How To Buy

Purchasing a firearm is relatively easy to do, whether it is your first firearm or not. No state permit or license is required in the state of Ohio, since there is no firearm registration in this state. Ohio also does not have waiting periods on firearm purchases.

Once you've decided which firearm(s) you'd like to buy, the rest of the process takes only about 15 minutes.

To purchase a handgun at Black Wing Shooting Center:

  • You must be 21 years of age or older
  • You must fill out a Form 4473 to be used for your instant background check.
  • You must show your driver's license or state I.D. with current address on either form of identification
  • Anyone who is 21 or older and a resident of Ohio may purchase a handgun in the state of Ohio and take possession of it once the background check is passed.
  • Anyone who is 21 or older and not a resident of Ohio may purchase a handgun in this state; however, you may not take possession of the handgun here. The handgun must be shipped to an FFL holder (Federal Firearm License) in your state of residence.

We Buy, Sell, Trade & Appraise Your Firearms

Black Wing offers fair pricing for anyone interested in selling or trading their firearms to us. However, without seeing your specific firearm, we cannot provide you with an honest quote. Please bring your unloaded and cased firearm on your next visit and we will gladly provide you a quote and let you know how we arrived at the price.

 

We also offer our guests a Consignment service. Consignments allow you to get closer to a Retail price out of your firearm than selling it to us or trading it.  

Consignment Fees

  • Firearms - In store 20% or $50 whichever is greater.
  • Internet listings 25% plus fees.
  • Non-firearms - 25% or $50 whichever is greater.
  • You may choose to have payment by check or store credit.
  • All payments are processed during the first week of the month after the consigned firearm has sold.

 

Black Wing also provides valuations for insurance and estate planning purposes documented on letterhead. Valuation fee is $100 for first firearm and $25 for each firearm thereafter.

 

 

Firearm Transfers

Black Wing always hopes you check with us first to see if we have the firearm you are looking for. We know it seems convenient to make purchases online but sometimes that is not always the case when you look at the big picture. With the absence of shipping costs and transfer fees, we may be able to save you some hard earned money. Even if we do not have what you are looking for in stock, chances are good we can get it! And remember, if we sell it to you, it comes with our free, no hassle, Lifetime Warranty!

If you have purchased a firearm from some where else and would like to have it transferred to Black Wing, we require the firearm to be transferred to us from an FFL. The information we will require from them is:

  • Your name and contact information (phone number and valid email address) so that we may contact you when your transfer is ready to be picked up.
  • Make, model and serial number of firearm being transferred
  • A copy of their valid FFL

Once we have received your firearm, we will need to receive it into our inventory. Normally this means once your tracking information shows your firearm has arrived at Black Wing, it will still take approximately 2 business days for us to have your firearm ready to be picked up. We will contact you at that time to let you know it is ready.

When you arrive to pick up your new firearm, please remember to have a valid state or government issued ID with you, that has your correct address on it. You will then fill out an electronic 4473, which will run your background check. Once you have successfully completed this process and paid your transfer fee, the firearm is yours to take home.

 Firearm Transfers

  • Non-Class III - $50/ incoming and $50/outgoing plus shipping/handling/insurance
  • Class III Transfers - $200 per serial number

 

Please Note: Black Wing takes no responsibility for firearms damaged during shipping, nor do we warranty transferred firearms and shall not repair or modify any firearm before it is transferred.
