Firearm Transfer Form
Bob’s is happy to receive or ship transfers for our customers. Our charge is $30.00 for each firearm shipped in or out, plus actual freight and insurance for firearms shipped by us. We must have a valid Federal Firearms License in hand to accept firearms from you for shipment to other dealers, or a copy of a current photo I.D. card from an individual* shipping to us. Use of the downloadable form on this page will expedite our service to you.
For those people picking up firearms at Bob’s, please bring identification appropriate for conducting a background check, since this is a necessary part of the transfer procedure. (Resident or non-resident - Photo I.D. more than 30 days old issued by your state of residence, together with a document that has the same name and address as the photo I.D. such as a bank check, vehicle registration, utility bill or copy of a lease, hunting or fishing license, passport, etc.) Military stationed in Virginia - Copy of orders showing that Virginia is your permanent duty station and military I.D. card.
Please Note: It is the responsibility of the firearm(s) shipper to insure the firearm(s) for full value. Bob’s accepts no responsibility for shipments to us that are not insured or are under-insured.
*Federal regulations require that we know the identity of anyone shipping a firearm to us. It is absolutely necessary for an individual shipping a firearm to us for transfer to provide a legible copy of his drivers’ license or state-issued identification card with the firearm(s). Those who do not provide this information will have the firearm(s) returned, C.O.D. for freight and handling charges.
