Wholesale and retail dealers of small firearms and other firearms in South Carolina are regulated and licensed by the state’s Law Enforcement Division.
A requirement of licensing is that you furnish the Department with evidence of filing a $10,000 firearms dealer surety bond.
Obtaining your firearms dealer bond through our agency is easy and takes only a few minutes.
Qualifying for the South Carolina firearms dealer bond is perhaps the easiest part of your licensing process.
When you call us, our agency will take a standard, short surety bond application from you over the phone. After payment of the premium --- $100 ---- the bond will be issued to you immediately. This bond is issued to you without a credit inquiry or the underwriting procedure so common for many other types of surety bonds.
Once purchased, a copy of the bond can be emailed to you for no additional charge. The original surety bond --- which you will sign as Principal --- and file with the Department, will be sent by the same or the following business day.
The firearms dealer surety bond is issued with a standard term of one year. A current and active surety bond must always remain on file with the Department as a condition of licensing.
Our agency also offers you the option to prepay the bond for 2 or 3 years, thereby offering you a savings over year to year renewal of your bond premium.
The breakdown is as follows:
The purpose of your surety bond is a financial guarantee which ensures your compliance with all laws relating to firearms dealing, particularly Act No. 330, Acts of 1965, and any related amendments and additions to the law.
