Usually I get the money and my grandmother and she puts her name to whatever takes my fancy. Im just not sure what is needed to order online.
By this I am guessing you are a minor or for some reason cannot buy the guns. IF a minor, I hope yopu know tehre is some guns, mostly handguns, you still cannot legally own even IF you gardian buys them for you. Now if for some otehr reason you cannot own them, legal reasons, your grand mother is committing straw sells which could land her in hot water. IF you are in the service and over seas, that is a totally different matter and she can buy for you as a present so to speak. Now as to buy from On-line distributers, what you see is dealer prices. I as a dealer will not handle a trans action at my cost (me making nothing from the deal) so you can buy at my cost thus basically bypassing me. I pay the $300 dollars, passed all the checks, and pay the fee to renew my FFLs each 3 years so as to sell fire arms as a living, it would be money down the drain if everone could buy on line without having FFLs to those of use who are FFL holders IMHO. You can expect a FFL holder to charge you from $25 to $100 to handle the transaction, that is $25 to $100 ABOVE what it costs to get the firearm to the dealer.
Without more info on the situation as to WHY your grand mother puts her name on teh fire arms, I cannot provide much more info. I will say this, IF a minor, best check your state/local and federal laws as to WHAT you can legally have as a minor. IF you cannot buy due to legal issues, I would not want my grand mother in prison for making straw purchases. IF in the service, you can buy on line through a LOCAL FFL holder in your grand mother's area BUT do not expect the FFL holder to do so for free. he has top make money to justify the initial cost of his FFLs, his bills as a dealer, and his renewal fees. he also MUST abide byany local, state, and federal laws as to what can or cannot be sold in your area and to whom it can be sold to.
Not tryying to be a smart azz but trying to explain some basic rules tha we all FFL holders MUST abide by.
