How Firearms Online works

For firearms dealers

Firearms dealers can enter and save Pistol Transfer Applications (with the form date of June 2016, located in the lower left hand corner) through Firearms Online. The application will show a pending status while law enforcement runs background checks. Unfortunately, our system can't currently process the new Firearms Transfer Application.

For law enforcement

Law enforcement can use Firearms Online to:

  • Revoke concealed pistol licenses
  • Change a dealer license status
  • View license history
  • Print concealed pistol and firearms dealer licenses
  • Submit license fees

Please continue to accept the June 2016 Pistol Transfer Application from firearms dealers until we update Firearms Online.
