Elk Creek Company and its owners cannot be held liable for your failure to comply with the laws in your locality.

Also note that the very few modern (post-1898) guns listed from my personal collection require a FFL, and can be shipped only to your local FFL address. But note that we do not have an FFL, so your local FFL must be willing to accept shipments from private parties.  Check on this before ordering.

We do not allow local pick-up of orders, although we might be able to meet at a few scheduled gun shows, if within 30 days of order payment. (See the Our Planned Gun Shows page, for details.)

No international orders. We only ship to addresses within the US and Possessions.

We do not export firearms or ammunition outside of the 50 States and Possessions.

A special note on insurance: Shipping insurance is not included with our standard shipping rates.  If you want to pay extra for insurance, you must contact us to purchase insurance at the time you place your order. Once we drop off a package with the USPS or a common carrier, we cannot be held liable for uninsured items.
