Firearm Shipment Policy

All Firearm shipments will be sent to an FFL. It is the Buyers responsibility to ensure that an FFL license copy is sent to us for transfer. We reserve the right to cancel firearm orders when a customer fails to provide a Federal Firearms License (FFL) from their firearm transfer dealer. Reasonable attempts will be made to contact customers for their FFL when firearms are ready to be shipped. Golden State Tactical reserves the right to decide what constitutes a reasonable attempt. Customers have up to 7 business days (M-F) to provide an FFL, from the time that the firearm is in-stock and ready to be shipped. This 7 business day time frame requirement may be shorter/longer for specific promotions as advertised. Canceled firearm orders will be subject to a cancellation fee of up to 25%.

BUYER'S RESPONSIBILITIES

You are responsible for knowing the laws in your own state, county, city, etc.. BEFORE placing an order, you must ensure that your purchase is legal in your area. If you have any questions, contact your local FFL dealer or law enforcement agency before you order. (Example: Maryland requires fired casings with the purchase of any new firearm-so if you order a firearm for the state of Maryland, be certain it has fired casings. Another example is California which requires that a handgun be on the Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale). Should a firearm need to be returned because it is illegal in your area, a restocking fee will apply in addition to shipping charges. See "Return Policy-Restocking Fees".

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR INSPECTING YOUR FIREARM UPON ARRIVAL, PRIOR TO LEAVING THE FFL DEALER. DO NOT TAKE THE FIREARM FROM THE FFL TRANSFER DEALER IF THERE IS ANY ISSUE WITH THE FIREARM. ONCE THE FIREARM LEAVES THE TRANSFER DEALER, GOLDEN STATE TACTICAL IS NO LONGER RESPONSIBLE OR REQUIRED TO REMEDY ANY ISSUE YOU HAVE WITH THE FIREARM. FIREARMS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR RETURN IF THEY HAVE LEFT THE DEALER.
