PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BELOW BEFORE CONTACTING CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS:

  • BE ADVISED: We do not sell or transfer Handguns to anyone under 21 years old
  • ALSO NOTE STATE IDENTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS AT END OF DOCUMENT

CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS provides incoming transfer services. To expedite the transfer of your firearm, please read, understand, and follow the appropriate instructions below.

INCOMING TRANSFERS: $100 ($75 for transfer, $25 DROS FEE) per transferred item.

NOTE: This includes guns purchased at other dealers, online auctions, etc., & transferred to CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS for pickup.

How To Complete Your Transfer:

  1. Complete your sale and pay the dealer, individual, auction, etc. for the cost of the firearm.

  2. Provide CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS with Dealer contact information.
    CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS will then provide the dealer that is mailing the firearm with a copy of our Federal Firearms License (FFL).

    If the transfer cannot be completed within 10-days of receiving the firearm, due to the failure of the FFL or Private Individual not providing the requested information herein, storage fees will be applied as outlined below.

  3. The dealer must include with the gun the following information
    If coming from a dealer: a clear, signed copy of their FFL & a CALIFORNIA shipment approval letter.
    ALL transfers must include your Name, Address, & Phone Number so we can contact you.

  4. When the gun arrives, we will attempt to call you - provided #3 was followed. YOU must ensure the dealer
    provides you with a tracking number so you can confirm delivery, just in case the dealer forgot to include your contact info.

    • DROS ITEM: YOU must show up to CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS (16706 Hawthorne Blvd. Lawndale, CA 90260) within 10 days of confirmed delivery to complete the DROS paperwork.
    • PICK UP ITEM: YOU must return to pick up your item within your DROS required pick-up timeframe. If you fail to pick up your firearm within your DROS required pick up timeframe a new DROS process will be required (which is an additional $25 DROS fee) and a $3/day storage fee will be applied retroactively to the date firearm was received by CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS. Once again, your firearm will need to be picked up with the DROS required pick up timeframe- this time per diem storage fees are being accessed. Storage fees & costs are due at pick-up time.
    • ALL Transfers can only be completed during posted shop hours.

  5. IDENTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS for TRANSFERS: STANDARD DROS IDENTIFICATION requirements apply.

  6. CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS will charge the following: $100 ($75 for transfer, $25 DROS FEE) per transferred item.

  7. IMPORTANT NOTE – Once your DROS is completed with CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS, you will have until the END OF THE DROS required PICK UP TIMEFRAME to pick up your firearm (see your DROS Printout), or we will charge $3 per day storage fee, beginning the day it was received along with a new DROS submission which must be completed within 30 days of the initial EXPIRED DROS. After 30-days with no new DROS being completed, the gun becomes property of CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS and we may, at our discretion, return the firearm to the dealer or sell the firearm to reimburse storage, administrative, and transfer fees.

CONTACT INFORMATION FOR INCOMING TRANSFERS:

CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS will attempt to call the buyer/recipient at the phone number listed on the documents that accompany the firearm/transfer with 48 hours of arrival. If possible, CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS will leave a message if nobody answers the phone.

At times, we do receive firearms without any contact information included. In such cases, it is the recipient's (buyer's) responsibility to track the firearm and verify delivery has been made. The recipient/buyer must come in within 10 calendar days of confirmed delivery in order to begin the DROS paperwork and to avoid storage fees. Storage Fees will apply beginning the day the item was received if DROS is not completed within 10 days. After 30-days with buyer not submitting CA DROS, the gun becomes property of CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS and we may, at our discretion, return the firearm to the dealer or sell the firearm to reimburse storage, administrative, and transfer fees.

LATE PICK-UP and/or LONG TERM STORAGE FEES:

  • Please be aware, to properly accommodate our retail needs we do not have space to store "your guns." We are happy to help facilitate your transfer, but ask for your help in ensuring that the firearm is picked-up within your DROS required pick up time or else we will have to charge you the $3/day for storage (retroactive from the date it was received).
  • UNEXPECTED MILITARY DEPLOYMENT: The only exception would be an unexpected military deployment, in such case, your fees are waived. However, you need to contact us at 310-371-5759 within your DROS required pick-up timeframe so that we are aware and do not charge storage fees or sell the firearm. However, a new DROS submittal will be required when you return- the charge for each DROS is a $25 state fee.

By using CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS as your transfer agent, you agree to these terms and hold CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS and its employees harmless of any and all liability and/or loss due to excessive storage fees.

ABANDONED FIREARMS

Definition of Abandoned Firearms: Firearms sent to CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS having no subsequent DROS submittal.

For Abandoned firearms, storage Fees will apply beginning the day the item was received. After 30-days with buyer not submitting CA DROS, the gun becomes property of CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS and we may, at our discretion, return the firearm to the dealer or sell the firearm to reimburse storage, administrative, and transfer fees.

You, the buyer/recipient of said items, permit CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS to sell the firearm(s), items, accessories, etc. for the total amount of storage fees, transfer fees, and administrative fees, regardless of the actual, perceived, or emotional value of the firearm(s), items, accessories, etc. Any and all such funds will be considered payment in full for all CAP TACTICAL FIREARMS expenses.
