Our Products

Dave's Pawn Shop strives to uphold a commitment to our customers. We take pride in our product line new and used and test every item that comes into our door. Before the item gets put on our shelf, we test it thoroughly. It is to our best interest of course that we have updated products that are lightly used and work well. We also carry alot of new items that can only be found in speciality stores such as guns, ammo, knives, and accessories of all kinds.

Used Guns

All used firearms are sold with a 48 hour trial warranty. Upon testing your used weapon's function, if you find it to not function properly we will repair or exchange the weapon. If your gun does not work, bring it in and we will have our gunsmith take a look at it. If the gun cannot be repaired, we will allow credit towards the purchase of another firearm. No returns after 10 days for any reason. Purchasers of used firearms are urged to contact the manufacturers for a firearms owner's manual for such firearm.

Return Policy

Ammunition cannot be returned. We want you to be happy with your purchase. If you desire to return an item, just contact us by phone or in person, with the product information, date of purchase and the reason for the return. Please keep all packing material and documentation in the event your purchase has to be serviced or returned to the manufacturer. If you return the merchandise without authorization, you will be charged a 25% restocking fee. No returns after 10 days for any reason.

Our Prices

Dave's Pawn Shop tries to maintain the lowest prices possible. These prices may change as products sell out and are re-supplied. Your understanding is appreciated when stock is sold-out and replaced with higher cost items. In the event of misprinted prices, we reserve the right to sell the items at the correct, current price.

We will attempt to match prices on NEW guns only for identical packages, as long as it is a published, advertised price from a real advertising store. We will not match prices on hearsay, used guns, expired advertising or from stores that seem to have real good deals on guns they never have in stock.


Dave's Pawn Shop is not a warranty repair station. We make no express or implied warranty whatsoever with respect to any merchandise, including but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. The only warranties provided are provided by the manufacturers and are as contained in each manufacturer's package. Please consult the documentation that came with your purchase for details. We will, however, work with you in a reasonable and responsible manner to resolve any problems you may encounter.

Straw Purchases

Anytime a customer wishes to purchase a handgun or a longgun for another individual, this is referred to as a straw-man purchase. We cannot and will not sell firearms to a customer if we have the slightest hint that the firearm will be transferred as soon as you leave our establishment. If an out-of-state buyer wishes to purchase a Handgun from Dave's Pawn Shop, we will be happy to ship it to your favorite FFL holder in the buyers state of residence.

Age Restrictions

A lot of our products are intended for adult use only or under adult supervision. You must be 18 years or older to purchase a shotgun or rifle, including ammunition, and 21 years or older to purchase a handgun including ammunition for the handgun.

Waiting Period for Purchase of Firearms

There is no waiting period in Tennessee, but there is a background check which involves your filling out a form and having your thumbprints taken. The cost for this service is a non-refundable $10.00 per transaction. A photo ID with your current address is required. If you are a Tennessee resident, the photo ID must be a Tennessee-issued ID. If you have changed your address but not on your photo ID, you can do so online with the state at

Out-of-state residents purchasing a rifle or shotgun only may use their state ID providing it has a photo with current address. Out-of-state residents may purchase a handgun, but cannot take possession of the gun until it has been transferred to a Federal firearms licensed dealer in your state who will comply with the laws and regulations of your state in acquisition of the firearm. We will need an original, signed copy of the FFL license and street mailing address of the dealer it is to be shipped to.
