FFL Dealer – Allen & Marshall Auctioneers & Appraisers, LLC
Allen and Marshall Auctioneers and Appraisers, LLC acquired its Federal Firearms License in October, 2014 and its Maryland State Regulated Firearms License in January of 2015. Prior to Oct. 2014, Jeff Smith, an Employee the @the Auction Company operated Smitty’s Gun Shop, LLC and maintained an FFL and MD State Regulated Firearms License from 2008-2014.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco & Explosives require that an Auction Co. that takes possession of Modern Firearms (Not Including Black Powder or Antique) possess a Federal Firearms License issued by the ATF. The license is valid for a period of 3 years and requires that meticulous records be kept and the firearms be safely stored.
Our Auction Co. being properly licensed allows you to purchase a Firearm at our auction and fill out the paperwork and us to process the background check onsite. If you have purchased a firearm at auction and then have to go somewhere else to pick it up that is a requirement by the ATF that the Paperwork be completed at the Address on the License.
Being licensed allows the Auction Company to legally consign, store, sell and process all required State and Federal paperwork required to transfer firearms. Once the firearms are consigned they are placed into our BATFE Approved Electronic Acquisition & Disposition Book. This records the information about the firearm including, Manufacturer, Model, Serial #, Caliber or Gauge, Firearm type and information about the consignor and the purchaser. The BATFE requires that we maintain Federal Records for 20 Years and the State of Maryland requires 3 years.
Allen & Marshall’s focus is the legal consignment, storage and sales of firearms consigned to the Auction Co. At this time we do not do firearm transfers other than firearms sold at our Auctions. We do not have a retail store or order items at this time.
We have 7 large 50′ Cubic foot gun safes to store consigned firearms. The building is alarmed and out lot is gated.
