My preferred FFL charges $40 to do a transfer and I’m happy to pay it. Sure, I could find other places that only charge $25 but I would buy prefer my business go to this family run shop. No store in my area could ever come close to stocking all the guns I am interested in. I understand the stores have to Make a margin so I am happy to do my part to a point Which includes paying $40 for transfers and or buying from them and when they do have a gun in stock even though it may cost 10% or more than I can get elsewhere. There would simply be no way for me to buy guns I want without ordering myself and paying the transfer fee. Finally, a typical transfer with them typically only takes about five minutes. Why some gun stores make you wait and or make a big hassle out of the transfer is something I don’t understand. I walk in, they hand me the form, I fill it out, hand my license and conceal carry, give them 40 bucks and I am done. Really, the last transfer probably took all of three minutes of my time.
Made in Texas, in the good ole' U.S. of A.
I see plenty of shops selling for 20+ % margins. Adapt or die. People don’t use pay phones anymore, milkmen haven’t worked in years, TV repair shops are extinct, and the last encyclopedia salesman is probably contemplating suicide. I get it sucks cause it’s your livelihood but it happens to all industries. Going into retail is a risky proposition to start....expecting it to be career is even riskier. The fact is that the internet is the new gun store salesman and he’s more knowledgeable, more pleasant, and doesn’t smell like the dumpster behind the all you can eat onions buffet.
Also we had this discussion on a thread I started a few months back. Everyone shit on your point of view then. Not sure why you expected any different now. Despite what you may think about the trajectory of the gun industry the fact that some single mom can now buy a quality pistol for $300 by Shield is actually a good thing. Not having to forgo security for finance is a good thing.
Use thumb-size bullets to create fist-size holes.
The vast majority of transfers I have are for older models or discontinued guns or oddball guns not in stock and nobody willing to order.

Yeah, they do. Plus, last year, I sent them 40+ people that purchased a Springfield XDS 9mm. They take pretty good care of me.

Steer customers their way and they will do that for you.
