They are real nice guys. I work next to them at the Miami Gun Show. By the way, Shoot Straight does transfers for $25. GARY.
Since when is SS $25? Last time I asked the Lakeland branch it was $50. Same for Apopka(although that was probably 10 years ago when I asked them).

Most places in Orlando, that I checked when I lived out there, was $40+.

Local pawn shop in Auburndale is $30. He sells guns at good prices, so I haven't had a need to buy new guns elsewhere, although I do mostly trading and buy used guns.

Loyal customers often get cheaper transfers at many shops. As well as other perks. I hate the guys who ask what a transfer costs then complain about the $5 background check fee and a three day wait.

It's the "free shipping" paradigm. The shipping cost obviously isn't being paid by the seller, it is being added into the price of the item sold. Many people will only look at items with free shipping or flat rate shipping when making their online purchases even though it will cost more in the long run. Personally, I'd rather FFLs throw in the $5 call in fee as opposed to adding another 'gotcha!' charge on the transfer. There was a dude who did that when I first moved to Auburndale. Not only did he tack on the extra $5 after I called and asked what the out the door price was, he then decided to play the cash only game when I arrived.

Pretty good folks there at Freedom Firearms. I have a customer loyalty card from Freedom and every 5th transfer is free, just pay the $5 call in fee.

It's two separate transactions. First you pay $5, then I run your background check. If you don't pass, you don't get a refund. If you pass, then I do the transfer.

If you'd rather, I can charge $25, none of which is refundable if you don't pass.
