Process of transferring a firearm: After you complete your transaction online, there is nothing additional that needs to be done on your end. You do not need to call us and let us know your item(s) is coming unless something went wrong or you have a special circumstance for pick-up that we need to be aware of.

if we are not on file with the dealer, please have dealer contact us, FFL@chandlertactical.com. We do not accept transfers from individuals/non-licenses.

The online store or other dealer you purchased from will ship your firearm along with your contact information to us. Billing/Contact info must match ID or Transfer will not occur. You will be responsible for Getting a RMA or shipping label to send it back.

Once it gets delivered to the shop, we’ll unpack it, process it and call you to notify you that it is ready for transfer. Please note that the physical delivery of your firearm does NOT mean that it is ready for transfer. Your firearm is only ready for transfer after we contact you and notify you that it is ready.

After we contact you, come pick up your firearm as soon as possible. Please bring your photo ID and proof of Arizona residency. For most, a Arizona Driver’s License satisfies both.

If you do not have a Arizona Driver’s License, you’ll need to bring:

  • Photo ID like a State issued ID from another state (no further ID required if information is current) or a US Passport (government proof of address required).
  • Proof of Arizona Residency. Examples include Arizona Vehicle Registration, Arizona Voter Registration or a Arizona Tax Bill. Utility bills, junk mail, phone bills and personal letters are NOT acceptable as proof of residency. If you need more examples of proof of residency, feel free to call and ask.

When you come to pick up your firearm, we will provide you with a form 4473 (Firearms Transaction Record) to fill out. The rightful owner of the firearm MUST be the one to fill out the form in person in our shop. This paperwork cannot be done ahead of time.

We will verify the form has been filled out correctly and then submit a background check on- line. Once the background check has been approved or the Brady wait has been satisfied (or waived with a Arizona Concealed Weapon Permit), payment for the transfer will be made.

Storage Fee/Abandon Property:

  • Once notified that the firearm is completed or has been received in the store you, the customer, have 30 days to pick up the product.
  • AFTER 30 days you, the customer, will be assessed a $12/day storage fee until the firearm is picked up or the value of the firearm or cost of labor has been collected.
  • Once storage fees exceed the cost of labor and/or value of the firearm, the firearm will be considered abandoned and will be put on the floor for resale.
  • It Is YOUR responsibility to be a responsible firearms owner. Therefore, multiple attempts will not be made for pick up. This includes any and/all receivers, any and/all completed rifles, pistols.
  • This is in effect and enforced dated March 2024 to present date. No excuses.
