What You Need To Know
We only accept firearms from licensed dealers with a valid FFL.
Any firearms sent to Trop Gun Shop from a private individual will be refused or sent back to the licensed FFL closest to that individual. The individual will then be responsible for making the arrangements through that FFL to get the firearm back and/or shipped to Trop correctly. No Exceptions!
You will be contacted when your firearm is ready for pickup.
We understand that you are excited to receive your purchase and are eagerly watching the tracking information for delivery. However, delivery confirmation does not mean your firearm is ready for pick-up. We need time to properly receive and process incoming transfers in compliance with state and federal laws. This process typically occurs within 2 business days; however, it can take longer depending on overall order volume. We will call and/or email you when your firearm is ready, so we ask that you please be patient and allow the process to work. All transfers are processed as fast as possible depending on current volume.
Please allow yourself ample time for pick-up.
When coming in to pick-up your transfer, you will need to sign-in at our gun counter to initiate paperwork and undergo the background check. Depending on when you arrive, you may experience wait times based on the volume of customers in our store, as well as delays in the Pennsylvania Instant Check System (PICS). Our busiest times are typically Friday evenings and weekends. Please plan accordingly.
You must take possession of your firearm(s).
It is possible that the firearm you receive from another dealer or manufacturer does not meet your expectations upon pick-up. However, you must still take possession of the firearm. From there, you can contact the seller for a resolution. During that time, we can not maintain possession of your firearm(s). Our role is to simply facilitate the transfer in accordance with the law. Any issues between you and the seller are exactly that, and we will not intervene nor interact on anybody’s behalf.
Private Party Transfers (Person-To-Person)
If you are doing a Private Party Transfer, meaning you are buying and/or selling a firearm to/from another private individual, both individuals must be in the store to complete the transfer. If the seller is out of state, or otherwise cannot come into the store, then they must ship the firearm through a licensed dealer.
