"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government"
Before a licensed firearms retailer can sell a firearm, the purchaser must complete, under penalty of perjury, the Firearms Transaction Record. Once the form is completed, and before any firearm is transferred, the purchaser must pass a mandatory background check through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), run by the FBI. Once the purchaser passes the background check establishing that he/she is not a prohibited person, the firearm may be transferred.

The Purchaser represents and warranties that they are legally entitled to receive and possess a firearm under Indiana and Federal Law.
If this is not the case, M & J Firearms is NOT responsible for any fees or costs related to any firearm transferred to M & J Firearms from any FFL Holder or Individual. A fee of 25% of the retail value of the item transferred, or $100, whichever is greater, will be charged to the purchase at that time to cover all labor and fees associated with paperwork, shipping, restocking, etc.
Any transferred firearm that is not picked up within 180 days of receipt will be considered "Abandoned Property." The abandoned property will be forfeited to M & J Firearms unless the delay is caused by a denial appeal to the background check process.
