zfields 08-19-2010 8:41 PM

Looking for an FFL in the Sonoma county area for a transfer in the next 30days or so.

All local shops are looking for 200+, so Id rather drive 50-60 miles and give my money to an honest FFL dealer before the gouge shops.

Modesto area FFL for PPT
 
Can anyone recommend a FFl near Modesto that can handle a PPT with the seller shipping the shotgun to that area? I'm the seller and i'm in Socal.

kemasa 09-15-2010 11:57 AM

It is not a PPT unless both the buyer and seller go to the same FFL.

oversteerdawg 11-07-2010 9:10 PM

I'm new to the LA area and am looking for a good (read cheap) FFL that is fairly close. I live in Marina Del Rey and work in Beverly Hills. According to the sites posted above I either gave to go fairly far or pay $100+ for a out of state transfer. Any recommendations?

Agent Tikki 11-09-2010 2:52 PM

I'm also in the LA area, Torrance/South Bay area to be exact. Anyone know of an FFL close by that doesn't charge an arm and a leg, and/or accept shipment from an out of state private party?

ucbruins 11-14-2010 6:45 PM

Try looking at Fort Courage in Simi Valley or Sharpshooters in Torrance. Fort Courage posts fees on their website.

Agent Tikki 11-15-2010 5:02 AM

Sharpshooters charges $45 for ptt. Not so bad but they insist on selling a new loxk with every transfer.

kemasa 11-15-2010 10:19 AM

$45 for a PPT is illegal, so it is bad. A PPT is limited to $25 for the DROS and $10 for the FFL.

ucbruins 11-15-2010 9:43 PM

Let me know where you decide to go. Fort Courage was closed today but should be open tomorrow. I work near Sharpshooter so I wouldn't mind going there either.

$25 for DROS
$10 FFL

+$10 gun lock. They insist on making you buy it.

kemasa 11-16-2010 10:03 AM

If the firearm comes with a lock, as required, and they require you to purchase a lock, then that would be a violation of the law.

Agent Tikki 11-17-2010 6:33 AM

For ptt, they require a lock. For new firearms sales no loxk required.

kemasa 11-17-2010 9:48 AM

As I said, if a certified lock is included with the PPT firearm, then it is illegal for them to require you to buy one. The fact that new firearms do not require a lock be purchased (most include a lock), tends to show that it is a profit issue.

deutschman 03-09-2011 5:24 PM

My brother and I are trying to locate a good FFL to transfer a AK from Atlantic Firearms.
We called City Arms, but they said they could not/would not do it. The guy who picked up the phone at City Arms (strong eastern european accent!) seamed like he had no idea what he was talking about when I told him what I was wanting to do. I spent about 5 minutes trying to explain to him what I was trying to do and he was clueless.
This was weird because Atlantic Firearms has them listed on their site as a FFL.
Next we will try Bullseye in San Rafael.

Any suggestions?

Thanks guys!

Looking for an FFL in Apple Valley, Victorville, Phelan, Hesperia to help me purchase my AR Lower Receivers or AR rifle. I am aware that I will need locking magazine release and a 10 rd or 10/20 - 10/30 magazine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

kemasa 03-30-2011 5:28 PM

FYI, an AR lower receiver does not need to have a locking magazine if there is no upper on it since it is not a semi-auto firearm. There are bolt and pump uppers (at least in the past). Before you can put a semi-auto upper on it, your would need a locking magazine release.

applevalleyjoe 04-01-2011 7:23 PM

You may be right but every FFL that I have spoken with will not process the lower unless it comes with a RADDLOCK or they install one!

You haven't spoken with enough then. :D

If they believe they can install one, then they must be assault weapon dealers by their thinking. If they tell you it has to have a BB on it, then it can only mean they believe it's an assault weapon without it...right? So why are they accepting assault weapons and putting bullet buttons on them?

kemasa 04-02-2011 12:06 PM

You can ask them why, one issue that they might be missing is that it is not a semi-auto firearm, therefore the restrictions don't apply until you put a semi-auto upper on it. Ask them if you need the BB if you put a bolt action or pump action upper on it.

As said, it has to come into CA in a legal configuration, so the FFL can not install the BB on it IF it was required.

You might not be able to find a FFL who knows the requirements, but you might keep checking in your area, there should be one or you might be able to educate one.

Chancey 05-26-2011 10:46 AM

Looking to order a rifle from buds gun shop online and can't get ahold of an ffl in Santa Barbara area that will do it. Any suggestions?

kemasa 05-26-2011 11:51 AM

How far are you willing to drive?

Are the local FFLs not willing to do any Internet order or just from Bud's?

It might be best to start a new thread though.

Are you sure it wasn't our neighbors, Lock, Stock, and Barrel? They charge $75 and are literally the door next to ours. We charge $60 for a transfer and that price is posted on the wall behind the register. Hope that clears up any confusion.

If I buy a handgun online from a store from out of state, in order for me to get my gun is to go through a FFL? How do the fees work? Do I have to pay the FFL fee + DROS fee + CA sales tax?

All firearms shipped into CA must go to an FFL. If it is a handgun, it must be on the safe list of handguns approved for sale (unless you are a cop or you are doing an intrafamilial transfer with letter).

Yes you pay the FFL transfer fee, the DROS, and the CA Sales Tax if the dealer asks for it. Legally the dealer is on the hook for the sales tax, but some dealers don't collect it and by doing so agree to pay your taxes come tax time. However, at the same time, you are supposed to pay use tax on any out of state purchases as well.

BlackRain17 07-12-2011 12:30 PM

Thanks tenpercentfirearms. I'm a fellow Bruin too. Aren't you glad we went there before all the fee hikes?

cgood311 07-12-2011 5:44 PM

What is the average FFL fee. Im seeing in my area an $85 fee. Seems steep to me? I talked to the sales guy at Bass Pro in Rancho and he said $75 is a rip off, which is what they charge to take in a FFL.

kemasa 08-03-2011 9:43 AM

Fees vary. When you consider the costs and issues, I don't think that it is fair to call the various fees a ripoff. You would have to look at their overhead and perhaps they just don't want to do it. The first rule in consulting is to never say no, just name your price. If you don't really want to do something, you name a high price and the person will either pay or go away.

With that said, there are places which are lower. The lowest I have heard about is $10, the highest is $150. Not sure of what the average is, but I would say that $75 is still a bit on the high side, but not completely unreasonable. Remember, not all service is the same.
