    Hello,
    I don't know if this is the proper area to post, but. In the state of Florida, is it necessary for a FFL to only accept firearms from another FFL (out of state/ out of town)? Contacted local shop and owner won't accept a firearm otherwise. Thank for any information.

    A Florida FFL can receive a firearm directly from a non-licensee in any state. FFL to FFL transfer is not required by law. The store may have that as their policy though. Some FFLs refuse to deal with the lowly non-licensee, generally out of ignorance of federal gun laws.

    Great to get a response. Thank you for your time. I was thinking this might be the case. Now if I can talk one into it locally. Hate to spend the extra money if not necessary. Around South Florida it seems to be around $35 for the transfer and $5 for the background check. Don't know a dealer well enough for a discount.

    Where in South Florida are you? I found a place that will do it for $15 in Ft. Myers. In Naples I can't find anyone who will do it for a reasonable price, the closest place wants $50 :scrutiny:

    Thanks

    That was great, thanx Joab!! Found numerous listings in my area. Will have to call and get the details. For some reason I never noticed that feature on gunsamerica.
    Alex45ACP, I'm in Dade/Broward area. Have just been using the Yellow Pages. That search that Joab directed me to showed about 4 times the quantity of dealers willing to transfer. They must not advertise.
    Thanks Gentlemen! ! !
