I would just go to your gun shop first, they can tell you how to handle it, if they are interested in receiving it for you. Some shops won't. Once you work it out with the gun shop, buy what you want and your gun shop will fax or mail the information to the seller.

My local gun&pawn dude offered to handle it for me, including trying to get a "FFL discount" by talking to the interweb seller. There is a list of transfer-friendly FFL's on gunbroker, not sure how current: http://www.gunbroker.com/FFL/DealerNetwork.aspx

Default buying gun online

Do not, do not, pay more than $20.00 for a transfer. and don't let anyone convince you that you need to pay more for a handgun ttansfer than a long gun. Gunbroker has a lengthy list of FFL's that'll do you right. I live in dallas area and usually pay $10.00 for transfer. I don't understand why my FFL is so cheap actually, $20.00 is fair and reasonable and i'd pay that if he asked. Oh well, I'm not one to look a "gift" horse in the mouth.

Well it depends on what state you live in, WI collects a fee for running a state background check on handguns. There is no state check, thus no fee, on long guns. My LGS charges $20 for a long gun and $30 for a handgun, but due to the state fee, the extra charge is justifiable.

Quote from NRA/ILA website regarding WI handgun fee:

"A firearm dealer transferring possession of a handgun must have the transferee present identification and detailed information, complete a notification form, and pay a $13.00 fee. The information from the form is conveyed to the Department of Justice using a toll free telephone number for a background check for criminal history, involuntary commitment, domestic violence and tribal restraining orders. Forty-eight hours must elapse from the time the dealer receives a confirmation, that the buyer has passed a background check, before a transfer may occur."

Okay so I have emailed 3 different places that I found on gunbrokers website willing to do an FFL transfer one of them just replied. It's okay to ask more than one place at a time isn't it?

Absolutely...you are spending your money for the service, shop around for the best price. Just be sure to only commit to one FFL so that multiple licenses do not get faxed or sent to the seller.

Ruger- not to chastise you (I charge extra for that) but you REALLY need to go to Gunbroker, and read the BUYER tutorial.

You bought nothing FROM Gunbroker. You bought from a SELLER who LISTED the gun on Gunbroker. You should receive an email notice of winning the auction, and giving payment instructions. If you don't you can send the seller an email thru gunbroker.

You gave them a credit card to prove you are not some juvenile Vandal that falsely bids to screw up an auction, and then non-pays. If you SELL something there, the seller's fees will be charged to your cc.
