i can't stress enough how helpful you all always are and how grateful i am for having found this forum
Sounds about right, like Car54 said you might want as much paper just to be safe. Have them at the very least notify you when they have set everything up. I use e-mail, which for me is a great way to keep records. I also like to use credit because I have fraud protection, and I can verify payment. But as has been mentioned many dealers will want another 3%.

Why they gotta charge for the background check? That in itself is a scam. That call costs them nothing. If you say you don't care about $2 for the check, then you don't get the principle of the matter.

Skullcrusher, here in Fla, it's $5 for the check. I had to cough it up being a LEO and also having a CC permit when I bought a .380 and an AR.

Clarify if WV means Western Virginia or West Virginia (the state). West Virginia has not been part of Virginia for a long time now.

And thank us for saving you a trip to the pen. The BATFE has been known to setup stings in cities near a states border. Savannah and Jacksonville are two that I know about...

Stings have been done along the Ohio river as well.
