Shipping & Returns

COVID-19 Update

(Updated May 21, 2020 @ 11:00 EST)

As of Tuesday, May 19th, 2020, in accordance with the framework for reopening Ontario, Shooters Direct will again be offering local pickup by appointment. We expect this to last well into the summer. We are constantly assessing our ability to ship orders with the Canpar and Canada Post. Currently we are still able to ship orders unaffected. 


Thanks for your understanding. Check back for updates.





Certain details are required when purchasing controlled items from our website such as: firearms or ammunition. These details can include your Firearms Licence Number, Date of Birth, City of Birth and current Club Name to which you belong. You will be asked to provide these during checkout to avoid delays in processing your order. If such details were not entered, our team will contact you to complete the order. If after several attempts contact cannot be made or you are unable to provide these details, your order will be refunded.

Purchases requiring additional information during checkout:

Non-Restricted Firearm or Ammunition: Firearms Licence Number and Date of Birth

Restricted Firearm: Firearms Licence Number, Date of Birth, City of Birth and Club Name



All orders excluding restricted firearms can be shipped out by the next business day. If ordered early enough we can even have them shipped out the same business day!

Orders that include a restricted firearm need additional processing time for the Canadian Firearms Centre to transfer the registration of the firearm to the buyer. Depending on the province in which you reside, this can range from 1 business day to 1 week. When a restricted firearm is purchased, we will do our best to initiate the transfer as soon as possible; in most cases within a few hours. Similarly, when the transfer is complete we will do our best to get it shipped the same day.

All orders containing a firearm or ammunition will be shipped requiring a signature on delivery. Ammunition cannot be shipped using Canada Post as per their regulations. Ammunition will be shipped via Canpar, UPS, FedEx or similar.

Make sure to inspect your package for obvious shipping damage before accepting it. If it is clearly damaged, you should refuse the package and we will promptly send you a replacement order while dealing with the initial damaged one.

Orders that are $200 and above (before taxes and shipping) are entitled to FREE Canada wide shipping* 

*Some exclusions of very remote locations in our large country do apply (i.e. Yukon, NWT, Nunavut). We will do our best to carry some of the cost!
