How to Buy a Firearm
Ordering a firearm from us is simple and easy. It can be done in 4 easy steps.
1. Select your firearm from our extensive selection of in-stock firearms. Our website inventory is live. If it shows in stock, then you can order it.
2. Verify the firearm can ship to you. Type in your zip code to see if the firearm you have selected complies with your state and local laws. If so, then add it to your cart and start the checkout process.
3. Choose your FFL. We have an extensive network of pre-approved dealers in most cities who are ready to be the final stop in your firearm purchase. Our FFL selection page will show you dealers closest to you. Pick the one you want to use. If they are on the list.. then we have everything we need to ship them your firearm. If you want to use a dealer not on our approved network... just type in their shipping information manually during checkout.
4. Your gun will arrive at your dealer in a few days. As soon as you finish the checkout process we will get to work shipping your order. We will email you and your dealer tracking information when your order ships. Once it arrives your dealer will contact you to come in and complete your background check so you can take home your new firearm.
It is that simple!
