There is only so much space in a building. While our store is large, we still are not able to carry everything. To compensate for this, we are able to special order items that we do not have in store.
Just ask one of our sales associates about an item you are looking for. He or she can look it up on any of our suppliers site to see if it is in stock. If it is available, we are able to order it for you. It takes an average of 7 to 10 business days for an item to arrive, if that item is in stock. If the item you are looking for is not in stock, we can still special order it, there is just no set time frame on how long it would take to come in. To get an idea of what we might be able to order, visit our shop site shootersofcolumbus.net. This pulls from the majority of our supplier’s inventory, not ours. This just means if you see it, we can at least order it.
We have select products that are special order only. This just means that we will not carry the item in inventory but we will order it if it is available. Some examples are Rock Island, certain Kimbers, certain brands of ammo, Marlin lever actions, Magnum Research, etc.
To special order an item, we require 20% down at time of order and you have 30 days to pick up the item from the time you are called when it arrives. While you are waiting for the item to come in, you can make payments during that time or pay it off when it comes in. You also have the option of putting the item on layaway once it arrives. If the item is not currently in stock with our suppliers, we still require the 20% down to do the special order.
