NICS & Transfer fees for multiple firearms

Recommended Posts

IM curious before I put an FFL on blast.   What are you guys paying to transfer (4) firearms, all at the same time?    1 pistol, 2 AR lowers & 1 shottie.   I will post my experience in north NJ from y-day afterwards.

I'm going to say, it highly depends on the FFL in question, on how they wish to handle fee pricing for multiple transfers on a single NICS check.  There's a vendor here that probably never wants to see me again if I decide to do a bulk transfer like that one time, but he's still my go-to guy. :D

When I was in NJ, I charged $40 for the first, and $20 each additional if done at the same time, plus $15 NICS, totaling $115. 

Here in AZ, it would be $50 total, because of the local competition.

they originally charged me $65 times FOUR!  the cashier rang up $294 (w/tax)!  ....until I lost my sh*t, then settled around $130.    Now I understand why their range is always dead on nights & weekends!  Sad part is, Im literally 5min away and will never drop a dime there!     THIS is why I prefer to only deal with one or two FFLs.   too many assholes around me in north NJ. 

even tho I drive 90 mins to GSSC in Brick, he's has been the BEST in the business, and worth the 3 hrs trip!  =Never been treated like a 2nd class citizen, especially as a newbie!

Was this the legit rate or possibly a cashier screwed up on transfer?  Didn't ask for the transfer rates ahead of time?  Or FTF transfer?

 and if GSSC is the best why weren't you there in the first place :p

bc it was a transfer to my brothers wife & we did not have time to drive to Tony!   time frame was too short to get it done.   =lessons learned!

i never asked for the rates, since I assumed it wouldnt be much more for the addt'l firearms after the initial transfer.  i was soooooo wrong!

Figured them. I'm 5 min away also and I have shot there and it's a bit expensive but convenient for the range. I wondered why it was always empty as I pass the place a few nights a week. It's a bit pricey and it's annoying you need to buy a $10 membership card just to shoot there. Annoying also how multiple employees will be at the counter and you wait for 1 to set you up with range time as they help someone else and the other employees stand there talking. They also sweep your brass into a pit as you shoot and its lost. I hope they make some customer service improvements there as it's so close and would like the place to stick around. But I just dont see the place lasting very long to be honest.

here's my complaints......transfers fees are rediculous & u need to fight with them to get any paperwork stating you handed over your firearms to them for a transfer.  No receipt, no COE, no nothing.  I will no longer be using them for ANY transfer.   

I've shot there once, it is a nice range.  had to teach sister in law to shoot before her 1st permit expired.  i will be writing them off as a retail store for the bullshit.  If I ever used the range, i will bring ALL my stuff, pay range time and not give them a penny more.

I visited the range about a month or two ago and it seemed fairly packed.

Alex, & Chris, okay to bring up your issues with them?

I have no problem with you bringing the issues up. Like I said I want the place to succeed as its soo close to me.  I just dont see it lasting. It's mostly customer service issues imo.  The sweeping brass right into the pit as you shoot is annoying. And when your waiting and 5 or 6 employees are standing talking for a few minutes and then start to help you after you waited a for 5 minutes is quite annoying. And its probably something management or owners dont even know. But it's happened to me on 2 of my 3 trips there. And like I said maks I pass there multiple nights a week and have shot on multiple weeknights and on a Sunday afternoon there. 1 of the weeknights there was 1 other lane occupied at around 7:30-8pm. The other time just 3 lanes occupied. On a Sunday afternoon there were maybe 7 lanes occupied. I hope it's enough but I dont see it being enough volume to last. If theres anything I can do to help them improve I'd be willing to.

i complained to the manager and he made me feel like he was doing me favor to shut me the f*ck up!  fortunately, neighbor works with the owner at his corporate job (not the range) and my neighbors son works there.  I was told the range is for the kids to run.  

I cant wait to give him an earful about my wonderful experience, -lol.

You did a FTF using them and they would not give you any paperwork stating you turned in a firearm to them....

I hate paperwork but even i give that to the customer :)

    • How about buy it or build it anyway and enjoy it?
    • When you post a question, you wait for an answer. Eleven minutes is not long to wait. A full day made you look like a troll.
    • Please don't mind the negative comments.  We are a group that are constantly under attack and any new poster is met with a level of suspicion.  Welcome to our board!  Stick around and get to know us better....You won't regret it!  Some FFL dealers responded to you that it is legal for your parents to gift you a gun without being able to take possession. The general consensus is it would be much easier for you to pick out a gun in California and have your parents pay for it or reimburse you.  Good luck and you have very nice parents!
    • Wow, I didn't expect this would start such a paranoid flame war. Just had a question and I figured this forum would be the best place to ask it on. Just to put some fears to rest, I am a legal gun owner in "Commiefornia" (we do exist). My parents simply wanted to get me a special gift as a surprise for my birthday later this year, but I wanted to make sure they wouldn't get themselves in trouble or anything. Thanks to everyone who offered some much needed legal advice. I'll let them know about getting me a gift card as an option instead if they don't want to deal with the hassle as well. Thanks for your time!
    • Lets go through the whole thing:   2C 39:1 w (5) A part or combination of parts designed or intended to convert a firearm into an assault firearm, or any combination of parts from which an assault firearm may be readily assembled if those parts are in the possession or under the control of the same person. "A part of combination of parts" First per TITLE 13. LAW AND PUBLIC SAFETY CHAPTER 54. FIREARMS AND WEAPONS you are in possession of 1) "Rifle" means any firearm designed to be fired from the shoulder and using the energy of the explosive in a fixed metallic cartridge to fire a single projectile through a rifled bore for each single pull of the trigger. 2) "Firearm or firearms" means any handgun, rifle, shotgun, machine gun, assault firearm, automatic or semi-automati crifle, or any gun, device or instrument in the nature of a weapon from which may be fired or ejected any solid projectile,ball, slug, pellet, missile or bullet, or any gas, vapor or other noxious thing, by means of a cartridge or shell or by the action of an explosive or the igniting of flammable or explosive substances. It shall also include, without limitation, any firearm which is in the nature of an air gun, spring gun or pistol or other weapon of a similar nature in which the propelling force is a spring, elastic band, carbon dioxide, compressed or other gas, or vapor, air or compressed air, or is ignited by compressed air, and ejecting a bullet or missile smaller than three-eighths of an inch in diameter, with sufficient force to injure a person   So right there we could stop. Because you aren't in possession of parts. Now in Title 13 they do not define "parts" or "readily assembled" --> That is up to the interpretation of intent and opinion letters. However they define "manufacturer" and they include a lot about parts in there:   "Manufacturer" means any person who receives or obtains raw materials or parts and processes them into firearms or finished parts of firearms, except a person who exclusively processes grips, stocks, and other nonmetal parts of firearms.The term does not include a person who repairs existing firearms or receives new and raw materials or parts solely for the repair of existing firearms.
