Coronavirus Protocols

In order to practice "Social Distancing" and to handle the increased customer demand during this time, we have implemented a new waiting list system at our retail stores. We have implemented a text message based waiting list system to replace our traditional take-a-number system. When you arrive at the store you can sign in with your name and mobile number and you will receive a text confirmation and a link to a web page that lets you monitor the waiting list in real time. We are requiring all customers to wait elsewhere and to return to the store when a sales person is available to help them. You will also receive a text message when it is time for you to come in to be helped. We hope this procedure will minimize exposure to the virus and help keep our customers and employees safe.

Because of the time required to serve gun buyers, many which are first time buyers at this time, the wait can be rather lengthy. Please sign into the waiting list as early as possible to minimize your wait time.

Our employees are working very hard and long hours to serve as many customers as possible. We appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.

Temporary Suspension of Ship-In Transfers
We are temporarily suspending our service of performing Firearm Transfers as of 3/22/2020. We are simply maxed out on our capacity and cannot accept any additional transfers at this time. Please do not ship any more transfer firearms to our retail stores until further notice. We will perform the transfer for any firearm we have received prior to 3/22/2020, however you will still need to sign-in to the waiting list in order to get a place in line.


Online Waiting List Sign-in 
You can now join our waiting list online without having to physically come to the store. The waiting list will open every morning and will be closed once we exceed the number of customers we can handle in a single day. You can get on the waiting list to perform any transaction that requires you to come to our store. Please be safe and sign-in from your home or mobile device. THERE IS NO NEED TO COME TO THE STORE AND WAIT IN LINE AS THAT WILL NOT GUARANTEE A PLACE IN LINE.
