Fall Firearms Auction

Saturday, September 24 at 10:00 am








The Procedure For Purchasing

A Gun On This Auction

Is The Same As Buying At A Gun Store.





1- If you have not filled out Gun Transfer Paperwork before the auction and you purchase a gun - Please DO NOT stop in until Tuesday, or after. There is a full 3 day holding period, no guns can be handed out until Tuesday or after anyway.


2- Once you stop in, Tuesday or after, we will have you fill out a 4473 Transfer Form and we will then run your background check. If your background check comes back "Approved" you will be able to take your gun(s) with you that day. If your background check comes back "Pending", you will have to come back and pick up once your background is "Approved". It is not uncommon for Illinois/ ATF background checks to be "Pending" for a few days. You are welcome to stop in on Monday, but even if your background check is "Approved", you wouldn't be able to pick up until Tuesday, or after.


3- If you will be stopping in Tuesday, or after, please email us sometime between Saturday-Monday, just to let us know that you are a local buyer and will be in to pay and pick up. This way we will know NOT to charge your credit card on file for your purchases.


Out-Of-State Buyers

All Handguns Must Be Transferred In The State Of The Buyer.

For Local Out-Of-State Buyers, We Will Take Your Handguns To

West Quincy, MO or Keokuk, IA

If You Are A Dealer

Or Will Be Picking Up For A Dealer,
