I have been looking at getting some new to me handguns. I would like a Nagant revolver and maybe something else. The hard thing for me is I see them at J&G and SOG with great prices but then you have to DROS and go thru a dealer. I ask arout and it for the Nagant it looks like it will cost about $99 + shipping then another $70 for DROS and dealer fee this is a tough for me to swallow that I have to pay almost double. I have my C&R and will be getting my COE soon does anyone know of a cheaper way? or do I just have to bite the bullet (Pun intended)

If you have your C&R, mail/fax it to J&G, then drive there to buy your pistol(s).

^ that, and while you're there, get more guns, ammo, or other goodies

Yep, make it a trip. You'll burn quite a lot of gas, so you better buy a lot of guns to make up for it :)

That way you'll also get to pick the gun yourself.

That's what I will be doing.
Planning on buying all pistols and revolvers.
Hoping for a Walther P1, Nagant, Tok, Mok, and a rifle or two.
At least that is what I think I'm going to get. Wait till I get there and things may change.

I didn't like that so much that I got me a SECOND 03 C&R FFL in Nevada (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=343730) so I could just have what ever C&R gun I wanted sent right to me.

The C & R is for long rifles only; not pistols. It still has to go through an FFL.

Unless you are out of state.

It costs me probably under $70 each way to drive to Phoenix and back.
I imagine Prescott is similar.

So with shipping and transfer fee if you buy more than one or two handguns you win and picking in person is priceless.

NOTE: You still have to pay $19 to the DOJ for each handgun within five days of reentering California.

No, if you travel out of state... to Arizona for example, you can cash and carry a pistol from a retailer like J&G (the one we're all talking about here) if you are an 03 FFL holder... on a related note, guess where Im driving Friday? :D

I wish I were farther down south to be able to drive there for only $70. I've toyed with the idea of driving down to bring back some goodies, but it looks like it'll be more expensive to drive than to fly for me.

Google maps says I'm 750 miles from Prescott, so round trip would be 1500 miles. If I get 30MPG (very optimistic), and at $3.50 a gallon, that would be $175 on gas alone. Amortize the cost of tires for a 1500 mile trip, and that's another $120 gone. At a total cost of almost $300 just for gas/tires and a combined 24 hours on the road, I might as well fly. Tickets to PHX is under $200 round trip, I can rent a car for a day for around $40, and spend $20 on gas. That way I can do it all in one day, and hell it would be cheaper too.

On the flip side, I would have to buy about 5 or 6 handguns just to break even. If the total cost of the trip is $300, DROS+transfer is $65 each, and shipping for each gun combined comes out to $11 each, I would have:
300+19x = 65x+11x, 300 = 57x, x = 5.2 guns.

That being said, I do intend on going to AZ sometime later this year, so to make it worth my while, I'll probably be bringing back quite a few new friends...

Don't forget to buy some food (ammo) for your new friends. They'll be pretty hungry by the time you get home. :D

On C&R handguns purchases out of state in person like JG sales. Does the 1 per month apply? Im thinking making a trip also , I mailed my 03 C&R cause they dont take faxes. Or thats what I was told.

No it does not. You can purchase and bring back to California as many C&R handgun as you want.

Just remember when you get home you have 5 days to register them with California (http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/forms/pdf/curioapp.pdf) and $19 per handgun you bring home. :)
