Yep, it's the trap alright. I almost transferred one through them, but I started reading their form they have you fill out. First, their website said $30, but when I got in the store it $40 but "Oh, our website just hasn't been updated yet."Holy Cow! $5!! You can't beat that...
I have used Plano Pawn Shop, due to convenience. My office is just 5 minutes from there and they charge $15.
Aviator Dave....you must be talking about the 'trap' wanting transfer fee and % of value. Rediculous.
But do they transfer them from individuals? Their website says no. I've been using bigdaddy's guns. He charges $20 too, but gives a $5 discount for CHL and also a $5 discount for NRA members, so mine are just $10 each. The only thing he can't do is NFA transfers.Plano Pawn Shop does $20 per transfer. If you have more than one gun at that time to transfer it is still just $20
Really? Since anything I buy will be on a Form 4, he can do it? I asked him once when I was transfering a P7M13 and he said his license doesn't allow NFA items.Sure he can. He just can't do it on a tax-exempt Form 3. Lots of times that does not matter, for instance, if the item is out-of-state and on a Form 4.
I will have to look it up. Note it is only economical when the item is out-of-state and on F4. Otherwise you are paying $200 you could avoid. But if you are buying say a MP5 from an out-of-state owner, it is coming in to your state FFL on a $200 F4, and then to you on another $200 F4. So there is no additional cost, so use you can use a close FFL even if he does not have SOT.Any idea where I could show him the regs that he is in fact able to transfer them? He sure is closer than my other guy.
I'm looking to get my FFL in Collin County but keep hearing about this "Corporate route." Could you please explain this to me or direct me to some information that I can research online. Thanks.Not when I got my sear a few years ago. I just went the corp route and didn't bother with them anymore.
