How to Return a Gun to Gander Mountain

by Eric Cedric

Gander Mountain is a retailer of hunting, fishing and outdoor adventure supplies. Gander Mountain carries a full range of hunting weapons, including shotguns, rifles and handguns. The company has a very strict return policy when dealing with guns. In order to return a gun, you must follow these return policies to the letter.

Bring your original receipt showing the gun was purchased at Gander Mountain and the unopened gun in the original packaging to a Gander Mountain retail store.

Check in with the front door greeter and show her you are bringing in a weapon to the store. Let the clerk assist you in bringing the gun to the return/customer service counter.

Fill out the needed return forms provided by the Gander Mountain staff. Only unopened and unused guns will be accepted for returns. Handguns are not returnable -- only rifles and shotguns.

Present the counter staff with your government-issued driver's license or ID card. If the gun was purchased with a credit card, present it to the counter staff so a credit can be placed on the card.

Items you will need
  • Original receipt
  • Unused gun in original, unopened packaging

Warning

  • Gander Mountain will not accept handguns or used guns for returns. All rifle and shotgun returns must be unused and in the original packaging.
