How to Purchase Firearms Online

Green Top Sporting Goods only sells firearms in accordance with Federal, State and Local laws. As a company policy, we will only transfer firearms to brick and mortar retailers with valid and current Federal Firearms License’s (FFL’s), not to individuals with FFL’s or online only businesses.  To insure the availability of the firearm you wish to pick up in our store, you can now buy them online.  The shipping and handling fees you will incur online will be credited back to you in the form of a Green Top Gift card.

You must be at least 18 years old to purchase long guns, and at least 21 years old to purchase handguns.

All firearms will be shipped to a brick and mortar retailer with a valid and current FFL.
