As C3 said, you will have an opportunity to work out the details with the seller. I have gone to my bank and obtained a money order and mailed it to the seller, so I could get the gun for the cash price. My bank does not charge me for MO's.

First gun I bought off GB, we went through paypal at the seller's request.

Another option is send the seller a personal check, let them ship the gun after the check clears. I have done this with internet purchases also.

Your credit card is an option, but some seller's add 3 to 4 per cent to the price, this is supposed to be disclosed on the seller's GB auction information regarding the terms of the purchase.

Alright I talked to the FFL license dealer and he said he would fax them the FFL. I pay the $20 for the FFL when I pick up the gun right?

Unless he asked you for payment up front, yes. When you go to pick up your gun, you will do the same paperwork with your FFL as you would if you bought the gun from him. He will run the background check, when he gets approval, pay the man, take gun, go home.

But first check if your FFL has anything you need to buy for new gun- ammo, cleaning gear, sling, scope, holster, etc.

Ruger goto your local dealer he has to send the FFL papers in. and all you do is pay for gun and freight and the fee the FFL dealer charges you. It's easy
