Live bidders may fill out the required form 4473, and get an instant FBI NICS background check by phone at the auction after you pay. If your NICS background check clears, as is usually the case, you can take the guns the same day. If there is a NICS delay, you will need to come back after NICS clears you.
* Modern long guns can be sold live at the auction to residents of most states.
* Modern hand guns can be sold live at the auction ONLY to residents of Kansas. Residents of other states may bid on & buy modern handguns, but must arrange shipment of modern handguns to an FFL dealer in their home state.
* Out of state & absentee bidders can have guns shipped to FFL dealers in their home town. Most gun shops will receive these for you and legally transfer them to you for a modest fee. You will need to have them send Kull Auction Co. a signed copy of their FFL with your name, noting it is for your purchases.
