Cheaper Than Dirt! announced Wednesday that they have begun selling firearms online in addition to their broad selection of ammunition and firearms accessories. The move follows two years of rapid growth for the Fort Worth based company. Robust sales of ammunition and firearms accessories in 2008, 2009, and the first part of 2010 have prompted the company to expand into pistol, rifle, and shotgun sales. CEO Michael Tenny was very happy to announce the new online offerings, saying “This is something we’ve worked towards for some time. We’ve now implemented a system that allows customers to browse, select and purchase a firearm online. With more than 3,500 firearms available online, we have one of the biggest selections on the internet. Firearms are shipped via 2nd Day Air at a very low $7.99, so it arrives extremely quickly after we confirm a valid FFL to transfer the firearm to.” Federal law requires firearms to be shipped to FFL Dealers. Purchasers can browse, select, and purchase a gun online and, after submitting FFL information, the firearm will be sent to a local dealer who will complete the federally mandated background check and transfer the firearm to the customer for a small fee.
An enormous variety of firearms are available at “Cheaper Than Dirt” prices. The broad selection of guns includes more than 70 manufacturers and millions of dollars worth of inventory in stock and ready to ship directly to your local dealer. Users can easily browse by manufacturer or by firearm type and caliber to locate their desired purchase and checkout online.
The process for ordering a firearm is very straightforward. After finding the shotgun, rifle, or pistol they wish to purchase, customers simply add it to the online cart, and checkout online as they would normally. They will receive an email confirming the order and providing further instructions. At that point, purchasers will need to contact their local gun dealer to arrange for transfer of the firearm. It’s easy to locate a dealer near you using Cheaper Than Dirt’s online dealer locater.
Transfer fees can vary so it is a good idea to check with the FFL Dealer ahead of time to request a quote on the fees associated with your firearm transfer. If the customer feels that the fees are too high, it’s a simple process to search for another FFL Dealer. The FFL dealer or the customer will then fax or email a copy of their ATF issued license to Cheaper Than Dirt, and upon receipt the firearm will be shipped to the dealer who should contact the customer to let them know that their new purchase has arrived.
