I've found an FFL hear in town who will transfer for me for $10.
IME, unless the unlikely situation exists that you will save more than
100$, FFL fees, shipping, insurance, and taxes make up for the savings
online. Sometimes you have to buy from a different than local source,
if you're a fussy prick like me, and you want specific firearms. Just
know most of the online savings will be lost to "getting the gun in hand"
