Gun Transfers

R&L Archery provides transfers for internet sales, as well as shipping and transfers for in-state and out-of-state personal sales. With knowledge of the gun laws, we are able to help you secure your registrations, titles, and transfers the right way.

Need a gun transferred into the state? We do that, too. We can fax or e-mail our license to the dealer shipping the firearm, or you can download it here: R&L Archery’s FFL.

Vermont’s gun laws (revised in 2018) require a federal background check be performed (completion of Form 4473 at an FFL-licensed premise) for private firearm transfers between individuals other than immediate family. (“Immediate family member” means a spouse, parent, stepparent, child, stepchild, sibling, stepsibling, grandparent, stepgrandparent, grandchild, stepgrandchild, great grandparent, step-great grandparent, great grandchild, and step-great grandchild).

R&L Archery can help you through the firearm transfer process.
