Details below:

Auction Rules:

We will post 12 firearms on the front page of our web store at www.internationalshootingsupplies.com. Those firearms are the only ones involved in the auction at any given time.

The prices will be lowered daily (except when the store is closed Sunday-Monday) and the firearms will remain on the front page UNTIL

A) They are sold or
B) They hit a reserve price set and known by me (the auctioneer).

At which point they will be removed from the webstore. We will add new firearms to the auction as firearms are either sold or hit their reserve price and are removed.

A firearm is only considered SOLD once we have your payment method in hand. The best way to do this is to PHONE US at 604-588-7513 if you intend to buy. You can submit an intent to buy through the webstore but that forces us to contact you for your PAL and payment information which means that the firearm remains for sale until we have your information in hand.

There are no layaways, holds or rain checks for auction items.

All firearms are NEW SHELF MODELS. If you are concerned about condition please request photos before committing to anything. Most of the firearms are pretty flawless for shelf models but a few will have some small imperfections.

All sales are final.

The selling bid price WILL INCLUDE SHIPPING BUT NOT TAXES.

The Auction begins today Wednesday March 13th, 2019. It ends when I run out of firearms to add. 🙂

If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Regards,
Scott – The Auctioneer

Save the Children – Give Them Guns

CHILBI, KNABENSCHIESSEN, TRADITION, BRAUCH, BRAUCHTUM, VOLKSFEST,

By Scott Carpenter

Prologue:

I wrote this piece back in 2001 for Martin Masse’s Le Quebecois Libre. I have left it unedited – although there are a few things I would change today I don’t think I knew just how relevant it would be to today’s society ‘way back then’.  

I was 11 years old when my parents gave me my first real firearm. It was a Lakefield Mark II .22 caliber repeater that I still own. It’s killed a lot of squirrels and grouse in the last seventeen years and in the process I’m convinced that it — with a little help from my father — saved my life.

Of course, it never downed a charging grizzly or wounded a marauding thief. Nope. All it did was keep dad and I busy on the weekends filling the freezer with grouse and slaying errant pop cans. But those activities coupled with the sense of responsibility the ownership of such a tool entailed were enough to keep me out of a lot of trouble that other kids — mostly friends of mine — seemed to have an easy time finding.

In store and web-sales will start at 9:00 AM Pacific time on December 1st and will conclude at 3:30 PM on December 2nd.

WEB AND PHONE ORDERS PLEASE NOTE:

There is generally a line up for this sale so please note that we will serve the line up first then move to online and phone sales. Many customers will have been waiting outside overnight to get their gear and ammo. We have to take care of them first or risk getting lynched.

Also, our web store CANNOT be programmed for a sale of this size – it is older tech and does not interface with our in-store POS system which is programmed with sale pricing. If you buy online the computer will NOT take your credit card information but will cue us to pull the product for you and contact you with the information you provide. One of our sales staff will contact you over the phone for credit card (and PAL if needed) information and process your purchase in the store computer which IS programmed with sale pricing. We’ve never screwed anyone doing things this way. Buy with confidence.

Also, note that everything on sale is limited in quantity. It is first come, first serve with no layaways or rain checks on sale items. We try to update things that are sold out online as we sell them but sometimes you guys are faster than we are. It is possible that an item you order could be out of stock by the time we get to it. We will notify you via phone either way.

Please be aware that we don’t backorder out of stock items on sales and only ever charge your credit card for what is available to ship. Shipping quotes may also be requested before shipping ammunition. Quotes will be given before ammunition is charged to your card if you require it.

FINALLY – there is more inventory in the store than there is room on the website by a  wide margin. There may be things you are looking for which we have that are not listed. Please feel free to call and ask. We are old fashioned and still like to talk to our customers on the phone.

A new, more modern system is in the works. Thanks for your understanding and thanks to everyone for their continued support. We value everyone’s business and do our best to run ours on a policy of honesty and integrity.

From all of us here at International Shooting Supplies Ltd, we appreciate your business!
