Shipping Policy

In the venerable words of Benjamin Franklin, "Nothing is certain, but Death, Taxes & SKD's $5 Fast Shipping."

Whether it is a huge order to Mainstreet USA, or a single Flag Patch to an APO address, we deliver DAY-IN & DAY-OUT on our Industry-leading NINJA-CERTIFIED™ Shipping Policy.

  • Standard Shipping for all Domestic & APO orders is $5 FLAT.
  • Place your order by 1 PM (EST) Monday-Friday and it ships out the SAME DAY.*
  • All orders ship out within 1 business day* - OR shipping is FREE.**

Here's a little comparison:

XYZ: You order it, but they don't have it, and you have to wait for weeks or months before it arrives- BOOOOOOO!

XYZ: You order there to save $7, but then you get whacked $19 on shipping charges. Then your order doesn't show up as promised. 7 emails, 8 phone calls and 9 weeks later, your order shows up and you went through all of that to save $7.

XYZ: You order it, and 16 months go by and you've already moved twice in that time. Right in the middle of waiting for a call from a hot date, someone calls your cell phone to say, "Good news, the Widget you ordered is in stock! Do you still want it?" As you jog through your memory on what the hell you ordered, your hot date calls, and you try to find FLASH on your new smart phone, but you press the wrong button, and you hang up on both calls. HULK SMASH!!!!!!!!

*This excludes orders placed on national holidays, orders placed during special sales (e.g., site-wide sales), shipments that require address verification, ID verification, other issues that require customer correspondence and the almighty force majeure. Also excludes Pre-Order items, items ordered along with Pre-Order items, special purchase items or warehouse/website maintenance periods- you will know before-hand if your order falls within a deferred shipping category or a maintenance period. 


We charge only $5 FLAT for Standard Shipping, no matter how much you order- SO ORDER AWAY! ;)

Most packages ship via USPS Priority Mail for an average delivery time of 2-3 days; heavier packages over 6 lbs may ship via UPS Ground, and lighter packages in areas where delivery times are equal to USPS Priority Mail may ship via USPS First Class Mail. Express Mail is also available, and is guaranteed overnight for most US locations. Please check to confirm if Express Mail will guarantee delivery to your address within 1 or 2 days from Pacific, MO 63069.

To prevent fraud and protect our customers, high-value orders placed by first time customers may be subject to additional verification measures before shipping.


Although an uncommon occurrence, there may be times when packages might end up missing or even stolen from their delivery address. SKD is responsible for everything up to the point of shipping, and once the order has shipped, it is the responsibility of the carrier (usually USPS or UPS) to deliver it safely, in a timely manner to the address shown.

SKD is NOT responsible for any of the following situations:

  • Wrong address delivery due to an incorrect address being input by customer during order.
  • Missing package when order shows as being delivered.
  • Stolen package when order shows as being delivered.
  • Damage to products that occur during shipping or delivery.

Unfortunately, package theft seems to be on the rise. Please take precautions to ensure that your delivery address is one that is safe for your packages to be left at, or please request signature confirmation in your order comments if someone is not always available to receive your order at that address.

Your USPS Mail Carrier or UPS Delivery Person usually has remarkable recall for details on where packages were left when contacted within a day or two of delivery. Sometimes lost or missing packages are left out of view and may even be with a neighbor. If you suspect your package was stolen, you must file a police report to file a claim with either UPS or USPS, so please make that a priority.



From time to time we will offer special pricing or promotions on items that we do not have ready to ship. These items will be clearly marked as “PRE-ORDER” with an estimated shipping time frame. If any other in-stock items are ordered at the same time as a PRE-ORDER item, the order will ship complete when the PRE-ORDER item is available and ready to ship. We do not do partial shipments.


International orders are charged standard USPS published rates and ship via USPS Priority Mail Express International or USPS Priority Mail International.

All Packages are insured up to $200.00, and typically arrive within 3-14 days. Please refer to the following link: or check the list below for estimated delivery times. To prevent fraud and protect our customers, first time international customers may be asked to submit an ID. All subsequent orders will be sent without restriction.

As a general rule, we cannot export any laser products, IR products, functioning firearms parts, Blue Force Gear, Magazines and SureFire products. Items that cannot be exported are noted accordingly in the product's description. International orders containing "No Export" products will be canceled and refunded.
