GunsInternational.com is committed to it's users personal and financial information protection. We utilize high levels of internet security to protect your private personal and financial information. While a buyer being defrauded by a seller on our site is exceedingly rare, you must realize that you are dealing over the internet and as such take the necessary precautions. You must gain a comfort level with who you are dealing with on the site.
If they are a FFL, ask for their FFL number and check under our FFL links on the ATF Online EZ check system, that they are currently registered.
You may also go to www.anywho.com and perform a reverse number look up to make sure they are who they say they are. While it is not our policy we would recommend that you confirm the sale on the phone if you have any questions about the seller. Be suspicious of any seller that refuses to talk to you on the phone.
Be sure to clarify the seller's return policy. GunsInternational.com's return guideline is:
Unless the buyer and seller agree to modify in writing by buyer and seller, as may be the case in a new gun, or layaway, the return policy is three (3) calendar days from the day the item(s) are received by the buyer or delivered to the FFL acting for the buyer. The item may be returned for any reason, but the buyer must notify the seller within the three (3) calendar day inspection period. The buyer must start the return within the next four (4) calendar days to receive a complete refund, less all shipping and FFL charges. In other words shipping must start within one week of receipt of the item(s). The return shipping must be of equal shipping level, including insurance i.e. Priority, Express, Blue Label etc. The return item MUST be in the same condition as when shipped to the buyer. This is an inspection period only, a gun is not to be fired or disassembled. Upon the receipt and inspection of the returned gun, the seller agrees to issue a prompt refund. Recommendation: Confirm purchase with all details via the Contact Seller form within the listing and print out the listing for your records. Any modification of the 3 day return policy must be in writing by both buyer and seller.
Be sure to follow the sellers instructions and if possible for your protection pay by credit card and if not pay by US Postal Order for your protection. Be sure to include all of your shipping information, as well as your phone number.
