    Gun transfer fee ?

    I am thinking about trying to purchase a shotgun from an out of state seller. With the assumption the seller will require the gun be shipped a gun shop that will complete the transfer I am wondering what I should/can expect to pay as a fee for this service ?

    Am I correct in thinking I will need to send the seller a copy of the gun dealer’s FFL license ?

    Thanks in advance

    For the private out of state sale of a shotgun, he mails or ships it to your ffl. You pick it up at your ffl. That keeps it legal. I always ask my ffl if he's able to receive and give him a heads up. He also emails a copy of his license to the dealer if I'm buying from a dealer.

    $20 seems to be the charge for most around me.

    I've seen charges as low as $15 and as high as $50. Where are you located and I'm sure someone can point you to a proper place with better rates.

    Unless you have a dealer you spend a lot of $$$ with I would call around to see who will give you the best offer. If you are a loyal customer some ffl’s will waive a fee for an occasional transfer.

    I pay $25, but it's impossible to beat the convenience of my guy. He let me pick up my last purchase at 10:45 PM.

    I was getting home from a work trip that night.

    Of course, it's been a long time since I saw bed before then anyway.

    Yep, need to know location.

    My preferred is US Defense Solutions (they have recently increased to $20 for cash, when they used to be $15 for cash). I drive past a lot of FFLs to get there, because they provide good service, for a good price.
