Sign up for Firearms Online
Visit Secure Access Washington (SAW) to request access to Firearms Online. Firearm dealers and their employees must both register. We can’t provide access until we receive permission from the person you've designated as your "security contact." If you have personnel changes, you should notify us to change the SAW account.
How it works
You can enter and save pistol transfer applications on our secure website. You can hold applications in pending status while law enforcement runs the background checks. When the background check is approved or denied, you may update the record and submit the pistol transfer.
