I called a local gun store in Garland @ Beltine & l30 for to do a FFL since they're 2 miles from my house. Dude quotes me $75.00! I don't mind paying a fair price for a FFL fee, but that's highway robbery. Went through GT Distributors for $25.00. I haven't been to that store since they were buying ammo from local stores, and marking it up to ridiculous prices. Lesson learned on ever using their services, or visiting their store again.

I agree, but then I do!'t understand why they're listed as preferred dealer on Bud's gun shop website.

Get ready... If Hillary gets her way we will all be paying FFL fees to keep guns in the family after a member passes away. And that's a fee for each gun to put them in your name. They just keep making it harder and harder for good people to have and keep guns. SMH

Think of how many people will just say screw it...it's not worth it, and not keep granddaddys guns.

Wow.....$75? That is outrageous. I'd send Bud's an e-mail just to let them know. I use a couple of pawn shops within a few miles of where I live and both are $25 and never try to cross-sell. Highest I've ever been quoted is $35.

Got a local place like that and I think it's just what they feel like that day charging. Needless to say I don't shop there any more and I've bought plenty from them prior to that.

They have always treated me right when I bought from them and the wife bought a few guns and leather and she always seemed to think she was treated fair.It's been a few years since we stepped into their shop but we still have friends that still shop there.

Will never do business with them, and wouldn't advise anyone else to. Bunch of thieves over there.

Was GT Distributors or the other store marking up prices on ammo?

It was the other store. The guys at GT were very helpful and eager to get my business.

There is a page on Gunbroker where you can find local FFL dealers that will transfer for you. They even have most of their prices.
