    Looks like my $15 FFL tranfer guy is unavailable. I need another FFL that does tranfers without breaking the bank. Also, need a copy ASAP of the license.

    I see a few on gunbroker but have never used them.

    Suggestions?

    I seen them and made a few calls. I think I'm just gonna buy local.

    Here's the scenario. I found a G20 (shot 15 times) with night sights and 8 each 15 round mags for $550 shipped. Add $25 for transfer fees ($15 if I can get ahold of my regular guy). Problem is, the seller is moving in a week to a different state and wants me to get everything to him before weeks end. I'm kind of uneasy about the whole deal cause of him moving. He has good feedback from Gunbroker so at least he has some history.

    I called a local gunshop (Diamondback Police supply) and can get a new G20 for $475 + $38 tax and it comes with 2 factory high cap mags. Can have the gun by Wed. No night sights though. Reason I get is at that price is the discount they give LE/military. I think I'm gonna stick with the local sale for piece of mind and less hassle. I'll take the extra $60 and buy some extra mags or night sights for it.

    What say you?

    If it were me, I'd go local, too. Diamondback has a good reputation and the Glock prices are about the best in town. Mags are easy to get and fairly cheap, too.

    Check with Slash K for night sights. They used to install them free if you bought from them. The problem with Slash K is the store hours.

    Slash K?

    I just got back from dropping the funds locally. Cost was $511 out the door for a new G20, standard sights and 3 high cap mags. Will have it tomorrow. :D

    Lennyjoe,

    Sounds like a reasonable price.

    It's on the south side of Ajo, between Country Club & Palo Verde:

    Slash K Guns
    3156 E Ajo Wy
    Tucson, AZ 85713 - 5224
    (520) 747-1521

    Now, get back to D-M and get to work.

    I got ahold of my FFL. He was on vacation and emailed me yesterday.

    Cidirkona. if you need his email address then let me know. AJC Sporting goods. Andy Cenofanti is his name. Great guy. $15 transfers but he lives near the foothills.
