What are your shipping fees?


We use USPS Priority Mail at a rate of $9.00 and FedEx Express at a rate of $14.00.  FedEx Express Overnight rate is determined at checkout and is based on your location.  Please note FedEx overnight is not available in all areas, therefore if your order is placed for overnight shipping and it does not calculate when you checkout, then FedEx overnight is not available in your area.

We use FedEx Express 2-Day to ship all firearms.  FedEx firearm shipment policy states the firearm must ship to an FFL holder.   FedEx Express shipping rates are based on your location and range from $40.00 to $60.00.  There are no discounts on multiple firearm shipments.  An adult signature is required for all firearm shipments.  Beginning June 28, 2022, FedEx Express will enable ID scanning functionality for deliveries of Adult Signature Required (ASR) packages in the U.S. Please have your valid government-issued photo ID ready at the time of delivery.  ID scanning electronically captures the recipient’s first initial and last name and automatically verifies that age requirements are met for shipments requiring an adult signature at delivery.  The software does not record or store any other personal data (e.g., driver’s license number, birthday, home address, etc.).  All firearm shipments are insured.

Shipping rates are subject to change without notice.
