§ 4 Right of retention, reservation of proprietary rights(1) You can only exercise a right of retention if the situation in question involves claims arising from the same contractual relationship.
(2) The goods remain our property until the purchase price is paid in full.
§ 5 Warranty(1) The statutory warranty rights are applicable.
Claims for defects shall be excluded for used items if the defect occurs
after one year from delivery of the item. If the defect occurs within one year
from delivery of the item, claims for defect can be asserted in accordance with
the statutory limitation period of two years from delivery of the item. The above
limitation does not apply:
- to damages culpably attributable to us arising from injury to life, limb or health and for other damages caused by willful intent or gross negligence;
- insofar as we have willfully concealed the defect or accepted a warranty for the quality of the goods.
As a consumer, you are
requested to promptly check the product for completeness, visible defects and
transport damage as soon as it is delivered, and promptly disclose your
complaints to us and the shipping company in writing. Even if you do not comply
with this request, it shall have no effect on your legal warranty claims.
§ 6 Choice of law, place of fulfilment, jurisdiction(1) German law shall apply. This choice of law only applies to customers if it does not result in the revocation of the protection guaranteed by the mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which the respective customer’s usual place of residence is located (benefit-of-the-doubt principle).
(2) If you are not a consumer, but a businessman, a legal entity under public law or an institutional fund governed by public law, our place of business is the place of jurisdiction as well as the place of fulfilment for all services that follow from the business relationships that exist with us. The same condition applies to situations in which you are not associated with a general place of jurisdiction in Germany or the EU, as well as situations in which the place of residence or the usual place of residence is not known at the time of commencement of proceedings. This has no bearing on the capacity to call upon the court associated with another place of jurisdiction.
(3) The provisions of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods are explicitly inapplicable.
§ 7 Protection of minors(1) For the sale of goods, that are subject of the regulations of child welfare protection law, we only deal with contractual relationships with customers who have reached the legally prescribed minimum age.
Any age restrictions are referred to in the respective item descriptions.

You are under obligation to ensure that only you or other persons authorized by you to accept the delivery, who have reached the legally prescribed minimum age, can take delivery of the goods.
(3) As long as we are under obligation by the legal provisions to carry out an age verification, we instruct the logistics service provider commissioned with the delivery to hand over the delivery only to persons who have reached the legally prescribed minimum age, and in case of doubt, to request for the identity card of the person accepting the product for the purpose of age verification.
(4) As far as we show, beyond the legally prescribed minimum age in the respective item description, that you must have completed 18 years of age to be able to purchase the item, the aforementioned sections 1-3 are applicable providing that instead of the legally prescribed minimum age, the legal age must be reached.
§ 8 Weapons, ammunition sales(1) When it comes to the sales of products that are covered by the weapons law, we only enter into contractual relationships with customers who are of legal age. If the products in question are listed in annex 2 of the weapons law, you are asked to present a weapons permit.
Weapons and ammunition, which are subject to a special purchase authorization, are only sold or delivered upon presentation of valid documents: e.g. hunting license (only original document) or expediently as official confirmation or officially certified photocopies of all inscribed pages (fax may not be accepted), firearms owners license (only original document), ammunition purchase certificate (only original document) or special permit (only original document).
Purchase authorization-free items will only be delivered or respectively sold upon presentation of an official original certificate or expediently on presentation of an official confirmation, that the acquirer has reached the age of 18 years.
(2) You affirm, in conjunction with the sending of your order, that you are at least 18 years old and that the data supplied by you regarding your name and your address is accurate. You are obligated to ensure that the product is only received by you or persons of legal age who you have authorized to receive the product.
(3) We instruct the third-party logistics provider, who has been entrusted with the task of making the delivery, to only deliver the product in question to people above the age of 18 and, in case of any doubts, to verify the age of the person receiving the product by viewing that person’s identification card.
(4) Default of acceptance
(4.1) If the customer is in default of acceptance, we are entitled to stock the weapon ourselves at the expenses and risk of the customer. Depending on the storage location, storage costs of at least EUR 10.00 are incurred per weapon per month. The default of acceptance starts after 3 months after receiving the payment of customer and after the weapon is being ready for pickup or for shipping.
(4.2) If the customer is an entrepreneur, then we are entitled to store the weapon ourselves at the expenses and risk of the customer if the handing over is impossible for a longer period of time, due to circumstances we are not responsible for. Depending on the storage location, storage costs of at least EUR 10.00 are incurred per weapon per month.
