I've never ordered a gun online. I can tell you when I made purchases from a FFL dealer at his home, I did have to fill out the federal gun form. He placed a call to confirm everything was legal from my end. Then he called his supplier. I paid him his cost of the gun and his fee, which at the time was $20.00. Gun store fees are probably closer to $30-35.00. In short, you will have to file the white (used to be yellow) federal gun ownership form before any gun can be sold to you. Visit the FFL location where you want the gun sent before you buy the gun online.
