We are still physically unable to handle ammunition transfers. We recognize that many of you are loyal customers that have spent hundreds, maybe even thousands of dollars with us, but the physical and compliance burden of these transactions are insurmountable. Please complain to your Assemblywoman, and State Senator, as we are unable to address them, or the dozens of "special ammunition situations" we are presented with monthly.
The definition of ammunition, according to California Penal Code 16150, “ammunition” means one or more loaded cartridges consisting of: a primed case, propellant, and with one or more projectiles. “Ammunition” does not include blanks, reloading bullets, primers, smokeless powder or brass.
Since July 1st, 2019, ammunition sold must have an ammunition eligibility check. We have processed over ten thousand of these transactions since and have learned a few things: that it is a mostly useless procedure, and that thousands of people are turned away to stop half a dozen bad guys in the past 3-1/2 years.
The easiest way to purchase ammunition is to add it to a delivery of a firearm. When picking up a firearm after the “cooling off” period we can add ammunition to the firearm background check. Please make sure to shop for and make your ammunition selection before completing the firearm transaction. We will still need to enter the ammunition but there will be no additional fees or delays.
IDENTIFICATION: In order to submit a Standard Ammunition Eligibility Check, you must present a valid unexpired California Driver’s License or Identification Card, or active-duty military ID (CAC). If the California DL or ID is marked “Federal Limits Apply” then a Proof of Citizenship is required. For US Citizens, this means a birth certificate showing you were born in the United States, one of its territories, military bases, or a US State Department Certificate of a Birth of U.S. Citizens Abroad. Please note, that if your name is different than the one on your birth certificate, you must also provide the court order or marriage license that supports this name change. Permanent residents must always provide their Green Cards, and people visiting on Visa must always provide their Visa and valid hunting license.
ADDRESS VALIDATION: This process is more of an address validation than a background check. The California DOJ must already know that your house is armed, before they will allow you to purchase ammunition. You must have a firearm registered to you, at the address you are currently residing at. If you have moved since your last firearm purchase, you cannot purchase ammunition until you either submit an AFS Update or purchase a new firearm. If you pass the validation, we do not pass through the state's fee. We want you to buy our ammo and will pay this fee for you.
DISCOUNTS: Bulk discounts apply! Buy 10 boxes of any one SKU, receive a 10% discount. Buy 1000+ rounds of box ammo and receive a 20% discount. Certain bulk items are priced with these discounts already included.
