A FFL MUST BE on-file with us ALREADY before we will accept any order for a post-1898 firearm!   

Federal Firearms Licenses cannot be "sent to us later".   It is a very good idea to send us a signed copy of your (or your local transfer dealer's) FFL in advance for our files to avoid missing out on the item you may want.  This is SOP in the industry.  We will accept a FAX of a FFL. We will also NOW accept (and actually prefer) a scanned & emailed copies of your (or your dealers) FFL.
