Cash & Bank Wire funds are also accepted. It is a Federal crime to write a non-sufficient fund check or cancel a credit card on a firearms purchase – we report the gun as stolen to the ATF and local law enforcement – there is a mandatory prison sentence for the stealing of a firearm – so bear this in mind when writing a personal check or using a credit card. All firearms are consigned & transferred with GAU Firearms LLC, 10550 72nd St. STE 506, Largo, FL 33777 All auction guns must be promptly removed (if Instant Check is a proceed).

KNOW YOUR LAWS BEFORE BIDDING: We reserve the right to refuse a bidding account to anyone. Under no circumstances may you apply for a bidding account if you are under any kind of a disability in terms of possessing a firearm of any kind. No exceptions. Also, if you cannot possess a firearm, you must NOT enter our auction facility in Largo, Florida. We are an FFL dealer, so all federal and state firearm laws govern every aspect of these online auctions and any infractions will be immediately reported to local law enforcement agencies and the ATF. You must be 18 to purchase rifles or shotguns and 21 to purchase a handgun. You must be age 18 to purchase long gun ammunition and age 21 or older to purchase handgun ammunition. You are responsible for knowing if your state bars a certain type of firearm/ammo/accessory from being shipped to you. If you purchase an item that cannot be shipped to your state, we will auction this item at the next auction and mail you a check minus a consignment fee. Know your state/federal firearms laws BEFORE bidding. Note also that Gun Auctions USA, LLC does NOT under any circumstances pay, nor are we responsible for any fees associated with your hometown FFL – that is between you and your FFL dealer.
BIDDING IN THE Gun Auctions USA AUCTIONS: Once you have your email and password registered in your account, you may place bids as soon as an auction item opens for bidding. Your bids are FINAL and constitute a binding contract. Please bid EARLY to avoid disappointment. “Sniping” in at the last moment can be risky if your computer crashes or runs slow – and has no advantage in these types of extended auctions. NOTE CAREFULLY: We are NOT responsible for your SPAM catcher/your computer’s malfunctions stopping any of our E-Mails to you in regard to outbid notifications – you are responsible for watching any gun on which you are high bidder and determining that you are the winner of the auction. Gun Auctions USA employees are firearm collectors too and therefore allowed to bid on consigned items. Once you are finished bidding, we send invoices within 48 hours, if not received please request your invoice at email@example.com. Your posted wins at www.gunauctionsusa.com are final. We reserve the right to resume or restart or extend an interrupted auction. IMPORTANT: Make sure you hit your computer’s “Refresh” button frequently AND check your bid standing (“Winning, Outbid, Lost, Won”) so you can assure you are the high bidder at any given time and in fact the winner.
HARMONY OF THE SALE/AUCTION PREVIEW: Any person disrupting the harmony of the gun auction/preview days will surrender their password and local law enforcement authorities will be summoned. If found to be in violation of our rules, your current bids will not be honored and you will be blocked from further Gun Auctions USA Auctions – your account will be deactivated. We reserve the right to refuse a bid number or the rights to preview the collections to anyone. DO NOT BID unless you have read all of these “Terms of Sale”. No other rules apply! We are NOT associated with other websites and have our own terms and rules.

Conditions provided are only the opinion of the auction house. The bidder is ultimately responsible for determining the condition of a lot.

THERE IS NO INSPECTION PERIOD OF ANY KIND ONCE THE FIREARM IS PURCHASED AND RECEIVED. This is a real AUCTION and the majority of these guns are estate firearms from the deceased – – the estates are paid, the court documents filed and the sale is final. We do not test fire each gun and therefore do not guarantee that they will fire correctly or function correctly. We are not gunsmiths and do not take guns apart – we cannot confirm if all of the internal parts are present on any given firearm. All gun sales are final. Any internet descriptions of the sale guns are meant merely as a guide – make your own determination as to its worth and validity. We offer no guarantee or warranty on these firearms. We sell these guns as collectibles only and do not recommend that they be fired prior to qualified inspection. All consignors’ names are withheld due to security reasons.

TAKING POSSESSION OF AUCTION FIREARMS: We absolutely observe all Federal and State gun laws. All firearms are consigned & transferred with GAU Firearms LLC, 10550 72nd St. STE 506, Largo, FL 33777. The same person who registered the bid number MUST be the one to pay and pick up the auction firearm(s) at the conclusion of the sale – no one else will be permitted to make the transfer. AVOID THIS PROBLEM – DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BID FOR ANOTHER PERSON. Merely tell the person to register and create their own account and password. Firearm sales to non-licensees (with the exception of muzzleloaders or antique arms manufactured before 1898 or non-guns) will be subject to and must pass the FBI Instant Check – NICS. The only exception is a licensed Federal Firearms Dealer or Curio & Relic Collector License holder (guns MUST be on ATF approved C&R list or be 50 years or older) who must present a current, signed copy of a license (or FAX or E-Mail scan). CAREFULLY NOTE: As per ATF instructions, we send our FFL only to other FFL’s and NOT C&R’s or non-licensees. If you are NOT a Florida resident, you may not take direct possession of a handgun (FFL or C&R Collectors may take immediate possession of qualifying handguns) – see next section below. If you delay after your Instant Check, you will merely pick up your auction firearm(s) later at the Gun Auctions USA Auction location. If you deny after your Instant Check, you will NOT take possession of your auction firearms or ammunition and they will be sold at our next available auction and a check will be mailed to you for whatever the gun brings minus a commission fee. If you know you are not supposed to possess a firearm, do not bid at our sales. We will summon law enforcement officials on the matter.
AUCTION GUNS WON BY OUT OF STATE BIDDERS: : If you are not a Florida resident, we will ship your firearms to your local gun dealer when he faxes us his signed, current FFL license, E-Mails a copy, or sends it in the mail. If you have a current ATF C&R License we can ship qualified firearms to your home if your state law permits. The shipping cost varies according to size, weight, value and destination. In some cases we can get two or more handgun/rifles in one box and the charge per gun will be reduced. We’ll work with you on this to be the most economical. We will provide a tracking number to you once the gun ships if you request it. We are experts at packing firearms correctly and will make sure your firearms get to your dealer safely. We highly suggest that your local FFL dealer be instructed by you NOT to open the shipping carton until you are present. This is very important! Your name will appear on the shipping label to facilitate this request. All firearms are consigned & transferred with GAU Firearms LLC, 10550 72nd St. STE 506, Largo, FL 33777
