If No Gander Mountain Store Is Near You, You May Use Another FFL Dealer to Receive Your Online Firearm Purchase
You may reside in a state where there is no Gander Mountain store. If so, there’s no need to worry. You can still receive an online-purchased firearm by using a local Federal Firearms Licensed Dealer, known as an FFL dealer. The local FFL dealer receives the firearm; you complete the needed government paper work to satisfy all Federal, State, and local laws concerning the transfer of firearms with that local dealer; and they transfer the firearm into your possession.
Gander Mountain has an extensive list of local FFL dealers willing to provide this firearm transfer service. After choosing a firearm and adding it to your cart, click on Checkout and you’ll be given the option of Pick Up at Independent Firearms Dealer and the opportunity to Search for FFL Dealers. Please be aware that these dealers, at their discretion, may charge a transfer fee. If you already have a local dealer that you have previously used for firearms transfers and you don’t see them in our list, please contact us at 1-888-542-6337 and our Sales Associate will work with you to get them set up in our system. After the selected FFL dealer receives your firearm, you will be notified that the firearm has arrived.
When you arrive at the selected firearm dealer’s place of business, take a few minutes and examine the firearm that you ordered from Gander Mountain. Verify it is the firearm that you ordered by checking the make, model, and caliber/gauge of the firearm. Then you can begin the process of a legal firearm transfer at your local FFL dealer. If there is an issue with the firearm you ordered, do not complete the paperwork and background check. Please call our customer service immediately at 1-888-5GANDER (1-888-542-6337).
Federal Firearm laws require that the purchaser must be the one to receive the firearm and complete the federal and state paperwork (if required by state), background check, and any other laws or regulations governing the transfer of firearms where the transfer is taking place.
