Firearms Purchasing Policy
Firearms can not be purchased by out-of-state residents unless the transaction is handled by a Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder. Georgia residents must make in-store purchases unless arrangements are made to ship to a qualified Federal Firearms License holder.
If you are from outside the state of Georgia and are interested in making a purchase, you will need to provide the name, address and phone number of an authorized dealer in your home state. That dealer will need to mail or fax or email me a current signed copy of their Federal Firearms License (FFL) before the firearm can be shipped. Once your payment is received along with the proper FFL, i will then ship the firearm to your local dealer, whom will then take care of all the necessary paperwork, usually for a small handling fee.
If you are interested in purchasing one of the firearms listed, please make arrangements with a local FFL holder, then call me at 706-244-0110 to make the necessary arrangements.
Note to Georgia
residents : I am a licensed FFL dealer so any gun to be sold must
be picked up at my shop in Eastanollee,Ga. to do the paperwork or I can ship to
an FFL dealer of your choice near your location.
