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 within a month, storage fees will apply after the firearm has been in our possession for 1 month. The storage fee will be $20 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 may be sold and any funds gathered during the sale will be utilized to cover the storage fee. If a gun is not picked up within 6 months of its arrival, the gun will be considered abandoned and will become property of Black Dog Sporting Goods. Once the item is considered abandoned, it will be sold as property of Black Dog Sporting Goods and all funds from the sale will belong to Black Dog Sporting Goods.
If a firearm has to be returned to the seller for any reason, the charge will be $50 plus shipping charges per item, to be paid prior to shipping.
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 automatically place the firearm for sale on a consignment basis. The firearm will be classified as Pre-Owned/Un-fired for a new gun and Pre-Owned for a used gun and priced at our discretion. Once the firearm is sold, we will deduct a 25% consignment fee and write you a check for the balance.
If you do not agree with any of these policies, do not send a firearm to Black Dog Sporting Goods for a transfer.
A deposit may be required when placing a special order for a firearm at the discretion of store management.
There are no refunds on special order deposits.
We DO NOT offer layaway
All sales are final.
Returned Check Fee:
A 10% fee will be incurred when a bank returns a check to us due to non-payment.
If the payment is not delivered to us in cash immediately, we will have no choice other than to allow law enforcement to handle the issue. If the check is over $500 they will charge the fraudulent customer with a Class II Felony. The State Police will also be involved and will seize the firearm and charge the fraudulent customer with theft of a firearm.
