We are located in Richland, WA off Van Giesen near the Yakima River Bridge going into West Richland. Call for directions to the shop. (509) 554-8401 or email wafirearms@gmail.com

; Forget the middleman, YOU can now make Internet purchases direct. Why pay a "markup" to a gun shop when you can purchase firearms direct from the same suppliers?

WA Arms is licensed to process required Federal Firearms Transfers (Form 4473) and to access the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) maintained by the FBI. Our computer link connects directly with the FBI Database and can provide instant Background Checks in less than 1-miunte.

After you place your mail-order (via the Internet or telephone) the firearm is delivered the next business day and will be ready for pickup; you need only to pay a nominal $25 Professional Service fee for the Federal Form 4473 (Firearms Transaction Record) and receive a "PROCEED" notification from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

If you are purchasing a Handgun, WA Stare Law requires that the local Law Enforcement Agency (LEA) conduct a background check and provides for a 5-day waiting period before the Buyer can take possession of the handgun. If you already have a WA State Cancelled Pistol License, the handgun can be delivered as soon as the Federal Firearms Transfers (Form 4473) is completed and a "PROCEED" notification from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System is received.
