Shipping: The shipping charge will be listed in each description. It is $30 for most guns. Some heavy guns or those insured for over $2000 may be higher. Shipments to Alaska and Hawaii are higher because air shipment is required. Most firearms are shipped within 5 days of receipt of payment. We prefer shipping at the beginning of the week to avoid firearms in transit over weekends.
We package all shipments carefully and insure them for the full purchase price, rounded up to the next $100. In the unlikely event that damage occurs, it is important that you save all packaging material for the claims process. Optics are shipped Priority Mail and most other non-firearm shipments are shipped First Class.
Returns: Our return policy is simple. If for any reason you are not pleased with your purchase, you may return your item for a refund. The only exception is ammunition, it cannot be returned. It is important to us that you are happy. Grading and describing used firearms is subjective and especially with collector quality guns, different people have different expectations. Any time you buy a gun without seeing it in person, you should have the option of returning it. You will always have that option at Shooting Investments. Guns cannot be fired or dissembled before returning them and must be returned in the same condition as received. Notification of a return must occur with-in 3 days of receipt at your dealer. Shipping, convenience and dealer fees are not refundable and are the responsibility of the buyer.
Lay-a-way: If needed, we offer a 60 day lay-a-way option on most firearms. It is 1/3 now, 1/3 in 30 days and 1/3 in 60 days. Lay-a-way firearm sales are final.
Consigning your firearms with Shooting Investments: We will help you get top dollar for your firearms. While most local guns shops charge 20% or more, our fee is only 10% with a minimum of $50. At your local gun shop it might take months to sell. Selling on-line provides instant access to thousands of interested buyers.
You won’t find any other on-line dealer willing to sell your firearms for only 10% or listing every gun on 4 separate websites. Selling through an Auction House typically costs 15% and you have to wait several months to sell and longer to receive funds. If properly priced, we will sell your firearms in a week or two. Send us an email or give us a call and we’ll explain how easy it is for you to get top dollar.
Trading: We collect guns and usually just trade for guns we want to add to our collections. We often sell guns for others wanting to purchase one of ours. We find this the most fair to both of us. Our Commission is only 10% and we hold the gun you want until yours sells. Please contact us if you want to sell one of yours to buy one of ours.
Help for California Buyers: We are happy to ship to California. It is the buyer’s responsibility to make sure any item you buy is legal in your state.
Trades Accepted: No

Many people have asked me over the years to sell guns for them. I’ve decide I will start helping you get the most for your firearms. Most dealers charge 15% or more to consign a gun and in a gun shop it might take months to sell. Selling on-line provides instance access to thousands of buyers. If it is properly priced, it will sell in a week or two.
The key to getting the most for your gun is to take good pictures of it after being cleaned, and providing an honest description.
