I understand it is my full responsibility to make sure the firearm, ammunition or accessories I am purchasing is legal for me to own in my state or jurisdiction. (Check your local and state laws here: https://www.atf.gov/firearms/state-laws-and-published-ordinances-firearms-32nd-edition) I further agree that any disputes will be governed by the laws of the State of Illinois and that any proceedings will take place in Coles County. By checking the Terms & Conditions box below I agree that I am legally allowed to own the items in my shopping cart as detailed above. If you ship your firearm to a Rural King store, there is no FFL Transfer Fee. Any applicable state required fees will still apply even if the firearm is shipped to a Rural King Store.
I certify that I have read and agree to the following safety rules when handling a firearm, ammunition or firearm accessory: http://training.nra.org/nra-gun-safety-rules.aspx
1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause injury or damage. The key to this rule is to control where the muzzle or front end of the barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.
2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
When holding a gun, rest your finger on the trigger guard or along the side of the gun. Until you are actually ready to fire, do not touch the trigger.
3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.
Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately engage the safety device if possible, and, if the gun has a magazine, remove it before opening the action and looking into the chamber(s) which should be clear of ammunition. If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s), leave the gun alone and get help from someone who does.
When using or storing a gun, always follow these NRA rules:
* Know your target and what is beyond.
Be absolutely sure you have identified your target beyond any doubt. Equally important, be aware of the area beyond your target. This means observing your prospective area of fire before you shoot. Never fire in a direction in which there are people or any other potential for mishap. Think first. Shoot second.
* Know how to use the gun safely.
Before handling a gun, learn how it operates. Know its basic parts, how to safely open and close the action and remove any ammunition from the gun or magazine. Remember, a gun’s mechanical safety device is never foolproof. Nothing can ever replace safe gun handling.
* Be sure the gun is safe to operate.
Just like other tools, guns need regular maintenance to remain operable. Regular cleaning and proper storage are a part of the gun’s general upkeep. If there is any question concerning a gun’s ability to function, a knowledgeable gunsmith should look at it.
* Use only the correct ammunition for your gun.
Shipping & Delivery:
All firearms will be shipped to an FFL dealer specified by you. We cannot ship any firearms directly to you.
