I am not from the area and canít seem to get a person at any number? Looking to buy a pistol pp, but trying to find an FFL who is currently open for ppt?

A CG favorite FFL is Rob Blank, RMB Enterprises in Milpitas.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong...

My go to is usually Elite Armory in Castro Valley but they haven't been doing any PPT's as of last month. Haven't check if they started doing them now so best to call.

I have done a couple at Richardson Tactical in Hayward. That's probably the closest to San Leandro.

I did a PPT last month at Guns Fishing & Other Stuff in Dublin. They were doing PPT's Tue through Fri with no appointment needed. I met up with the buyer around 2pm so there were very few other customers there and things went as well as can be expected- despite GFOS bad rep. Tell the guy at the counter when you walk in the door what your there for.
Elite Armory in Castro Valley said they were only doing PPT's Wed & Thurs.
UGI in Fremont would do it by appointment only and several weeks out for that appointment. Dom's in Livermore just flat out said they weren't doing them at all.
I'd say go to GFOS in Dublin early afternoon on a weekday (closed Sun & Mon) as that worked out ok for my transaction. Good luck.

There’s also a Solar Tactical location in Castro Valley just around the corner from Elite Armory. I think they’re doing PPT daily until noon. I’d call them to confirm before going.

GFOS Is an absolute horror show. If you need to go for a PPT in the Castro Valley area, Dom's in Livermore is pretty damn good.
