Legal Requirements

Federal Age Requirement for Purchasing Ammunition: 

According to the ATF:  “Under the Gun Control Act (GCA), shotguns and rifles, and ammunition for shotguns or rifles may be sold only to individuals 18 years of age or older. All firearms other than shotguns and rifles, and all ammunition other than ammunition for shotguns or rifles may be sold only to individuals 21 years of age or older. Licensees are bound by the minimum age requirements established by the GCA regardless of State or local law. However, if State law or local ordinances establish a higher minimum age for the purchase or disposition of firearms, the licensee must observe the higher age requirement.”

[18 U.S.C. 922(b)(1) and (b)(2); 27 CFR 478.99(b)]

Federal Age Requirement for Purchasing Firearms: 

You must be 21 years of age to purchase a handgun or shotgun with a pistol grip. You must be at least 18 years of age to purchase a rifle or standard shotgun (without a pistol grip.)

Federal Requirement for Purchasing Firearms: 

Federal firearms laws prevent the sale of a weapon from Chalk 1 Munitions, LLC directly to an individual in another state (we are located in Idaho). We must ship your firearm directly to an FFL Dealer near you. The steps to follow are:

  1. Order your firearm online using our secure shopping cart. If you know the dealer you are going to use at time of order placement (not a requirement) enter his name into the ‘Ship To’ field.
  2. Find a dealer near you that will accept the transfer of the firearm for you. Most sporting goods stores and pawn shops will provide this service for a small fee. Also, gun clubs, shooting ranges, etc. may provide this service to you. If you know the dealer you are going to use at time of order placement (not a requirement) enter his name into the ‘Ship To’ field. Most dealers charge around $25 for a transfer. You must confirm the transfer with your local dealer in advance.
  3. Next, have the dealer get us a copy of his signed license if we don’t already have it on file. Please Note: It is now legal for us to accept a e-mailed copy of your dealers license! 
  4. Make sure the dealer knows the firearm is coming from us.
  5. We will send you an email when the firearm ships, which will include a tracking number.
  6. All firearm purchases are final once the firearm is picked up from your dealer.
