All firearms must ship from a valid FFL dealer. ARES Consulting LLC (dba ARES Arms) will not accept any transfers from private individuals or non-FFL dealers. If a firearm is purchased from a private individual, they must take it to a valid FFL dealer for shipping. This ensures the FFL dealer’s ability to authenticate the sender and package contents. If a package is received from a private individual or non-FFL dealer, it will be refused by ARES Arms and be sent back to the original sender.
Once you have purchased your firearm, please send an email with the following information to email@example.com or fax it to (409) 684-0395.
