Terms and Conditions
Dealer Fee/ Appointment Fee:
Baker Firearms operates by appointment only. Appointments to transfer a firearm are $60 and last exactly as long as it takes to transfer a firearm. Appointments to transfer ammunition are $20 or 20% of the online retailers invoice total, whichever is greater, appointments to transfer ammunition last exactly as long as it takes to transfer ammunition. Multiple firearms will require multiple appointments which swill be consecutive time slots. Transactions will be done back to back for the sake of efficiency and to save the prospective purchaser from being subjected to multiple state imposed Dealer Record Of Sale (D.R.O.S.) fees. Should a prospective firearm(s) purchaser buy firearm(s) or ammunition online and have them shipped to Baker Firearms the prospective purchaser will be notified upon their order's arrival and an appointment will be made so that the prospective purchaser can come in and fill out paperwork and or start the 10 day waiting period. In the event that the prospective purchaser misses three appointments, their firearm(s) and or ammunition will be shipped back to the online retailer (COD) from which the firearm(s) and or ammunition were purchased. Shipping will take place only after any applicable dealer fees/ storage fees have been paid. All dealer fees apply for missed appointments. If you need to re schedule or cancel your appointment you must contact Baker Firearms no later than 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.
Online Purchases that AREN'T California Compliant
Should a prospective purchaser purchase an unsafe handgun (off roster) or other firearm that isn't approved for sale in California from an online retailer and the prospective purchaser does not have a valid exemption, the firearm will need to be returned to the online retailer as it is not lawful for Baker Firearms to transfer the firearm to the prospective purchaser. Baker Firearms will only ship the firearm back to the retailer after a $60 fee is paid to Baker Firearms. Storage fees will apply (See above storage fee policy). Baker Firearms will not be held responsible for return shipping fees or liability for the item(s) during transit. It is the purchasers responsibility to know what is legal to purchase before the purchase has been made. Please contact us if you are unsure. Information on what is approved for sale can be found on our FAQ page, Please read it.
PC 27535 (a) prohibits a person from purchasing more than one handgun or semiautomatic centerfire rifle within any 30-day period. This subdivision does not authorize a person to make an application to purchase both a handgun and semiautomatic centerfire rifle within the same 30-day period.

Background Check results returned as "undetermined"
The California Department of Justice is authorized by Penal Code section 28220 to temporarily delay a firearm transaction for up to 30 days from the date of transaction if the Department is unable to immediately determine the purchaser's eligibility to own/possess firearms. If 30 days has passed since the transaction date and the Department is still unable to determine the purchaser’s eligibility to own/possess firearms, or whether the firearm involved in the sale/transfer is stolen, the Department will notify the dealer. It will then be at the dealer’s sole discretion whether or not to release the firearm to the prospective firearms purchaser. Baker Firearms is committed to firearms safety and community safety and has a "do not deliver" policy in place that it will adhere to should the CA DOJ return an "undetermined" result on an eligibility check.
If you believe there is a discrepancy in your eligibility to own/possess firearms, you can obtain a copy of your California record by completing the Request for Live Scan (BOF 8016RR) form located on the Department’s website: http://oag.ca.gov/firearms/forms. You should review the record, identify any incomplete or missing court information, and then follow up with the court where your case was held and request the court submit corrected information to the DOJ's Bureau of Criminal Information and Analysis (BCIA). If you disagree with any information in your record, you should follow the instructions in the letter for disputing inaccuracies. You may wish to obtain an attorney for legal advice and who can best represent your interests on how to restore your rights to buy firearms.

Be Aware of Scams
Baker Firearms is aware of scammers attempting to use our warehouse address to validate their claims of legitimacy. Baker Firearms is working with the FTC to have this website removed. As with anything online, if there is no contact phone number listed, and the "seller" demands payment via Bitcoin, Gift Cards, or Pay Pal friends and family, it's highly likely a scam. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it likely is.
