    • Multiple firearms going to the same FFL holder:  Price TBD 
  • Dealer to Dealer Transfer:  $15 per item
  • Please check with us prior to purchasing a firearm from an out-of-state dealer.  We may be able to obtain the firearm, saving you money, as you will not incur transfer and shipping/handling fees.
  • If you have a firearm transferred for us to handle your paperwork and then you fail to pick it up, storage fees will apply after the firearm has been in our possession for a 2 week period.  The storage fee will be $25 per month until the firearm paperwork is completed and the item taken into your possession.  If the storage fee exceeds the value of the firearm, the firearm will be sold and any funds gathered during the sale will be utilized to cover the storage fee.  If a firearm has to be returned to the seller, the charge will be $65 per item..


If you have a firearm transferred to us and you are Denied:

  • When a firearm is transferred to our store, the buyer is responsible for payment of the transfer fee.  If the transfer cannot be completed (because of a background check, etc), the buyer is still responsible to pay the transfer fee.  
  • It is your responsibility to let us know how you would like to handle the firearm.  Your options:
    • Send it back to where you purchased it from (handling/shipping fees will apply).  You must contact the seller to discuss their return policy.
    • Put it on consignment at our store
    • Ask if we are interested in purchasing the firearm from you
  • We will not transfer the gun to a friend/relative, as that would be considered a straw purchase.
  • If you do not make arrangements within 6 months of the denial date, we will place the firearm for sale on a consignment basis.  The firearm will be classified as Pre-Owned/Unfired for a new gun and Pre-Owned for a used gun and priced at our manager's discretion.  Once the firearm is sold, we will deduct a 25% consignment fee and write you a check for the balance.

  • A 20% deposit may be required when placing a special order for a firearm at the discretion of store management.
  • No refunds on special orders.

Placing a firearm on "HOLD":

  • If you see a firearm on our web site, you may call the store and ask that we put it on "HOLD" for you.  If we can hold the item, we will hold the item until the end of that business day or other as agreed upon, so that you can stop in and inspect the firearm. You may then purchase the firearm, or put it on layaway for 30 days (with a 25% deposit) - (Exception: Consignment firearms may not be put on layaway)
