He's not a gun shop. He's another business just has an FFL. Cheap and close so I thought I would let him do it. I at least got to strip down the rifle and check it out today. I can't wait even more now!

That must be what's happening - and I wouldn't miss the opportunity to let the owner know that that is the last transfer he will ever do for me. It's bad enough having to comply with that ridiculous 10 day wait without also having to wait for some jerk to get on the ball.

BINGO! Everybody at my company operates under our FFL.

Maybe the owner will kick you down some ammo for that first shoot when he finds out what a hassle you had due to his miscommunication. I would certainly ask for some kind of compensation; is there any work they could do to this gun while they are storing it for you?

Of course, the FFL guy probably only has $30 or so coming for the transfer.

Bingo! He should reciprocate with at least a box of free ammo!

Good customer service is what gets me 90% of my customers! He should make it right to you one way or another. When people decide they want a gun the want it right now, not next week. He might only be making $20.00 for the transfer but if he did you right I am sure you would use him for a transfer again. His employees should call him ASAP and do the transfer for you.

100 and 50 THOUSAND PERCENT agreed!!

There isn't enough margin in the private gun market to make you a millionaire, so return customers are a MUST.

We don't make but pittance on transfers in, but customers that use us for the transfer, frequently they also use us for a trigger job, sight replacement and or other tasks on the transfer item. Plus, they have a repartee' with us, so they come back when they want a rifle, or a new weapon they need counseling on....

Anyone looking to screw over a customer on a simple transfer won't be "in business" very long, even as a side business....

He is full of sh@t. ON file? All the time it takes is to fax a copy of your FFL over. I have a scanned in version of mine signed and stamped keep for file that I email. Since the electronic documents act from years ago you can fax a signed version.

I do it all the time. You should not pay one penny more then $25.00. He's just trying to stick you with some of the markup he's loosing since you bought it strait from CDNN and not having had him order it himself and jack the price up.
