions are immediately emailed a receipt containing our information.

  5. There will be an up-charge assessed at time of pickup should we have had to chase down your seller to obtain documentation of WHAT (make, model, S/N) was shipped to us and to WHOM it is to be transferred. PLEASE instruct your seller to include this info as well as their FFL license. This is required by law.

  6. To help prevent FFL fraud, we RECORD all IP address that visit our website. Any instance of FFL fraud detected will result in our forwarding all information to the ATF.
