Firearms will be sold only to those who are eligible to buy a firearm under the government laws of the USA. Check your applicable federal, state, and local laws before attempting to acquire a firearm. Your local jurisdiction may impose an additional background-check fee or firearm tax that you will need to pay at the time of pickup.

When you receive the firearm at the FFL dealer store, please inspect the firearm before accepting the transfer. Once you complete the applicable government transfer process and accept firearm possession, the firearm cannot be returned to Beretta Gallery USA. We do not accept returns of any firearms.
