Orders will be shipped using Loomis Express or Canada Post and all orders will be shipped requiring a signature and proof of ID on the recipients end to protect both parties from fraud.

When you place an order, we will estimate shipping and delivery dates for you based on the availability of your items and the shipping options you choose. Depending on the shipping provider you choose, shipping date estimates may appear on the shipping quotes page.

Please also note that the shipping rates for many items we sell are weight-based. The weight of any such item can be found on its detail page. To reflect the policies of the shipping companies we use, all weights will be rounded up to the next full pound.

Restricted and Non-Restricted firearms can both be shipped within Canada. We will also ship ammunition and reloading components such as primers and powder. These items are deamed as dangerous goods and the shipping fees may be higher than standard due to this classification.
