    Pt 738. $149.99

    For those who live in the SE PA region and are wish to purchase a 738, my LGS is selling the as below. They include the FFL fee in their price for an in store sale. The store is Target Master (Targetmaster.com) in Chadsford, Pa. Other than buying there and using their range I have no relationship with the company. Just a kind of PSA on my part.

    Taurus Model PT-738 Pistol(#1-738031FS) - .380 acp, semi-auto, 6 rounds, $149.99

    To be sure, that's a super for a NIB TCP! I have to say tho, that any dealer that charges a "FFL fee" for a product that they stock and sell is ripping the customer off . I can kinda see doing so for a transfer for a sale from an on-line seller i.e. Bud's Gunshop but otherwise no dice. If the FFL fee needed to be forwarded to BATF that would be another story, but it's not.

    Doesn't matter whether the gun you're getting has been shipped to your dealer and you're picking it up or you're buying it out of his in-store stock. When he calls in for your FFL background check he is charged for it. It comes out of his pocket so why shouldn't he be reimbursed for his cost.

    That's a great question. He should also be reimbursed for his water bill, electric bill, payroll tax, and payroll. Oh yeah, don't forget his business license and whatever other local fees are added on. Wow, those gun prices are going to skyrocket!

    No, because they are normal business expenses but the background checks are specifically charged for gun transactions. It is not an expense the shop has for other sales and it is a charge to him for any gun transaction and only for a gun transaction.

    To my knowledge, there is no charge for the FEDERAL background check! In Wisconsin, there is a State mandated background check for handguns that is separate from the Federal background check. There is a $10 fee for the State check, so yes, I can live with paying that fee. I know of more than one LGS that charges above and beyond the $10 State fee and that is clearly not right (I "window shop" in those shops and purchase elsewhere). What chaps my a$$ is the FFLs that charge a "service fee" for a required check that costs them nothing or more than the actual fee for an item that they are selling and supposedly making a profit on. I can sort of see a "service fee" on a transfer of a firearm in which the shop had no part of the transaction i.e. online purchase, person-to-person transfer etc. Some FFLs in my area charge $45 for this "service" but in my mind, it's just a penalty for NOT buying through them. Again, I can sort of see the reasoning but if I want a particular firearm and have asked them to order it and they tell me that they can't get it, they shouldn't have an issue if an online seller has it in stock now (and usually at a much lower price). I'd even go along with them purchasing from the online seller and paying a reasonable mark up but for some reason my LGS is unwilling to do that.
