BUY & TRADE SERVICES – Selling or Trading your Firearm
Triangle Shooting Academy is always looking to add to our Used Firearm Selection. If you have a firearm you are interested in selling or using as a trade, please make sure that you follow the below criteria.
- Make sure the firearm is unloaded and cased prior to bringing it inside the facility
- Bring any original boxes, manuals, or other materials that were originally sold with it. These items increase the value of the firearm.
- Bring any additional firearm accessories you wish to sell with the firearm.
- We do not purchase or accept ammunition from guests. If you do not want any ammunition, you may surrender it over to us to be destroyed.
- Please bring in your firearm during a weekday. This will ensure we have enough time to evaluate your firearm and provide you with an appropriate offer. During peak times, guests who wish to sell or trade their firearm may have to wait until an approved Team Member is available to appraise your firearm.
- Quotes and estimates cannot be given over the phone or the internet.
- Triangle Shooting Academy has the right to refuse the purchase of any firearm. Reasons we may not purchase a firearm include but are not limited to the condition of the firearm or the firearm/caliber is not in demand.
Once a price has been agreed on, guests will receive their payment by in-store credit or by check. In-store credit will always be issued the same day. Payment by check is typically the same day, however, in some cases, check payments may be delayed until an available manager can issue it. Cash payment is not an option currently.
