Ordering & Shipping
Orders are accepted through our website, by phone, or through mail. If ordering through our website you can place your order 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you prefer to call us and place your order, you may do so during our business hours. We provide a toll free phone number for any phone orders or customer service. You can also mail in your order if you are paying by Money Order. Please note: You MUST be 18 years or older to purchase weapons.
When will my order ship?
It depends on what you ordered. We carry a lot of specialty items. Some are always in stock, some items take 4-5 days before shipping, and then there are some items that are either custom made or special ordered from other countries and can take a couple months. Once your order does ship, you are emailed a notification with a tracking number.
Generally, your order will ship when all items are in stock. If you have an order with both in stock and out of stock items, you can arrange to have your in stock items shipped by contacting our customer service department.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, PayPal, and Money Orders. Please note we do not accept American Express or Personal Checks.
*Please be aware that money orders and business checks will be held for two weeks before they are processed.*
*PayPal cannot be used on orders with items containing the words “Persian” or “Damascus.”*
Need by Dates
If you need your order by a certain date, please let us know! If you are ordering by phone, you can tell the representative who is taking your order. If you are ordering online, we have a special notes field on the first page of checkout. If we know your need by date, we can check ahead of time to make sure we will be able to deliver to you on time. Providing a need by date will not make the items ship faster, but it will let us know we need to notify you right away if something is out of stock and will not make it to you in time. If you are placing your order online, please note we do show availability on our website for your convenience.
Our website now shows stock status for all products. When you are looking at an item, just right of the picture and under the item number, you will see “Availability”. If it says In Stock, then we have the product in our warehouse. If it says “Ships in 5-7 business days” or any other shipping estimate, this means the product is out of stock. The time frame given is a general estimate of how long it should take for us to get this product back in stock, provided the item is not backordered. This date is not certain, but a general estimate. Our Availability will not state if the item is on backorder, as backorder status can change very rapidly.
Due to the special industry we are in, backorders do occur. Sometimes the demand for our specialty products is greater than the speed of production. This is how a backorder will happen. When certain items go on backorder, it means they are either still in production or queued for production and can take 30-45 days, or possibly even longer. When we become aware of a backorder, we will notify you by email with a general date of when we expect to receive the item back in our warehouse. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience this may cause.
Cancelling an Order
If you need to cancel your order for any reason, it is best to call our customer service team during business hours. You may also email this request, but please note, that your request will be processed in the order it is received, and in some cases, orders may ship before a emailed request is processed. Orders can be cancelled as long as they have not already been shipped. There is no fee to cancel an order.
Returns & Exchanges
We will take returns for up to 90 days from the ship date of your order. Any items being returned must be in original condition. This means the product cannot be worn, washed, soiled, damaged, or used in any way.
For clothing, it is fine to try it on, however, you’ll want to make sure you do not subject the item to any scents (such as perfume, smoke or any other scent that will require the garment to be washed). Make sure all accessories, such as laces, are also returned with the garment. Boots should not have any markings on the soles. Please take care and try your footwear on a carpeted or soft floor that will not scratch or mark the bottom of the shoes.
Items that are not returnable are: Tobacco Pipes, Tights and Hosen, Opened Contact Lenses, Opened Prosthetics, Costume Wigs, Earrings, Spartan/Gladiator Briefs, Wind Instruments, and Custom Items. Custom means any item that is ordered from us that is not normally on our website for sale. For example, a custom color, or custom size of a particular item.
Please be aware that we will only accept items returned for a refund within 30 days of your order’s ship date. If you are returning items for an exchange or store credit, you will receive store credit for the full amount of the returned item and there will be no restocking fee. We accept returns for exchange or store credit for 90 days after your order’s ship date. However, there is no refund with store credit. Shipping costs are not refundable. There will be a shipping fee for exchanges.
Please include a copy of your invoice or a short note with your order number and name. State if you are returning the item(s) for a refund, or if you would like to make an exchange, and if so, the items you would like to order. Please note, there will be a shipping fee for any exchanges (to ship the order to you) and we will need your credit card information. You may include this in your note or we will call you when processing your return.
When you receive your order please look at the box before opening it, if there are any dents or holes in the box and you think the contents are probably damaged or the contents are rattling, open the box and inspect the merchandise as soon as possible. All damaged items need to be reported with in 2-3 days from when you receive it. We apologize for any damages that may occur to your items in shipping, we do inspect the merchandise before shipping it and we pack it with the utmost care. Unfortunately sometimes packages do get mishandled along the way which results in breakage. We fully insure every package we ship in case UPS does damage or lose your package. We will take care of your UPS claim from start to finish. In order for us to file a UPS claim for you, you must keep all original packing as UPS will need to pick up the damaged package. UPS claims can take 1-2 weeks, after they are completed we will notify you and at that time we can refund you or send you a replacement. If you believe you are missing an item from your shipment, please call us as soon as possible. Our packing stations are under video surveillance, and we will be able to review the footage to investigate if the item is indeed missing.
If your order is shipping to any other country than the United States, then you will be subject to Customs and Duty Taxes which is imposed by your country and collected by the shipping carrier.
- All payments must be made in US funds. If you place your order through our website or by phone, your credit card will be automatically processed in US funds (your bank may charge you a fee for converting currency). If you are sending an international money order, please have your bank make it in US funds.
- You are responsible for knowing your local laws and knowing if what you are importing is legal. If you import an item that is illegal, your customs department will seize the item and we will not be able to recover it for you. Save yourself the trouble and frustration and call your customs department before ordering to see if what you are importing is legal and if you may need to obtain a special license.
- You are also responsible for any taxes or customs fees that your country may charge you. You can simply call your country’s customs department and tell them what it is you’re ordering and the cost of it, they should be able to tell you the percentage of tax you will be paying. You will be billed your custom fees when your package is being delivered by UPS. If you select UPS shipping, please note that UPS will also add a brokerage fee to your import. You have the right to choose your own brokerage firm and possibly even broker it yourself. Once you have your tracking number, you will want to give that to your brokerage firm and let UPS know you have your own brokerage firm. This will have to be handled by the receiver of the package, we are sorry, we are not able to assist you in this. If you refuse to pay your custom fees your package will not be delivered. It will be abandoned by the shipping carrier.
- Our apologies, we do not label any items as “Gifts” for customs, that is, unfortunately illegal! We will only label them as what they actually are.
