Firearms Purchase Restrictions & Conditions

Kames Sports will ONLY transfer ownership of a firearm to individuals or agencies in possession of a valid Federal Firearms License (FFL). Kames Sports cannot ship directly to anyone who does not hold a current license. 

At Kames, we make our large gun inventory available to customers all across the United States. However, purchasing guns online involves a process that must be followed in order to legally receive your firearm.

Be Aware of Federal & Local Restrictions

As we’re all aware, buying guns isn’t as easy as it used to be. Federal regulations require you to pass a background check when purchasing a firearm which will be performed when you pick up your gun.

You must be at least 18 years old to purchase a long-gun and 21 to purchase a handgun. When purchasing a firearm from Kames, we require you to comply with Federal and Local laws.

Select a Local Firearm Dealer for Shipping

Kames Sports is a Federal Firearms License dealer which means we can sell and ship firearms to other FFLs in the U.S. Federal law states; we cannot ship guns to private citizens. What does this mean for our customers? You can still purchase guns at KamesSports.com, but you must choose a local licensed firearm dealer to receive it on your behalf. Once you've chosen the dealer you want us to ship to, you must ask the dealer to fax (330-499-3785) or email a copy of their current FFL directly to Kames Sports.

Transfer charges and requirements may vary per FFL dealer, so it is best to ask your preferred local dealer what the process is for gun shipment prior to placing your order with Kames. 

Pickup Your New Firearm When It Arrives

When your local gun shop receives your gun, they will notify you to come pick it up. Prior to completing your background check and the firearm transfer, make sure you see the gun. If the gun is damaged or the wrong gun was shipped, do not complete the background check or transfer. Call Kames immediately at 330-499-4558.

Once you’ve inspected the gun and are satisfied, complete the background check and transfer and enjoy your brand-new firearm.

All gun sales are final. There are a few exceptions:

  • Shipping damage or visible firearm defect. If something is visibly damaged, do not proceed with the background check / transfer. Call immediately
  • If the wrong firearm sent, a mistake may have been made. Do not proceed with the background check / transfer. Call immediately.
  • Unable to own firearm. If you are unable to own the firearm because of federal, state or local laws you will be required to pay for all return shipping charges, a restocking fee of 10%, original shipping costs are not refundable. It is your responsibility to pass the required background check as well as your responsibility to be aware of any Federal, State or Local restrictions that apply to you.
