o Please ensure the item you are bidding on is legal in your locality before bidding! If you do not know if the item is legal, please check with your transfer dealer prior to bidding.

o Items that are returned due to a refused or missed delivery or an item not being legal in your locality are subject to a restocking fee of 20 percent of the actual price of the item. Shipping charges will not be refunded.

  • Shipping and Handling

o Shipping of any serialized item requiring a background check will be to FFL only. It is the responsibility of the buyer to contact their dealer to have a copy of a signed, legible FFL provided to us. Selecting a dealer that is listed on the GB site does not negate or by-pass that requirement. When sending an FFL, please be sure to include the auction number and buyer’s name. FFLs received without both of these will not be processed until that information is provided. Your dealer’s FFL will be sent to us and we will forward it with your order to the fulfillment center. The fulfillment center will include a copy of their FFL with the item.

o There is a shipping estimator in the listing that will provide the price of shipping.

o We strive to have items processed within three business days of receiving payment and your dealer’s FFL, however it may take up to seven business days for an item to ship due to item location, work load, personnel availability, etc.

o Please note that handgun shipping via “2nd Day Air” is the shipping method required by some carriers. This does not mean that you will receive an item within 2 days from the date of purchase.

o Shipping costs are per auction and cannot be combined.

o Overnight delivery orders will be delivered the next business day. In other words, if it goes out on a Friday, the order will be delivered on Monday, not Saturday.

If not, the transaction may come back as “failed” or “declined”, and if this occurs twice you are locked out of the checkout function until you contact us so we can provide a re-set for your item. Additionally, if payment is declined you may have a hold on the funds and/or show a pending charge that will not lift for 3-5 business days when the decline hold is lifted by your bank or financial institution.

  • Sales Tax

o Sales tax is assessed on all sales to the listed states. If you are a business with a sales tax number/account for resale in a listed state, you will need to provide documentation in order to have sales tax refunded.
