Just called Dom's and they charge $60 for a PPT. Holy crap!
Does anyone know of a place in the Livermore/Dublin/P-ton area that does PPT for less? Does Big-5 do transfers on handguns?

I've been to this place and their gun prices are good, compared to Dom's and Reeds in San Jose. If you reload, you can also buy powder at roughly the same prices as Miwall at the gun shows. I haven't bought a gun from them yet, but I would go to them before considering Dom's.

Thank you both. I'll be going there tomorrow.

Yeah, thanks! So will I. It really is so nice to find a shop that doesn't seek the maximum profit from a PPT.

It is pretty hypocritical to have a shop owner ***** about CA gun laws and then ask you for $100 to do a transfer. If they really wanted to make it easier on the average folks, they'd drop their prices WAY down (and this is from a dyed in the wool capitalist)...

BTW, I called the Livermore Big 5 to ask about transfers.

Me: "Hello, do you do PPT firearm transfers?"
Woman: [pleasant voice] "Yes"
Me: "Handguns as well?"
Woman: [freaked out] "NOHANDGUNSORAUTOMATICWEAPONSGOODBYE!!" http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif
Just like I wrote it. She sputtered the last sentence out in one breath, without pause and hung up the phone on me. Funny! http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I was thinking a FFL CAN'T charge you more for a PPT sale. I did PPT's with in the last two years at Traders (bolt action), Big 5(semiauto rifle,& a handgun last week at High Bridge Arms in S.F.. All where $35.00. I really think chargeing more is a BIG NO,NO?

You might be right, so only the transfers from out of state are $70 and up?

The fee for a PPT is regulated by the state. It is $25 for the DROS plus $10 for the dealer. If you do a true PPT, meaning that the seller and buyer sign the same DROS form, and you will need to do so because the S&W 1006 is not California-certified, and if the dealer charges you more than $35, let them know. If you have any questions, give the California DOJ a jingle.

OK then, How about best prices for an out of state transfer (coming into CA)?

BigMac at Irvington Arms is less than 60bucks. He is in Fremont and post here from time to time. Real good guy all around.

Bigmac is definitely a nice guy. We need to support him all we can after the robbery incident - make sure he can get back on his feet and keep going forward with his business.

Yeah, but I didn't think it was very nice when my son offered to buy a Colt 1917 with all the money he had and BigMac turned him down.

Granted, my son is three and all he had was a dollar bill - but still... http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif it made me very sad.

So to confirm- Bigmac charges $50 for out of state FFL?

jdberger

That is what I understood him to have said, Saturday.

Eh? Are you serious? http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif What if Bigmac said "ok, son, you have a deal" and your son truly expected to be handed the pistol, but in reality didn't get it? Wouldn't that just confuse your son even more? http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Not funny at all.
There are some real a-holes working in some of these Big-5's, and they're doing things against corporate policy (i believe there is no policy against handguns). You need to remind them they can lose their job very easily

Sorry "Socalguns" you are wrong on this one. Big 5 does not do PPT on handguns and they are NOT required to do so.

Most dealers who DO PPT on handguns or long guns charge in the area of $35.00 Mim. to $55.00 max
Dealer to dealer transfers are a different story and are NOT controlled by the DOJ. These charges at most larger dealers run between $85 and $150 plus sales/use tax.

Irvington is great, but if you don't feel like driving, Michaels gun shop behind Hooters in Dublin is there. Go during the week, the old man that works there is real easy to deal with, but his son Michael is kind of out there.

They all charge the max allowable under law.
I've been to about 5 Big 5's in the bay area,
and they all had prices listed for transferring
a handgun.
