LARGE purchase amounts MAY require the sending of a USPO money order or wire transfer at OUR Discretion and failure to do so upon request will be considered a NONpaying Bidder.
NOTE NOTE NOTE!!!!! All gun purchases that are NOT picked up in person (Meaning we ship to an FFL) MAY require that you Mail us a USPO Money Order for total amount including buyers premium and shipping(USPO ONLY - No Other Money Orders accepted) or Wire transfer your payment to us.
