How to buy a gun from WBT

Thanks for considering a purchase with us. Please use the following as a guide. Buying a firearm online can be intimidating. We are a real store.  We have a storefront in La Mesa, CA( Just a few hundred yards east of San Diego).

We created this guide to put everyone at ease and make sure we are all on the same page. Please read all of it. 

A few things to be aware of:

All of our firearms are CA Legal. They are made legal out of state and we use a variety of methods to make this happen including Kydex grip wraps, pinned stocks, removed flash hiders, mag locks, welded muzzle extensions, 10rd mags & anything else needed to make a firearm CA Legal. 

To make all of this happen and comply with the strict CA laws, it usually takes several weeks to get your order to you. Our team works hard, usually 6 days a week to make this happen. Please be patient. We are often the only supplier of many models of firearms for CA. We promise there is never an intentional delay.

All firearms must ship to a licensed gun store(FFL) for the transfer in your area, OR you must come to our San Diego store to do the background(DROS). If you plan on making the drive to San Diego, please be advised, the DROS process in California involves a 10 day wait so it actually takes 2 trips.Please read these DROS requirements for WBT. WBT DROS REQUIREMENTS

Use this either of these links to find a gun store near you. FFL FINDER or FFL FINDER. If you are unsure of someone in your area, call us, we can help. If you designate an FFL, please reach out to them and tell them about the transfer coming their way. If they have questions about the legality of a gun, please ask us for help if need be. We have to get a copy of their Federal Firearms License before we can ship your firearm. We handle that part of the deal, but it usually helps when they know its coming. If your shop does not respond to our requests for their license, it will delay the shipment of your firearm. 

Please be advised: Most gun stores charge a transfer fee plus the DROS(Background check) of $25. Please check with your local dealer about that cost. Most dealers are $40-$80.

Your firearm will ship via Fedex to your local dealer. You will get a tracking number. Please give the shop a few days to call you before showing up. It takes some time for them to get your gun processed in.
