Same in Nassau - Direct family member / face to face, does not require an FFL for a transfer.


But, has anyone actually done an immediate family member transfer w/o PLB breaking balls for the FFL transfer? Spouse is included in the immediate family clause, but they told me (phone) I still have to do the shuffle!

As of the last visit to the window to add a couple on the license, I had directly asked about the case of dual registration between my father and myself, and transfers between the two of us. My dad's not a spring chicken anymore, and a dual registration would make things a lot easier to deal with when the dreadful day arrives, when he can no longer pull the trigger etc. I was instructed that no dual registration was possible, and transfers were to be direct, with no involvement of a FFL required. As we all know, things change with no warning, whether it be the person you're dealing with at the counter, over the phone, time of day, wind direction, wipes back to front etc etc. Maybe somebody who has had a recent case will chime in.

As I said before I didn't realize till after you left that it was the same last name. You weren't chared 40.00 you were charged 20.00 and your son or father was charged 20.00. For a total of 40.00 dollars between the two of you. So it's 20.00 each. As I said before come back I'll refund you the 20.00 or 40.00 for both of you . Go to PLB and get it transferd for there fee if they charge you?

Class act and good business to offer to undo a mistake.

From the dealings I've had with Jerry, he is a stand up guy and ALWAYS does right by his customers.

I approve this message :good

Because you did not split it with him or pick up the tab.

If I was told it is $20 a transfer I would assume the whole transfer is $20 not $20 in $20 out. I never did a pistol transfer but for rifles it was always just one fee of either $20 or $25. Jerry stated he will give you a refund which is noble. It seems like a poor communication and he is trying to do the right thing.

Is campsites $75 purchase for a free transfer $75 total $'s or $75 to transfer the rifle in and $75 to transfer out?

You need to come back and pick up handgun first before you go to PLB and for your refund of $40.00. Then you and your Dad or your son need to go to PLB together and do the transfer.
Remember you must come back to me "first".

Ok I want to set the record straight, It was a handgun, and yes it was 20.00 in and 20.00 out, however I didn't realize it was a father to son until they left, so they didn't need a transfer from me to begin with. Just go to PLB and do transfer there. So they can come back I'll refund them the 40.00. I absorb the paperwork and coupons which no one knows about that have to be done on every pistol that goes in and out of this STATE.

PS I like the idea of Campsite, You spend 75.00 in my store and the transfer is free.

Should I start that?

Jerry

Yes, and can you add an espresso machine too? That would be nice. LOL.

A person to person is basically two transfers in terms of the work required. Receiving a gun from another FFL is much less work. That is why many dealers charge different rates for the two scenarios.

This is interesting. How does the process differ?

The handgun comes in from an out of state FFL or from a guy walking in with it. It gets logged in to federal and state/local books.

A guy comes in off the street either to pick up his gun from the internet or from the private seller. He does a 4473 and the gun is logged out of federal and state/local books.

What other steps are missing from the person to person transfer? Quite curious.

The incoming from a non licensee requires more entry into the federal book. I guess not too different on paper but on e-book its a full contact creation with all their information verses at worst just typing in an FFL number. We then have to do receipts for them to take it off their license and then the state book is more info that if it wer an FFL. We have an intake form we use for an individual which gets all of their info including employer and job. As compared to an existing FFL in our system, receiving from an individual takes 10x as long.
