How do I buy a gun online?
Purchasing a gun online is not difficult, although the first time can be confusing. It is the same as purchasing anything else online, with one difference – the firearm is shipped to another Federally licensed firearm dealer (FFL) in your area, rather than your home. If this is your first time purchasing a gun online, here are some very easy steps to follow:
- 1) Find the gun you want, add it to the cart, and go through the checkout process. Ignore the fields asking what FFL dealer you want to use (unless you already know it).
- 3) Call a few dealers in your area and ask what they charge to do a transfer (their “Transfer Fee”). Ask if this includes the background check, or if there’s any additional fees on top of this.
Please Note: The industry average for a transfer fee is about $30, but some states are much higher (looking at you, California). It is in your best interest to call several places until you find a fee you are happy with.
- 4) Once you’ve found a transfer dealer, give us a call or reply to your Order Confirmation e-mail with their name and phone number.
- 5) That’s it! We will take care of the rest.
Do you sell ammo or reloading supplies?
No, at this time I do not stock or sell ammo or reloading supplies.
What about accessories, optics, or holsters?
Not at this time. 99.9% of my business is just guns, and I do not have wholesale access to the accessory end of the market.
Do you take special orders?
I have access to tens of thousands of firearms, and are more than willing to take special orders. Please give me a call at 915-330-9597 and let me know what you are looking for.
Alternately, you can send me a message through the Contact page with a detailed description of what you are looking for, and I will usually reply within 24 hours with availability and prices.
How soon will my order be shipped?
Orders placed usually will be shipped within 3-5 business days after the order has been placed, assuming your dealer is able to quickly send us a copy of their FFL.
How long will my gun take to get here?
We ship all handguns via USPS Priority Mail, normally taking no more than 3 business days to anywhere in the lower 48 states. Long guns are shipped via UPS Ground, and usually take no more than 3 business days as well.
With that in mind, sometimes delays do happen, so please be patient and keep an eye on your tracking number.
Can I purchase a gun on the website and pick it up locally?
Yes you can, just select “Local Pickup” during checkout. Please be aware that we are required to charge TX Sales Tax (8.25%) on any orders picked up locally. We must also perform a background check at the time of pickup unless you have a Texas Concealed Firearm Permit.
Also, please note that handguns may only be picked up locally by Texas residents. If you are not a Texas resident, you may only pick up long guns locally (some restrictions may apply).
I don’t like my gun, can I return it?
The short answer is Yes, with a re-stocking fee, assuming you have not accepted the transfer from your dealer. Please read our Terms and Conditions page for complete return policy.
Why is my shipping $30 when I thought it would only be $15?
A very small amount of our handguns ship in oversize hard cases. Unfortunately, we can’t ship these by the same method as our other handguns, so the shipping price on these is more expensive.
I noticed something wrong with your website, what should I do?
Please tell me through the Contact Us page! We want to know what’s broken.
Do you sell used guns?
Yes, while most of my guns are brand new in box, with full manufacturer warranties, paperwork, etc. I also sell hard to find used guns and they are described as such.
Do you ship to California?
If the firearm is legal where you live, then I will ship there. Including California.
