PPT or FFL transfer....All ppt fees are regulated by the state and should be $35 bucks everywhere!

Folks...for private party transfers...EVERYONE is supposed to have the same state mandated $35 fee. $25 goes to the state, $10 to the FFL. If someone is trying to charge you more than $35 for a true PPT...there is a problem and much has been written on that in these forums. Al B. (SOCAL)

PPT fee is limited by law to $35. PPT means a face-to-face transfer between two CA residents at the same dealer at the same time.

Dealer transfer fees, however, are not limited. Is that what you meant?

ETA: Too slow, sorry

Answer the guy's question. Some dealers don't charge the full $10. I think the guys from T&A or somewhere down there used to do free PPT Thursdays or some such thing.

Clearly the OP knows that the PPT is limited to $35 total, he wants a better deal than that.

Sorry, I charge the full $10, so don't drive to Taft. Well unless you want to buy something else, then I will consider waiving the $10.

Thank you.

Yes T&A Armory in Santa Ana waives their fee on SUNDAYS. I was hoping to hear of others who do the same.

Sorry for getting off topic, but what about a private party (non FFL) sending a gun to my FFL, is that still considered a PPT?

Yes it is still a PPT, but on this kind of transfer the FFL is not limited to $35. Some FFL's will not accept shipments from private parties.

To keep the terminology straight, no it is not a PPT. A PPT occurs when both buyer and seller come into an FFL with their valid CA IDs and conduct the transaction. Anytime a gun is shipped and the buyer and seller both do not come into the dealer, that is just considered a transfer and the FFL fee is not capped.

Now the transaction is still a sale by two private parties, so sales tax is not involved, but I would not call it a PPT unless both people go into the dealer.

To add to what Wes said, it is a private sale, but it is not a PPT. As said, PPT has a specific meaning in CA. There are several selections for submitting a DROS and if the firearm is shipping, it ends up being a dealer sale.

So, back to topic, does anyone know of ANOTHER place, besides T&A that waives their fee? Either in San Diego(Oceanside) or Orange County?

I don't know of anyone in your area that waives the fee for PPTs...quite the contrary, most are peeved they can only charge $10...lol...it's slightly more paperwork than a dealer transfer and it's a regulated fee...so most charge what they can...$35 out the door. I mean honestly, is $10 bucks really worth the headache?
