    I just bought a glock from an e-mail my AF buddy forwarded me. It's been gong around for a couple weeks now. I just picked up glock for 450 (150 less than my dealer wanted) and got it transfered to a differemt dealer for only 20 bicks. I've heard that is good. On of my other buddies paid 50 bucks in Claifornia. They are such woosies in Cali.

    Anyhow, here was that e-amil. Anyone esle get it and what are you paying for transfers?

    Didn't we just discuss this email? Hehe, oh well. For the most part FFL transfer fees are about $20 but there are other dealers that charge a higher rate cause they can. If you're the only dealer in like 100 miles, jack up the price and make some money on the deal. They do it unfortunately. There was one dealer here that wanted $25 for the transfer and I laughed at him and walked out. Two blocks down the road for $20. I don't believe in letting a dealer have more than he deserves on any deal. ;I

    I used to pay $10 per transfer, then a guy at work got an FFL and he doesn't charge me anything. I send him customers and keep him stocked up with the latest Shotgunnews and he hooks me up!:cool:

    I finally found a guy here that did it for $20. There are about 4 people in town that will accept a gun and they want 10-20% of the value. Rip-off at its best. :(

    I've ordered a few pistols from gunfinder,the price listed does not include the $20 shipping charge but they dont charge a ffl fee.my local dealer charges $35 for guns under $1000,and $50 for guns over $1000.considering I save paying sales tax I dont mind my local dealer making a few dollars.I use gunfinder prices to bring down my local dealer pricing,they will usually match the price,you pay the sales tax but no shipping or ffl fees.take your pick!

    If the prices I saw on their web site are their "military at cost" prices, I suspect this is either false advertising, or they need to find a better distributor. I've bought new Glocks for less than their prices.

    Their prices are good for a dealer, but I doubt they're truely selling anything at cost.

    As for transfers, $15-20 is a good deal. Some FFLs will charge a % of the gun's value. Some charge a flat rate. Some will rip you off and charge you sales tax on guns you've purchased from out of state. Always line up your transfer FFL and find out exactly what their fees will be before you make a purchase that'll require a local FFL for the paperwork.

    And the Feds won't issue you an FFl cause they are afraid you will be able to buy stuff wholesale. Nevermind that you would be able to fill out the appropriate paperwork instead of making untrackable private sales.
