State Firearms Laws

revised 1/17/14

Firearm Cancellation Fee - Any firearm purchased on our website and then canceled will incur a 10% cancellation fee. We work hard to get the proper paperwork ready to ship your firearm and we start this process once the order is placed to speed the process of getting the firearm shipped to you.  Any firearm that is canceled before it ships requires this process to be reversed, therefore we must charge a fee to cancel any firearm.

NOTE: Firearm laws are subject to frequent changes. This information is not intended as legal advice. This summary does not include federal or local laws, ordinances or regulations. You are responsible for knowing the laws in your area. If you have any question or doubt about the laws in your jurisdiction, we advise you speak with an attorney.
