We ship using UPS ground whenever possible. There are many forms of delivery out there, and we have found UPS to be the most reliable and cost effective way to deliver goods. UPS goes up on their rates every year and we absorb it as long as we can. Shipping costs are entirely out of our control.
Small non-gun stuff ships via USPS Priority Mail in flat-rate boxes. Those prices seem to go up regularly as well.
International shipping is generally by USPS International Priority.
Sorry, but we cannot make exceptions to our shipping methods. Yes, I know first class is cheaper that Priority, but it also means I have to close the shop, drive down the mountain to town and stand in line at the post office during business hours. Trust me, it is cheaper to pay for Priority Mail shipping than it is to pay me shop rates to stand in line at the post office.
Shipping is automatically calculated by our online shopping cart system. You can put things in your shopping cart and there is a button you can click on to estimate shipping. Sometimes it overestimates. If we see a weird shipping charge, we will adjust it. .
For shipping outside of the Continental US, please contact us for a quote. Shipping to AK, HI, and international customers is generally by USPS. Certain sizes packages to some locations in Europe have to go airfreight. Please check your local laws before ordering.
