A. At this time we do not ship ammunition to anyone in the following states:
California; New Jersey; New York; Massachusetts; Connecticut; Hawaii; District of Columbia; Illinois
Reasons vary, if a city, state, locality, or county has a law we use the same law for the entire state. Our software currently does not have a way to differentiate allowed entities, differentiate zip codes and certain regions, verify ages, capture foid or DL's and capture other required information needed in an expedited and accurate manner to maintain our compliance. This is regardless of FFL, FOID, or Law Enforcement exemptions, We currently do not take exception to this, but hope to add some of these states back in the future as our software and processes are enhanced.
