How to purchase gun

4 Easy Steps to Purchasing a Firearm

Step 1:

Select a firearm from our expansive selection of handguns, rifles and shotguns. 

Add the firearm to your shopping cart, and then click checkout. Login to your Patriot Firearms and Gear Account for quick checkout or you may checkout as a guest.

Enter your billing address and click the green continue button.

Step 2: 

Locate a current and valid FFL holder to pick up your selected firearm. 

Once you have selected a FFL dealer or chosen to email us your preferred dealer, press the continue button, enter payment information and submit your firearm order.

Step 3:

Patriot Firearms and Gear 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 Patriot Firearms and Gear immediately.

Step 4: 

Complete requirements for firearm transfer and take your new handgun, rifle or shotgun home!



  1. Can a gun be sent to my house?

    •  No, all firearms must be sent to a FFL (federal firearms license) dealer.

  2. Do I need to have a background check?

    • Yes, all firearms purchases require a federally mandated background check to be completed by the FFL dealer at the time the firearm is picked up.

  3. Can I have the background check done before buying a gun? 

    • No, the background check must be completed at the time the firearm is transferred from the FFL dealer to you.

  4. Do I need to have a license?

    • Most states do not have a licensing requirement, but some local or state laws require a gun license. Patriot Firearms and Gear recommends you check with your local FFL dealer or refer to the NRA-ILA to check your state’s gun laws.

  5. Do I need to have a concealed carry permit?

    • No, you do not need a carry permit to buy a gun online.

  6. Is it legal to buy a gun online?

    • Yes, It is entirely legal to purchase a firearm online, but the firearm must be shipped to a licensed FFL dealer.

  7. Why does the firearm need to be shipped to a FFL?

    • The Gun Control Act of 1968 outlined new rules for selling and transferring firearms. As a result, it is now federal law to have all firearms shipped to a FFL dealer so the person the firearm is being transferred to can fill out the proper paperwork and complete the required background check.
