$35 + tax for a LTC transfer at Euless Guns & Ammo.. I had a meltdown lapse in memory when I checked out at PSA and put them instead of DFW Shooting Sports as the local FFL for the transfer.. This place is fairly close to the house but I never go in there.. The guy that "helped" me reeked of cigarette smoke and had the customer service talent 1/2 rung above a box of hammers..

I remember filing away in the back of my peanut head that this place was pretty much useless.. Had a reminder of why today..

Don't feel bad. I used Academy in Grapevine a while back without checking to see what their fee would be...I assumed it would be reasonable. It was forty freekin dollars---NEVER again!!

If it makes everyone feel better, I purchased a LH Tikka .308 from Chad, and had him ship it to Healdsburg California. The plan was for my stepson and I to go together to pick it up, for his graduation present. And that's what we did, drove to the gun shop and he did not know why. They placed the box on the counter and he picked it up, immediately loving it. I said "that's yours, and it'll last you forever".

I got out of there for $95. But that boy's elation was worth it, and more.

be sure to watch them, they charged me $50 on second to last Transfer, plus they take too long to log it in and call when your gun is in.

I now use a buddy, good people.

I got flamed the last time I complained about a company's FFL fee. What you're quoted was a fraction of what I was quoted.

I asked a local New Gun shop how much they were going to charge for Transfers and the Owner Said $20 minimum or 10% of the price of the Gun, Which ever was Higher. I said thanks and went Out the Door and have never been Back.
Could you imagine transferring a Custom $2500-$3000 Gun at a 10% Transfer Fee!!
Oh BTW,
He went Out Of business in 4 Months. Go Figure.

He doesn't even have access to the price of the gun. Why would he do that?

I'd just tell him the gun cost $50. Got a great deal on it. What a stupid policy. It certainly doesn't cost more to transfer a more expensive gun.

Used to be $10. Dang.

Does that Pawn Shop and the employees remind you of Pulp Fiction?

Transfers are easy money. Blows my mind what some outfits charge.

The butthead at the pawn shop in Decatur refused to receive a firearm from a private seller for me several years ago...tried to tell me it was illegal. He hasn't seen my credit card since.

Did you miss the word "California".

Having a gun shop at all is a feat in and of itself. Those guys have extra rules they have to follow, and pay extra fees to the state. I told them we (Texans) call this Comifornia. They laughed and said they did too. They congratulated me for living in "a free state".

I'm usually all about people in the industry charging according to their time invested, in doing that my prices are $40 or so, high enough that most people go elsewhere. The 10% idea is one of the dumbest ideas I've heard.

Incredibly easy. But if you treat it like a business and not a hobby you have to charge according to time invested. So if you have 30min invested with a shop rate of $80 an hr...

I don't remember the dealer, but one in Lubbock and another in El Paso charge $100 per gun.

Several places here in Slidell charge me 25$ and I feel that's fair for both of us!

When I lived in Euless I was screwed by Euless Guns & Ammo, never went back. I went in DFW Shooting sports once and felt un-welcome because I had my young son with me. I had the boy right at my side and the guy tells me, "don't let him touch anything". I left and haven't been back.
