Sportsman's Warehouse - Guns purchase terms & conditions

 

It is the customer's responsibility to follow all Federal, State and Local Laws. All firearms MUST be picked up by the BUYER (ACTUAL PURCHASER) at your selected Sportsman's Warehouse store. A valid government issued identification document, or combination of government issued documents, which reflect the buyer's current residential address must be presented at the selected store location prior the completion of any firearm related paperwork and background check initiation. The actual purchaser must be 18 years of age or older to purchase rifles and/or shotguns. The actual purchaser must be 21 years of age or older to purchase handguns and/or firearm receivers, frames or pistol-grip only firearms.

Depending on the selected store location and firearm type, additional identification credentials may be required.

Such transfers are subject to an FFL transfer fee, applicable taxes (if required), background check (if required), background check fee (if any) and waiting period (if any). Firearms will only be transferred in accordance with all Sportsman's Warehouse policies. The FFL transfer fee is $50.00 for non-California locations.

Firearm Buying FAQ's:

What type of identification document will work to pick up my firearm?

A government issued photo identification valid at the time of background check initiation that displays full legal name, date of birth and current residential address (e.g. Driver's License, State Issued Identification Card, Certain State Concealed Handgun Permit, etc.).

The address printed on my driver's license is not correct, what supplemental documentation do I need to bring to pick up my firearm?

If you have updated your address with the government entity (e.g. DMV) that issued it, your driver's license may still be used for identification and date of birth verification purposes only. Another valid government issued document that contains your name and current residential address can be used to supplement your driver's license as proof of current residence (e.g. Vehicle Registration, Voter Identification Card, Concealed Handgun Permit, etc.).

I don't live in the same state as my desired pick-up location; can I still order a firearm online?

Handguns may only be transferred to residents of the state where the transaction is taking place. Under certain and limited circumstances, long-guns my transferred to residents of different states. If you are uncertain, please consult the firearm laws of the state where your desired pick-up store is located as well as your home state, county and city. For your reference, please consult the following publications: ATF Federal Firearms Regulations Reference Guide and ATF State Laws and Published Ordinances - Firearms.

Can I purchase a firearm online using my Sportsman's Warehouse gift card?

Yes.

Are there additional in-store fees associated with the firearm background check?

Yes - Depending on the store location selected for firearm pick-up and final transfer (e.g. CA, CO, NV, OR, TN, UT, VA, etc.), additional state background check fees may apply.

What do I do if I'm unsure I can pass a background check?

Consult with your local authorities and/or private counsel.

What if my background check is denied? Can I have my spouse, relative or another individual pick up the firearm?

No. If your background check is denied, the purchase price will be refunded to the original buyer (a restocking fee may apply) at the selected store location. Another person picking up a firearm on behalf of a prohibited individual is committing a “straw purchase.” This is a very serious federal crime punishable by a fine of up to $250,000.00 and 10 years in prison.
