All FFls around here charge $5 for the NICS. The transfer fees range from $10 to $50 depending on what FFL you go to.
If you're buying a C&R (03 FFL) firearm, there is no paperwork other than sending a signed copy of your license to the seller. They can ship it straight to your front door. If you're buying a firearm not on the C&R list, then it's handled just like any other on line purchase, and you must have it transfered by an 01 FFL (dealer).chunk351 said:if you have a C&R can you do the paperwork yourself?
