All bidders who attend the sale must register and obtain a bidder’s card in order to participate in the auction. Absentee/Telephone bidders must register by filling out and signing an absentee bid form.
All Federal, State and Local firearms laws will be observed. FFL Licensees may take possession of any firearm on day of sale when they present a signed copy of their Federal Firearms License. Curio and Relic holders may take possession of C&R firearms same day as well providing those arms meet the federal criteria for a C&R firearm. Pennsylvania residents, 18 and older, may take possession of any long gun on day of sale providing the proper paperwork is filled out and the transfer has been approved through the PA State Police background check. PA residents, 21 and older, may take possession of any handgun and/or long gun on day of sale providing the proper paperwork is filled out and the transfer has been approved through the PA State Policy background check. While most background checks are immediate, approvals could take up to 15 days. Most non-residents may take possession of long guns on day of sale after completing the proper forms and successfully completing a background check; modern handguns will need to be shipped to an FFL holder in the buyer’s home state.
Buyers are responsible for all transfer fees and shipping charges. All items must be paid for on the day of sale. Bidders should be familiar with their local and state laws as TAG will not be responsible for any parties purchasing items which may not be possessed in, or shipped, to their state of residence.
NOTE: Items that meet the age requirements but have been altered from their original configuration may NOT be delivered on a C&R License.
Firearms that are not marked with one of these notations are considered to be “MODERN” and all proper paperwork is required unless you are an FFL Dealer.
