Hi guys,

So, I bought my first AR online. I need to have it shipped/transfered here in the Bay area. Does anyone have any contacts, or know of a FFL dealer who's in the bay area and doesn't charge a lot for the transfer fee/paperwork. DROS is standard $25 anyway. I need this info asap, because I've already made the purchase, now needing a local FFL dealer's info...

Thanks in advance! :)

P.S: Willing to drive up to 70 miles radius within S.F.Bay area.

Depends on where you are in the bay area. Bob's Guns in Martinez is a hole in the wall but is cheap and permissive. Some other places are much more expensive (Bullseye in San Rafael) or don't accept black guns (Old West Gun Room in El Cerrito). Give Bob Marazzani a call, I think it was $75 out the door for me which was way better than anything else around.

+1 on Roger's Relics, they charge $65 to receive long guns I believe. Give them a call, they are very nice.

Kevin Smith in Martinez always comes highly recommended. It's been a while but the last time I was there it was $25 + DROS.

$25 + DROS sounds great! That's a $25 + $25 (Dros) + $15 (Gas) = $65 Total OTD. :D






Edit: I'm calling around, and found out we have to pay TAX too now on buy a gun from private party or another state. So they will Tax the price of the gun, shipping, and FFL fees (Tax on everything; can't believe they'll tax shipping and the fee too)....Everything taxed will total up another $100. Wow... :( Anyone knows how this works...

Mt Pleasant Arms has the lesser fee last time I checked. He's a calguns sponsor as well.

+ 1 for Kevin Smith, he is great and fair. Give him a call. 925-229-2553. He doesn't charge taxes, you just sign a form saying you'll take care of it. I think he is $50 + dros for the first long gun.

And you shouldn't have to pay taxes on ppt, unless the ffl was involved in finding the buyer (consignment).

I've seen a few FFL dealers asking $40 for paperwork +25 for DROS. How do I go about filing tax, if I do it on my own?
