Hello, all. New Virginia resident here. I'm offloading a few rifles and pistols and am looking for a NOVA area FFL who offers shipping services. Any advice is appreciated and I am willing to drive a bit if need be. Thank you.

Reach out to C&R Firearms. Super easy folks to deal with which isn’t always the case in this region. I’d recommend walking in and discussing what you had in mind.

What kind of rifles?  Have they been sold, or are you just prepping for sale?

Thank you, gentlemen. I will reach out to C&R.

@Rumsonv2, mostly military surplus stuff. Some of it is listed in the EE.

Outdoor Arms in Burke also ships.

As for FFLs to avoid, do not ship anything through Vienna Arsenal. Expensive, slow and disorganized.

Is this a store front place or table top/home office type FFL?

Never heard of them and always looking for new gun shops.

Interesting. Been in there a couple times since they opened. Seem like nice people but have never done business with them. I drive by there at least once a week and I’ve not seen any cars there for several months. I got the impression they closed. Glad to know they didn’t. Will have to stop in next week to see if they have anything I’m looking for.

Where do you live OP?  Given the traffic in the area, a drive to Manassas might not be as short as you expect.

On a related note, this weekend I dropped by the leather repair place that The Gun Dude used to be located above in Falls Church .  It's a tattoo shop now.

Home/garage FFL. I found him when looking for FFLs that don’t rape people on private party transfer fees.

Kitchen table guys seem like the best bet in my part of Nova given how many LGSes have closed in recent years.  Many of those who remain have their transfer prices set to "prison rape."  Those stores seem to break down into two groups:  1) those that don't like doing transfers and try to discourage the practice so you'll pay 50-100% more for their overpriced stock instead, and 2) those that are hanging on by a thread, with very little NIB stock, and who are relying on transfers to keep the lights on.

I miss Quantico Tactical.

I was using a FFL working out of their house until they moved. He had great rates and service. ESS was the last place I used which was not too bad but I don’t think they ship out.

You can ship rifles yourself through the USPS.

When I lived in Fairfax the FedEx store in Fairfax City would let me ship handguns to FFLs.
