A:No, but we can point you in the right direction for a gunsmith in your area.
Q:What are your hours?
A:Berks Firearms is located in Lower Alsace Township, just a a few minutes from Reading, PA.
A:It's Latin for "Arm Yourself and Defend Liberty". We believe in the 2nd Amendment and the right of the people to keep and bear arms. We feel it's crucial for people to exercise the freedoms granted to us by the Authors of the Constitution, lest they be taken for granted and eventually lost.
A:Once you make the purchase, advise the seller that you will be using Berks Firearms for disposition of your item. Provide them with our phone number (610-779-4240) and/or e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org). Alternately, you can pass the seller's information to us, including name, phone number, e-mail address, and auction / order number. We will take care of the rest. When we receive your item, we will contact you to schedule an appointment to come in, fill out the required paperwork, and have a background check completed. After that, you leave with your firearm. It's that simple.
A:No and no. We no longer stock any inventory (guns, parts, accessories, etc.) and we don't order in. We exclusively deal in person-t0-person transfers and receipt and transfer of firearms for internet purchases by our customers.
A:No. A firearm can be lawfully transported unloaded and in a secure wrapper from the place of purchase to the buyer's home. A permit IS required for the purpose of carrying a firearm concealed on his/her person or in a vehicle.
A:We are not a conventional "gun shop". We do all transfer transactions strictly by appointment only. Once we receive your internet order, we'll make every attempt to contact you and bring you in for an appointment as soon as is mutually convenient.
