Bought a Gun Online?
Here is what you do next
Step 1: Purchase your firearm online. Go ahead, you deserve it. Great! Now that you have exercised your liberty, it’s time for some oppression. Contrary to public opinion, all firearms sold online MUST ship to an FFL for transfer, and yes, a background check. If we are listed on the seller’s website, select us as the receiving dealer and complete your purchase. If we are not listed, there should be a note field in the checkout that asks for your dealer, just type Andrews Arms and let us know where to send our license (the button below will help).
Step 2: Let us know what you got! Call, Email, Text us or use the Button below to let us know what’s coming. When you contact us, let us know your Name, Contact information, and what you purchased. Also, the seller may need our license info. If this is the case, send us the email of the seller. Be sure to include your order number as well so we can make sure they get the right details!
Step 3: Schedule an appointment to pick up your item. We aren’t open all the time, so it’s important you plan ahead with your pickup and set a time and date for when you want to come get your stuff. We schedule customers to ensure that your are served timely and efficiently.
*Additional Firearms transferred at the same time will be charged $10 each.

Purchasing a firearm can seem difficult, but the process is really quite easy, as long as you pay attention to the details!
First, you must be of the right age and citizenship to purchase firearms. For Rifles and Shotguns, the buyer must be at least 18 years of age, with proper state issued Id (ID card or drivers license); and for long guns, out of state personnel can purchase items from Pennsylvania dealers, as long as the item is legal in their place of residence.
For Pistols and Receivers, the buyer must be at least 21 years of age, reside in the state where they are purchasing the firearm, and have proper ID.
A Proper ID is the following:
- Issued by the State you reside in, either Drivers License or State ID (PA does not allow Concealed Carry License to be used as ID)
- ID must be current and not expired
- Address on the ID must match the address that you live. (Official change of address cards can be accepted with original ID)
- If you are Active Military stationed in the State of Pennsylvania, but not a PA state citizen, you must bring a copy of your orders placing you in the state for all purchases/transfers of Pistols or Receivers
After all paperwork and background checks are completed, you will need your desired form of payment. We take cash and all Major Credit cards.
We make it as easy as possible! Anytime a firearm is purchased/sold online, it must be shipped to a Licensed dealer to complete the sale. During your checkout process, the seller will most likely ask who the firearm is being shipped to (your preferred dealer). Some sellers even have an option that allows you to select the dealer from a list or search.
Since we like to make life easier on you, we can already be found on all the most popular online firearms retailer websites. (If you find a site we are not listed, let us know and we will try to get listed!) Select us as the receiving dealer at checkout and the seller will send us the item once they verify all license information is correct and current.
If we are not listed, we will have to send our license to the seller. Simply fill out the transfer request form with any information you may have, and we will figure it out from there!
Once the item arrives, we will send you an email with a link that will allow you to schedule a time for pickup.
