View Full Version : NEED FFL For a PPT

05-18-2009, 5:59 PM
I have a friend in my area that needs an FFL.

Here is the deal, correct me if I am wrong.

Seller is in Fresno. Seller can complete the transfer form and ship the pistol to the buyers FFL. FFL takes down buyers information and conducts the PPT...Fee should be $35.

My friend is being quoted by dealers for FFL transfers... If I am correct any FFL's willing to do this for the proper price? If I am wrong then anyone wiling to contact me so I can get my friend worked out?

Although there may be work on this in the future, for now both the seller and the buyer must show up in person at the dealer for a true PPT.
A PPT is defined in the penal code, so unless you and your friend are able to show up in person it is not a PPT in nature. The transfer can still happen, although since it would not legally be a "PPT", as the buyer and seller are in different location; there is no legal maximum fee. A dealer may charge whatever he sees fit to do such a transfer.

Since this kind of transfer is not a "PPT" the handgun roster applies, so the gun you wish to transfer must be rostered.

Interesting. Thanks.

I get this question all the time. It is not a PPT unless I can Physically ID both people and they can sign the DROS in person. Otherwise, its a regular transfer. As long as the handgun is rostered, I'll accept it from you with a copy of your DL in the box with the gun. The buyer gets DROS'd, HSC'd, Gun Locked and Safe Handled. Fees are the same as a regular transfer.

Hope this helps.

I figured I would use this same thread instead of a new one.

A person is required to wait 10 days for a "cool down" period. Is there anything that says a friend or other person with permission from the owner of the firearm can pick it up on behalf of the DROS'er?

I expect the answer would be yes, there are many reasons why an authorized person could not, but I would like to know if there is a factual, legally based one and not the common sense reasons.

No, the actual buyer must pick up the firearm in person. He must also sign the 4473 at the time he picks it up. NO EXCEPTIONS are allowed by law.
