As an FFL holder, we are required to do FBI background checks (NICS check). As accordance to the law, all firearms that leave the premisis are subject to this check. However, we reserve the right to do NICS checks on blackpowders or C&R’s as we see fit.



All transfers coming in from another dealer have to have an FFL. We do not accept incoming transfers from individuals. We require all outgoing transfers to have a copy of person’s valid drivers license at the time of transfer.

Person to Person Transfers: The NICS check will be done, first. Once we receive a “proceed”, we will log it into our books.


Person to Person – $10

Incoming with gun lock – $10

Incoming without gun lock – $15

Outgoing – $20 + shipping

In order for an individual to put an item on consignment we need a valid of your drivers license. The individual names the price they want out of it and we add 20% on that. We do not guarantee sale of firearm. Once price is established we draw up a break down of price and gun information that will be dated and signed by both consignee and employee who drew up the breakdown. If, after a time of NO SALES, the consignee must fill out a NICS check to get it back *See Buy*. If it has sold, we contact the consignee. Once paid, the consignee and the employee sign the original break down document as a signed receipt. Shop keeps original document while consignee gets a copy.


Call us to make an appointment in which someone can be in the shop to evaluate trades or sales.
