Buying Your first Gun in Ohio

We make buying your first firearm easy and fun


Wether you're thinking about buying your first gun, or ready to 'pull-the-trigger', Powder Room Firearms makes the process easy, quick and fun. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff loves to guide people through the process, and ensure you're happy with your purchase.


Some questions to think about:

  • What is the purpose of this firearm - concealed carry, target shooting, hunting?
  • What is your overall skill level?
  • What are your plans to safely secure it?


If you already have a model of firearm in mind, we'll get it out of the display, explain how it works, and let you handle it. If it is the right match for you, we can proceed to begin the quick purchasing process. If you aren't sure which gun is best for you, we'll recommend a few choices, let you handle them, and work to make such you have the right match.


When the right match is made, we'll move forward to actually purchasing the firearm. Ohio doesn't have a waiting period or registration


The quick purchasing process:

  • Have a current state issued ID with current address
  • Complete the background check form (aka form 4473)
  • We call the info into the National Instant Check System which performs the actual background check - often takes less than 10 minutes
  • Once approved, you can purchase the firearm like an everyday retail sale.
