Before purchasing, however, buyers must obtain whatever licensing is required by their state. This will require meeting certain requirements regarding citizenship, criminal records, age, mental health, etc. The process can take up to 120 days to complete your background check, which is different from the 10-day waiting period required in later steps of the process. Check your state’s laws before planning to purchase any firearm.

If you are looking to purchase a Winchester rifle, you can purchase directly from the manufacturer or from a distributor. Check the company’s website for promotions and specials, or look for them at gun shows in your area. You can handle the gun at the show, and discuss your specific needs with the company representatives. Check the company’s blog site for information about SHOT show specials:

You cannot have a firearm shipped to your home. A Federal Firearms License (FFl) is required of dealers who receive guns and transfer them to their new owners. The dealer must ensure that the proper paperwork is completed and if you purchase a gun online, you must notify the seller of the dealer’s name and contact information. You may be asked to supply your dealer’s FFL certificate, if the dealer is new to the seller. The dealer will charge a fee for his or her service, but he or she will make your transaction go through smoothly. Often dealers will help buyers select a gun and place the order on their behalf.

You can also purchase through a distributor in your area. There you can find knowledgeable people who can, not only sell you a gun, but they can instruct you in the care and maintenance of your new weapon. Many of the shops also provide repair services and sell accessories and hunting supplies that you may need. The Winchester website offers a convenient map of the U.S. to help customers locate distributers closest to them. Just click on a state and the display will recommend retailers in your area:

You can also find used guns through pawn shops, gun shops, newspaper ads, and on websites such as GunBroker.com, but you will still need to go through a local dealer to make a transaction. Sites like eBay.com or Craigslist.com do not list guns, because of the stringent laws applying to their sales.
