A valid Florida state ID or Driver's License to prove Florida residency and a form of payment.
If you also own a CWFL, bring it as well. If you are a Florida resident but do not currently have an ID showing current residency, contact the store for other potential options that you can use to be able to make a purchase.

Since March of 2020, the pandemic, in addition to the nation-wide riots, and the 2020 election have led to a record-breaking
number of gun buyers in the US. Both firearms and ammo are in extremely high demand which has made most things hard to obtain
and for costs to rise.
No. Most items on our full catalog must be shipped from one of several distributors. If something is available in-store, most
of the time the item will display below the price info where it is located. For any inventory related questions, feel free to contact the
relevent store! Also note that not all store items
may appear online. This is especially true for ammunition.
Guns are not designed to be gender-specific. Irregardless of sex, if you are going to be a first time gun-owner,
we always recommend handling a few different guns in-person to see what feels right.
If it's an online purchase or a transfer arriving here, wait for
us to contact you. When it arrives, you can then complete the background
check at the shop. You'll be able to pick up your firearm after three business days from when you gave payment granted that
you passed the background check and the store is open. CWFL holders can typically take their firearm
or receiver the day of.
Currently we cannot give a confident answer as to when your item(s) may arrive from our distributers
and arrival will depend on a number of factors. On average it's typically taking
from one week to a few weeks. You may receive a tracking email if you ordered a non-serialized item,
but it's not necessarily ready to be picked up until we contact you. In-store pickup orders are
free but generally take longer to arrive than standard shipping orders.
Yes. There are two ways you can obtain these items. We highly recommend you call a staff member at (727) 304-4443 or email us to assist you in choosing and purchasing your silencer(s) / suppressor(s).
1) Mad Dog Armory will furnish you with two copies of ATF Form 4. These forms will need to be signed by a Chief
Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO). An example of a CLEO is your town Chief, County Sheriff or State Police officer.
Once your CLEO signs off on your Form 4, you will be required to obtain TWO sets of fingerprints and TWO recent
color passport photos for an FBI check.
2) If no relevant CLEO will sign, you can form a corporation or Gun Trust with an attorney in your state. The
corporation or gun trust can purchase the NFA firearm without the need for a CLEO to sign off on your Form 4.
Once one of these two steps are complete, bring the signed ATF Form 4’s, fingerprints and passport photos back to
Mad Dog Armory, where you will fill out a “Certification of Compliance with 18 USC 922 (g)(5)(B)” and
pay the $200 transfer tax. Mad Dog Armory will mail the completed package to the ATFE. This process can take a first
time applicant anywhere from 30-60 days to get their first transfer approved. Upon approval, We will
contact you to come pick up your chosen silencer(s) / suppressor(s). You’ll then fill out an ATFE Form 4473,
just like you would any firearm, and be on your way!
Yes, this is possible. Basically your state
must allow the purchasing and ownership of full auto firearms under certain circumstances
first and foremust, which Florida allows. The full auto (or NFA) firearm in quesion must
also be made prior to 1986 due to the Firearm Owners Protection Act. Then the rest of the process process is
similar to purchasing a suppressor. But for more information, please speak to a salesperson
if you are interested in purchasing a full auto firearm.
Yes. We have a large variety of items that we call ‘Non-Lethal’ options. These products include pepper
sprays, tasers, stun guns, Brutus keychains, personal alarms and numerous other products.
If you have not applied for the permit yet, you can check the requirements here. Typically it can take about two months to receive the permit.
You can check on the FDACS website here for the status of your application once it is mailed and received.
The vast majority of them come back approved; but there's no way to know before actually
going through a check. A purchase on a serialized item (i.e. a firearm) must also be done first before any
background check can be run. To see a list of potential disqualifications, refer to this link here: FDLE FAQ.
Unfortunately we (or any FFL dealer) has no control over this and we are not
given any other information other than the status. The Florida Department
of Law Enforcement processes all background checks and the status can come back
not approved or take longer to process for one reason or another. If you are pending
for more than several days or come back Not Approved, you can call their customer service
number at (850)410-8139.
