You found the best price on guns and ammo - now what?
You want to make sure you get it on time and on budget. That is our commitment to you.
Some products are subject to shipping restrictions based on your local laws and regulations. Since members of law enforcement and/or other agencies are often allowed to purchase products prohibited for regular civilians - you may be able to add a certain product to the cart and checkout. Our customer service team will contact you for a copy of your LE/other credentials. If you place an order by mistake or may not be aware of your local restrictions, we will explain them to you when we cancel the order. We do our best in keeping up with this information, but ultimate compliance is up to you.
There are several other important issues concerning shipping that we want to make sure you are aware of:

ATTENTION – California Customers
1800GunsAndAmmo may still ship ammunition orders to California but the process has changed to comply with California Proposition 63. All ammo purchased online going to California must now ship to an FFL or California-approved ammunition dealer. After placing your order, a 1800GunsAndAmmo customer service representative will contact you to ensure your ammunition arrives quickly and in compliance with the law.
Selection of Shipping Carriers
While you may see FedEx, UPS or USPS logos or selection options during checkout, we reserve all rights to select/change the best carrier to deliver the order to the final destination. This change will not affect the cost of delivery.
Rerouting of Shipments
If you need to change the ship-to address of the order after it is placed, you will need to contact us. It may not always be possible to do and we reserve full rights not to change the ship to address if the order does not pass necessary fraud verification steps on our end. If the order is undeliverable due to change of address, you will be responsible for all extra fees and transportation costs associated with the return of the product to us. They may be deducted from the refund on the order.
We are not responsible for any weather related delays or other acts of God.
