FIREARMS SAFETY

Some of the guns listed here are used, some are old and should not be used with modern ammunition.  Due to the number of variables not under the control of Hero's Arms these guns are not warranted  to be suitable for any particular purpose.  Older guns should be checked out by a competent gunsmith before being fired.

Holds

If you have decided that you want to purchase a gun call me (802-372-4789), or E-mail me, taylor@herosarms.com, and give me the gun’s stock number (HA999) and your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address.. I will check to see if it is already on “Hold,” and, if not, put it on “Hold” for you. A “Hold” lasts for 7 days. During those 7 days I will not sell the gun to anyone else, and I will call or E-mail you to verify that you are still interested if I get another offer. If I have not heard from you after 7 days, (either a request for another 7 day hold, or Cashier’s Check and Signed-In-Ink FFL) I will assume you have changed your mind and the “Hold” will expire.

Payment:

 

Hero's Arms accepts Visa and MasterCard  but they do not earn the 3% cash-equivalent discount that is in our posted prices. Thus Orders Paid by Credit card will be 3% more than the listed price. Call us to make a credit card purchase at 802-372-4789. 

 

Credit Card Checks are accepted as regular personal checks.  Orders accompanied by a postal money order or cashier's check will be shipped immediately, regular checks will be held for a week for clearance. (If you can access your account electronically and e-mail Hero's Arms an image of the cleared check (or call and tell us what the stamp on the back says) we will ship immediately after we receive the image or information - this may reduce the delay to a few days).

Hero's Arms accepts Wire Transfers, but as the bank charges $15 for an incoming Wire Deposit add $15 to the cost of the gun and shipping.  If you wish to pay by wire transfer I will e-mail you the necessary information.

Pricing Policy

Hero's Arms works diligently to sell firearms at the lowest possible price consistent with staying in business.  Our mark-up is quite minimal, and if you compare our prices with others you will find we are usually lower, but, if not, you can always buy from the lower cost seller.  Most of our guns go up in value every year, so we have no motivation to sell-off inventory below cost.  We do not bargain, the listed price is the "best" price.

Occasionally people ask if I can match the price of an online discounter which moves a high volume of guns without ever opening a box, the answer is usually no. Every gun that is on my web site has had its shipping grease cleaned, has had 15 high resolution close up photos taken and edited, and has had the actual trigger pull, actual bore diameter, actual gun weight, actual LOP and actual cast and drop measured. The photos allow the customer to see and compare wood patterns and engravings, the measurements, which often vary significantly from gun to gun from the same manufacturer, allow the customer to find a gun which really fits. If a new gun has any defects I return it to the manufacturer for repair or replacement before it makes it to my web site.

Some states now, by law, require transfer dealers (FFL holders) to collect "Use Tax" which is the same as Sales Tax even thought the sale took place out of state.  Please do not ask us to alter the Invoice price in order to reduce the "Use Tax" as this would be fraudulent.

Pick-Up at Hero's Arms:

Firearms picked up at Hero's Arms in South Hero, Vermont, will have Vermont's 6% Sales Tax added. (This does not apply to transfers, which only have a $20 service charge.) For a long gun you must be over 18 years of age and be legally eligible to possess firearms.  (For a handgun the age is 21).  For the background check bring with you a government issued photo ID showing your current physical address, such as a driver’s license.  If your Driver’s License does not show an address, only a Post Office Box number, you must bring a second government issued document showing your name and physical address, for example, a copy of your property tax bill.

NIB = New-In-Box,  NIC = New-In-Case

Means the gun is absolutely brand new.  When it arrived I went through my standard procedure.  I opened the box, checked the gun for marks or damage, sprayed it with Rem-Oil, wiped it down, sprayed Rem-Oil in the barrels and ran patches through to remove shipping grease, assembled it, took photographs of it, weighed and measured it, made up a web page for it, and put it in a safe.  When your funds and FFL come I will take it out of the safe, pack it in the original box or case, put this in another box and ship it to your FFL Dealer by fully insured UPS Ground, e-mailing you the tracking number.

Shipping:

For residents of states other than Vermont, ordering by mail, the firearms must be shipped to a Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder in their state who will carry out the F. B. I. background check before delivering the firearm.  In order to ship a firearm to a FFL holder in another state a current, signed-in-ink copy of their FFL must be mailed (Hero's Arms, P. O. Box 320, South Hero, VT. 05486-0320 (Postal Mail Address), Hero's Arms, 34 Town Line Road, South Hero, VT. 05486 (UPS-FedEx Address) or Faxed (802-372-5900) or sent by E-mail to sales@herosarms.com as a JPG or Adobe PDF attachment.   All FFLs will be verified by FFLeZCheck.

California:  Hero's Arms is enrolled in the California Firearms Licensee Check (CFLC) program.  In order to get the Firearms Shipment Approval Letter, needed for every individual shipment to California, the FFL Dealer in California must supply Hero's Arms with their 5 digit Centralized List (CL) or California Firearms Dealer (CFD) number in addition to a signed copy of their FFL.

Firearms will be shipped, insured, by UPS Ground.  The packing and shipping fee is $40. (in the 48 States) which just covers the average cost of shipping and insurance.  Exceptionally heavy guns, such as multi-barrel sets in cases will have shipping individually calculated.  If you want a faster service the actual cost will be charged.   Because high value guns have occasionally been damaged by careless persons I now have a label on the box which says: "Transfer FFL Please Open Box Only With Customer Present" so you will be able to verify condition when the gun is unwrapped.
 

Shipping: Business days in transit UPS Ground From South Hero, Vermont:

Seven-Day Return Privilege


The buyer has seven days to return merchandise from the time he/she receives the item from Hero's Arms. (Return package must be Post Office/Delivery Service dated no later than seven days after arrival of item to buyer's or FFL holder's address, i.e. if the package is received on Tuesday, the return date must be the following Tuesday). The buyer does not have to give a reason for a return and will receive a refund, but the return must be post (or freight) paid. Hero's Arms will refund the purchase price in its entirety, but not shipping costs. Merchandise returned must be in the same condition as when it was sent. (For example, New-In-Box guns must not have been fired.) There are no returns or refunds on custom work, (such as the installation of sights), for guns that have been on Lay-Away, for Exported  guns (because of the time involved), or for guns specifically ordered for the customer (as these are often unique and not in high demand). New-In-Box guns which have been fired can not be re-sold by Hero's Arms as "new" so they will be subject to a re-stocking charge of at least 10%, or more if there has been any damage.

In the case of firearms shipped through a third-party FFL holder, the return period will begin the day the intermediary FFL holder receives the gun, not the day that State Law allows the customer to take possession of the gun.. It is the responsibility of the buyer to make arrangements to examine the gun and comply with the return policy while the gun is in the possession of the FFL licensee. When federal, state or local laws prohibit its delivery to the buyer the firearm may be returned with the potential buyer paying shipping in both directions.


Lay-Away

Several customers have asked if Hero’s Arms has a Lay-Away plan. After reviewing the policies of other firearms retailers I have crafted what I think is a good plan.

1. The customer calculates the total price of the gun, that is, the price plus $40 for shipping if out of Vermont, or the price plus 6% sales tax if it is to be picked up in Vermont.

2. The customer then decides how long he needs to purchase the gun, and makes a non-refundable Initial Deposit according to the following table:

Number of Days needed to Complete Purchase Percent of Total Price for Initial Deposit
30 10%
60 20%
90 30%


3. Hero’s Arms then opens an Invoice and credits the Deposit, sending a copy to the customer. Additional payments may be made during or just before the end of the period at the customer’s discretion, and the balance owing will be updated on a new Invoice.

4. All Lay-Away sales are final and do not include an inspection period or the right of return.

5. In the event that the customer does not complete payment by the agreed upon date, the initial deposit is forfeit, without recourse, and the gun will be returned to Hero’s Arms inventory. Additional payments above the initial deposit will be returned after a sufficient period of time has elapsed to insure that all checks and other instruments have cleared.

6. When the final payment is received, along with the signed-in-ink FFL to which it will be shipped, the gun will be shipped immediately if the final payment is a Cashiers Check or Postal Money Order. If a personal check or other money order is used as payment, there will be a delay to insure that the payment has cleared.


7. Essentially the customer is buying the right to purchase the gun, with the Deposit credited to the purchase, or abandoned if the purchase is not completed. This secures the gun until the customer has the funds, or compensates Hero’s Arms for lost profits incurred by removing the gun from inventory. Lay-Away is limited to a maximum of 90 days, because Hero's Arms can not buy other guns, which might sell quickly for a profit, while its money is tied up in a gun on lay-away.
 


Exporting Firearms

Hero's Arms does not export firearms to other countries, but will send a firearm to an exporter,  who will take care of the paperwork and shipping.  The usual $40 shipping fee applies for sending the gun to the exporter, and the purchaser is responsible for the exporter's fees and the shipping to their country.  Because of the length of time involved all export sales are final.  Here are some Exporters Hero's Arms has dealt with
