These terms apply to all product sales from the Vista Sites and may be supplemented by more specific terms on the individual Vista Site where an order is placed.
All products offered for sale are subject to availability and Vista Outdoor’s acceptance of your order. After you place an order through a Vista Outdoor Site, we will send you an email acknowledging your order. This order acknowledgment means that your order has been received; it does not mean that your order has been accepted, shipped, or that the price of an item has been confirmed, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell; we are simply confirming that we received your order. Upon shipment of your order, we will send you an email. Vista Outdoor may also require additional information prior to accepting or processing any order.
Vista Outdoor reserves the right at any time to accept, decline or cancel any order or limit order quantity for any reason. If we cancel an order after you have already been billed, we will refund the billed amount. Vista Outdoor uses its best efforts to fulfill orders, however, there may be instances in which a product is out of stock or unavailable, in which case Vista Outdoor will contact you for direction on whether you wish to select another order or cancel your existing order.
Vista Outdoor may revise, discontinue or modify products at any time without prior notice to you and products may become unavailable without notice. Vista Outdoor shall have no liability of any kind if any product is not available.
Most product orders are shipped by a third party fulfillment service provider. Delivery lead times vary, but most orders will be shipped within 10 working days. The delivery charge varies depending on the size and weight of the item. These charges will be included in the Shipping and Handling of your order. If eligible for shipment to Hawaii and Alaska, special rates apply. Oversized and extremely heavy items are marked on their product information pages as requiring a special delivery charge. Title to and risk of loss of product will pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier. Shipping times are estimates only, and not a guarantee that the product will be delivered on the specified date. We will not be liable for any loss or expense which you may incur as a result of any delay in the delivery of your order. When ordering more than one item, please note your items may come in different shipments. Vista Outdoor assumes no liability for damaged, lost or stolen shipments.

Credit Card Information
You may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your purchase of product through a Vista Outdoor Site, including credit card number, the expiration date, your billing address and your shipping information. By submitting such information, you grant Vista Outdoor the right to provide such information to our third party-fulfillment service provider to facilitate the transaction. You agree to pay all charges that you incur on the Sites at the prices in effect when incurred, including without limitations any shipping and handling charges and taxes.

Prices shown are in U.S. dollars. Vista Outdoor reserves the right to change prices for products displayed on the Site at any time, and to correct pricing errors that may inadvertently occur. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items on our Website may be mispriced. Rest assured, however, that we verify prices as part of our shipping procedures. If an item’s correct price is lower than our stated price, we charge the lower amount and ship you the item. If an item’s correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either (i) contact you for instructions about whether you wish to pay the correct higher price before shipping or (ii) cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation (whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card or debit card charged). We cannot confirm the price of an item until your order enters the shipping process, nor will we charge your credit card until your order enters the shipping process. (Please note that your Order Acknowledgment means that your order request has been received; it does not mean that your order has been shipped or that the price of an item has been confirmed.)
The extent of any limited warranty for each product is as shipped with the product or as expressly stated on a warranty document on a Vista Outdoor Site. Any warranty offered is limited to defects in material or workmanship, and repair or replacement is your exclusive remedy for any defective product. In no event shall we be liable for any special, incidental or consequential damages of any kind arising out of the purchase or use of any product, whether based on contract, tort, statute or otherwise. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from State to State. In addition, any warranties implied by law shall in no event extend beyond the duration of the express warranty offered, if any. Some States do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

Authorized returns must have a prior return merchandise authorization (RMA) and may be subject to a restocking fee. Contact Customer Service using the number or email address listed on the Vista Outdoor Site Customer Support page to obtain an RMA number.
