The GunOutlet offers a wide variety of firearms and accessories. Use our search tool or category headings to find and select the items you are interested in.  In-Stock items may be added directly to your cart for purchase.  Items not in stock may be added to your Waitlist and we will notify you via email when the item returns to stock.

Use our secure cart check-out system to complete the purchase of your items.  During check-out you will be required to provide a Bill-To and Ship-To address, along with your payment information.  Use YOUR billing and shipping information, just like any other on-line shopping site.

All firearms must be shipped to a Licensed Firearms Dealer for transfer into your possession – we can not ship firearms directly to your address.  Use our FFL Locator to help find a Licensed Firearms Dealer near you.

Make contact with the Dealer to confirm that the transfer is compliant with Federal, State and Local Laws and that the chosen dealer will assist the transfer.  Be advised that each Licensed Firearms Dealer may charge a fee for providing you the Transfer Service.

Your chosen Dealer will need to provide a copy of their Firearms License to us before we ship your firearm purchase to them.  We accept licenses via EMAIL or FAX – please make sure that they reference your name and YOUR Order Number on the FFL.

EMAIL:  ffl@thegunoutlet.com
FAX:    7195285598

When your purchase has been fully paid and after we have received your Dealer’s license, we will ship the firearm directly to your Dealer.  Work with your selected FFL dealer to arrange for the transfer of your purchase into your possession. The transfer process will include the completion of various documents and a background check to verify that you can legally take possession of the firearm.

You should closely inspect the gun and verify the make, model, caliber/gauge and condition matches with what you ordered before any paperwork is filled out. If there is an issue with the gun please contact The GunOutlet customer service at (719) 528-6301

If you selected a dealer in California: California dealers must also include their CA firearms dealer (CFD) number on their license. Review CA State restrictions for firearms at http://certguns.doj.ca.gov/.
