Pick Up Orders

Local Pick-up hours:

Ammunition and accessories can be picked up Tuesday through Friday from 9am to 5pm EST; we encourage you to place your order online or call it in (1-888-748-5252) before you pick it up to secure inventory. Once you place your order online or by phone, it will be ready to be picked up almost instantly. You will not receive notice when it is ready to be picked up.

  • PLEASE NOTE: You have 14 days to pick up your order or it will be canceled without notice.

Sales Tax Charges

The corporate office and warehouse of AIM, Inc. are located in the great state of Ohio. Orders picked up at our location will be charged Butler county sales tax rates. Ohio businesses making purchases with the intent of resale may complete an Ohio Blanket Exemption Certificate, stating that items will be purchased for RESALE, in order to make purchases tax exempt.

  • A Vendor’s License does not grant tax exempt status, only a completed Ohio Department of Taxation Sales and Use Tax
    Blanket Exemption Certificate.

This tax exempt certificate must be completed BEFORE purchases are made. No refunds of sales taxes will be given upon completion of the purchase. Thanks for your cooperation.

For pick up orders you can pay via Cash, Credit Card, Check, or Money Order:

  • There is a $5000 limit on Cash transactions PER ORDER. This limit also applies to Checks and Money Orders.

Items that state “SHIPPING FROM WAREHOUSE# 2. NOT AVAILABLE FOR PICKUP” will ship from a secondary warehouse and are not available for local pickup (except firearms)*. These items will ONLY ship via UPS (no PO Boxes please).

  • Items from Warehouse #2 will all have an SKU# that begins with a ‘Z‘ (these items include, firearms, ammunition, magazines, and accessories).

Firearm Pickups:

You can place an order online, and choose “PICK-UP”, then call to make an appointment, or order by phone M-F, 9-5pm EST. and set an appointment for pickup.

*Ohio Concealed Handgun License Holders who hold a valid permit that was issued on or after March 23, 2015, will not have to complete the NICS check. However, ALL FIREARM TRANSFERS STILL REQUIRE COMPLETION OF ATF FORM 4473.

We are very happy to transfer a firearm for you from another dealer or individual. Please contact AIM BEFORE you have any firearms shipped to us, so we can note what is being shipped, who it is for, and where it is coming from. Please insure the sender includes a copy of their FFL (or driver’s license if an individual).

Also, if the sender needs a copy of AIM’s FFL, it is on our website, or we can fax or email them a copy.

We charge $30.00 for outside transfers, and you will need an appointment to pickup.

Firearm Appointments:

Appointments are set at a first-come, first-served basis.  You must bring a valid driver’s license with you and it must contain your current address. Please call to make an appointment as soon as possible after placing an online order for a firearm.

FFL holders wishing to purchase eligible firearms may do so Tuesday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm EST.  No appointment is necessary but we still encourage you to place the order online or call the order in ahead of time if possible to secure inventory.

For safety purposes, please no children under the age of 18 on the premises.

The Following Applies to ALL Firearm Purchases:

  • We reserve the right to deny a purchase for any reason.
  • You must be a citizen of the United States to make a purchase.
  • All items purchased from AIM SURPLUS are for lawful uses only.
  • No “Straw Purchases” of firearms.  The individual paying for the firearm and completing the 4473 Firearms Transaction Record must be the same person (the intended owner).


We will gladly assist you in getting any issues with your firearm resolved directly with the manufacturer, but there will be no return of a firearm once it has left the premises. Please carefully inspect your firearm with this policy in mind.
