Before You Make A Firearm Purchase Online

There are a few things you should be aware of before you purchase a firearm online from Casual Tactical:

• We cannot ship firearms outside of the United States.
• We cannot ship a firearm directly to you, but we can ship it to your favorite local FFL dealer.
• We do not contact or arrange transfers with FFL dealers. It is your responsibility to find and contact the FFL dealer you want us to transfer your firearm to, and coordinate communication for the transfer. Click here for more FFL information.
• Though you are purchasing the firearm from Casual Tactical, it is the responsibility of your local FFL dealer to process the paperwork and run a background check. There may be additional fees, charged by your local FFL dealer, for these services.
• Not all firearms can be shipped to all states. It is your responsibility to make sure the firearm you are purchasing is legal in your state/county/city. We recommend you do this before placing your order with Casual Tactical to avoid a possible cancellation fee. Your local FFL dealer should be able to help you with this.
• Not all gun magazines can be shipped to all states. If you order a firearm with a magazine that is not legal in your state, the firearm will be shipped without a magazine. No substitutions or customizations will be made. It is your responsibility to make sure the magazine that comes with the firearm you are purchasing is legal in your state/county/city. Check out our restricted items page for more details. We recommend you do this before placing your order with Casual Tactical to avoid a possible cancellation fee. Your local FFL dealer should be able to help you with this.
• All firearm shipments require a signature to verify delivery. So please be sure you have chosen an FFL dealer who is available to sign for packages during regular business hours.
• All firearm sales are final. Once a transfer is complete no return or cancellation can be made.

Ordering Your Firearm Online

To place an order for a firearm simply find the firearm in our online catalog and, if it is available for purchase, add it to your shopping cart. Once you have done this you can proceed with checkout. If you have more shopping to do, you may do that before completing the checkout process.

If you continue shopping so that your order has more than just a firearm on it, that is no problem. Your unregulated (non-firearm) items will be shipped to your billing address, while your firearm will be shipped to the FFL dealer address you provide.

Please note that phone orders are not accepted.

FFL Information

All firearm purchases must be shipped to an FFL dealer to facilitate the transfer of the firearm into your name. We will not arrange transfers for you, you must find your own FFL dealer. Finding an FFL dealer can be simple. Anyone legally registered to sell firearms should have an FFL license; this includes: gun stores, gunsmiths, pawn shops, and shooting ranges. Many of these can be found in your local Yellow Pages. Even more convenient is the site, FFLregistry.com, which lets you search online by local area for FFL dealers. Casual Tactical does not endorse or recommend specific FFL dealers. You should find someone in your area you feel comfortable working with, but there are a few things to keep in mind when doing a transfer with your local FFL dealer:

• Your FFL dealer will be required to do a background check on you before transferring the firearm to you. Having a CCW or concealed carry permit may help this process along. If you have one make sure that your FFL dealer knows that. The cost for this background check is usually included in the transfer fees.
• Transfer fees will vary dealer to dealer. We suggest you shop around. This fee is usually between $25-$50.
• Your FFL dealer will only transfer firearms to you that are legal for you to own. So let your FFL dealer know before your purchase what kind of firearm you want to get. They will be able to let you know if it is legal for you to have the firearm you want. This is why we strongly recommend you find an FFL dealer and discuss the transfer with them BEFORE placing your order with Casual Tactical.
• Your FFL dealer will only transfer your firearm to you, the purchaser. You must be the person for whom the background check is run, you must be present at the transfer, and you must be the one filling out the paperwork (form 4473). It is a federal offense to pay for your firearm under one name and have it shipped for another person. This is called a straw purchase.

It is important that your FFL dealer contact us within 7 business days of your order placement. They will need to send us their FFL dealer credentials ALONG WITH your name and order number. If we do not receive this information is 7 business days your firearm purchase will be canceled (cancellation fees may apply). Your FFL dealer should email (guns@casualtactical.com) their FFL credentials and your order information to us.
