Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to purchase a firearm?

A clean background history, PA driver's License, and payment. You must be 18 to purchase a long gun and 21 to purchase a handgun.

Can I just stop in?

No, we work by appointment. Please call or email to set up a day/time.

Can I buy a gun if I live out of state?

Not a handgun. However we can ship a handgun to a dealer near your home for transfer. Long guns can be purchased from us in many cases to out of state buyers. It depends on your state of residence.

I'm not sure if I can pass the background check. Can I try?

Please don't come in and "try". Please talk to a lawyer or run a background check on yourself at the PSP website. If you are denied because of your background check, you will be charged with falsifying information on the forms and it will cost you a lot of money.

I live in another part of the country (not PA). Do you ship guns?

Yes, we do. We can arrange payment plus shipping costs. Once payment clears, we will ship out and send you a tracking number. All guns must be shipped to a licensed FFL dealer.

Do you do internet transfers?

Yes, but please read this page for more information and contact us if you have any questions.

Do you purchase guns and/or accept trades?

Yes, we do - depending on the model and condition.

Can I take a class if I have a record?

If you cannot pass an ATF form 4473, you cannot take one of our classes.
