How to Buy a Firearm

By completing a transaction with Robertson Trading Post, you are stating that you will be the actual buyer / owner of this firearm. It is a felony to purchase a firearm for someone who is not eligible to own one. Read here.

We need two things in order to ship a firearm.

1. We need a dealer to ship to.

We are required by Federal law to ship to a licensed dealer. That can be a gun shop, pawn shop or gunsmith. They will need to provide us with a copy of their Federal Firearms License or FFL.

FFLs can be sent by fax or email.

Please ask your dealer to reference your name somehow when they send this. Your name is vital to us shipping your order in a timely manner.

If you are unsure who in your area can handle this for you, please check with us. We have shipped to hundreds of dealers across the US and may already have someone close by that can handle the transfer for you.


2. Paying for your item.

Your can checkout through this site or we can accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover over the phone. Shoppers that would rather pay by check or money can mail their payment to the PO Box address listed on our contact page.

Please note that we do not accept American Express or PayPal as payment.

We do not charge sales tax on orders shipped outside the state of TN.

Once we have your payment and a copy of your dealers FFL, we ship the item to your dealer. We include everything your dealer requires to legally receive the firearm and contact you when it arrives. When you go to pick it up, this is where you fill out the Federal form 4473 and have a background check run.


CA, NV and WA state buyers.

We are required to send your dealer a priced invoice so they may collect state sales tax on your purchase.
