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 :)

    • This we all agree on... So, you also believe that you can point a gun at someone who HASN'T broken any laws, and you can yell "FIRE" in a crowded theater, even when one doesn't exist?  Just because of "feelings" or you don't like the LOOK of someone?

    • And this, The term ‘semiautomatic assault weapon’ means any of the following, regardless of country of manufacture or caliber of ammunition accepted: “(A) A semiautomatic rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any one of the following: “(i) A pistol grip. So, that would be ANY semi-auto with a pistol grip, any caliber...  
    • Yep, did you see this one too? (D) A semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any one of the following: “(i) A threaded barrel. So, any pistol that you can order a threaded barrel for, is also banned.
