I have always purchased my weapons in the store however, I am looking at purchasing a hard to find Sig Sauer and buying it from Bud's online and shipping somewhere in San Mateo County. What fees, taxes should I expect to charged and does it differ from shop to shop? If so who does it cheap around here or in Solano County?

Thanks in advance.

Fees vary a great deal. Most times when buying in a store the retailer will waive the dealer fee and only charge for the DROS. When buying on the internet...you should FIRST shop the different FFLs in your area to find the best deal AND make sure they will receive your gun. Anywhere from $50-$70 (dealer fee + DROS fee) is considered a good price. THEN, there is the matter of tax...some dealers will collect tax on your out of state purchase...unless it is from an individual, and not a retailer. So you should also ask about this when you're shopping for an FFL.
