Prices on this website are subject to change without notice. We are human, and due to the sheer volume of items we carry, errors do occur. We cannot be held responsible for typographical or price errors shown on this website. We apologize in advance.

Information about orders

Orders are typically shipped within 24 hours of receipt during business days. Please double check the part number and description. Most of our returns are due to mixed up part numbers. Due to our automated system, orders cannot be changed once they are placed. Online orders may be paid for with MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express or a check card. We also accept debit cards.

Do you charge tax?

Since Supreme Court ruling South Dakota v. Wayfair decision, we may be required to collect sales tax on out of state sales. You may or may not be required to pay sales tax based on where you live. When you get to the checkout screen, it will tell you whether tax is owed for your order. Dealer, government, and non-profit customers must provide a copy of their tax certificate to avoid these charges. International customers may have export taxes or customs duties added to their orders.

Can I special order?

We will gladly try to fill special orders from any of the companies whose products we sell. The customer must provide the manufacturers stock number for the item desired. The minimum amount for a special order is $100.00. All special orders must be prepaid. No refunds, returns or exchanges are allowed on special order items.

Can I come shop and pick up orders?

We do not have a store or showroom. Orders placed in advance may be picked up to avoid shipping charges. All pickup orders will be charged Tennessee state sales tax unless we have your tax certificate on file.

Licenses and regulations

Export licenses for international orders are required in order to send firearms or ammunition components. To obtain an export license we need the following items: An order for the goods desired, and an import permit for these items or a letter from the government of the destination country stating no license is required. You may be required by the U.S. Department of State to obtain the license for additional items. We suggest large orders which can be broken into smaller shipments since a license is good for 48 months or until all goods have been shipped, whichever comes first.

What is my credit card's ID number?

The three-digit verification code is located on the back or front of Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express credit cards. It is located on the front of American Express credit cards. It serves as an additional security device against fraudulent activity. Providing this code will help us speed up the processing of your order in most cases.

Are there any required forms or paperwork?

Currently, if you reside in Massachusetts, we require that you fill out the Letter of Intent (PDF) and email it to or fax it to us at 931-503-8037. We also need a copy of your license to carry per Massachusetts law.

This means that we will have to limit the amount of actual weight of Hazardous Materials to 40lbs per HazMat box to ensure that there is enough of a buffer to meet the overpacking requirement by UPS and FedEx. ) If your order must go in more than one box an additional hazardous materials charge of $22.00 may be charged.

About Purchase Limits Click To View

About Limits

You as a shooter or reloader have become fully aware of the shortage and demand that Covid, Riots, Elections, Gun Legislation, new gun owners as a result of all of these situations and now the “Entrepreneurial Opportunists” have placed on the shooting industry and supplies. In an effort to supply as many customers across the board as we possibly can, we are having to go to extra lengths to ensure that all customers are offered the opportunity to get these supplies. In order to make sure that you are able to get some of our very limited inventory, we are placing limits on all customers to ensure that not only a small portion of customers are continually getting the bulk of it. These limits change according to our current inventory and what we have received to sell. Some limits may go according to the specific item, some limits may cover a specific category (like ammunition or smokeless powder*) some may cover a time frame for that product or category and some limits may include all of the above. We know that this is confusing and an inconvenience, but we also know that this is the only way that we can accommodate more of you to keep you loading and shooting.

*Note – It may be in your best interest to not buy a maximum limit of a particular product now as a knee jerk reaction, because the product that you really want may become available later and your limit may prevent you from now getting it. (For instance: “I bought 30 lbs of ACME Boom Lite, and now Varget is available and I can’t get any”.)

About Circumventing Limits

About Circumventing Limits – We are fully aware that customers are creating multiple accounts under variations of their own name, wife’s name, neighbor, cousin, mom…etc. We ask that you please don’t do this. If we suspect that an account was created to circumvent these limits, we are deleting the orders. Period. As a company, we do not have the time and resources to devote to the high volume of accounts that have received products by developing ways around the basic, unsophisticated limits that we originally put in place. We are asking you, our customer to help us help other shooters as well.
