What fees can I charge in addition to the DROS?
In addition to the State's $19.00 DROS fee, you must also charge a $1.00 Firearms Safety Testing fee and a $5.00 Safety and Enforcement fee. If the transaction being processed is a dealer sale, consignment return, or return from pawn, you may impose other charges as long as this amount is clearly shown as a "dealer fee" and not misrepresented as a State fee.

(PC sections 12071(b)(11), (12))

Turner's has a $5.00 dealer fee in addtion to the state fees above.

There's rumor they will remove this $5.00 fee for CG members in the future...

420.00 (gun)
32.50 (tax)
25.00 (dros)
5.00 (handling)
25.00 (HSC)
-------------
507.50 is what I should expect to pay tomorrow right?

I don't want to get blindsided with an extra 30-40 "fee" stuffed in there and will already ready be drooling over the gun.

this is my first handgun. my rifle purchase was almost too easy for me.

They charge tax on that $5.00 handling fee. So add another $.38 to $.44 to your total (depending on local sales tax rate).

Sorry, had to put it out there. I'm no fan of a "handling fee" and I'm definitely not a fan of added taxes.

it's the nickle and diming us is what makes them rich. *sigh* oh well.

I'm sure the state needs every penny to fill the $16B hole...

One FFL dealer said the state collected so much money from the fees to fund the DROS system that there were talk about reducing them but I doubt it'd happens...

You don't need to pay the whole amount up front, just 30% to get the DROS started.
