Did he show you the courtesy of giving you a reach-around?The prick should have taxed his fees only for the transfer.

I would have told the prick to send it back, and found another dealer to do the xfer..

FWIW, I charge a flat $10.00 fee for transfers.. Hell All I have to do is log it in the book, and call the background check in...

The amount they charged you is way more than most dealers even make on the sale of a new gun...

That makes the $35 that I pay seem negligible.

I was let known that I "wasn't listening" and that "the tax must be paid."

Remember - I was a dues-paying member of this club.

Terrible treatment of a Second Amendment Supporter.

I used to sell class I firearms and knives to a guy who seemed nice enough. He got a Class III dealers licence a couple years ago and I thought that might be handy. I met him in a local gun shop and asked him what he charges for a NFA transfer.... $500. I thought he was "In the business of" having obtained a licence- apparently not.

Regardless of taxes, anyone who tallys up the charges for a transfer and it's over $75 with no out of pocket expense to the dealer, needs to re-check it or decline the transfer beforehand. I"m not an FFL but I know such a charge would certainly not make me any new or repeat customers.
