He just got all his final stuff together yesterday. It'll be nice to have a transfer dealer on this side of the hill. I like Roger's, but it's not worth the $20 savings to drive to Santa Clara.

Does anyone know what Outdoor World charges to receive a gun now?

$100 for out-of-state... don't know what their PPT fees were, probably the maximum. Nice guys in Outdoor World, and they'll handle ARs.

I'll have to go check out this place in SV though... its nice to have more choices around here

I've done a ton of transfers at OW back in the day. They did some out of state for me for $25 in 2005 when the OLL craze started. Then they upped it to $50 then $75, now $100... that's why I quit going there. The guys were great, but the price got to be too much.

Check out Perry, he'll be up to speed in no time.

Thanks for the heads up!
Met him at his old shop when I was looking into shaving a stock down for the wife.
Very nice guy, his son actually used to work at Outdoor World.
Regards,
Mike

He's learning about OLLs. I'm sure he will in the future. DOJ has him pretty bamboozeled still. Give me time, I'm working on him.

BLFD1,

Just got back from my second trip to Ralston's ($200 bux later) and the new shop is a HUGE improvement over the old. Still the same nice guy he always was and now with actual inventory. My new bow is running like a top and I couldn't be happier.

Still trying to sell him on a new website (my business) in trade for a Liberty One bow but I don't think he is interested. It's a shame because his site did not do the old shop justice at all, much less the incredible new store. Never hurts to try I always say.

Just a heads up, he charges a total of $75.00 for transfers (not the $85.00 previously stated).

Now if I can just find someone local to help me put together the wife's new AR LPK I'd be in heaven.

Regards,
Mike

My ears were burning. David Ralston here, Perry's son for those not in the know. Yes, Dealer transfers are 75 dollars (25 DROS 50 handling and storage). PPT will get you for 35 of course. We are the cheapest in the county for transfers . As for OLL and accessories. Dad is open to recieve the lowers, its going to be a bit before he stocks them in the store. Accessories are available for order, just tell him what you want and he'll put it in for you. Also, he is a very active dealer for davidsons (galleryofguns.com). Just order online, pay the minimum deposit and my dad handles the rest. Really competitive prices and the prices listed are all inclusive. shoot me a pm if you have any more questions.

Slight update, our lovely representatives at the DOJ office had a hiccup and dropped the shop off of the CFLC list which resulted in us falling off of gun genie (galleryofguns.com) it will be back up this afternoon.

How much is the Dealer's Record of Sale (DROS) fee?
The State's DROS fee is $19.00 which covers the costs of the background checks and transfer registry. There is also a required $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, the dealer may impose other charges as long as this amount is clearly shown as a "dealer fee" and not misrepresented as a state fee. In the event of a private party transfer, the firearms dealer may additionally charge a fee of $10 per firearm transferred.

When settling on the purchase price of a firearm and before completing the transaction, you may want to ask the dealer to disclose and identify any and all fees he/she is charging to complete the transaction.

(PC Sections 12076, 12082, and 12806)

I want to sell a gun to another person, i.e., a private party transfer. Am I required to conduct the transaction through a licensed California firearms dealer?
Yes. Firearm sales must be conducted through a fully licensed California firearms dealer. Failure to do so is a violation of California law. The buyer (and seller, in the event that the; buyer is denied), must meet the normal firearm purchase and delivery requirements. "Antique firearms," as defined in Section 921(a)(16) of Title 18 of the United States Code, and curio or relic rifles/shotguns, defined in Section 178.11 of Title 27 of the Code of Federal Regulations that are over 50 years old, are exempt from this requirement.

Firearms dealers are required to process private party transfers upon request. Firearms dealers may charge a fee not to exceed $10 per firearm for conducting a private party transfer. Example:

For a private party transfer involving one or more handguns, the total allowable fees, including the DROS, safety, and dealer transfer fees, are not to exceed $35.00 for the first handgun and $31.00 for each additional handgun involved in the same transaction.
For private party transfers involving one or more long guns, or a private party transfer involving one handgun, the total allowable fees, including the DROS, safety, and dealer transfer fees, are not to exceed $35.00. The dealer may charge an additional dealer-service fee of$10.00 per each additional firearm transferred.

I must be missing something here....you say you charge $85 for a PPT and then post the law that says total fees cannot exceed $35?

This has been discussed a ton...the clear intent is that dealers are not supposed to charge more than $35 total for a PPT. The maximum 'shop fee' as you call it on a PPT is legislated at $10 (mandated to encourage compliance with the 'all PPTs must go through CA dealers' requirement).

But what about "storage"? I mean something has to pay the rent?

The most a dealer can charge as the state fee for processing the paperwork on a ppt is $35.

This is not a DOJ regulated fee, it is a fee charged by the shop that is holding the weapon, almost like rent as freonr22 pointed out.
$25 of the $35 is a state fee, $10 of the $35 is a dealer fee. All dealers are required to adhere to that (and, in my experience, they do). Mind you, this is ONLY for PPTs, not dealer transfers from online retailers, gunbroker, etc. On those the dealer is free to charge whatever the market will bear.

And something tells me that freonr22 wasn't being totally serious in his post...

The information that I have supplied is directly from the DOJ agent that assisted my father in the set up of his shop. she is the one that supplied us with the fee information so that we would be clear on what can be charged and when. she clearly stated to us that this is how the fees work, the 10 that is collected is for the dealer doing the paperwork on a ppt.

Here's a handy chart:

For dealer transfers go to these guys for $75
For PPT go somewhere that only charges $35, which I know at least 3 off the top of my head.

Okay so it's not really a chart.

And that's probably not the last time the CA DOJ gives you incorrect information.

Anyway, like I said this has been discussed to death. BAGV had a similar thread last year (they remedied the situation).

I recognize that $10 on a PPT sucks, and you guys should be able to set your own prices, but given the situation as it stands it's unfair to dealers that follow the max dealer fee mandate when others charge more.

It is definitely something that we will investigate further, if we are incorrect than you can bet we will adjust the prices accordingly. If DOJ confirms what they have already told us then we will get it in writing from them.

Well done, and correct. I have been by the shop, just prior to Perry getting firearms in, and had a nice chat with him about my Damon Howatt. I will definitely be back.

Thanks for updating us. It's nice to see a dealer who will admit to a misunderstanding and correct the situation so promptly.

So, are you guys comfortable with OLL's/ bullet buttons/ off-list AK's and what not? Outdoor World handled the transfer of my AR awhile back, but they charge $100 for a dealer transfer, and as I'm in the market for an AK, I'd much rather take my business to you guys from now on. Plus, I grew up in SV, and anything to support a new shop in the county would be great.

As long as it is off list I don't see a reason as to why we cant do the transfer for you. and just to clarify, it had been MY misunderstanding on the fees. My father is the dealer.

Gun genie is back online, Great place to purchase guns through and the prices are all inclusive (taxes, fees, shipping etc.) The best part is the customer doesn't have to do any of the work, Davidson's and the shop handle all of the shipping and notification for you.

Hey David, it's Rocky. Good to hear things are going good. Been really busy lately, will have to come in soon to enjoy the coffee. Tell ur dad I said hi.

Glad to see we got the fees issue worked out. I was gonna say, I've done a bunch of transfers through you at ODW, and the PPTs were always $35.

Check out Ralston's guys. Perry and crew are good folks that have put a TON of work into getting us a local FFL.

$75 for out-of-state transfer is pretty good these days, considering some shops charge 150-200 dollars in the Bay Area with lots of other shops competing for the same business.

I have been here a few times for some bow stuff. Perry seems like a nice guy, and seems to be interested in learning new things about firearms.
I will definitely be using them for PPT and an FFL for out of state. It is nice to have an FFL in SV because I work there.
