My fav LGS charges $25 for up to 3 items. That's why i tried my best to order 3 items if i had to. And the next item 4th, 5th and so on, $5 each.

Had a gun store open up near me a few months ago. My first visit to it one of the owners told me they'd charge only $10 to do a gun transfer. I was very much surprised by this. He thought it was ridiculous what most folks charged for a transfer.

My FFL does up to 5 transfers for $20, including the mandatory state call in fee of $5.

From free to $55.

I can't understand the rationale of a person who would frequent a shot who charged a ludicrous amount.

No idea. Most in this area run $25-40. You just have to look around and find a reasonable price. I used to poke around that store but their prices have completely turned me off.

My local FFL takes care of me for $5 so long as I have the paperwork filled out when I show up and all he has to do is put the serial numbers on it Anywhere else is $25-$35 around here

The 4473 is supposed to be filled out in the presence of the dealer.
