Thank you for your interest in Gunshine Arms and our services. We want you to have a great experience here. Understanding our store policy will help you do just that. Please be respectful of the shop and its clients, and you will be shown that same respect and courtesy. The goal of Gunshine Arms is to create a happy client base. We are always open to worthy suggestions, so feel free to contact us if you believe you can help us provide you with better service.
Florida Statute 790 lists all of the places in which you are prohibited from carrying a concealed weapon when you are licensed. The law does not prohibit you from carrying a concealed weapon into any type of retail store. As such, Gunshine Arms is a big proponent of your 2nd Amendment rights, and of the privilege of responsibly carrying a weapon for those who are licensed.
If you do carry into our shop, keep in mind that CONCEALED means CONCEALED – be respectful of the shop and its clients. Regardless of your intent, please do not attempt to remove a concealed weapon from its place of concealment. If you attempt to draw a weapon out of its place of concealment inside Gunshine Arms, you will be viewed as someone with criminal intent. Training and discipline are cornerstones of carrying a weapon responsibly, and we are privileged to have excellent instructors that can help you in those areas.
Background Checks & Waiting Periods
Federal Background Checks will be done for all weapons sold at Gunshine Arms.
1. For sidearms, you must be a Florida resident with a valid state issued photo ID that has your correct address on it.
2. For long guns, you don’t need to be a Florida resident, but the weapon you are attempting to purchase must be legal at the Local, County and State level of your State of Residence.
3. If you have a valid Florida Concealed Weapon License, you may take your weapon with you on the day of purchase after passing the Federal Background Check. If you do not have a CWL, the waiting period is five business days (not including the day of the transaction).
NOTE: If you have a criminal issue in your background that will prevent you from completing a weapon purchase, please don’t waste your time, or the shop’s time …………………….. the machine NEVER forgets !
Weapons left at Gunshine for more than 90 days are considered abandoned, and reasonable attempts to contact the prospective owners will be made prior to the end of the 90 day period. This policy does not apply to Class 3 NFA weapons that are awaiting approval from the Federal government. Our goal is deliver your weapons to you, but we are not in the business of long term storage.
Please do NOT enter the shop if you have been drinking or are otherwise altered. The shop reserves the right to refuse service to ANYONE at the sole discretion of the owner. If you are asked to leave and refuse, you will be considered trespassing. PHOTOGRAPHY IS NOT PERMITTED INSIDE THE PREMISES.
