Forgive me for not jumping in on this earlier, I’m out of town at the moment.
I am the seller, and I had recommended J&J Gunworks.
He is local to me, and I have bought 2 firearms through him before. His transfer fee then was $45, and I didn’t think it was too unreasonable. Last one I bought was a shotgun in Nov 2019.
Frankly, I was pretty taken aback when I heard what J&J was charging for the transfer this time. Had I known he had doubled his transfer fee, I wouldn’t have recommended him. That’s ridiculous.
I’d have to go back and check my purchase records, I don’t know if he charged me a 3% fee for a credit card.
The ammo thing, well honestly, I kind of get it. He doesn’t have much, and he wants to be able to sell it to people purchasing firearms from him.
To me, that’s a reasonable point.
@axeman_g, I’ll reach out to you when I get back in town. This never sat right with me.
No, c'mon.... it is perfectly reasonable to walk into a place of business, start a transaction, and then after it is all started ..... only then ask about how much said transaction will be, and complain abt it.
Then, doubly complain - and get upset by a snarky comment and besmirch someone on a public forum - 'cause i feel i paid to much'.
Why is it gun owners feel that everyone has to drop their drawers on pricing just because its guns or ammo?
Good for you. And welcome aboard.
I started out wanting just one pistol. I'm now in the middle of redoing my garage so I can continue playing with firearms on my lathe and milling machine. So yeah, it goes that way.
