It looks like a good site to me.
Put in the website here and then click the “analysis” button.
I always use this when buying online.
I’ve detected so many scam sites
You are quite welcome Sir,
I haven't been on.
My FIL has been having amputations on his feet.
Been working hard to help my wife and when I get a free moment, I'm at the range.
Good luck with all of it Gunny. Use that range time as a therapeutic treatment. It works for me and my son - he’s a retired Gunny too.
https://springfieldfirearmstore.com/ is a scam.

This site is excellent and when I did a chat with them they sent a copy of the chat to my email. Once I found they only accepted venmo, zelle, and paypal for payment I knew this site is a scamer.
As for money orders, I do all of my transactions on auction sites through USPS money orders. This does not mean you are a scamer.
I’ve also sent several money orders without issue. Generally, it has been to sellers who will also take a check though.
I see an overwhelming number of legit sellers stopped taking it altogether. Just wait till January.
1 had good reviews on ammoseek
2 had a secure link
3 fraud check sites didn't list it
4 company seemed to have a current FFL
5 Site specifics didn't raise any red flags
6 pricing was not too good to be true
But two weeks later no contact, no replies, no tracking, no shipment, no phone number tied to the company that answers
If a site says to use zelie, or western union, or paypal, or cash app DO NOT use it. Even some sites will take your card then say it won't process and direct you to a cash payment and then they stole your card info also.
I messed up and forgot paypal terms of no ammo or guns and used it, I cannot contact paypal to dispute because they won't cover it and will ban me after anyway.
So be careful online, or learn the hard way like I did
Some of us do have Zelle as an option when it's available through our NFI; we probably do around 5% of service transactions with Zelle through Wells Fargo. But if it's the only option, that's a red flag.
At the end of the day, Google is your friend. Scam sites are usually pretty easy to find complaints on.
Hmm giftcard and crypto?
Nicely made scam site.

"What is the On/Off Lever on a 1903 Springfield?
The on/off lever on a 1903 Springfield is the lever that controls the flow of gas to the gun. When the lever is in the “on” position, gas flows from the gas port into the chamber, and when the lever is in the “off” position, gas flow is blocked. The purpose of this lever is to allow shooters to safely clean their gun without having to discharge any rounds.
The Springfield 1903 is a bolt-action rifle that was used extensively by the United States military during the early 20th century. The rifle was designed by John C. Garand, who also designed the M1 Garand rifle that would replace it in service. The 1903 Springfield has a five-round internal magazine and can be fitted with either a bayonet or a scope.
Additionally, the rifle was not equipped with a bayonet lug, meaning that soldiers had to carry a separate bayonet if they wanted one. "
If you have a 9mm pistol, you can shoot 380 ammunition in it. The 9mm is a much larger caliber than the 380, so the 380 will fit perfectly into the chamber of the 9mm. You may notice that the recoil is slightly different with the 380 ammo, but it will not be enough to cause any problems.
The 9mm Luger is a very popular handgun round, and many people want to know if it can be used in a .40 S&W firearm. The answer is yes, it can be done safely. The 9mm Luger has slightly higher pressure than the .40 S&W, but the difference is not enough to cause any problems in most firearms.
In fact, many gun manufacturers make barrels that are marked “.40 S&W/.9mm Luger” which are safe to use with either caliber of ammunition. There are some exceptions though, so always check with your gun’s manufacturer before using a different caliber of ammunition.
Adoring peach is the company. The have a nice add, they send out crappy junk.
I once got scammed out of $400. I felt really stupid. It was not an ammo supplier but a hacker in a friends email. Looking back the red flags were there I just didn't see them. We need a thread with good ammo suppliers, for example, I have recently had several orders from Palmetto State Armory and their service is excellent and they have had some awesome deals of late. Shipping charges are not bad at all and they will ship part of an order if the rest is delayed. Very happy with them.
No opton to look up FFL site and option to pay with Zelle and cripto

On Zillow and Refin,Realtor it listed as sinlge house for sale.
I use Palmetto State and Midway and Optics Planet and GunMagWarehouse and Sportsmans Warehouse (sportsmans.com) and a few others for firearms and ammo related stuff. I stick with what I know, subscribe to their sales flyers emails. I have spent so much money with these guys it's ridiculous. I shop the sales and "try" to resist impulse buying but; man it's hard! Just what I need. Always wanting more ammo.
I've even bought accessories for my suppressors from Optics Planet.
I haven't bought anything from Brownells in a while.
There is also a family business out of OK that I have been doing business with for years.
