Cheapest way to get a shipped gun?
I'm trying to buy a Ruger online from out of state and I was wondering what the cheapest way to get it was. As I understand it I need to pay the price of the gun, tax on the gun, and some fees the FFL I'm shipping to charges. Is this correct? and to follow up does anyone know who the cheapest FFL in Orange County is?

Canyon- CA has a requirement that any FFL Dealer shipping TO a CA FFL Dealer must register with the CA DOJ. Many dealers in other states just will not do that.

When ownership is being transferred across a state line, it must come TO a FFL holder in your home state, Does NOT have to come FROM a FFL. While some dealers will not, a FFL can RECEIVE a firearm from anyone- they DO need ID on the sender so they can log it in to their bound book.

If you go to, there is a "find a FFL" function. These are dealers that have registered with gunbroker as being willing to serve as a transfer FFL. Put in your zip code, will pull up folks in that area. MOST list their charges.

C3 hit it on the head as usual, I just will add that the cheapest FFLs that do transfers are usually your pawn shops or home based. If it list by appt only, it's probably a home based FFL. So do some shopping around.
