CONDITIONS OF USE
If you visit or shop at any website owned or operated by Foster Firearms, you agree to and accept these conditions. Please read them carefully.
We observe all State and Federal Laws regarding gun sales, shipping, selling to FFL dealers, and anything else we need to observe.
USED GUN WARNING
A purchaser of a used gun knowingly acknowledges that used guns could have a problem and cause injury or even death. We can not guarantee that used guns purchased from Foster Firearms will not have these kinds of problems. By reading this and purchasing the used guns, you waive any right to hold Foster Firearms responsible for damages.
SALES BETWEEN INDIVIDUALS
We will not ship guns to individuals without an FFL. See below for more information on how to purchase a gun and get it sent to your local dealer. If you are a dealer, please contact us and we will work out the details.
Federal law allows the sale of a long gun or a handgun between private parties of the same state as long as the purchaser is 18 years of age. An individual who does not possess a federal firearms license may not sell a modern firearm to a resident of another state without first transferring the firearm to a dealer in the purchaser’s state. Firearms received by bequest or interstate succession are exempt from those sections of the law which forbid the transfer, sale, delivery or transportation of firearms into a state other than the transferor’s state of residence. Likewise, antique firearms are exempt from these sections of the law in most states. (Antique firearms are defined as those manufactured pre-1899 by US federal law, or modern replicas thereof that do not use cartridges. State law definitions on antique firearms vary considerably from state to state.)

In an effort to continually provide our customers with the most current pricing and inventory status, we reserve the right to “refresh” or update any bookmarked content when the customer returns to the page containing said content. This policy more specifically applies to the ‘shopping cart’ feature of our websites. Some customers choose to place one or more items into the shopping cart on our website and then either bookmark the “View Cart” page within their Internet browser or navigate away from our website and return at a later time. Items placed into the shopping cart are stored there for 30 days as a convenience to our customers. Prices are subject to change at anytime. As such, when a customer returns to the shopping cart, via a bookmark or otherwise, we will display the most current pricing and pertinent item information.

Items in your Shopping Cart will always reflect the most recent price displayed on the item’s product detail page. Please note that this price may differ from the price shown for the item when you first placed it in your cart. Placing an item in your cart does not reserve the price shown at that time. It is also possible that an item’s price may decrease between the time you place it in your cart and the time you purchase it. Some discounts are limited-time offers. Also, as the discount we are able to offer for any item is dependent upon its availability, Foster Firearms and its affiliate’s price will necessarily change on occasion.

A firearm CANNOT be returned if it has left the FFL dealer; if there is a problem with the firearm after you’ve left the dealer, you will need to contact the manufacturer directly.
Before you proceed with the transfer, make certain that you inspect the firearm thoroughly, to ensure that it is the correct item and free of defects.
If you leave the FFL dealer with the firearm and there are defects, you will have to contact the manufacturer directly.
We do NOT reimburse FFL transfer fees for any reason. You are responsible for any contract/negotiation with your FFL dealer.
If your paperwork or background check is denied, you must pay return shipping back to Foster Firearms.
There is a 25% restocking fee on returns of all firearms, once a return has been authorized.
Please note that when you place an order for a firearm, it is solely your responsibility to contact your chosen FFL dealer (before shipment occurs!) to ensure that they are willing and able to accept the transfer on your behalf. You are also responsible for ensuring the firearm is legal to own in your area.

Foster Firearms reserves the right to refuse, delay, or cancel any order, at any time, for any reason.

Foster Firearms is not responsible for shipping delays as a result of weather or other events beyond our control (such as holiday shipping rushes, etc.). Foster Firearms is unable to guarantee delivery of an order by a certain date or time. Please note that errors or omissions in the Shipping Address supplied to Foster Firearms may result in shipping delays and Foster Firearms is not responsible for such errors or the resulting delays that may occur.
Discounts will be stated and will be reflected in the price of the item.
You are responsible for knowing the laws in your own state, county, city, etc. If you have any questions, contact your local FFL dealer 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)
Your credit card account may reflect an authorization for the amount of your purchase after your order has been placed. An authorization ensures the validity of your card. The actual charge will not appear on your statement until your order is ready to ship from our warehouse.
If you order using a debit/check card, the authorization will put a hold or freeze on that amount until your card is actually charged. If you have any questions regarding authorizations or charges, please contact the institution that issued your credit/debit card.
