ALERT: Effective January 4, 2021, a new Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) will begin offering handgun transfer services to the public. Pursuant to D.C. Official Code § 7-2504.10, because there is now an active FFL offering services to the public, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) will no longer provide handgun transfer services. All new FFL business will go through private FFL dealers. All business originally received by MPD will be completed by MPD.
