Incoming transfers that are considerably over-packed and boxed, and require extra time to unbox and unwrap, will be charged an additional fee of $20, due to the inordinate amount of time required to safely unpack your firearm. This is not a common occurrence and this fee will only be charged when absolutely necessary.

Please note that The State of Colorado charges $10.50 on all background checks. This fee is non-refundable, regardless if you pass or not.

NOTE: Federal Law (CSLA) requires ALL handguns, pistols and revolvers to leave the store with a lock. If you do not have a lock, we have inexpensive locks available for $2.49.


To acquire a firearm via private sale/trade in Colorado, all buyers must pass a background check.

If you are later than 15min, a new appointment will be required. Only 1 transaction is scheduled per appointment.

Customers can complete their fingerprints and photo via the kiosk and the associated app.
