We strongly recommend that, as you read this User Agreement, you also access and read the information contained in the other pages and web sites referred to in this document, as they may contain further terms and conditions that apply to you as a ShootersXchange.com user.  Please note: underlined words and phrases are links to these pages and web sites.

Our services are available only to individuals who can legally purchase firearms and form legally binding contracts under applicable law.  Our services are not available to minors, convicted felons, or anyone else prevented by law or court order from purchasing firearms, ammunition or shooting accessories or to any individual or individuals who has been banned from using ShootersXchange.com by ShootersXchange.com management.

ShootersXchange.com is a venue.
ShootersXchange.com is a venue that allows users to find and buy items from other users of the site.  While we provide the means to do so, we are not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers.

Because we are a venue, ShootersXchange.com makes no guarantee that any seller or ad on our system is legitimate. It is the buyer's responsibility to verify that the seller and item actually exist and that the item will be sent.  Our site acts as a venue to allow anyone to offer, sell, and buy firearms and shooting related items and accessories.  We are not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers.   As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to buy items. We cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction.

Non-US Buyer/Sellers
Buyers and sellers from countries other than the United States of America are welcome on ShootersXchange.com.  Applicable laws and regulations of the countries of residence of both buyer and seller must be followed for the purchase and transfer of firearms and other items. Non-US sellers are allowed to list items on ShootersXchange.com.  Applicable laws of the countries of residence of both buyer and seller must be followed and non-us sellers must disclose their county of residence and, if different, the country in which the item is located in the description portion of the listing.  In addition to abiding by all US federal, state and local laws governing the sale and purchase of firearms, U.S. Customs regulations apply to the importation and exportation of firearms . Failure to file the proper paperwork before shipping the item will result in the firearm being confiscated by U.S. Customs.  Those residing in countries with which the United States Government has current trade embargos are forbidden to use this site.   Buyers and sellers are forbidden to do business through ShootersXchange.com with anyone from or residing in those countries.  If you buy or sell internationally, it is YOUR responsibility to stay current with international firearms laws and embargoed countries.  Remember, YOU are responsible for obeying the law.
