So, I've never bought a firearms from someone out of state and am unfamiliar with the process. I understand it must be shipped to an FFL, but I have a bunch of questions I'm hoping you all could help me clarify:

1. Do FFLs usually charge for having a firearm shipped to them? Do these rates vary?
2. Can you recommend an FFL in Orange County to work with on this? (Fowlers, Ades, Turners, other?)
3. Once the FFL receives the firearm, is there any additional waiting period besides the standard 10-day wait?

I'm hoping to buy an Armscorp 1911 from out of state, if that helps answer any of these questions.

Thanks!

1. Do FFLs usually charge for having a firearm shipped to them? YES Do these rates vary? YES greatly

2. Can you recommend an FFL in Orange County to work with on this? (Fowlers, Ades, Turners, other?) sorry I don't live in socal


3. Once the FFL receives the firearm, is there any additional waiting period besides the standard 10-day wait? Nope just the standard 10 day cali wait


make sure the gun you are purchasing is on the approved list or you will go through a lot of trouble for nothing.....

The only additional wait you may have is the 1 new handgun every 30 day rule.

So if you have bought a handgun new in the last 30 days, you will still have to wait for that period to end before you can DROS.

Is the Out Of State FFL you bought from set up to deal with the CFLC?

Here is a link of what it is, incase you are not familiar.

I recommend Jim Bowen out of Huntington Beach $50 out the door ($25 fee + $25 DROS), he is super nice and helpful, just not OLL Friendly.

Here is his website.

Thank you for the recommendation.

I have not purchased any handguns in the last 30 days, so no issue there.

Thanks for the info about the CFLC, as well.
