Q. What is Kind Sniper all about?
A. Kind Sniper envisions combining all "pillars" of a successful firearm ownership into one framework. These pillars are the following: top-notch hardware, technical proficiency, adequate psychology, and legal savviness. We are a direct supplier of the first “pillar” (we are a licensed firearm dealer), and we strive to offer resources on the remaining three. Above all, our mission is to help people recognize and appreciate firearm ownership as a system that involves much more than purchasing a gun.
Q. What is Kind Sniper’s business model?
A. Kind Sniper’s outreach is nationwide. As such, we prefer to operate online. We offer two storefronts: Kind Sniper Boutique (https://kindsniper.com/) and Kind Sniper Mall (https://mall.kindsniper.com/). The Boutique is based on careful hand-selection of firearms as if it were for our personal collection, whereas the Mall offers a breadth of inventory in every Department to suit a variety of needs, preferences and budgets.
Q. How is Kind Sniper different from other online firearm retailers?
A. We treat selection of our boutique inventory as a personal collection/arsenal. We only acquire from our suppliers and offer to our customers those firearms that we think highly enough of to be part of that collection; we don’t subscribe to the common “buy as much stuff as possible / sell as much stuff as possible” formula. To us, it’s more than “stuff”. We offer fewer selections but those that we do offer have passed the scrutiny of our taste and judgement. To our knowledge, there is no other retailer offering a similar approach. Our approach is quite unique, and by buying from us, our customers reward it.
Q. Does this mean that whatever’s not in the Kind Sniper Boutique inventory hasn’t scored high enough with you to qualify?
A. Oftentimes, yes, but not always. There are some items that we (and our suppliers on our behalf) are on the lookout for. The whole industry is experiencing shortages, and we can’t always get everything we’d like right away.
Q. Do you strive to offer the lowest prices on the market?
A. While we continuously attempt to set/maintain a fair and competitive pricing, offering the lowest prices on the market is not our goal. It is, however, our goal to offer you a boutique-level shopping experience. That means first-class communication, error-free handling and fast, reliable shipping. We believe that translates into much more value than a minor difference in price.
Q. Why would I buy from Kind Sniper as opposed to going to one of my neighborhood’s brick-and-mortar gun shops; or another online gun store, for that matter?
A. While there are many great brick-and-mortar and online stores out there, they are generally 100% sale-driven. Kind Sniper is not just a seller - we are a philosophy promoter, a thought leader and a contributor to the longevity of the Second Amendment. By buying from us, you support our approach, help fuel our operation and thus become part of what we do. Another difference of Kind Sniper is that we donate a percentage of every purchase to the 2nd Amendment charity of your choice (selecting a charity is a part of our checkout process).
Q. What about Gunbroker.com and similar multi-seller platforms?
A. As noted in the question, Gunbroker.com itself is not a seller; rather, it's a platform that hosts a great variety of sellers. When it comes to technical functionality, Gunbroker.com is great. But for the shoppers, it's a big "lottery" game - you might get lucky with your seller, but you might not. Even with good feedback, “multiple sellers” means an inconsistent experience in regards to each seller's specific terms, policies, communication styles etc. That translates into multiple possibilities of a somehow imperfect transaction. Why take a chance? Besides, more often than not, you get charged a credit card fee - it’s either explicit or worked into the price.
Q. What if I need to buy something you don’t offer at Kind Sniper - be it an AR, a red dot or a gun cleaning kit?
A. We are likely to offer most of what you might be looking for. If it’s not available at Kind Sniper Boutique, it probably is at Kind Sniper Mall. The Mall has a very large inventory of products - both firearm and non-firearm ones - thanks to a real-time integration with the inventories of our multiple suppliers. Be sure to check it out and visit it frequently, as the inventory is updated dynamically and more suppliers are underway.
Q. What methods of payment do you accept?
A. We accept all major credit cards. We also accept money orders and cashiers checks by mail. You can also pay with your checking account if you prefer; for that, we would need to take your account information over the phone and process an electronic ACH debit transaction (please note: we will only ship once the transaction has been fully settled - normally takes 2-3 business days). Kind Sniper has partnered with Gearfire Capital to offer customer financing on all Kind Sniper Mall purchases of $500 and more (calculated based on the total shopping cart value). The financing terms are among the best in the industry. We encourage you to shop at Kind Sniper Mall to take advantage of this valuable offering! Learn more about customer financing at Kind Sniper. We also offer a Firearm Layaway Program.
Q. Do you offer discounts to certain groups of customers?
A. Yes, we do! We offer an ongoing 5% discount to the members of Law Enforcement and Military (both active-duty and veterans). We also offer a 7% discount to our Repeat Customers. These discounts can be applied repeatedly to every purchase. For more information, please visit our “Deals & Promotions” page.
