Terms of Sale for Online Orders
Please review our updated PAYMENT METHODS as our credit card acceptance terms changed Feb 1, 2020.
OUR SHOWROOM WILL BE OPEN ON A LIMITED BASIS STARTING MAY 26. We are allowing only 2 customers in the store at one time. Please call before entering as we are keeping the front door locked. We are still here to fill online orders and take telephone inquiries. Thank you for your patience.
Sales Tax Collection
Because of recent court rulings, we are obligated to start collecting sales tax for the following states and rates:
North Carolina 7.0%
Sales tax will not be collected if you are buying for resale and we have your Resale Certificate on file. Sales Tax Licenses are not Resale Certificates and will not be accepted. If you do not have a Resale Certificate then you will need to fill a CRT-61 Form to be tax-exempt on purchases. Please email a copy of your current Resale Certificate or filled out CRT-61 Form to: email@example.com and inform your salesman which items you are buying are for resale. Tax Exempt orders can only be placed by calling 309-342-5800 and speaking with sales. You will not be able to check out online using your tax exempt status. We will not refund any taxes for orders placed online.
All items are subject to prior sale. Most of the items listed on our website have a quantity of one, which is the one you are looking at. You must call to purchase firearms. If the same item is in two different carts, the first person to finish the checkout process will be the one who gets the item. If an image is representative of multiple items, we will note it in the description.
While we try to describe each item completely, they may not be complete enough to finalize your purchase decision. They are intended to give a general overall condition. If you have any questions or want a better description of an item, please call and speak to a salesman. Our salesmen are collectors themselves with decades of experience and can give you a very accurate description of an item while holding it in their hands.
To place an item on hold, call during business hours and speak to a salesman. For firearms, this is the only way to purchase. We do not hold firearms based on emails. When you call to speak to a salesman, they will get your payment information should you decide to purchase it. Before calling, please sign-up for an account online. This will insure accuracy of your information.
PAYMENT METHODS: The prices displayed in store and online reflect a cash/check discount. Starting February 1, 2020, firearms and other items that are purchased in the store or over the phone and paid for with a credit card will have a 3% fee added to the invoice. Currently there is no extra charge for items purchased online.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express credit cards. To pay with a money order, personal check (with a 10 day waiting period) or cash, please call and place your order with a salesman. The check or money order must then be received within 7 calendar days or the order will be cancelled.
FEDERAL FIREARMS LICENSE (FFL): is required on all shipments of modern guns. We must wait for a copy from your dealer before we can ship to them. We will also ship C&R eligible firearms to Curio and Relic (C&R) license holders. We accept your signed, legible FFL and C&R licenses via fax at 309/ 342-5730 (always on), email at FFL@simpsonltd.com or through the mail at Simpson Ltd; 140 S Seminary St; Galesburg, IL 61401. If you are an FFL holder and would be willing to accept firearms transfers from us to customers near you, let us know. We will list you as a transfer dealer, allowing customers to select you to receive their firearms on their behalf. Pre-1898 firearms and non-firearms items are exempt from licensing requirements.
All items shipped to an Illinois address will be charged 8.75% sales tax.
LAYAWAY POLICY: We are willing to put items on layaway for you under the following conditions: The item must be priced at $500 or more with a 20% minimum deposit and must be paid off within 30 days. You may have a maximum of 2 items on layaway at one time. If the balance is not paid off within the 30 day period, all deposits and payments will be forfeited and not returned or applied to another item.
NOTE ON USED AND/OR COLLECTIBLE FIREARMS: We make our best attempt to check our used/collectible firearms for mechanical function and completeness only. We do not test fire our firearms. We DO NOT guarantee our used/collectible firearms to feed, function or fire. We recommend that any used/collectible firearm be checked out by a competent gunsmith before attempting use.
SHIPPING RATE NOTE: Because of recent shipping restrictions and charges placed on us by UPS and FedEx (handguns must ship via next day or 2nd day air and they have added a $10 surcharge for parcels over 48" long), we must charge a MINIMUM of $40.00 for shipping HANDGUNS and $35.00 for shipping Long Guns. Minimum shipping for items ordered over the phone is $20.00.
FORIEGN SHIPPING: Only Credit Cards are accepted for orders shipped out of the United States. We do NOT accept PayPal. Any duty, taxes, VAT or other fees charged by your country are your responsibility. We do not pre-pay these fees for you. Our invoice will always reflect the actual price paid for the items purchased. The fees you may be charged by your country will be based on these values.
All guns are matching, except magazines, and are 100% original, unless otherwise stated. Buyer pays all shipping costs. 3-day inspection granted. Returns must be in same condition as shipped to you. Buyer pays shipping costs both ways in the event of a return. Please call before returning any item.
Our return policy lasts a maximum of 3 days from the time your receive your item from us or your dealer. If 3 days have passed since you received your purchase, and we have not been contacted by you, unfortunately, we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.

There are certain situations where only partial refunds are granted:
