Having gone through these initial steps, Becker Tactical will then contact the seller on your behalf, and will
send a copy of our license to the seller. We can also forward your payment on your
behalf so that everything arrives at once. The seller then ships your item(s)

then complete the necessary background check paperwork, and receive your firearm.
