That what my dad told me as he is a gun collector doesn't have much left after the house was broken into while on vacation but some home defense and hunting rifles. But he told its easier and better go to gun shops and gun shows instead of odering online

Talk it over with your LGS, OP.(should also be an FFL there)

I feel for you,OP. I live in Florida, too, and gun prices are a little nuts

here, I admit. But I have to agree with DAN,(thank you, sir)

IME, if you order a gun online, it's going to run you @100$

extra, by the time it hits your hot little hands. Sorry.

My experience has been finding what my LGS didn't have

online, if I got a good deal online, by the time all was said and done,

and i was walking out the door with the gun, I'd paid @ what the

LGS would have charged me, if they had it in stock, anyway.



So yeah, if you can pick it up at J&G,(probably a bad idea, for a few reasons)

you can get that

Mosin Nagant for $89.95. Otherwise, you're going to double the

price in ancillary costs, which many internet users conveniently

omit from their posts.

If so you would need to return after that period and pick the weapon up. But there are no additional charges or cost that I know of!

Ditto! It is the same process here in Florida.

Pretty much in most cases. I had a customer buy from Buds but had to pay the 3% fee and the transfer fee and turns out I would have sold him the same gun for like 5 bucks less. Although I've seen retail prices cheaper than I can get them wholesale, so it depends.

I make many of my purchases online because they ushually ship free, no IL state tax ( around 9%) and only costs me $20 to transfer to my ffl.

I do transfers.
Customer sees a firearm on an auction site.
Customer gives me the FAX number of seller (Note: I FAX a copy of my FFL)
I get tracking number from either the buyer or seller.
I arrange for one of us to be home when delivery is expected.
Call buyer, do the 4473 with the buyer and background check.

My costs are the FAX line, time to be there for delivery, insurance, license renewals, and $5 to the FDLE.
I charge the customer $20. $15 goes to my expenditures.

Am I getting rich? Not at this rate. But the buyer has the responsibility of purchasing the firearm, shipping, and sales tax. And I have plenty of repeat customers who buy online.
