- Client must provide contact information for the receiving FFL dealer.

Receiving a Firearm from another Dealer
- Call the SAS location you would like to receive your firearm. Provide the shipping FFL dealer’s contact information and information on the firearm itself.
- SAS will contact the FFL dealer and exchange the required documentation so the dealer can ship the firearm to SAS.
- When the firearm arrives, we must first complete the receiving process, which includes verifying the shipping FFL dealer’s information and firearm information. If you are watching the tracking information, please give us time to actually receive the firearm through this process. We cannot instantly start the transfer to the client until this process is done. When it is done, SAS will contact the client to come in and start the paperwork process.
* For California clients, the State Board of Equalization requires SAS charges Sales Tax on incoming items. You must have a copy of the receipt for our records and to figure appropriately.
* For California residents, firearms transferring must be compliant, on roster and must come with appropriate magazine capacity. Active Duty Law Enforcement Officers are exempt from this requirement. Please look here to confirm whether the firearm you would like to have transferred is on roster: http://certguns.doj.ca.gov/
* As of January 01, 2019, new California Law SB1100 went into effect, which essentially prohibits the sale and/or transfer of any Rifles or Shotguns to any person younger than 21 years of age. There is a little silver lining though, in that there are some limited exemptions to the law! If you are under 21 years of age and meet any of the exemptions below, you may purchase or transfer a firearm.
1. Possess a valid, unexpired hunting license issued by the Department of Fish and Wildlife.
2. Is an active peace officer, as described in Chapter 4.5 (commencing with section 830) of Title 3 Part 2 of the Penal Code, who is authorized to carry a firearm in the course and scope of his or her employment.
3. Is a reserve peace officer, as defined in section 832.6 of the Penal Code, who is authorized to carry a firearm in the course and scope of his or her employment as a reserve peace officer.
4. Is an active federal officer or law enforcement agent who is authorized to carry a firearm in the course and scope of his or her employment.
5. Is an active or honorably discharged member of the United States Armed Forces, the National Guard, the Air National Guard or active reserve components of the United States.
As in all things pertaining to a firearm purchase, you must provide proof of these exemptions, whether by license or ID, at the time you initiate the DROS.
These exemptions only apply to persons under 21 years of age when buying a Rifle or Shotgun. You must still be 21 years of age to purchase Pistols, Revolvers or lower Receivers. There are no exemptions to those firearm types.
