The Procedure For Purchasing A Gun On This Auction

Is The Same As Buying From A Gun Store


1-  If you purchase a gun and will be paying/picking up at our office in Carthage, please DO NOT stop in until Tuesday, June 25, or after unless you are a dealer, or have a dealer's license with you. The Holding Period Starts On Saturday.

There is a full 3-day holding period. No guns can be handed out to non-dealers 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 your gun(s) once your background check 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 will not be able to pick up until Tuesday or after any way.


3- If you are a local buyer and are from IA or MO, you will need to complete any handgun transfers in the state in which you reside.

We will take handgun purchases and Illinois Banned Items to West Quincy, MO or Keokuk, IA.


Any Items that are "Banned" in Illinois will have a disclaimer at the beginning of the description.

We will NOT complete transfer paperwork on any "Banned" items regardless of the buyer's location.

Illinois residents CANNOT bid on "banned items".

"Banned" items will need to be:
1- Shipped to a dealer
2- Picked up by a dealer
3- Delivered to Keokuk, IA or West Quincy, MO

If the only "Tactical Feature" of a semi-automatic gun is that it has a detachable magazine that is over the "10 or 15" round legal capacity, Illinois residents can buy it.

However, we simply will not give the magazine to an Illinois buyer.
