Does anyone know of a Reputable FFL near the Arlington Heights/Buffalo Grove/Palatine Area.  I use to have someone but after years of doing FFL Transfers they retired from their day job and moved out of state.  I know I can have a lower shipped to my LGS but they all want $60-80.  Its crazy to pay almost as much to ship a lower as the lower costs.  I found a list on gunbroker of people who charge $20-25 but am concerned of who I might be doing business with and giving my personal information to.  Does anyone have a suggestion for someone that has been around for a few years and is trustworthy in the $20-30 range?

I appreciate all your suggestions!

Not near you, but IIRC 25 bucks - and totally solid.

Perhaps it is a good excuse to check out the Range at 355 ;)

Bargain Arms in Lincolnshire (I live in Palatine and it was about 25 minute drive for me). I got a pistol transferred for $25 two years ago. The guy is a kitchen table FFL, specializes in transfers for online sales.

I see first time transfers are now $30.

Alex Kogan of Misha Tactical in Vernon Hills, $25 for transfers.  I did 2 transfers for the past two years with him, great guy.

I thank you all for your help.  Either the guy in Lincolnshire or Vernon Hills are both with in a reasonable drive.  That said Lincolnshire is not far away from my office and would most likely be where I would go unless someone else suggests something closer.  

Again, I thank everyone for their suggestions.

On his website, he posted his store address as follows:

Misha Tactical Arms

Vernon Hills, IL 60061
(847) 478-3032

http://mishatacticalarms.com/contact.php

But on his facebook page, he use this address under long description:

Misha Tactical Arms, Inc

https://www.facebook.com/MishaTacticalArmsInc/info?tab=page_info

I did mine on the 1st address which is pretty much within Lincholnshire area (Olde Half Day Rd & Milwaukee Ave) near the Beer Market.

Herman is good peeps but he's not Lincolnshire.  It's actually closer to BG/Wheeling area.  Just a few blocks north of Target on Lake Cook Rd.

That zipcode is Lincolnshire. Couldn't remember exactly where he was located

Another vote for Alex, he's a great dude and has always charged me $25 for a single transfer. He works a 9-5 I believe so you have to schedule a pick up time with him but he's pretty good about it.
