How to purchase firearms & Ammunition

If you’ve never bought a firearm or ammo online before, don’t worry. It’s simple. Just follow our step-by-step instructions below.

We, Family Tradition Firearms, sell firearms only in accordance with Federal, State, and Local firearm laws. You must be 18 or older to purchase long guns and 21 or older to purchase hand guns. Please check your local and state laws. Please see the restrictions at the bottom of the page concerning firearms and ammo.

Step-by-step Instructions for buying a firearm

1

Find a firearm and verify firearm laws

After finding a firearm that you want, verify that the product you wish to purchase from FamilyTraditionFirearms.com meet your state, county, or city firearm laws.

2

Find an FFL dealer in your area

Your new firearm will have to be shipped to an FFL dealer in your area. 

Once you find one, contact them and let them know you would like to receive a firearm for transfer from FamilyTraditionFirearms.com

Provide the FFL dealer with our email address where they can send a copy of their FFL and their business address.

Our email address is support@familytraditionfirearms.com

3

Pay and wait

Please contact us letting us know which firearm you want. Once we receive your payment and the FFL dealers information we will mail the firearm to your chosen FFL dealer and send you a tracking number so you can track the firearm throughout the mailing process.

We accept cash or post office money orders. Please do not mail cash–this is for in person only

Please mail your post office money order, including the total price for the firearm plus shipping ($25.00 for handguns and $40.00 for long guns), to the following address:

Family Tradition Firearms

110 Yorkshire Drive

Reidsville, NC 27320

Background Check

Once the FFL dealer receives your firearm, they will contact you in order to complete the necessary paperwork. 

Your FFL Dealer is required to have you fill out a 4473 and pass a background check through NICS. 

This is the same form and background check you would complete if you purchased a firearm at any gun store.

Take your Firearm Home

Once you pass the background check, you are free to take your firearm home!
