Bristlecone can facilitate private and dealer firearms transfers.  To initiate a transfer from another dealer or an online purchase, please email with a copy of the FFL and information on the shipment.  You must be a CO resident with valid identification to take possession of a firearm from Bristlecone.

All incoming firearms shipments must include the following in the package:

  • Signed copy of dealer’s FFL (incoming firearms must come from a dealer or distributor)
  • Phone number, email and contact name of transferor
  • Name, phone number and address of transferee or buyer
  • Make, model and serial number of the item being transferred

If we receive shipments from that are not compliant with Colorado State Law C.R.S. 18-12-302 with regards to magazine capacity over 15 rounds, you will be charged a minimum of $15 for our gunsmith to make the magazines CO compliant before you are able to take possession of the firearm and magazines (unless you are law enforcement, in which case please notify us via email at and bring LE credentials upon pick-up).  It may take up to 24 hours for firearms to be checked in and prepared for pickup after arriving. Customers will be called as soon as their firearm is ready for pickup at our facility.
