We understand your frustration surrounding recent announcements regarding how firearm purchases will be categorized by credit card companies.
If you're uncomfortable using a credit card to order from us online, we'll be accepting personal checks, cashier's checks, money orders, and ACH payments for all online orders going forward.
Heck, we'll even take an envelope full of cash if you send one (though we don't recommend it).
For more info regarding how we handle money orders and checks, click here.

Rumor is some independent gun stores are now installing 'independently owned' ATMs inside their stores so customers have the option to get cash advances and pay with cash.

I don't see how that will work.  Most ATMs only allow a few hundred max withdrawl per transaction and have a per day limit well under the price of a firearm.

There is a two factors to that, what your bank allows (you can set and adjust this with a call) and what the ATM allows.  I would guess any store that has one of these ATMs installed will request it has a much higher daily limit than your run of the mill machines, and then anyone that wants to use it should call their bank in advance and make sure they have a high enough daily withdrawl limit.

 

I ran into this issue when buying a car with cash years ago on a Sunday out of state, hit my daily limit instantly, called the debit card number, bumped my daily limit up, then proceeded to hit up several ATMs in town until I got what I needed 🤣  Most banks have a $300-$500 daily limit by default to help with losses when cards are stolen, but you can adjust that with a call to the bank, I have mine set much higher after that car experience, as the $500 it was set at in todays world is chump change, especially when out of town on vacation doing things and many tourist attractions appreciate cash, especially for tips.

 

Beyond that, small ammo purchases and many accessories will still be able to be bought with many peoples normal limits.

Get $200 or $300 as a cash down payment and bring the balance when you pick it up..

I also see it says Visa, Mastercard and American Express, does that mean Discover is not participating in this?  It may be time to break out the Discover card for all online gun and ammo purchases.

 I'm curious too. I have a Discover I use frequently though not exclusively and would happily make it exclusive to avoid any of this nonsense.

“We do not believe private companies should serve as moral arbiters,” Visa said. “Asking private companies to decide what legal products or services can or cannot be bought and from what store sets a dangerous precedent. Further, it would be an invasion of consumers’ privacy for banks and payment networks to know each of our most personal purchasing habits. Visa is firmly against this.”

 

....But we are implementing it anyway because the ATF/politicians asked nicely.

Hugz N Kisses, VISA
