When do we ship?
Orders placed with Standard Shipping are currently estimated to ship within 5-7 business days from the time the order was placed. Our estimated shipping time is based on several factors, including the type of product you have ordered, our current order volume, and how quickly we can obtain and assemble items for shipment. Orders for multiple items can sometimes take longer to assemble before we are able to ship, and may be shipped in multiple packages.
The ship time for firearms is also dependent on whether or not we have the receiving dealer’s Federal Firearms License (FFL) on file, or if we need to obtain that from them. Shipments are processed Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET.
Orders placed after 2 p.m. ET for Select or Express Shipping may not be processed until the next business day.
Where do we ship to?
Anywhere in the continental United States, additional shipping charges may apply for Alaska and Hawaii. We do not currently offer shipping outside of the United States. Some restrictions may apply.
How do we ship?
We ship most merchandise purchased via (UPS, USPS) Federal Express. After FedEx receives the merchandise, the carrier assumes all risk and liability. Bulk or heavy weight orders may be delivered by freight.
Signature Required and Failed Delivery Attempts
Packages that contain $350 or more of merchandise may require a signature; otherwise, it is generally up to the driver’s discretion to determine whether a signature is required. All packages containing a firearm will always require an adult signature. After three delivery attempts, the package will be returned to us.
