Firearm Hold Policies:

7 Day Holds:

These 7 day holds are specifically designed to let you decide whether you really want this gun or to do more research on it. If you’re not local to our store it also gives you the same opportunities. It costs no money

These holds will be cancelled after the 7th day is over (we’re open 7 days a week),  and put back on display for someone else to potentially purchase. Please note that we will not contact you in the event that we cancel your 7 day hold.

You can either call with the firearm’s information (make, model, used gun code, KTP New Firearm SKU#, Manufacturer’s Product Number, Etc.) or submit inquiries through each firearm listing on our website.

Should you want to have the firearm on hold for more than 7 days we would require a 20% deposit to hold it for 60 days.


60 Day Hold/Layaway:

These holds take some commitment as they are REFUNDABLE IN-STORE CREDIT ONLY (a gift card).

To start you are required to put down a minimum of 20% as a deposit. These holds have been designed in order to give our customers a little more time to pay for the items they wish to purchase without the initial large blow to the wallet by making a firearm purchase.

They’re also designed in order to give our customers more time to come to the store for purchase or to line up a local FFL (dealer) for the transfer should you not live local to our location. Click HERE to learn more about purchasing a firearm.

We accept certified funds (cashier’s checks, treasurer’s checks, USPS money orders, etc.) or credit cards. We do not keep credit card information on file so please call with payment each time you would like to put more money towards your Hold/Layaway. There is no payment schedule within the 60 days; it is pay on your terms!

Should your paid hold/layaway go past the 60 days we will contact you by mail, (no passenger pigeons… sorry,) in order to let you know that your hold is due or has been due. If you do not contact us back within 14 days from the date of the letter, we will cancel your hold/layaway and mail you a Kittery Trading Post gift card (please make sure we have your most up to date mailing address and contact information).

Should you have any further questions about 7 day or 60 day holds please do not hesitate to call 1-800-USA-GUNS or EMAIL. We’re always more than happy to help!
