Cripple Creek Firearms & Gunsmithing- FFL Transfer Services
FFL Transfers in Euless and the DFW Area
I believe Cripple Creek Firearms is one of the least expensive providers of this service in the Euless and greater DFW area. We’re conveniently located in the middle of the Dallas, Ft. Worth metropolitan area in Euless, Texas – and the fee to transfer your new firearm is $20 for the first firearm and $5 for each subsequent firearm in the same transfer – and if you have a Texas CHL/LTC it is even easier! Simply contact us regarding your transfer, complete the required federal paperwork, pass a quick computerized background check, pay the transfer fee and leave with your firearm. Your Texas CHL/LTC serves as your background check if you have one.
Initiating an FFL transfer is easy. Simply purchase your firearm from a remote dealer and provide us with that dealer’s contact information and we take it from there. When your firearm arrives, I will contact you so you can come and pick up your new firearm.
Key Points of Federal Law as it relates to FFL Transfers
- Under federal law, any person who engages in the business of dealing in firearms must be licensed.
- Federal law requires that persons who are engaged in the business
of dealing in firearms be licensed by ATF. The penalty for dealing in
firearms without a license is up to five years in prison, a fine up to
$250,000, or both.
- A person can be engaged in the business of dealing in firearms
regardless of the location in which firearm transactions are
conducted. For example, a person can be engaged in the business
of dealing in firearms even if the person only conducts firearm
transactions at gun shows or through the internet.
- As a general rule, you will need a license if you repetitively buy and
sell firearms with the principal motive of making a profit. In contrast, if you only make occasional sales of firearms from your personal collection, you do not need to be licensed.
This above list is by no means all inclusive; more information about the requirements of having a federal firearms license can be found at www.ATF.gov and by contacting your local ATF Office. A list of local offices can be found at https://www.atf.gov/contact/atf-field-divisions.
Examples of who needs a FFL license and who does not:

- Joe recently lost his job, and to finance his living expenses he has been buying firearms from friends and reselling them though an internet site. He has successfully sold a few firearms this way, and has several more listed for sale at any one time. Joe must be licensed because he is repetitively buying and selling firearms with the primary objective of profit.
- David enjoys hunting and has a large variety of hunting rifles. He likes to have the newest models with the most current features. To pay for his new rifles, a few times a year David sells his older weapons to fellow hunters for a profit. David does not need
to be licensed because he is engaging in occasional sales for enhancement of his personal collection
- Debby has three handguns at home, and decides that she no longer wants two of them. She posts an advertisement in the local newspaper and sells the two handguns to a local collector. Debby does not need a license because she is not engaging in the repetitive purchase and resale of firearms as a regular course of trade or business.
