Frequently Asked Questions

Can you ship my firearm direct to me at my home or office?

No. All firearms must be shipped to a verified FFL (Federal Firearms License) holder. RedNex has both an FFL and SOT on file; feel free to use us as your transfer agent.

Can you transfer or accept a transferred firearm for me?

Sure. RedNex can easily transfer a firearm for you to any verified FFL holder. We charge a $35 fee, plus the actual cost of shipping.

We also accept transferred firearms. Our transfer fee is $35 for a firearm that we do not have in stock, or $45 for a firearm that we do have in stock. If transferring more than one firearm at a time, there is a $10 fee for each additional firearm. Be sure the shipper of your firearm includes, in the box, paperwork with your name, phone number, copy of FFL license if the shipper holds an FFL, or copy of driver’s license.

Do you buy used guns?

Yes. We are always willing to consider buying your firearms.  Feel free to stop by and have us take a look at what you have so we can make you an offer.  

Will you trade for guns?

Yes, see “buying guns” above.

What is a Federal Firearms License (FFL)?

A Federal Firearms License, or FFL, assures that the license holder follows all applicable laws during the transfer of firearms. Paperwork and background checks are a big part of this. All firearms sold in Virginia must be processed through an FFL (except personal/private sales).

Do you have a lay-a-way program?

Yes. We offer 90 days same as cash. A 25% non-refundable down payment is required on any item placed in layaway. After that, you have a full 90 days to pay the item off interest free - no payment schedule is mandated. However, if you fail to meet your commitment, RedNex will refund any payments made over the 25% down payment. You must come into the store in person to collect any overpayment due on your expired layaway.

What do I need to buy a handgun? You must be a minimum of 21 years of age, and a Virginia resident to buy a handgun in the state of Virginia. Virginia and the ATF require a background check which will determine if you are legally permitted to purchase a firearm. You will need to bring the following with you:

Your Virginia Driver’s license or State ID card – with physical (911 address) address** A second ID that has your name and address exactly as they appear on your VADL/ID

** If your VADL has a PO Box, you must still show two IDs verifying the PO Box, and a 3rd ID must be government issued with the correct physical (911) address. (Voter ID Card, Hunting License, CC Permit)

What do I need to buy a long gun?

You must be a minimum of 18 years of age. Virginia and the ATF require a background check which will determine if you are legally permitted to purchase a firearm. You will need to bring the following with you:

Your Driver’s license or State ID card – with physical (911 address) address** A second ID that has your name and address exactly as they appear on your DL/ID

** If your DL has a PO Box, you must still show two IDs verifying the PO Box, and a 3rd ID must be government issued with the correct physical (911) address. (Voter ID Card, Hunting License, CC Permit)

If you are purchasing a rifle, and it falls under Virginia’s definition of an assault rifle, you must be 21 years of age, and bring proof of US citizenship (birth certificate, voter id, or passport).

Why is my background check taking so long?

While we’d like to have a say in how long a background check takes to clear, there are many factors that might impact your length of time for approval.  The Virginia State Police conducts all firearm background checks electronically; if there is a delay unfortunately it is out of our hands. Typically our background checks are returned within 10 minutes.

What does caliber refer to?

Caliber, or calibre, is used to describe the diameter of a bullet (and or bore). In the U.S., caliber is generally expressed in inches. 1.0 equals one inch, while .45 equals 45/100 of an inch. Worldwide, most calibers are expressed using metric measurements. As an example, a 9mm bullet is simply 9mm in diameter.

What is the difference between automatic and semi-automatic guns?

Although many guns are routinely referred to as “automatic” this is a bit of a misnomer. The older reference is more accurate, these guns would have been referred to as “self-loaders”.  A semi-automatic firearm discharges one projectile, or load of shot each time the trigger is activated. A true automatic will fire a stream of projectiles as long as the trigger is activated or your ammunition lasts.

Can you special order items for me?

Yes! We have dozens of distributors and hundreds of brands at our disposal.  Let us know what you are looking for, and we’ll do our best to find it. If it’s a hard to find item, we will even keep your information on file and call you when it’s available!

Can I buy a silencer/suppressor? Are they legal?

Yes! It’s a relatively simple, although, lengthy process. The federal government requires that all suppressor/silencer owners pay a $200 Tax Stamp for the item. You must pay this for each suppressor/silencer you purchase. Once you decide on the suppressor or silencer you want (we can help you if you aren’t sure), we will place the order for you if we don’t have it in stock. There will be a 3-4 month waiting period until we receive your item due to a front end check that occurs. The distributor must get approval to send the suppressor/silencer to us.

If we have it in stock, we can complete and mail all of the forms necessary to submit to the ATF – for a fee of $50. The current turnaround time for the ATF to return your tax stamp is about 4 months. You are not able to take possession of the silencer/suppressor until the tax stamp is received. !

  Do you have an online store?

Yes! www.rednex-sports.info – this is a link to 5 of our distributors, and a full inventory of what they have available. The prices online will generally be less expensive than what we have in the store, for the simple fact we don’t have to process, price, or keep the items in house. Because of this, we do not match our online prices in the store, nor do we guarantee that everything we have online is available in the store.  Firearms will come to RedNex first, and if you have chosen to have the item sent to another FFL, we’ll mail it there, otherwise you will complete the VA background check here.

We have also partnered with www.galleryofguns.com to make searching for a specific firearm that much easier. Feel free to check them out.
