Or at any gun action sight ....
I have a gun I want to transfer to my father-in-law who lives in metro-Milwaukee.
I called The Shooter's Shop and found out they charge SEVENTY-FIVE DOLLARS for a gun transfer PLUS $20 for the background check!!!! :shock:
Have I just been out of Wisconsin for too long or is this as nuts as I took it?
The shop I work for in Georgia charges $35 for a transfer and $10 for a background check (unless you have a carry permit, then you pay nothing).
Is there an FFL in metro-Milwaukee who charges a more.... REASONABLE fee for a transfer?
Maybe a private FFL?

Try this to locate a FFL holder:
If it's a private transfer why do you need a FFL holder?

IIRC, he's charging slightly more than that, hasn't updated his prices, but they're not bad.
And he only passes on the $13 state BG check fee, doesn't add to it.
Plus, you can have a meal or a shake while you fill out the paperwork, since he operates out of his other business which is a fun little diner.
If you put 53005 into the gunbroker search, there's a co. that says they charge $35 for pistols, inclusive. They're in Brookfield.
