Federal Firearms License (FFL) = Gun store

Buy a gun off the net, it must be delivered to you via local gun store of your choice, with a background check (I assume that's why you asked).

An FFL is someone who holds a Federal Firearms License. A gun purchased online must be transferred from the seller to you thru an FFL. You must fine an FFL in your area to arrange the gun transfer. The FFL will charge you a transfer fee of typically between $20 to $50 to handle the transfer. FFL's don't always work out of gunshops. Many of the best ones work out of their home.

Here are a couple of FFL lists you can use to locate an FFL dealer in your area. Contact the FFL and they'll explain how the transfer process works. Gunshop FFL's will usually charge a much higher transfer fee than home based ones.

The GunBroker home page has a tutorial for buyers and sellers explaining the laws and the process.
