Yes, you can purchase a firearm online just like any other product. The only difference is that we cannot ship a firearm directly to you. A firearm must be shipped to a licensed firearms dealer, where you can pick it up.
No, we can not ship a firearm to your house, unless you have an FFL.
An “FFL” is a Federal Firearm License. These licenses are commonly held by gun stores, pawn shops, and sporting goods stores. However, there are also many individuals that hold a FFL.
Yes, you must contact the FFL dealer you’ve chosen to make them aware of the transfer and to make any necessary arrangements for picking up your firearm. It is also recommended that you inquire about any possible transfer fees they may charge.
By not contacting the dealer, there is a higher chance that the dealer will not accept your firearm, or that the dealer will not be available when the package is expected to arrive. If the firearm is returned to us for one of these reasons, additional shipping charges and/or return fees may apply.
If you don’t have a dealer in your area contact us before placing your order.
Yes, but not through us. Any necessary paperwork and background check is completed between you (the actual buyer/transferee) and the receiving dealer. This is usually done at the time you pick up your firearm.
When first contacting the dealer you’ve chosen, it is recommended that you make arrangements with them to pick up your firearm. When we ship your firearm, we include your contact information in the package. Most dealers will use this information to notify you once the firearm is ready to be picked up.
Some dealers may require extra time before a firearm is ready to be picked up. If you see that the package has been delivered, but you haven’t received a call from the dealer, you may also contact them yourself to inquire when the firearm will be ready.
After an order has shipped, you can find tracking information in your order details by checking your email. Once your package has shipped, there will be a tracking number available that you can use on the FedEx, USPS or other website, depending on which carrier shipped your package.
Yes, we offer shipping outside United States.
I just received my tracking number, but the carrier’s website said the tracking number was not found. What happened?
Once we have processed your shipping label, and until the package has been scanned by the shipping carrier, there may be a delay before you start seeing tracking details. This may take up to 24 hours to update on the carrier’s website.
I chose an expedited shipping method for my firearm, but it still hasn’t shipped. Why is that?
There are a few factors that may delay the shipment of a firearm. These include, but are not limited to:
- Whether we have the receiving dealer’s Federal Firearms License (FFL) on file, or if we need to obtain that from them
- Receiving proper credentials for law enforcement firearm purchases
- “Non-compliant” firearms being shipped to a state with restrictions (such as California). This may require approval from the receiving dealer and/or additional documentation
Unfortunately, many of the factors that could delay a firearm shipment are out of our control. However, there are a couple things you can do that may minimize the chance of a delay:
- Choosing an FFL dealer from our database. These dealers are on file with us, which means we already have a copy of their FFL.
- Verifying that the firearm you want to purchase is legal in your city or state. Even if you choose an FFL dealer from our database, this doesn’t guarantee that we have the additional, relevant documentation required for “non-compliant” firearms. There may be additional paperwork required that is unique to each purchase, or documentation that the FFL dealer has to send to us.
If your package contains a firearm and has already been shipped, the shipping address cannot be changed. To change the shipping address on an eligible package, there is a $50 fee per package.
Packages that contain $350 or more of merchandise may require a signature; otherwise, it is generally up to the driver’s discretion to determine whether a signature is required. All packages containing a firearm will always require an adult signature. After three delivery attempts, the package will be returned to us.
If you prefer for it to be drop off without signature then contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
