Purchase a Firearm: Concierge Firearms Dealer for Women

Fed up with the traditional gun store vibe? Us too. 

We make buying a firearm a great experience–just like shopping at at your favorite department store. 

Whether you’re looking to purchase your first firearm or your fifth (or more!), we offer a concierge buying experience especially tailored to women and particularly new shooters. 

Come in for a fitting! We’ll help you find the firearm that perfectly suits your needs and your hands. And we’ll find a holster, purse, and storage options that will give you ready access while keeping your firearm secure. 

And we’ll help you find custom range bags, sleeves, loading devices, cleaning supplies, and other accessories that will make your life so much easier!

We’re open by appointment only to best serve you. Please contact us to make an appointment for a fitting.

Come in for a Fitting!

When you come in for a fitting, we’ll sit down and talk about what you’re hoping to use the firearm for. Planning on conceal carrying? Home defense? Just want a fun firearm to practice? Perfect!

We’ll walk you through a couple of options and if we have it in stock, we’ll help fit it to your hands to make sure it is super comfortable to grip and operate.

If you have disabilities or strength issues we’ll help you with finding the perfect firearm and/or assistive devices.

Find a Holster

Finding the perfect holster can be hard with the dizzying array of options. We’ll help you find the perfect holster based on where you’re headed, what you’re wearing, and what you’re carrying!

We’ve narrowed down the options to only those holsters that actually work–for women. We’ll share what works for us and you can try on a couple in a safe, comfortable environment with our female instructors as you desire.

Find Secure Storage

We can recommend some amazing options for secure storage that keep children and others safe, while still providing ease of access for you in the event of an emergency.

We have a limited supply of items on-hand, and can order in others.

Accessorize it!

We are working to offer custom, one-of-a-kind range bags and pistol sleeves designed by a local artisan. Each one is unique, and designed to our specifications. Stay tuned!

Cleaning kits, Uplulas, targets, gun rugs, ear protection, eye protection, we’ve got it. And if we don’t, we can order it!

T-Shirts and Hoodies!

Oh, have we got a fun deal for you!

We have unique t-shirts and hoodies with “Be Your Own Damn Hero” on the front, and our signature phrase, “Don’t be an asshole!” on the sleeve. Contact us to get yours today!

Location

Our shop is located at:

27121 174th PL SE
Suite 202-C
Covington, WA 98042

We’re open on Fridays from 2-4pm, and other times by appointment.

Please email info@adventureprotection.org or call us at (978) 226-8675 to schedule an appointment!

We’re in a medical/therapy office building. Take the elevator up to the 2nd floor and turn left around the corner. At the glass doors of the dentist office, take the hallway on the right and enter at the first door on your left. Once you enter, turn right into the waiting room.

We’ll be there and waiting for you!

Please note that because this is an medical/therapy office building we ask that you ensure that all firearms are covered or thoroughly concealed. 

Purchases

When you arrive to purchase a firearm, we’ll make a copy of your driver’s license for identity verification.

You’ll fill out Federal and Washington State forms which will be used to begin the background check process.

If you’re buying a semi-automatic rifle or pistol/revolver, your purchase is subject to Washington State extended background checks, which means that the Federal and State forms will be submitted to your local law enforcement agency for processing. State law requires us to hold pistols/revolvers until the law enforcement agency approves the purchase or 10 days have elapsed, whichever comes first. Semi-automatic rifles must be held for 10 days. Unfortunately, having a CPL no longer enables same-day purchases of these firearms.

Here is a fantastic guide to the Washington State background check process.

Semi-automatic Rifles

To purchase any semi-automatic firearm you must have proof of training to satisfy I-1639 compliance. If you’ve been through our class, you should have a statement on your course certificate of completion that shows you’ve met the requirements. If you took our class before June of 2019, or haven’t taken a 1639-compliant safety course, you can take a FREE, online course provided by our good friends Sporting Systems.

Semi-automatic rifles are subject to Washington State extended background checks.

Pistols & Revolvers

Pistols and revolvers are subject to Washington State extended background checks.

Shotguns & Lever Action Rifles

At present, these firearms are not subject to the extended background checks. We can conduct an FBI NICS background check and get approval on the spot.

Transfers

If you’ve found the perfect firearm online, we’re happy to help in transferring it to you.

Transfer fees are $50/firearm.

Please, contact us before you order your firearm online. We operate by appointment only and therefore cannot accept a delivery if it isn’t on our list of expected firearms. If we have to reject it, then the shipper might charge you for return shipping and a restocking fee!

Denied Transfers

A “denied” transaction will be charged the transfer fee and the buyer has 30 days to arrange for a refund from the seller and pay any return shipping and handling if from a mail-order, or arrange for the private-party seller to claim the firearm.

Sales Taxes on Transfers

We have to collect sales taxes on commercial transactions only (i.e. if you buy the firearm from an online dealer). We do NOT charge sales taxes on transfers between private parties.

Pick Up of Transfers

We’ll call or email you letting you know that we’ve received your firearm and we’re ready for you to begin the background check process. Remember the seller’s shipping or delivery notification doesn’t necessarily mean that we’ve received it and processed it into our inventory.

Please make sure you check your email! Firearms that aren’t claimed within two weeks may be subject to storage fees of $10/week. Any firearms left over 30 days will be surrendered to us and sold.
