Frequently Asked Questions
WBT IS NOT SHUT DOWN!
You can still purchase a firearm via our website. We are backed up. There will be delays, but the faster you place an order, the faster we can get you in for the DROS. We completely understand the need for a firearm at this point in time. We are doing everything in our power to fulfill all orders as fast as possible, but please understand our order volume has gone up well over 1000%. We will work tirelessly to ensure you can defend your family should the need arise, but understand we also have families and are going through much of the same stress you are. Please be patient with us!
WBT Has 2 goals during the COVID-19 Situation:
1. Keep you and our staff safe.
2. Ensure the efficient, lawful delivery of firearms to our customers.
With the situation rapidly changing we are now appointment only for orders placed via our website. If you wish to make a purchase, please do so via this website. We will not respond to phone calls at this time. We are trying to keep up with emails and live chat messages. The volume of emails/messages is at times more than humanly possible to manage!
WBT staff will contact you to make the appointment for your order. Please do not show up without an appointment. You will be turned away. There are NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS POLICY.
We can only allow 1-2 people in our store at a time. Please do not enter unless invited in. Please show up on time for your appointment. If you are more than 5-10 mins late, your appointment will be cancelled and the next person in line will be allowed in.
If you are early for your appointment, we ask that you wait patiently in your car to avoid a crowd near our entrance.
We really appreciate the patronage during these trying times. We care about our customers and are working as hard as we can to get orders out as fast as we can. WBT has had a great level of responsibility thrust onto our shoulders in the last week; Ensuring you can protect yourself and your loved ones by exercising your 2nd Amendment right. We take that seriously and will do everything in our power to ensure your order gets to you as soon as possible.
Buying a Firearm
Question: How can I buy a gun from WBT?
Answer: Refer to the “How to buy a gun guide” here: Buying a gun from WBT
Question: I want to buy a gun from you, but I prefer to do it in person or on the phone. Can I come visit or call your San Diego location to complete the transaction?
Answer: Yes, we enjoy face to face and over the phone transactions! Please contact us. We are open Mon-Friday 10am-5pm and by appointment only on some Saturdays.
Question: Do you accept Transfers?
Answer: Yes, please visit our TRANSFER page for more information.
Question: Do you have everything on your website in stock at your San Diego store? If a product has “add to cart” does that mean you have it at your San Diego location?
Answer: Long and short, no. While a product that shows in stock is 100% available for purchase, it may not be at our San Diego location for viewing. Sorry! We understand many people like to purchase after getting their hands on a product, but due to the sheer number of firearms we offer for sale its an impossible task. Call us before you drive a few hours. Many of our rifles are stored out of CA and are not converted to be CA compliant until an order is placed.
Question: How do you make my gun California Legal?
Answer: For the most part, AR style rifles will come with magazine lock. Almost all other firearms will come “featureless” using some sort of “grip fin,” no flash hider, no collapsing or telescoping stock, and no forward grip. Contact us for more details per gun if you have any questions or concerns. We are always happy to discuss!
Question: Can WBT get me off roster pistols?
Answer: No, there is nothing WBT can do to circumnavigate the DOJ roster regarding Semi-Automatics pistols such as Gen 4 or Gen 5 Glocks. We can get certain off roster revolvers by making them single action.
Question: Can I have a magazine that holds more than 10rds?
Answer: No, we cannot transfer a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds. We will ship your gun with a 10 round magazine that may have been modified and may not be the OEM magazine.
Question: Can WBT get me a shockwave or similar shotgun?
Answer: No, CA law prohibits any shotgun with a barrel under 18inches. This includes the Taurus Judge and other handguns that are designed to fire a shotgun shell.
Question: Once I take delivery of my firearm, can I then remove the modifications done?
Answer: NO! We deliver firearms in a CA legal configuration. Removing or modification of compliance parts will result in your rifle being illegal. Same goes for blocked magazines. They must not hold more than 10rds.
Question: Why can’t you price match Budsgunshop or other online retailers?
Answer: WBT does everything it can to keep prices as low as possible but please remember, we are in San Diego, CA. We have to pay California wages, overhead, utilities and other expenses that our oppressive CA government places on small businesses. We are also required to have your rifle/shotgun modified out of state to meet CA laws. We either block or provide a 10rd magazine. All of these factors contribute to a higher price than a company selling a non-CA legal rifle in a “free state.” We appreciate the patronage from CA customers. We are in this fight together, and your support goes a long way! With all that said, please contact us about price matching. We will do everything we can to work with you after considering shipping, a transfer fee, compliance and magazine needs. It never hurts to ask!
Question: I don’t see the product I want on your website. Can you get it for me?
Answer: Yes, please CONTACT US and we will make every effort to get. We are constantly adding new products to our website.
Question: When will product XXX come back in stock? Can you give me a date for resupply?
Answer: We don't really ever know when products become available from our suppliers. Its hard to give a response because the honest truth is, we don't know until the day they come back available at our supplier(s)
Question: What are the DROS(Background Check) requirements?
DROS(Dealer Record Of Sale) is the background check process in California. It requires you and your firearm to be physically present at a licensed gun store to complete. Please CLICK HERE for the WBT DROS requirements. Please contact your local gun store about their policies as every store is a little different.
