Cowboys and cowgirls, remember this: Before you lay your money down, check the trail ahead with your local FFL dealer. Make sure the gear you’re after can ride into your state without causing a ruckus. We’re here to help you navigate these rough trails, but the law’s the law, and it’s your job to know it.

FINAL NOTICE: Any gear that can’t be transferred to you for whatever reason will cost you in shipping both ways, plus a restocking fee. Make sure you’re clear to receive what you’re ordering by checking with your FFL dealer before you make your purchase. This is the way of the Tactical Cowboy Outdoors – keeping your journey within the bounds of the law, without losing the spirit of the wild west.
