Guide to Buying Guns & Ammo Online

What is the process for purchasing a firearm or air rifle online from redmillsoutdoorpursuits.ie?

Please note you have to be a resident in the Republic of Ireland to purchase guns or ammunition from redmillsoutdoorpursuits.ie

After browsing our online store and selecting a suitable firearm or air rifle, you will be brought through the checkout process where you will be requested to pay for the gun.

Once the purchase process is complete, and you have paid for the item, this is the process you will have to go through before your gun will be available for you to collect from our shop:

  1. A bill of sale will be supplied to the customer by email or fax containing the following information: 
    • Customer’s name
    • Customer’s address
    • Gun make and model
    • Gun calibre
    • Gun serial number
    • Dealer ID of the gun shop
    • Pulse ID of the gun shop
    • Signature of Connolly’s RED MILLS staff member
  2. The customer will then present this document to their local Garda station and fill out a gun license application form (check and see where your local station is)
  3. You will then receive a reply to your application after approximately three weeks. This will either state that you have been granted a firearms licence or not
  4. If you have been granted a license, you will then have to go to your local post office and pay the fee for this licence, for example €80 for a three year gun license (find out where your local post office is)
  5. Once you have this proof of payment, the firearm can be collected from RED MILLS Outdoor Pursuits, Cillin Hill, Kilkenny on presentation of this document or you can wait until you get your licence, i.e. three to four working days, and collect the firearm from us then.*

 

Find out more information on firearm licensing and the application form on the Garda website.
