Buying firearms online and transferring them into Connecticut is easy.
- Purchase your firearm online from your favorite dealer (or one of our recommendations).
- Let them know you will be using us (Safe Guns CT, Ziggy’s LLC) for your FFL. We are set up with the most popular online sites already. If they do not already have our FFL information we will send it to them ASAP.
- Contact us (text 860.294.4498 or email email@example.com) with the following information: Your Name, Dealer Purchased From, Firearm(s) Ordered. To speed up the process you can send us a photo of your CT Permit.
- We will text, email or call you when your gun arrives at our location. We will set up a time to meet. We are open Monday-Friday, 8AM-6PM and Saturday 9AM-4PM (we set our hours based upon CT SFLU’s hours, as they have to give approval for each sale).
- We meet at your appointment time (we are located at 265 Airline Rd, Clinton, CT), and you will fill out ATF’s 4473, and Connecticut’s DPS-67-C, and DPS-3-C.
- We finish the paperwork, obtain an approval from the State of Connecticut, and hand you your firearm.
Transfers are $30 per firearm. We do offer a $5 discount off of each transfer for current or prior service (includes military, fire, police, EMS).
We also offer a ‘Transfer Club’ which allows unlimited transfers for $250 per year ($225 for service members). Additionally, this membership allows you with inside access to our estate fresh buys with a 10% discount. NOTE: Transfer club is per person and is non-refundable.
We are now offering NFA Class III transfers for $75.
We follow all applicable state and federal laws. You are responsible to make sure you are not prohibited from owning a firearm (see below) and that your purchase is legal in the state of Connecticut. Should you have a dealer ship a firearm to us that is illegal or you are prohibited from owning, you will be charged for both the transfer and shipping back to the dealer, and/or we will keep the firearm (at our discretion) and no refund is given.
