I'll find out tomorrow for sure when I ask the LGS but I was wondering if you buy two do you have to pay the FFL fee twice also or is it up to your FFL?
Yep - When rate creep happened I could deal/reason with shops that I had a good long term relationship with - and kept my previous price. Big boxes - rules - that is all! I now have a guy at the club - LEO who does FFLs for club members $10 lowers, $20 guns.I bought two lowers a few months ago and used a new FFL for them. They charged me the 20 (standard rate) for the first one but only charged 5 for any others during that visit for 25 total. Instead of 40 total. But I'm pretty sure it's whatever/however they want to do it.
You might want to shop around...
I find that shops/FFL like the one I go to that specializes in gunsmithing, finishing, restoration, etc usually do transfers for less than places who make most of their profit from actually selling guns.You're paying the FFL holder for his time. Some see you buying online as taking business from them and as such their transfer fees are higher, or they will refuse to do them all together. That's their prerogative. They could do it free if they want. I actually know a place that does free transfers. I've been going to the same guy for a few years now and he gives me a discount on multiples. I pay $25 for the first and $5 each additional.
