    I think Hot guns needs to lay off the coffee, but anywas I'm not asking nor wishing the federal gov to be in my stuff anymroe than anyone else and simply was popping a question out there to maybe get some other than interesting results like a true concensious of ONE(1) simple way of doing busness for the honest true hard working man/woman and not really getting a rash of crap from those that think price gouging is the way to go about things. Anyways, as I said I was mearly thinking outside the box on a simple single minded idea is all. Thanks everyone for all the good feed back.

    If an FFL is required for all transactions I'll bet that there'll be a WalMart within 20 miles of where Packing lives that will offer the service for $7.95.

    Walmart wont do a transfer now. What makes you think they'll do it then?

    The point is...if an FFL is required for a private transaction, it will cost you more to buy a gun. The gun grabbers dont care, if it were up to them,they would make the price of doing buisness so high that no one could afford it.

    In 2007 My wife and I were injured in a head on collision with a drunk driver. I didn't work for a year and for a while it looked like I was never going back. Until the insurance company's started paying we were living on what we could sell. I sold 167 guns from my collection. Mostly long guns, mostly Mill-Surp, and mostly C&R. I could have sold these on the internet, but that would have consumed most of my time. Instead I found a local dealer who sold both from his store and on the net. He started at a 10% fee but quit charging me anything after about 6 weeks. Id drop off 5 new ones each week and the new stock was bring in so many customers he said the fee wasn't necessary.

    If I had to ever do it again Id do the same. No shipping, No packing, No worries. Hopefully if I have to do it again it will be the grand kids dropping them at the LGS and picking up the checks! DR

    BTW, any FFL out there will do the paperwork, make the call, and take your $25-$50 off your hands. I know my LGS will gladly do it. If it makes you feel better, find a LGS to do it. But for the most part, we have that covered here in NC because a CCP or PPP requires a background check. We could discuss the validity and necessity of either of those, but that's probably another thread.

Why are all the military style guns so popular? If any gun owner thinks he can go up against the US military, then he really shouldn't have a gun.
    Germany .... Hitler , was initially "elected" .... twice.

    Chavez..... the country 'was' a democracy, and he was elected. Then he just threw out the constitution .... and declared himself leader, that is before doing mass confiscations of the gun of any opponenets. Much like Hitler did, but he also killed off a lot of his opponents rather quickly.... with the excuse they were committing treason with a plan to take over the Govt. But it wasn't them that were planning to take over the Govt.

Many police departments no longer offer this as some considered it releasing sensitive information.
    Not around here, the local PD has always done it. Others around the state who I know, and who've we've discussed this, all say their's do as well. Can only tell you that they do it here with no problem.

    Profits. After ruining the business for local small-operation grocery stores, hardware and paint stores, opticians, clothing and shoe stores, etc., what makes you think they won't see a new profit center opportunity because of an enlarged pool of potential new customers streaming in for low cost transfers.

    And if things get too busy at the gun counter for one or two clerks all they have to do is hire another part-time, minimum wage person, spend half a day training him/her and rake in more profits when the new customers browse the gun and ammo displays while waiting for the background checks and paperwork to be completed.

    Some individuals will only sell to other CHL holders, that would be the equivalent of working thru an FFL without any expense, paperwork or hassle.
