Thumbs up New FFL in the San Jose Area

Wanted to let everyone know I am a new FFL in the southeast area of San Jose (unincorporated area). I’m open by appointment only on evenings and weekends, but answer emails and phone calls between 8am and 8pm everyday. My email is peter@mparms.com and phone is 408-528-1453.

My website is: www.mparms.com. Granted, it needs work, but gives you a good idea of what I have.

I am mostly do transfers and special orders, but am a stocking dealer for LMT and Stag. I also try to have some Glocks on hand. All my prices are below MSRP.

Some of the items I have in stock right now are:
Stag Lowers: $130 (plus tax and DROS)
Glock 19's, 22's and 23's" $489 (plus tax and DROS)
RRA Lowers: $150 (plus tax and DROS)
Stag Model 1: $935 (plus tax and DROS)
Next week, I'll have a few LMT's coming in and a couple of WASR 10's.



My transfer rates are:
Long guns: $55
Handguns: $65
Single Shot Exempt: $80
All fees include DROS.

Cash only on transfers, but I take credit cards on special orders and in-stock products.

Look for my banner ad soon!

Thanks for looking.

Nice to have another option in the South Bay that doesn't charge a fortune for transfers I may be seeing you in future. Best of luck to you.

Thanks. Hopefully it will work out!

To the quotes above:
  • PPT is $35 as mandated by the state. No dealer can charge more than that.
  • Single shot is $80 because it is a bit of a grey area and more of a liability for me.

  • Looking into the Sales tax issue, turns out I am supposed to collect it per BOE regulations when accepting transfers from out-of-state retailers who do not charge you tax. So officially, it is my responsibility as the firearms retailer (see http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=355057 ) to collect the tax. Yes it sucks, but it's the law I guess.
gray area? ok

The FFL that I've been using in the South Bay only charges tax if they sell me an item. If I purchase an item from out of state they only charge the transfer fee.

"when accepting transfers from out-of-state retailers who do not charge you tax"

How do you know what I paid & whether I paid the tax ? Do I have to show you
a sales receipt ? Or do I have to get the out of state vendor to send you the
sales receipt ?

I emailed Peter and he got right back to me. Seems like a great guy and from what I can tell he has the best transfer fees in the state and good prices on glocks which I will be getting from him when I have the money
