Gun transfers in TN

Recommended Posts

I am a permanent resident of TN, but currently stationed in Nevada. For the first time in 4 years, I bought a gun online and the transfer process was very different than I remeber it being in TN or other states I've been stationed. I'm not current on changes to federal gun buying laws so maybe I'm behind the curve or it's state-related. I'd like to know if transfers are like this back in TN.

(1) No individual FFL holders, only gun stores--I've usually gone to a residence where the transfer was conducted

(2) $60 transfer fees--I was used to paying $20 for the guy to make a 5-minute phone call

(3) Up to 7-day wait period between filling out paperwork and taking possession of the firearm--Used to walking out with the firearm right then and there

EDITED- after a quick search your issues are because of Nevada law and NOT federal regulations. 

1) thats something specific to NV and maybe other states.

2) according to what I could find NV charges $25 per BGC and last time I paid in TN it was $10. 

3) another gem from NV and at least a couple other states adopted this practice.

(1) An individual can have a FFL in their residence. Few and far between. Unfortunately for me someone in my neighborhood does. I say unfortunately because I can drive over in 3 minutes. Money pit for me. 
(2) Most transfers amounts depend on the shop. Lots of shops won’t take transfers from internet vendors. My FFL is $30. 
(3) Depending on how busy TICS is you most likely will walk out with your purchase.

used to live in Vegas, if you need a good FFL around there let me know

Yes please. Don't know when I'll purchase another firearm, but just in case that would be much appreciated!
