Standard Return Policy

All items purchased have a satisfaction guarantee of 7 days with the exception of ammunition, books, firearms, mouth calls, and scopes that have been mounted on a firearm or any other shooting device. After 7 days, the customer will be required to request an authorization from customer service for any type of return. There will be no authorization for returns granted after 30 days of receipt of sale. In the event of a manufacturer defect after 30 days, you will need to contact the manufacturer for further assistance. Due to the type of products we sell, all returns must be in new condition, and all original product packaging (original box, blank warranty cards, manuals, accessories, etc.) must be returned with the item. If an item is returned or refunded please allow up to 14 days for the exchange to take place.

You have the option of exchanging the item(s) or receiving a refund for the full amount of the purchase price less shipping. Refunds on returned items will be issued in the same payment form as tendered at the time of purchase. If a payment was made by credit card, once we receive the product we will credit your account. Please allow up to 7-10 days for a credit to appear on your credit card statement. If payment was made by a check, the refund check will be issued after 10 business days from the date of receiving the returned product.
