Guaranteed to make more money? I doubt that. I don't se how doing transfers for almost 1/3rd the price will bring in more money. And it's a bit more than 10 minutes to complete a transfer, especially when you add in NY's paperwork requirements. And you're right, the liability is the same whether it's a sale or a transfer. But be assured that on a sale an FFL makes more than $10 which makes that liability a bit more palatable.

You wouldn't have to as she's immediate family.

I know all about the paperwork. We have to do both state and federal in ma. The per transfer fee may be cut but the amount of transfers will increase. Yes, you make more on a sale than a transfer but there is a lot more time and money invested in a sale as well as potential customer based problems such as returns and mechanical issues. I'm not saying that the government limiting the fee is right, I'm jut saying you're making it a bigger deal than it is. Your aggravation with the situation is understandable but your way of dealing with it is..unprofessional at best. Your first post turned away potential customers. Look to the bright side, you will have more transfers.

Every FFL in the state is dealing with it unprofessionally at best. I reallly don't care about turning away potential customers. I've only heard of one FFL to date that is willing to do transfers for $10. Three times the paperwork and all the liabilility for the same return, no thanks.

Your loss. Perhaps you're in the wrong state or wrong business.

Well, what about the fact that when the transfer happens, that guy might buy some ammo, or another mag, or whatever? And if you're a nice guy, he might become a regular customer and buy everything from you? The more people in your shop, the better, particularly ones who are actually there to do business, not just tire kick.
Around here, on LGS charges $25 to transfer, another charges up to $60. Where do you think I go?

Wrong state by far. I've my regular customers because they know they get the best service that can be had with attention to their needs. I'm sure you and the rest of the FFL's in your state will be full of glee if/when you get hit with the same mandates (which I hope doesn't happen).

We're talking NY here... Ammo? Background checks will soon be required to purchase ammo. Persons will be driving out of state or having friends/family ship it in to them if it can even be had. Another mag? In a few weeks there will be barely any magazines that are legal in NY. The whole point has been that you all should be aware that this can and might be coming to a state near you. And I'm sure you'll all be as happy about it as we are here in NY...

Mmmm, I don't think that sort of silliness is coming to NH (courtesy of the state, anyway) any time soon. Sounds like you need a new job, for several reasons.....
