Raniersec online gun store is a scam
They take your money then don’t ship anything.
Here are some warning signs to consider:
- They accept only anonymous gift cards or bitcoin. You might think “well they are just trying to save on credit card fees” but equally you should understand this means you have zero way to get your money back if they don’t deliver
- Call the phone number, it goes to voicemail
- They post a picture of a store, but if you google the address 301 Arctic Slope Avenue, Anchorage, AK 99518 and look at street view its an entirely different building
- Look at the picture of the store. Look closely at the logo, it’s been photoshopped onto the building
- The license plates on the vehicles outside the store are blurred, but they aren’t Alaska plates. Alaska plates are solid yellow. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vehicle_registration_plates_of_Alaska
- Go to the ATF website and download the list of Federal Firearms Licensees (FFL) for Alaska. Search the list, you won’t find them. https://www.atf.gov/firearms/listing-federal-firearms-licensees
- The website is registered in Iceland. You can look up the registration info by entering the web address here: https://lookup.icann.org/lookup
I didn’t do my research properly and I lost money. It was hard to find anything online that warned against using this store. Therefore I have created this site to warn people. Do yourself a favor and steer clear of these people.
