How fast will my order ship?

  • We try to ship packages within 1-3 business days (Note that Saturday, Sunday, federal, and state holidays are not included in business days). COVID-19 has increased this packaging and shipping time dramatically. Please refer to our front page banner where we post updates on the timeframe you are to expect your order to be shipped out of our facility.
  • Picking the items and packing them is different from the transit time when the order is shipped and scanned by the shipping company.
  • Please keep in mind that we usually ship out orders within 1-3 business days, but it is up to the shipping company to scan the package for the updated tracking.

When will my order be delivered?

  • Transit times are generally 1-7 business days depending on the shipping distance from our Nevada warehouse. Generally, USPS takes 2-3 business days from Nevada to anywhere in the US, and FedEx could take 1-5 business days since it is traveling by ground depending on where you live in the US. Due to COVID, these transit times may have changed and increased depending on where you are getting your order shipped to.

What is my tracking number?

  • Upon completion of your order, you’ll receive an email confirmation stating that your order has been placed.
  • You may check your order status by logging in to the website. The website keeps track of your orders and their tracking numbers once the order(s) has shipped.
  • You will also receive an email whether it is FedEx or USPS that you use to ship your packages. 
  • Your tracking number may not work, however, until FedEx scans your product into their system, but don’t worry… simply check again after 8 PM PST when our last scheduled pick-up from our carriers takes place.
  • If you have not received any information about your tracking information, please feel free to contact our customer service anytime and we will get back to you with the tracking information.

Why should I create an account on AdvancedTactical.com?

  • When you log in with your email address and password you can save and edit your billing and shipping information for faster checkout on your next purchase.
    It is also easier for us to keep track if there are any mistakes on your orders if there are any. We also give discounted pricing that only our members are able to see.
    We also offer member accounts discounted rates on items, number of orders, and scheduled holiday sales.

How do I calculate shipping on an order?

  • Click on the cart, and fill out billing details. Once billing details are filled out, click review order, and choose between shipping methods to view different shipping costs.
  • If your order contains ammunition, it has to be shipped via FedEx ground which we calculate as a flat fee depending on weight and distance. Sometimes we pay more to ship but we will take care of the extra charges.

I ordered and realized I have put down the wrong shipping address, what can Advanced Tactical do?

  • If the order is reported early enough and the shipping department was notified before shipping the order we can make changes to your shipping address.
  • If the order is in transit, please contact the shipping company that you have selected to ship the package. For FedEx, FedEx Delivery Manager can make requests for deliveries. For USPS, you can use USPS Track & Manage to request various options for your shipment.
  • If you cannot make changes, please contact us and we will try to get your order diverted to the new address.

Do you offer free shipping?

  • Yes, we offer free shipping on orders that is $150 or more / excluding firearm shipments.
  • To apply this free shipping, make sure that your cart subtotal is $150 or more. At checkout, select Free Shipping in the shipping method selection.
  • We also apply free shipping on ammunition 5 boxes or more.

Can I save on shipping and pick my order up at the warehouse?

  • Yes, we offer pickups at our warehouse. Your order will be marked as Awaiting Pickup. Once this is the status of your order you may come to our address 150 N Smart Way, Pahrump NV 89060. Make sure that you park OUTSUDE of the property and call  (775) 751 - 4441 ext. 2017 and ask for local pickup. If your address/zip code is close to 60 miles away from our address you will automatically see at checkout a Local Pickup option.
  • We highly recommend to place the order first before heading to our facility and wait for the confirmation email to ensure that we have picked the item(s) that you've purchased.

Why are my shipping costs more than I thought they would be?

  • Shipping costs are based on the weight of your order and the distance to your shipping location. This cost is calculated by a formula created by FedEx.

Can you ship ammo to my location?

  • Due to the unique nature of our business and the constantly changing local legislature, please check your local laws for restrictions before ordering ammunition.
  • Unfortunately, due to a combination of regulations and shipping constraints, we cannot ship to the following locations:
    • Alaska
    • California
    • Chicago (we can ship to other areas in the state of IL, just not Chicago)
    • Connecticut
    • Hawaii
    • Massachusetts
    • New York 
    • Washington, DC
    • APO/ FPO Addresses
    • International Addresses
    • United States Territories
    • P.O. Box when shipping to the United States (a physical address is required)

Applicable IL Statute: b-5) Any resident may purchase ammunition from a person outside of Illinois. Any resident purchasing ammunition outside the State of Illinois must provide the seller with a copy of his or her valid Firearm Owner's Identification Card and either his or her Illinois driver's license or Illinois State Identification Card prior to the shipment of the ammunition. The ammunition may be shipped only to an address on either of those 2 documents.

According to New Jersey Statutes Annotated 2C:58-3.3., our office is required to obtain a copy of one of the following documents before your order can be shipped: a copy of your valid firearms purchaser identification card, a valid copy of a permit to purchase a handgun, or a valid permit to carry a handgun.

I received a promo code for free ammo or magazines but can’t get it shipped to my location?

  • We apologize, however, we will be unable to send you those products if the law doesn’t allow us to. Please select from the many other products that are able to be shipped to your location and contact us on Live Chat to assist you.


Why don’t you ship internationally?

  • In some countries, it’s illegal to own military surplus items – even if they originated there! It would be impossible to keep up with all the laws in other countries to determine if a product – surplus or otherwise – can be shipped there legally.

You offer different shipping methods. Which shipping is the best for my order?

  • We offer USPS Flat Rate Priority which is a secured box, wrapped with our security tapes for extra precautions for theft and loss. (Priority Mail is the shipping privileges of the package when the package has been shipped. This is different from picking/packing/shipping the orders in our facility). We also offer FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery for items that are oddly shaped, too big, or for ammunition orders and we ship with corrugated boxes.
