    Trying to find an FFL dealer in SoCal that will do a pistol transfer for a reasonable fee.

    I tried Gunbroker and most of the contact info was out of date. The one I was able to contact wanted $50! I guess I'm too cheap :)

    Anyone got a connection ?

    Thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Chritian Doomanis in Burbank. He has a real job at this office during the day. The FFL is his afterhour gig, so be cool when you contact him. He's the last of this kind in LA - be thankful.

    He was charging $20 before but I always paid him $40 anyway (because I feel that's how much it's worth). If he's at $40 now then we're even money. $20 DROS is mandatory, that doesn't count.

    You're still saving a bundle from gun store markup plus taxes.

    You think YOU got it bad...

    New fees include the $25 Handgun Safety Certificate (new as of Jan 1, 2003) that replaces the old $25 Basic Firearms Safety Certificate that you bought last year, under the guise of it being a "lifetime" certificate.

    Expect the dealer to bend you over, there are no two ways around it. Check out the CD Firearms guy. It's good to support the little guys, because they won't be around much longer.

    You could also try Redstar Military Museum in Cluver City, or Crown City Pawn in Old Town Pasadena.

    Unique pawnbroker near the 8 and 805 bypass. I was charged a flat $10 transfer fee about 2 years ago. Hope to be back in America's finest city for block leave.

    I think I may use him after all. I noticed that he will do a transfer for $40 if you're an NRA member. That's very, very fair.

    At least I'm exempt from that stupid Handgun Safety Certificate thing.. One thing to be happy for I guess.

    Thanks for your ideas !

    Ade's Gun Shop
    225 So. Tustin Ave.
    Orange, CA 92866
    (714) 744-3373
    Ade De Blasio

    Ade is a great guy and shares this shop with a coin dealer. He charges $25.00 for the use of the FFL per gun and I think it was $24.00 for the DROS. If it comes from out of state, he doesn't charge sales tax. That's $49.00 out the door over the guns wholesale price. If you can find a better price then what he can get it for, he'll mail is FFL to that dealer. Marshfield Arms( joe@galibois.com or www.galibois.com/marshfield/ ) has great prices and sells on www.gunbroker.com . They also already have Ade's FFL on file. Give Ade a call.

    I feel bad for you Kali guys....

    My FFL charges $15 and it's always 5-10 minutes in and out.

    Last transfer he did for me, two guns came in at the same time. He charged me $15 total for both guns. :)

    Once again, $20 to DROS + $20 to Christian = $40. This guy deserves much appreciation for helping us out.
