View Full Version : Where to transfer in Berkley area?

07-04-2005, 7:55 AM
I have a possible sale on my Ruger PC9 carbine, and am meeting a fellow half way. He is coming from Santa Rosa, I am coming from Sunnyvale, so other suggestions would be appreciated as well.

Any suggestions for a dealer around the Berkley area willing to transfer a rifle? Can be a little North or South, but we are trying to stay pretty close if possible.

Thanks in advance!

Fremont's not all that far from Berkely and Irvington Arms in Fremont, run by a board member here, is a great shop for pretty much anything. Give them a call.

Not far for me, but still a whole lot further for the fellow who has to drive back 10 days later.

I was hoping to save him a drive, and stay closer to Santa Rosa. But thanks for the suggestion!

Try San Leandro Rifle and Pistol Range at 510- 638-9605. I had them do a transfer in 1998. That was when I was still at Cal. Not sure if they do it anymore, but you can call and ask. Too bad Seigels is out of business.

I live in Berkeley. The absolute closest place is Old West Gun Room, in El Cerrito. Next closest is Traders (I think) in San Leandro.

Go to the Big 5 Sporting goods in El ceritto. They are the cheapest to do private party transfers.

There are no gunshops at all in berkeley by municipal decree.

I did a PPT at Old West gun room in El Cerrito. . . the transaction was smoothe, and the gentleman there was very nice. No hassles, no problems, paid my federally mandated $35, and it was done.

Thanks to all who have replied. As it turned out, the original buyer decided to pass, a decision that was made very honorably. A local fellow (our own Maxicon) picked it up, and we conducted our transfer at Kerleys.

I do appreciate the suggestions, and will keep them for possible future use. I also appreciate the chance to meet Maxicon, we had a very enjoyable hour or so at Kerleys.
