Shipping Information

Priority Shipping: This time of year Priority Shipping is at about 4 - 6 days days total (24 hours for dispatch and 3-5 days for delivery). This time of year USPS gets a bit overwhelmed and there will always be exceptions- it is possible your order will take a day to two more than stated. Please plan accordingly and be patient. UPS and FedEx operate on their normal schedules (delivery between 2-6 days depending on your location relative to us), but please plan on an extra day for dispatch.

Although we cannot make any absolute guarantees about shipping times during the holidays we will do our best to get orders to you in time. We wish everyone the very best. Please remember that even if a package doesn't make it in time, Christmas is a time for love, understanding and peace. :)

Tracking Orders: Please note that items shipped USPS do not have guaranteed delivery times. They will come with Delivery Confirmation. In some cases this can be used to track a package, but generally during the holidays the package will only be scanned upon reaching its destination. If you would like comprehensive tracking with your order we strongly suggest using the UPS option at checkout.

This page is designed to answer all your shipping questions. If it doesn't just fire us an email. For further assistance please visit our HELP page.

General Shipping Information

We ship primarily USPS and UPS. If you prefer FedEx please CONTACT US. Our Shipping Department is closed on the weekends (Saturday & Sunday) and on all Federal Holidays, so any orders placed during the weekend or on a Federal Holiday will ship the following business day. Limited circumstances may also delay dispatch time (i.e. combined orders, order verification, high volume, etc).

Note: Some items cannot be shipped via USPS (i.e. Zippo fuel, Pepper Sprays, certain knives, etc) and we reserve the right to modify your shipping selection if necessary.

If you have specific shipping needs we suggest you CONTACT US us prior to placing your order. We can generally accommodate most needs (i.e. overnight shipping).

Most orders are shipped with no signature required. If you have a specific preference (i.e. "I want a signature required" or "I don't want a signature required") please let us know in the comment box at checkout.

At this time, our international shipping is limited to CANADA only. In the future we may expand and begin shipping to other countries.

Some items we sell are restricted in certain areas. Please make sure you understand our TERMS & CONDITIONS (you will be required to agree to them before you can place an order).


Please note: There are some areas within the USA where we simply cannot ship certain restricted items (i.e. defense sprays, automatic knives, stun guns, knuckles, police batons, etc). These areas include, but are not limited to, portions of Illinois, California, Massachusetts, New York, Maryland, New Jersey, and Washington D.C. Exceptions are made as local laws permit (proper ID may be required at the time of purchase).

If your order is more than $49 then shipping is free if you choose the "free shipping" option (we will ship via the most cost effective method).*
