*J & B Outdoors is not responsible for returns/refunds or return shipping in any case where the firearm cannot be transferred or the customer does not wish to accept the firearm for any reason. The buyer/transferee must take this up with the person/party/entity where the firearm purchase originated.
Facilitating the transfer of ownership/registration of a firearm in a private party transaction is purely voluntary under federal law although there are many reasons to use our Private Party Transfer Services at J & B Outdoors!
First and foremost you as a seller probably do not have the ability to conduct complete background checks on potential buyers. This leaves you as a private seller with no way to confirm whether or not the person you are selling or transferring the firearm to is prohibited from possessing it.
In fact, you may not even be aware of all the circumstances that prohibit someone from possessing a firearm due to municipal, state, or federal regulations. This can put you in a situation where you may be violating the law yourself.
When individuals decide to use J & B Outdoors to facilitate the private sale/transfer of their firearms, it can enhance public safety, assist law enforcement, and help ensure firearms end up only in the hands of those who are legally allowed to possess them.
As the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) states;
"When a private transaction is completed through a licensed dealer, both the customers and the community have some assurance that the individual wishing to purchase the firearm is not prohibited by law from possessing or receiving a firearm. When a private seller goes through an FFL to transfer his or her firearm, it can also improve the ability of law enforcement to trace that firearm if it is later recovered during a criminal investigation."
If you are wanting to transfer a firearm to another individual, the firearm must be brought in to our store (please ensure the firearm is unloaded and in a safe condition). We will need a government issued photo identification with valid address such as a driver's license, passport, etc.. We will log the firearm into our ATF Firearms Book.
The firearm can then be transferred to another individual. The person MUST BE at least 18 years old to receive long gun(s) and 21 years of age for handgun(s).
We can facilitate transfers of handguns to Missouri residents only. If the transferee is from out of state we cannot transfer any handgun or any firearms classified as a pistol or handgun due to Federal Regulations.
Transferee will present their valid government issued photo identification which shows current address; Driver’s License, Military Transit Papers, Passport, etc.. Presented ID must be legible and unaltered, must not be expired and must contain current address.
Transferee will be asked to review, complete, sign, and date and ATF Form 4473.
J & B Outdoors will review the submitted ATF Form 4473 and if it meets federal, state, and local requirements, we will conduct an FBI NICS Federal Background Check. Once processed they will issue a status. The following responses are possible:
We reserve the right to terminate any transaction. We also closely observe all municipal, city, state and federal laws and regulatory restrictions.
The fee for this service is the same as other tranfers - $35.00
