How to handle a transferred firearm that was purchased at another FFL

  1. Sign in to the FastBound website. 
  2. Create a contact for the entity that sold and transferred the firearm, if it does not exist. 
  3. Acquire the firearm in the FastBound website. 
  4. Have the person receiving the firearm fill out a 4473, if required. 
  5. Dispose of the firearm in the FastBound website. 
  6. If you need to collect a fee, in Paladin, add the fee to an invoice and process the payment.
