Free Shipping on Orders Over $100

All orders over $100 before shipping charges will receive free Economy Shipping.  If shipping cannot be completed using U.S.P.S., we will upgrade to UPS at no cost to you. 


Economy Shipping via U.S.P.S.

Economy shipping aims to save you money on shipping your new gear purchase.  Orders using this shipping option are shipped through the United States Postal Service either Priority Mail or Parcel Post services taking an average of 4-8 days depending on where it is going.  Shipping through UPS and may or may not have tracking numbers.

All orders over $100 will receive free Economy Shipping with Standard Shipping still available.

***If your shipping location does no support USPS, please select Standard Shipping for UPS shipping***


Standard Shipping / UPS

If you are accustomed to fast shipments with tracking information the moment we pack your order, choose the standard shipping.  These orders are delivered by UPS and are delivered in 3-5 days on average.

***If your shipping location does not support UPS, please select Economy Shipping for USPS services***


2 Day Shipping

2 Day Shipping is our expedited shipping method.  We prioritize these orders for picking and packing.  Our goal is for these orders to be "next day" but depending on when the order comes in, it may take the first day at the shipping carrier.  Depending on the order size, we usually send these U.S.P.S Priority Express. 2 Day Shipping is NOT available for APO / FPO orders because the carriers cannot guarantee delivery times.  


Deciding on Shipping Method

Can’t decide on what shipping method is best for you?  Assuming both UPS and USPS deliver to your location, take these examples into consideration:

                                One sling to Houston, TX would take 3 days with Economy, 3 days with Standard

                                A nice order of gear to Houston would take 5 days with Economy, 3 days Standard

                                One sling to Garden Valley, CA will take 3 days with Economy and 3 days with Standard

                                A nice order of gear to California would take 7 days Economy, 5 days Standard

If you are buying just a sling and do not need tracking information, choose Economy Shipping.  This will be the best value and sometimes the fastest method.   


PO Boxes and APOs

PO Boxes and APO orders are sent through USPS.  Some APO orders may experience a significant delay depending on the location and mail services available.  Please understand this is beyond our control but we will do whatever we can to help mitigate this.  


Canada Shipments

Blue Force Gear ships individual orders made on to Canada.  At this time, we send through the USPS and into Canada where it may convert to another carrier such as Canada Post.  Please note in order to offer Canadian shipping, Blue Force Gear has the ability to quote the shipping cost only. Any additional taxes, duties, and fees are the responsibility of the buyer / recipient.  When and how much these fees are depends on the order value, location, and other factors beyond our control. 

Tracking information may or may not be available for Canada shipments.

Delivery times will vary depending on location and final carrier.  


Back Orders

Due to the increased demand from government buyers, dealers and distributors, and fellow enthusiasts items are continually being stocked and sold out.  We have turned on the ability to back order most items for your convenience and to ‘place you in line’ for that item when it is available next. 

Almost everything is operating at a 90 day or less lead time so please keep this in mind when placing an back order item. 

To streamline ordering and customer service, your card will be charged at checkout for the full purchase amount.  Items that are in stock will be shipped immediately and any back order items will ship when they become available. 

You will be charged only one shipping charge – if any – the first time.  Any subsequent shipping charges will be covered free of charge for the delay.  


Commercial Orders / Military / Government Orders

Shipping details about large quantity commercial or government orders will be coordinated prior to shipping.  Please refer to your agreement and email



Pre-ordering allows you to lock in your order and secures your delivery out of the next available run. 

  • Your credit card will be charged when you place the order
  • We will send a tracking number to your provided email address when your order ships.
