Transfer Firearms to & from TSC Firearms
How does a person transfer a firearm from Out of State, or private transfers and what are the fees?
TSC Firearms provides Out of State firearm transfers and private transfers as a service to our customers. We ask that you contact TSC Firearms BEFORE the purchase to verify we do not have the firearm in stock or that it is not available to order. We want to earn your business and would like to be given the opportunity to do so first. Failure to contact us prior to shipping a firearm may result in additional fees.
If or when the Out of State purchase is made TSC Firearms will need to be provided with the following information.
- Purchasers name and contact information.
- Whom the firearm was purchased from, their fax number or email address and phone number.
- Purchase price including shipping and any additional fees.
- Please request that the seller includes a copy of their FFL or current driver’s license.

Washington State use tax of 10% must also be collected on any transfers that are shipped from a FFL holder. (WA State requires that use tax is collected on all firearms, including gifts.
