Default Bay Area Shops Open for FFL Transfers?

Hi All,
I have been out of the game since the Kevin Smith days sadly came to an end. I of course get an itch and come back during this craziness; are any FFL's in the East Bay doing online purchase FFL Transfers? Who is your go to FFL that is still open and has reasonable fees? Thanks and stay safe!

There is literally nothing open right now. If you're in Walnut Creek, I would try Primo Tactical. They are only open Monday through Thursday if I recall. And only from 4:00 p.m. till 8:00 p.m.

Those are good people in there.

They do seem legit. They politely and respectfully responded that they are 100% sold out of inventory, and that they're unable to do business at the moment. I will do business with them in the future, but seems like they're closed for now. Good seeing familiar names still holdin it down here, playa. Stay up!

They should all be open soon because yesterday the Trump administration's Homeland Security Department declared gun shops as an essential business.

I wish this were the case; I've called and emailed more than 5 shops in the East Bay all are either closed or open for pickups only. Thanks for the tip about elite armory plus; I'll give them a call.

Yeah I've never heard of them before doing the ppt but they have a pretty decent shop, definitely worth a look.

$100 for PPT or mail transfers. $100 for a ppt sounds high, I saw that price was fixed by the doj?

Thanks. The old west gun shop is nearby me and they are charging the usual cost for PPT which is good. I think they don't typically deal with msr, but pistols and bolt actions should be fine. They charge a $100 storage fee if you don't pick up 24 hours after your pick up date.

Richardson Tactical is $50 for PPT, means used gun from person to person in the store.

Guns shipped, or ordered to the store, you pay $100 for the transfer plus $50 background check.

Richardson tactical was the only store in the south bay that stay open during the shelter in place order.

Thanks for the confirmation. I have an email with Todd trying to schedule a ppt for Monday but he never finalized the schedule. I was going to ask him the PPT price. The usual cost is 37 for dros and 10 for the transfer.

If anyone is interested, Mike at Ballistic Precision has done four FFL transfers for me in the past few months. Located in Santa Clara near Levi's Stadium. Appointment required, but only because everything is very organized and personalized. He's a dealer for Falkor, Cobalt, Radian, etc.. and taking orders for rifles at the moment. My buddy is reserving one while there's still inventory.

Highly recommended! Well worth the drive once an appointment is made.

I am not sure about the PPT fees since I only did FFL transfers with my firearms. He's operating so if you have questions, it'd be best to call.
