When buying more than one hand gun at a time, the FFL has to also fill out, file, and send in a BATFE Form 3310.4.
Plus in WA. there is the State paperwork per item as well.
I'm a gunsmith/manufacturer FFL.
For more than two hand gun transfers at one time, I charge $30.00 for the first one and $5.00 for the second. If it is a multiple transfer (more than two) I still charge $35.00.
Our local, full blown gun shop charges $30.00 or $35.00 per item, regardless.
To him, all transfers are an annoyance, rather than an income stream, and potential for new business. Weird...
Thomas Jefferson: "The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes....Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. Thomas Jefferson's "Commonplace Book,"
