Step 1) Select a firearm from our expansive selection of handguns, rifles and shotguns. Then use our "Can we ship this to you?" tool (below the "Add to Cart" button) to determine if we can ship that item to your zip code according to local and state laws.
Add the firearm to your shopping cart, and then click checkout. Login to your Cheaper Than Dirt! Account for quick checkout or you may checkout as a guest (you’ ll have the option to create an account after checkout to save time on your next order).
Enter your billing address and click the green continue button.
Step 2) Click the green "Choose FFL Dealer" button to pick where you would like the firearm shipped.
If the FFL dealer you would like to use is not listed, click the gray "Bypass" button and email us the dealer’s Federal Firearms License with your order number as the subject to email@example.com.
Once you have selected a FFL dealer or chosen to email us your preferred dealer, press the green continue button, enter payment information and submit your firearm order.
Step 3) Cheaper Than Dirt! will ship the firearm to the chosen FFL dealer. Once your gun arrives at the FFL dealer's address they will call you to notify you of its arrival.
The FFL dealer will charge a nominal fee at the time of the transfer. The actual amount is up to the individual dealer, but this fee typically ranges from $15 to $60.
When you arrive at the FFL dealer, please inspect the firearm and ensure the model is correct before proceeding further. If there are any issues please call our Gun Sales department immediately.
Step 4) Complete requirements for firearm transfer and take your new handgun, rifle or shotgun home!
The FFL dealer will ask you to fill out the federal, local and state required paperwork associated with your firearm as well as complete a background check. If you have any questions about the paperwork, background check or any other elements of the actual transfer, we recommend you contact the transferring FFL dealer with those questions.
It is important to inspect your firearm thoroughly before completion of the transfer. Once the firearm is transferred into your name, Cheaper Than Dirt! will not accept a return or exchange under any circumstance. If a defect is discovered after completing the transfer, you must contact the manufacturer directly for repair or replacement.
