Do the Missouri FFL's commonly accept a firearm from an out of state non FFL for a transfer? Usually I don't seriouly pay attention to the "FFL must accept from non FFL" type ads. But there is this Browning Hi Power............ I've done the FFL to FFL before but never for a handgun.

What part of the state?

We have several members here that will do the transfer or others that can be recommended. I would not pay ober $20 for a transfer and if they say they have to collect sales tax, kick them in the shin and run away.

The guy I listed in the 'cheap FFL' thread specializes in transfering into MO and has zero issue with accepting transfers from out of state non-licensees. Might not be helpful if you're not in St Louis.

My favorite FFL:

$20
Will accept rifle or handgun from an individual*
NO SALES TAX added, unless he buys the gun and sells it to me.

*if a FFL accepts a shipment from an individual, they must include their ID.

Thanks. I looked through the transfer thread before posting but didn't see it mentioned. I'm outside KC.

In St Louis, there are a few places that will not accept transfer in of an item they can order or normally stock. I don't know if this is a common practice in the industry or not, but it rubbed me the wrong way.

Last time I was in need of a receiving FFL, I called Metro Shooting Supplies in Maryland Heights (now Bridgeton), the guy on the phone stated that they "don't accept any transfers from non-FFLs and the the sending dealer had to mail them a signed paper copy of their FFL by certified mail, so we know it's really from them. When we get their FFL, we'll call you and then you can tell them to ship us the gun." And transfers were $35 + sales tax.

^ + MSRP or higher pricing = I don't know how they're still in business...

My work has an employee firearms club which does $10 transfers for members

Yeah, that's a little odd, but I totally understand their side of it. If they have a G19 in the case, why should they take on all the emails, liability, logging it in & out, storing it, etc to sell you the same G19 so that you can save money. You can thank the ATF and Fast & Furious for their paranoia. But like last year at this time, if you're going to wait months, to get a G19 due to the shortage and you find one on the EE, it would be nice of them to bend their rule.

Some shops charge $40-50 for transfers, 10% of purchase price if new, or their markup on that model. Again, makes sense to me.......they're a retail shop, and it's their business plan to sell the guns they have in the case to make a profit. Providing a service for the e-commerce transactions that hurt their business model should bring them some sort of profit.

That's why I use FFL's that are in business to do private or GunBroker transfers. They charge $20, work out of their house or other business, and don't have a problem with all the paperwork--that's their business model. They don't have a case full of guns and monthly rent payment they have to support by selling guns.
