The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is a component within the U.S. Department of Justice that has been created to regulate illicit activities connected to unlawful sales and purchases of guns and explosive devices and tax evasion committed by marketplace agents involved in tobacco and alcohol distribution. This agency has several main targets, and one of them is to prevent unauthorized production, possession, and use of firearms, increase awareness about gun use, and sanction armed felons, arms traffickers who operate domestically and abroad, and violent criminal groups - those who break the rules put in place to safeguard the public.
Here you can find ATF Forms that govern transfers, taxation, and permits related to the production and possession of various weapons. These documents will be useful for private citizens who would like to defend themselves with firearms using their manufacturing skills instead of spending money on buying guns from dealerships and organizations whose operation is closely monitored by the ATF - you need to analyze every gun purchase, pay taxes on time, assist firearm owners with mandatory registration, and manage the importation of weapons with proper authorization. Additionally, you can carry out interstate trade and expand your business after you receive a specific permit issued by the ATF to conduct this commercial activity.
Whenever you deal with firearms - you want to purchase a shotgun to protect yourself and your family, you have established a dealership and want to conduct legitimate transactions that involve weapons, or you have decided you do not need a gun anymore and want to transfer it to another person - there is an ATF Form for you. If you prefer electronic submission because you do not like paper applications, you can prepare ATF E-Forms, available for your convenience.
