Interested in buying from us?
We aim to get the partial catalog & sale bill online 4 to 6 weeks ahead of the auction. Of course firearms will continue to be added to the catalog until day of sell.
We offer email & mailing of sale bills. We usually send out one mailing that includes the full color, front & back sale bill that directs people to our website. We send out multiple emails including, when the sale is available to be viewed online, when additions are made, reminders about the upcoming auction and a post sale email.
Buyers paying their bill with cash or check pay hammer price. If choosing to pay with credit/debit card we charge a 3% convenience fee. There is no tax; there is no buyer’s premium at our auctions.
Items are to be paid for that day. The sale is settled before our staff leaves the building and consigners are paid within a week of the auction.
There is a 24 Hour waiting period on long guns and a 72 Hour waiting period on hand guns.
Yes, you certainly can. If you are an FFL holder we can ship them to you. If you are not an FFL holder we can ship the guns to a FFL holder near you. The buyer is responsible for any and all shipping & insurance costs. The guns are packed by Ron Baker Jr., FFL, he packs them the way he would like to see them packed if he were the receiving them.
We understand there are circumstances that prohibit people from being able to attend our sales in person. Therefore, we offer both an absentee or phone bidding option. The difference between the two processes is simple, with phone bidding we call you at least 2 guns before yours come up, establish a good connection with you, then when your gun comes up we relay the bidding information to you and bid on your behalf. Forms are posted online when the catalog is made available.
