Let's start by getting the first question out of the way...Yes we charge shipping. Shipping is never free. If you don't pay them they don't move it. We are happy to add it to the cost of the product, but at the end of the day you are still going to pay it. Estimated shipping cost for a handgun is $20 to $25. Estiamated shipping cost for a long gun is $25 to $35. These are only estimated costs.
We will ship all firearms via UPS when applicable. All of these items have to ship to a licensed dealer. Before we can ship, we need to have the information for the dealer that will be accepting the shipment in order to verify their license status
All accessories, optics, magazines, targets, etc. can be shipped directly to the customer. Please remember that there are some magazines and accessories that may not be legal in your state. We do require that the billing and shipping address be the same. We will look at any exceptions on a case by case basis.
Any firearms that we receive for DuraCoat refinishing, will require that when we return the shipment, it will be shipped back to the original owner at the original address. It we be shipped via UPS 2nd and will require the signature of someone at least 21 years of age.
Unless a shipment is incorrect, returns will be at the customer's expense. Depending on the reason for the return, it may be subject to a 15% restocking fee. When we send a firearm to a dealer we will include return shipping labels in case you do not pass the background check or if there is some other reason that will not allow you to take ownership of the firearm. If the return shipping labels are needed, they will be at the customer's expense.
