We are all here because we love guns; guns for hunting, guns for shooting sports, or guns just for collecting. There are, however, certain laws which we all must abide by when it comes to transferring ownership of those firearms. Whether you’re accepting delivery of a firearm from a manufacturer or transferring ownership from another owner, we offer Pinellas County’s easiest and most convenient Federal Firearms License (FFL) transfer service.
FFL TRANSFER SERVICES
For only $45 we handle all inbound and outbound FFL gun transfers in a fast and professional manner.
When transferring a firearm to Cracker Boys Outdoors please include with the firearm a copy of your FFL if you’re a dealer or your Driver’s License if you are an individual.
The bill of sale should include the customer’s information, including name and phone number, along with gun information like make, model, serial number, and date of purchase.
There are two main requirements and responsibilities to recognize when transferring ownership of a firearm.
1. Age Requirements
The transfer of a firearm from one person to another is meant to only take place between legal adults. A minor in Florida is anyone under the age of 18, and a minor cannot receive a gun as a gift unless the minor's legal guardians both agree to it. Because of these rules, it is legal for a father to transfer a gun to his son as a gift if the mother is also okay with it, but it is illegal for a family friend to do so without both parents' permission.
2. Transfer Responsibilities
A. Upon the retail commercial sale or retail transfer of any firearm, the seller or transferor shall deliver a written warning to the purchaser or transferee, which warning states, in block letters not less than 1/4 inch in height:
i. “IT IS UNLAWFUL, AND PUNISHABLE BY IMPRISONMENT AND FINE, FOR ANY ADULT TO STORE OR LEAVE A FIREARM IN ANY PLACE WITHIN THE REACH OR EASY ACCESS OF A MINOR UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE OR TO KNOWINGLY SELL OR OTHERWISE TRANSFER OWNERSHIP OR POSSESSION OF A FIREARM TO A MINOR OR A PERSON OF UNSOUND MIND.”
B. Any retail or wholesale store, shop, or sales outlet which sells firearms must conspicuously post at each purchase counter the following warning in block letters not less than 1 inch in height:
i. “IT IS UNLAWFUL TO STORE OR LEAVE A FIREARM IN ANY PLACE WITHIN THE REACH OR EASY ACCESS OF A MINOR UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE OR TO KNOWINGLY SELL OR OTHERWISE TRANSFER OWNERSHIP OR POSSESSION OF A FIREARM TO A MINOR OR A PERSON OF UNSOUND MIND.”
C. Any person or business knowingly violating a requirement to provide warning under this section commits a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.
