Items Necessary for a General Firearm Purchase
Driver’s license, State issued ID card with picture, or passport
If primary form of identification does not have current address on it, a proof of address is necessary for a firearm purchase.
Proof of Address
Florida vehicle registration, Florida fishing license, county property tax form (the tax form must be in your name, not in the name of a trust), Florida hunting license.
Purchasing a Handgun
To purchase a handgun with only the above material, you are subject to a 3-5 business day (excludes weekends and holidays) hold. To be exempt from the 3-5 business day hold, you must either have a Florida concealed weapon firearm license or be trading in a handgun to purchase another handgun. To purchase a handgun, you must be at least 21 years of age. To purchase a long gun you must be at least 18 years of age.
Purchasing a Used Gun
At the Alamo, we allow customers to purchase used handgun immediately after we purchase them. According to Collier county ordinance code 2013-21, § 8, all secondhand goods cannot be sold until 30 days after acquisition. If a used firearm is put on layaway before the 30 days is up, the customer is required to come in only after the 30 days have passed to fill out an ATF form 4473 and undergo a background check. If the customer does not have a FLCWFL and the used gun is a handgun, the date the 4473 was filled out begins the 3-5 business day hold.
