One of the most frequently asked questions we get is “Can I use Gun Transfer where I live?”  For the vast majority of gun owners, the answer is yes.  There are restrictions based on each State’s gun laws so it’s important to know what those restrictions are.

Gun Transfer’s two products (Basic Gun Transfer, Full Gun Transfer) are for private party firearm transfer in the same state.  Both the gun buyer and seller must reside in the same state to obey Federal Gun Laws.  In the future, we plan to offer a product that will allow transfers between buyers and sellers residing in different states but for now, they must be from the same state.

Currently, Gun Transfer can be used in 42 states.  Most of those states do not restrict the type of gun you can sell.  Below is a list of what’s allowed or not allowed in each state.  If you decide to transfer using our services, be sure to check the detailed restrictions for your area.  Many states have unique age, licenses, or documentation requirements.  You can find your state’s requirements when using Gun Transfer by clicking here.
