Frequently Asked Questions

How do I buy an advertised firearm ?
All firearms must be transferred from a dealer to a dealer. After purchasing a firearm, arrangements can be made with the seller for his dealer to send the firearm to your dealer of choice. As soon as you have your relevant Permit To Acquire, the firearm may then be collected from your dealer. If you have any questions contact your State Firearms Registry (Scroll down to see Firearms Registries List).

Who Pays for the freight and Transferring of Firearms?
Payment of freight must be negotiated between the seller and the buyer unless the buyer has already stated in his listing that the price of the item includes freight. Transferring costs are negotiated between the seller and the buyer, it is a common practise for each party to pay their own transferring costs.
