Please be aware: 

  • G9 ships all orders via UPS ground. By law, ammunition is required to ship via Ground. As a result, we are unable to ship to PO Boxes or offer expedited shipping.
  • G9 Defense does not accept returns of ammunition for any reason - no exceptions. Please ensure all items are correct before submitting your order for any ammunition products.
  • Due to supply chain shortages or available supply, G9 Defense reserves the right to limit the sale of ammunition to end users.
  • Ammo prices have increased due to increases in the cost of producing ammunition, arising in part from labor and manufacturing material cost increases like copper and other metals. 
  • G9 Defense offers several items that are restricted for sale in the United States of America by federal, state, and/or local laws and regulations. Sale of these restricted items may be limited to United States Military, Law Enforcement, Correctional Facility Personnel, Security Guards, Peace Officers, and various other authorized users.
G9 Defense makes its best effort to ensure that it remains current on all laws and regulations as applicable. Please be aware that United States federal, state, and/or local laws and regulations are complex and are subject to change. Therefore, any summaries of such laws and regulations provided by G9 Defense at any time can never and will never serve as legal advice or counseling in any way. If you have any questions about any law or regulation, G9 Defense advises you to consult with an attorney who will represent your interests. It is ultimately the Customer's responsibility to investigate and ensure that any item is legal to use, carry, possess, purchase and/or own within the Customer's intended federal, state and/or local area.
