Manny DelaCruz - CEO/GunAuction.com
That's a question we get asked quite a bit. The answer, of course, is yes. GunAuction.com doesn't actually deal in the transfer of firearms. What we deal in, is the bidding process for those who want to sell their guns.

I'll give you an example: Let's say I want to buy a new gun from a gun shop. I go in, fill out all the appropriate paperwork, and pay my money. Then, after the end of my waiting period (most states don't have waiting periods, but some do), I go in and pick up my new toy.

How is using GunAuction.com different? Well, you'll still have to go in and sign papers, and go through the same legal process of transferring ownership of that gun as if you were buying the gun from the gun shop (unless you're an FFL holder, yourself.) Buying something at auction gives you the opportunity to find that something at a much lower price.

Of course, that won't always be the case. If something is really in demand, you might actually pay more for that item when you buy it at auction. But the chances are, if you're looking for something pretty normal, you're going to get a great price for it. And with a gun shop, you're pretty well stuck with the gun shop's prices. You may shop around from dealer to dealer, but most gun shops have the same prices because they're buying from the same distributors. With online auctions, you're getting a lot of used guns - which have great prices!

With online auctions, you don't have the convenience of handling the gun before buying it. But with GunAuction.com, you have a 3-Day Inspection Period, and if you don't like the gun, you can return it! And with the ability to post a review of the person you're purchasing from, you're a lot better off online.

How are the transfers managed? If you win your gun at auction, you then find someone in your area who is an FFL holder. An FFL (Federal Firearms License) holder is someone authorized by the Federal government to manage the transfer of guns. Most people who post guns at this site are FFL holders. Any store that sells guns is usually an FFL. They'll be able to manage the transfer of your gun from the Seller to you. Of course, that means you'll have to go find an FFL holder, but there are over 90,000 in this country - we don't think that'll be a problem. Just visit your local gun store, they'll know what you're talking about. You can always use our FFL Network to find an FFL near you.

We're not going to "gild the lily" when it comes to the process. It takes patience to wait for your gun to show up at the dealer. But going through the process of bidding on an item is fun, and you might as well get a good deal for your money.

That's where we come in.
