  • All inbound FFL transfers to Texas Security Equipment are expected to be picked up within 30 days, unless express arrangements are made in writing via e-mail.

General Information

Definitions:

  • FFL (Federal Firearms License) provides legal authorization for a dealer to engage in the intrastate & interstate sale of modern firearms.

  • NICS (National Instant Criminal Background Check System) - regulatory division of the FBI that verifies legal eligibility for firearms purchases.

  • “Straw” Purchases - an illegal firearm purchase where the actual buyer of the gun, being unable to pass the required federal background check or desiring not to have their name associated with the transaction, uses a proxy buyer who can pass the required background check to purchase the firearm for them. It is highly illegal and punishable by a $250,000 fine and 10 years in prison.

FFL Transfers Allow a Firearm to be legally bought or sold over the internet

  • While there are exceptions to the Gun Control Act of 1968, the person taking possession of the firearm is required to pass an FBI NICS background check.

  • In addition, some jurisdictions may have additional processing requirements such as state or local criminal history /substance abuse /psychiatric background checks. Others actually have mandatory firearms registration & licensing.  

Requirements in Texas

  • Once the FBI NICS background check has been approved and you have paid for your transaction, you are clear to take the firearm.

  • The NICS background check is not the same as registration.

  • The FBI NICS background check simply confirms that you are a legal purchaser.

  • In addition, a Texas CHL will bypass the NICS requirement, though the purchaser must still complete an ATF form 4473 to take the firearm.

FFL Transfer Regulations in Texas (firearms transferred over-the-counter)

  • Texas Security Equipment may ONLY transfer guns over-the-counter to eligible purchasers.

  • “Eligible” purchasers are those individuals that successfully pass the NICS background check, or have a valid Texas License to Carry (LTC).

  • Handguns may only be transferred over-the-counter to a Texas resident.

  • Rifles or shotguns may be sold or transferred over-the-counter to an out-of-state resident, provided there are no restrictions against it.

  • We may not mail firearms transactions to a home or business that is not an FFL.

  • By federal law, all FFL transfers must take place in person.

Straw Man Purchases are illegal and will be refused by Texas Security Equipment

  • Specifically, the purchaser (named on the invoice) must be the person legally taking possession of the firearm– and no one else.
