What to Expect When Purchasing a Firearm

Purchasing your first firearm is an exciting endeavor, but you need to know where to start. At Nemo Arms, we pride ourselves on being a reputable resource for those wishing to purchase their first firearm as world leaders in the industry. 

Know Your Purpose

When going to browse your local gun shop’s selection of firearms, the dealer will most likely start with a simple question, “What is the purpose you are buying it for?”. If you’re like most buyers, you probably want it for multiple reasons, including self-defense purposes which means you will want it to be reliable. Or perhaps you want to also compete with it, so you want it to be highly accurate. Maybe you want a firearm that you can hunt with, so it needs to be durable, yet lightweight. Whatever the case may be, it’s crucial to keep your intended use in mind when selecting your first firearm so that you can decide which key features are most important to you. 

What you will need: 

  • To purchase a rifle, you will need to be at least 18 years old, and 21+ to purchase a handgun or receiver frame.
  • current government-issued photo I.D. (ie. Driver’s License, Commercial Driver’s License, Learner’s Permit, License to Carry) With your current place of residence. 
  • A Permit to Purchase for certain semi-automatic military-style assault weapons. Check your state regulations.

Background Checks

Since the passage of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993, those who purchase firearms from licensed dealers in the United States must submit to a background check to determine if they are eligible to buy and possess a gun. Licensed dealers conduct a background check through the FBI NICS system. Once performing the background check, the NICS has three days to approve or deny the sale. There are many determining factors for eligibility, including restraining orders, felony convictions, harassment/stalking, domestic violence,  dishonorable discharge from the armed forces, and more. 

Now that you know what to expect when purchasing a firearm, please feel free to browse our selection of rifles, shotguns, suppressors, gear, and more on our website. 

To view our selection in person, find a licensed dealer near you with our dealer locator: https://nemoarms.com/dealer-locator/
