FAQ

Q: Is it legal to buy firearms online?

A: Yes, purchasing firearms online is 100% legal.

 

Q: What is required to purchase firearms online?

A: Most importantly, To know your local laws...and to know what items are legal to own in your state/county/city! Not sure? Click HERE, find your State and follow the link! Or for more specific answers call your local Police Dept. Once a buyer is sure of their laws then proceed with the steps below!

1. (Pre-Purchase) The buyer must find a Licensed Dealer and ask if they are willing to handle a transfer of an online firearms purchase. Click HERE to search for a dealer by zip code. Often dealers charge transfer fees to handle these types of transactions...most fees range from $15-40, this is normal. Fees based on the percentage of your purchase are often very excessive and in our opinion not the best option. Talkin' Guns often handles transfers like this locally in Billings MT...our fee is $15 on any item. It's important to find a dealer that is helpful, respectful and someone you feel comfortable working with!

2. (Purchase) Once a Licensed dealer agrees to handle the transfer then its time to purchase the item. Simply place the firearm(s) in your cart and proceed to our one page online checkout! ***Never pay the transferring dealer to purchase the firearm, they only receive the agreed upon fee at the time of transfer! The payment goes to the actual seller of the item!***

3. (Post Purchase) Once the item is paid for, have the transferring dealer email, fax or mail a clear & legible copy of their license to us for our records.  Once we receive a copy of the receiving FFL's license only then can we ship your new firearm. When the new firearm reaches the transferring dealer, make arrangements to pick it up. ***All FFL dealers are required by law to perform a background check on all transfers***

 

Q: Why become a member of Talkinguns.com? 

A: Most sign up for the raffle/bonus rewards program. Other than the cost of the membership there is no obligation to buy anything, and every month you'll receive raffle/bonus tokens to enter for your chance to win amazing prizes like new firearms & accessories!

 

Q: Do I have to be a paying member to purchase items from the online store? 

A: No, but it is required to create a free account so our shopping system can process your order with all of your correct information and so Talkin' Guns can contact you about your order if the need arises.

 

Q: How does the raffle/bonus program work?

A: This perk is only for active members. This rewards program is essentially a raffle for our members. Each membership renewal grants a certain number of raffle/bonus tokens to that member based on the level of membership they selected. Members must go to our Rewards section and enter their tokens on the current items they choose. Members can enter their tokens however they'd like...spread them out evenly to all of the current items or place all of their available tokens towards their favorite item!

 

Q: What are the odds of winning an item?

A: Odds vary depending on what price range the item is and how many tokens the member chooses to place towards each item. Each item has a specific number of required entries before a winner is drawn....the most being 22,500 ($2001-$3000 Items), and the least being 190 ($1-$25 Items). So as an example, a $9.99/mo. BASIC Member who receives 25 monthly tokens can place all 25 towards our most common item category (value of $751-$1000) and would have 1:300 chances of winning that item! If that particular item was still available when the member receives their next monthly allotment they could enter that month's 25 tokens toward that item as well, and would then have 1:150 chances of winning that item!

 

Q: How are winners selected?

A: Winners are selected using a custom built program that was built specifically for this website.  Not even the owners of Talkin' Guns know who the winners are until they are selected 100% randomly!

 

Q: Can I earn extra tokens for the raffle/bonus program?

A: YES!!! For every $20 spent, customers earn 3 extra tokens to use towards the raffle/bonus program! These bonuses are defined in our special offers section located on the left side menu towards the bottom.

 

Q: What happens to my unused tokens...do I have to use them?

A: The raffle/bonus tokens that are awarded to a member will remain indefinitely or until the member chooses to use them!  They will never expire and there is no time frame required that they be used!

 

Q: How do I enter into the very top raffle/bonus item?

A: That item is exclusive to Platinum Members. Each time a platinum member renews their membership they are automatically entered into that drawing...and yes it is limited to only 250 entries before a winner is selected!
