Need some help buying online
Guys I'm new the forums obviously. I currently own a P226 that was bought at a local gun store. I'd like to purchase my next firearm online but I don't understand the process. My local store will not accept transfers or handle the paperwork so I'm kind of lost as to How I should go about purchasing..
I'm in northern IL if that matters. Anyone in my area can point me in the right direction?
An FFL has to receive the gun and do the required paperwork. You'll have to find a store (or any dealer FFL) that will do the transfer. There is no other way.

First thing you need to do is find a local FFL dealer that will receive your gun and process your paperwork. You can usually find them in your local area. Try calling a few gun shops and ask them if they will receive the gun and process it. They will usually charge you like $15 to $20 for doing this. Then you purchase the gun and give them your FFL's information. Should be about it.
You can go to gunbroker and use their search function to see if there is another shop near you. GunBroker.com - FFL Holder Network
Bud's gun shop and several other dealers also have a search list function, and it is easier to use the list from the dealer you have chosen as they already have the FFL copy on file.
