Firearm Search

Firearm Search.  If you have a firearm that you purchased from a private sale and are concern with the firearm being stolen we will perform a Gun Check. We charge a minimum of $15 to research information requests due to the nature of our record-keeping.

STOLEN FIREARMS. A check of the NCIC database will be performed for each firearm included in a transaction to determine if the firearm is reportedas stolen. In the event that a firearm is stolen, the firearm is undeliverable. The transfer will be denied and the stolen firearm will be reported to the law enforcement agency with jurisdiction over the FFL’s location. The FFL Dealer will also be notified that the firearm appears to be stolen and that it is not to be transferred. The investigating law enforcement agency will make a separate inquiry into the NCIC Stolen Firearms database and will seize the firearm if it is confirmed stolen or require the FFL to place a hold on the firearm and not transfer it to anyone until further notice. If multiple responses to the stolen inquiry are returned, the FFL may be asked to provide further descriptive information to identify the firearm. There is no legal requirement for TICS to do these checks for FFLs prior to them taking a firearm in trade or into pawn, however it is in the best interest of the FFLs, law enforcement and the rightful owners of stolen firearms to provide this service..
