This allows firearm dealers to submit all required forms and information to us electronically. For more information, see Firearms Online.

Important notice to firearms dealers

We continually solicit firearms dealers’ assistance to ensure the Application to Transfer Pistol forms are completed thoroughly, accurately, and legibly so they can be entered accurately into the Firearms Database. It is equally important for the firearms dealer to forward the completed forms to the appropriate law enforcement agency and our Firearms Section within the time specified by law.

In an effort to ensure all licensees have the information they need to properly complete and submit the forms required to meet state and federal standards, we will be reviewing training opportunities for dealers and will continue to provide technical assistance through clarification of procedures. We are continually looking for opportunities to modernize this process through alternative approaches. Some of those being considered are: electronic transfers, a software program for dealers, and Internet downloads of documents.

We welcome your comments regarding these issues to more effectively deliver this service and meet your business needs.
