CDS ARMS, LLC / FREEDOM SECURITY strives to make buying from us as easy and seamless as possible, however there are some things to know. Doing business with us implicitly states you have read and agree to our terms and conditions.
TAXES & FEES
As a retail business in Pennsylvania we must collect 6% sales tax on items sold to other residents of PA, or items sold to anyone in person in the state of PA. If we are attending and selling at a gun show in Allegheny County the sales tax is 7%. For firearms sales we must collect the $5 Pennsylvania Instant Check System (PICS) fee for background checks. We do not collect sales tax for purchases made out of state by the buyer and sent to us for transfer. Fees on products and services are non-refundable. Fees for transfer type services are due in cash before the transfer paperwork is commenced, and are non-refundable despite the outcome.
CDS ARMS, LLC does not assume any liability for any harm caused by improper use of products purchased from CDS ARMS. You agree not to hold CDS ARMS liable for any such harms caused by improper use, installation, or maintenance performed by you or by any other entity. We recommend consulting with a professional gunsmith before performing any installation or maintenance of firearms on your own. By placing an order through CDS ARMS you confirm that you are of legal age to purchase firearms. You further confirm that you are legally allowed to purchase firearms; that you have not committed any act or are not under any condition whereas purchasing and possession of firearms by you may be deemed illegal. By placing an order through CDS ARMS, you confirm that you are not entering in any kind of activity that may be viewed as illegal by any federal, state, or local laws and regulations; and that you are not committing any act of felony.
CDS ARMS, LLC does not take any responsibility or liability for any complications arising from the federal and/or state mandated checks. You agree not to hold CDS ARMS liable for any consequences resulted from ignorance of the law or deliberate disregard for it. CDS ARMS will take all reasonable measures to inform the buyer about legalities concerning each product and not sell and/or ship items where prohibited. However, you agree that the final burden falls with the buyer.
GENERAL TERMS FOR FIREARM SALES & TRANSFERS
Much like a new car, you can’t “return” a firearm; all firearm sales are final.
All firearms sales and/or transfers will be recorded per federal law and all buyers/transferees will be required to submit to a PICS background check.
If you are put into a wait period from PICS your firearms will be safely stored at CDS ARMS until the state of PA has approved the PICS check.
In the event of a PICS denial for your purchase of an in-stock firearm, you will simply need to pay the $25 fee for the denied transfer and you will receive a refund of the rest of the purchase price. All deposits for a special order firearm are non-refundable.
In the event of a PICS denial for your transfer, the firearm will not be transferred and you will have seven days to arrange an alternate disposition for the firearm(s). The ONLY options are to send it back to the seller (if they allow) at your cost or leave the item for sale on consignment with CDS ARMS. Any other option constitutes a straw purchase in the eyes of the BATFE, so no local sales to husband, wife, brother, sister, friend, etc. For any transfers, the cash transfer fee is non-refundable regardless of the outcome. We have to pay the state approved or denied, so you need to pay us.
Please do not try to buy a firearm if you know you cannot pass the mandatory PICS background check. Please do not waste both our time. It is a felony to try and purchase a firearm if you are denied the privilege, or to buy a firearm for someone else who is unable to buy themselves (STRAW PURCHASE).
CDS ARMS, LLC reserves the right to refuse a purchase to any person or persons for any reason. This is a federally acknowledged right of a Federal Firearms Licensee. CDS ARMS must abide by all federal, state, and local laws concerning the sale of firearms and all other products we carry. We know the appropriate laws in the state of Pennsylvania, however it is the responsibility of the buyer to know the correct information for their home state. Please do not buy unapproved guns, high capacity magazines, or other contraband items in your state if it is illegal where you live. Please don’t ask us to break the law; we enjoy our freedoms too much!
