FAQ

What happened to all your guns?
We buy and sell guns – not necessarily always in perfect sync.

Are you going out of business?
God, I hope not!

I found a lower price at another store. Will you match it?
We will attempt to match prices on NEW guns only for identical packages, as long as it is a published, advertised price from a real bona fide store. We will not match prices on hearsay, used guns, expired advertising or from stores that seem to have real good deals on guns they never have in stock.

Can I make a purchase and have it shipped C.O.D.?
We do not ship C.O.D.

Do you finance firearms purchases?
We offer an in-store layaway plan on all guns except for allocated, hard to get, firearms or consignment firearms requiring 30% down and with prior arrangments for paying the balance. If the merchandise is not fully paid for and called for within the scope of the agreed upon arrangements, it will be returned to stock unless modified arrangements are made.
We also offer positive accounts (store credits) where you deposit money into your account until you have a balance sufficient to buy any guy you want.
If neither of these are of interest to you we do have arrangements with a third party financing company. Contact us for details.

May I bring my gun into the store? I want to make sure the (holster/clip/whatever) I need will fit?
Sure: if you don’t point it at us, we won’t shoot you. In fact, if you need a magazine, we’d rather you did bring the gun in.

Do you do trades/trade-ins?
The short answer is Yes.
We will offer you a wholesale price for your gun. If the gun for which you want to trade is priced higher than that, you will need to make up the difference with cash or a credit card.

Do you do appraisals?
Yes; if you don’t need a written copy, we can be downright reasonable about the cost. We normally appraise at retail value. If you then want to sell the gun to us, we will quote its wholesale value.

I need some work done on my gun – can you tell me what it will cost?
In many common cases, yes, we can. In cases of uncommon repairs, we may refer to examples of similar jobs we have done in the past. In ANY event, when we say we are giving an estimate, we are using “estimate” in the generic sense of “calculated or informed guess”: our estimates are not promises, only courtesies. There is a $10 minimum fee to asses weapon if disassembly is required to accurately determine the extent of repairs needed.

Do you have parts?
Yes; we repair a wide variety of problems in a wide variety of guns, and we often have all parts needed on hand; when we don’t, we order them. Parts orders and parts sales that are not connected to work done by us are not possible.

Do you have clips?
Yes, and magazines, too – but only for a limited variety of guns. If you bring us the gun, we may be able to find the magazine that fits. Without the gun, identifying the magazine becomes virtually impossible. Special orders may be possible.

What is the difference between a clip and a magazine?
A clip is different from a magazine and the terms are not interchangeable. Using “clip” when one means “magazine” is like saying “tires” you actually mean “wheels.” Magazine technically refers to a box, drum or tube with a spring inside to help feed the rounds. Most detachable magazines can be removed and replaced with a full one to reload the weapon. The ammo “clip” was introduced by Mannlicher in 1885 and provided a way to charge the magazine in the action. This type of “clip” also forms an integral part of the firearm’s mechanism. If the rounds are not held in the “clip,” the gun cannot proceed through the normal cycle of: Chamber, Fire, Extract, Eject. Using the terms interchangeably marks the speaker as a hopeless newbie.

Do you sell knives or other cutlery?
YES, a limited selection. Mostly Military or Boy Scout oriented.

Do you set up at any of the gun shows?
No, not a the present time.

Do you sell hunting and fishing licenses?
Sorry, no, not at the moment. Check back because it is on our to-do list.

Do you sell police duty gear?
Nope. Sorry.

Do you sell or service archery equipment?
None at all.

Why do I need a gun? I got a baseball bat, a taser and I take karate?
Statistically speaking, you probably won’t ever need a gun. But you came to us? Seriously, if you’re attacked by someone who doesn’t care if you live or die – do you really want to get inside knife or taser-range? Of course, if your attacker isn’t trying to kill you, a gun will only get you into trouble.

Are you hiring?
We’ll be happy to look at your resume, but keep in mind…
…we don’t pay relocation.
…we have no training program,
…we’re all on straight salary, and
…did I mention the economy?.
