Are you allowed to own a firearm?


Outdoor Arms follows all requirements and rules set forth by the ATF and the state of Virginia in order to take legal possession of a firearm.

To save time and hassle, please make sure you are allowed to own a firearm.  The following are requirements in order to be authorized to own a firearm.  

  • You must at least 18 years of age for a long gun and 21 for a handgun.                                  
  • You must be the actual transferee / buyer of the firearm.

Now ask yourself...

  • Are you under indictment or information in any court for a felony or any other crime for which a judge could imprison you for more than one year?
  • Have you been convicted in any court of a felony, or any other crime for which the judge could have imprisoned you for more than one year, even if you received a shorter sentence?
  • Are you a fugitive from justice?
  • Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana, or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug or any other controlled substance?
  • Have you ever been adjudicated as a mental defective OR have you ever been committed to a mental institution?
  • Have you been discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions?
  • Are you subject to a court order restraining you from harassing, stalking, or threatening your child or intimate partner or child of such partner?
  • Have you ever been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence?
  • Are you a United States citizen?
  • Have you ever renounced your United States citizenship?
  • Are you an alien illegally or unlawfully in the United States?  

If you answer yes to ANY of these questions, you may not be able to own a firearm.  I would recommend reaching out PRIOR to purchasing the firearm.
