  • be of legal age to purchase the firearm.

  • Used firearms may be purchased, traded, or taken on consignment at the discretion of the manager.  We charge an 18% consignment fee (minimum charge:  $50 per item).
  • PreOwned, Used, Military and Consignment firearms are sold "As Is", and are not returnable.
  • If you would like to consign one of your firearms, please read our Consignment Agreement (effective 4/28/17).

Background Check:
In order to purchase a firearm, you must complete a Federal background check, aka Form 4473.  This form will be completed once you have selected a firearm, and are ready to make the purchase.  Once you have completed the form, we will submit a background check for you to NICS.  

We will receive one of three responses:  
Proceed: You can purchase the firearm that day
Denied:    You may not purchase the firearm, however, we can provide you with documentation to submit a XXXXX
Delayed:  We cannot transfer the firearm to you until we receive a "Proceed" from NICS.  However, according to Delaware law, once 25 days have passed, without confirmation from NICS, we can then transfer the firearm.  

If you are Delayed, we will hold the firearm for 5 days.  If, after 5 days, we have not received a "Proceed" from NICS, the firearm will be placed back into inventory, to be sold.  If you want us to hold the firearm for you, a 50% deposit must be made on the firearm.  We will then hold the firearm for 30 days from the date you completed the background check.  Background checks expire 30 days after being completed.  Once a background check has expired, you must go through the process again.
 

Transferring of Firearms:
We are always happy to accept transfers on your behalf.  

However, if you are purchasing a firearm that is still being manufactured, please check with us first. We may have the item in stock at the store, or you may be able to purchase it from our online store.  

If you are having a firearm transferred, please keep the following fees in mind:

Person to Person Transfer:  $20 per item (both parties must come into the store to perform the transfer)

Dealer to Local Dealer Transfer:  If we are receiving a firearm from: Targetmaster, Buck's Hunting & Dog Training Supplies, Henry Calvert, and Rod Ellingsworth, the fee is $35.  If we are shipping the item, to those stated above, the fee is $35 plus shipping fees (including insurance).


Dealer to Dealer Transfer:    If we are receiving a transfer for you, from another FFL, the fee is $50. If we are shipping a firearm to another dealer, the cost is $50 plus Shipping Fees (including Insurance)
  • Handguns must be shipped Overnight
  • Long guns can be shipped Ground
  • We only ship Monday thru Wednesday
  • Multiple firearms going to the same FFL holder:  $25 for each additional firearm

No wholesaler to dealer transfers. 

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 federal denial, 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 20% consignment fee and write you a check for the balance.


Military, Law Enforcement and First Responder Discount (Revised 1/23/17):

We sincerely thank our Military and First Responders for all that they do, and all that they risk for our country on a daily basis.  

As an expression of our gratitude, we offer a 5% discount on purchases* made in our store to the following:
        All Active and Retired:
             Military, National Guard and Reserve Personnel
             Law Enforcement Officers
             Fire Fighters, Paramedics and EMTs

To receive the discount, please present the appropriate identification/paperwork when you check out at the register.

The discount is:
  • For your personal use only.
  • Not valid on the purchase of Consignment firearms, Gift Cards, online purchases or with other promotions/sales.
*PLEASE READ:
 
Effective Immediately -- 
The above discount has always been our policy, however, the 5% discount may have been given to those who have served our country, but are not currently active or retired. Unfortunately, at this time, we must return to our original intention of providing this discount only to those who are currently active or retired.

Previously, we would offer you a 5% discount on your purchase, whether you paid cash, credit or debit.  

Due to the rising costs of doing business, we are now only able to offer the 5% discount on purchases made by CASH, DEBIT or Gift Cards.  
You can still use your credit card, however, your discount will now be 3% (instead of 5%).  

We do realize that these changes may cause hardship for some of our customers, and for that we sincerely apologize.  However, due to the rising costs, we feel we must implement these changes.
