Effective 12/18/2017: In an effort to better serve our customers and provide them with the best shopping experience possible, we are no longer selling firearms to other resellers or FFL's!


We are pleased to offer you the best price for both private party transfers, as well as incoming dealer-to-dealer transfers! Since we have the best price, we receive a particularly high volume of firearms transferred in from other dealers. Dozens of transfers may come in at once in addition to our daily receiving for our own retail store inventory.


In order for us to continue offering this service at the lowest possible rate, we ask that you observe the following guidelines:

  • We only accept firearms from licensed dealers with a valid FFL.

    If you are doing a private party transfer, your seller will need to come into the shop with you to complete the transfer. If your seller is out of state or cannot come in with you, then they must ship the firearm to Trop through a licensed dealer. We do not accept direct shipments from private individuals.

    Any firearms sent to Trop Gun Shop from a private individual will be refused, or sent back to the closest licensed FFL to the shipper. Your shipper will then be responsible for making the arrangements through that dealer to get their firearm back and/or shipped to Trop correctly.
    No Exceptions!
  • Please contact Customer Service to arrange a transfer.

    We will ask you for the name and contact information of the dealer who is shipping the firearm to us as well as the make and model of the firearm. The more information you provide us up front when you make the arrangements, the smoother the process will go from start to finish.
  • You will be contacted when your firearm is ready for pickup.

    We understand that you are excited to receive your purchase and are eagerly watching the tracking information for delivery. Delivery confirmation does not mean the firearm is ready for immediate pick-up. We do need time to receive it in and process incoming transfers. Typically this occurs within 2 business days; however, it can take longer during high volume times. We will call you when your firearm is ready, so we ask that you please be patient and allow the process to work. Calling in for repeated status updates does not lead to faster service. All transfers are processed as fast as possible given current volume.
  • Please allow yourself ample time for pick-ups.

    When coming in to pick-up your transfer, you will need to sign-in at our gun counter to initiate paperwork and undergo the background check. Depending on when you arrive, you may experience wait times based on the volume of customers in the store. Our busiest times are typically Friday evenings and weekends. Please plan accordingly.
