We limit our class sizes to provide an exceptional and individualized experience for each student. Once a class is scheduled, resources are committed, instructors are assigned, classroom/range availability are arranged, and numerous other costs associated with the class are incurred based on the number of students who register for the class. These commitments are the same, even when students who have registered don’t show up for a class. Additionally, some of our classes don’t have enough room for everyone that wants to attend. Overflow students are placed on a waitlist to be called when a registered student needs to cancel and open up a seat in the class.
In order to adequately prepare for our classes, we require prepayment and pre-registration for all training courses.

SharpShooters USA Skill Builder Cancellation/Refund Policy
Because we keep these classes extremely small and they usually have a wait list, Skill Builders require a minimum of twenty-four (24 hours) notice to cancel or change dates. If you cancel after that time period or no-show the class fees are forfeited.
SharpShooters USA Guest Instructor Refund Policy
All registration fees for any course taught by a guest instructor are non-refundable, unless the course is cancelled by SharpShooters USA. As these courses are not offered on a regular basis, you will not be able to reschedule your reservation to a future date. You may transfer your enrollment to another individual provided they meet the training prerequisites and are otherwise qualified to take the course. This transfer must be given in writing at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled event. Notice must include the name, e-mail address, and phone number for your substitute. Because of the variety of dynamics involved in providing these courses which are outside our normal program, discounts do not apply.
We ship only to valid FFL Dealers. Firearms cannot be shipped to a P.O. Box.
The customer is responsible for knowing his/her state laws regarding firearm transfers. Contact your local FFL dealer with any questions regarding the sale or transfer of firearms. Contact your local FFL before ordering a firearm to verify their transfer fee and to ensure they will receive your transfer.
