DEALER (WHOLESALE):

  1. WCArmory is a retail sales company.  Dealer (wholesale) pricing requests will not be honored, nor will the acceptance of State Sales Tax certificates.   WCArmory's experience is that most request for dealer purchases are for small amounts of product, clearly intended for personal use.  Dealers  may purchase products at retail prices, including sales tax, then write off the purchase amount including sales tax on YOUR cost of goods purchased forms rather than burden WCArmory with the required record keeping.

GUN SHOWS

WCArmory attends gun shows in the Michigan Tri-County area, per our Gun Show Schedule.  In the years we've been working the gun show circuit, we've realized a need to develop a TOS specific to gun shows.

  1. No show pre-sales to other vendors.  During the pre-show, WCArmory is busy unpacking and pricing merchandise.  Merchandise is available for purchase after the gun show doors are open.
  2. ​No tax exempt sales to other vendors as defined in the Dealer (Wholesale) paragraph of this TOS.
  3. Pricing discounts to dealers are solely up to the management of WCArmory.  For small purchases of popular items, the retail pricing of a product plus sales tax, applies to the sale price. 
  4. WCArmory reserves the right to limit and restrict the purchase quantity on any item, at any time, in order to serve all our customers.  WCArmory often pays to advertise our attendance at gun shows with a list of our popular in-stock items.  WCArmory also has a loyal customer following who pay to get into the gun show, expecting to find us and our reasonably priced items.  We make every effort to insure that we have our most desirable items available to our loyal retail purchasing public for the gun shows. 
  5. WCArmory reserves the right to refuse a sale on any item at any time.  Examples; suspected illegal intentions, one-sided low price offers by the purchaser (we are not a flea-shop vendor), rude or argumentative attitude on the part of the purchaser, or disturbing other retail customers during the purchase of items.
