  1. Please have the transferring FFL dealer send an email to and include the following information:

        o  Your contact information including your name, email address, and phone number (We will need this to get               in touch with you when your firearm is ready to be transferred to you)

        o   Please include in the email any corresponding transaction #, or invoice # if applicable. 

        o  Information about the firearm being transferred including; make, model and serial number

        o  A copy of the selling dealer’s Federal Firearms License.

    2. We will promptly respond and provide the required information and a copy of our Federal Firearms License. 

    3. We recommend you to get a tracking number for your firearm from the shipping dealer. Independence                    takes no responsibility for tracking shipments

    4. Once Independence Indoor shooting has received your firearm, it will take 1-3 business days to enter the                firearm into our system and have it ready for transfer to you. We will contact you when the firearm is ready to            be picked up.

    5. When you arrive to pick up your firearm, you will be required to complete an ATF form 4473 and we will                   conduct the background check. You will need to provide state issued identification with your current address. 

    6. Independence Indoor Shooting charges a transfer fee for conducting the transfer:

            o  $50 per firearm for non-members.  

            o  $100 per NFA Item for non-members.  (This is typically a year long process with additional paperwork                        long term storage, but includes access to use on the range) 

            o  Free for members. 

    7. Upon successful completion of the background check and payment of transfer fees, the firearm will be                      transferred to you.

    8. Firearms and/or items transferred to Independence that have not been picked up by the customer after                  nine(9) months will be considered abandoned. Independence will claim ownership of those items.
