    FFL in Metro Milwaukee for gun transfer.

    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?

    Because I live in Georgia and he lives in Wisconsin.

    I cannot legally ship it to him.

    That link is VERY helpful thanks! Found one I can call that does it for $33 INCLUDING the BG check!

    I found Kevin through gunbroker.com & have transferred :cough: a few :cough: firearms through him.

    Kevin
    K Wadhams Inc
    6204 W North Ave.
    Wauwatosa, WI 53213
    Phone: 414-651-4570
    Other Fee: $20.00 long guns, $28.00 pistols

    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.

    Awesome folks. Thanks!

    I almost CHOKED when they told me $75 PLUS $20 for the BC.

    I guess I'm spoiled down here....

    I didn't realize how much SS charged until I was looking at Gunbroker for someone with a FFL to do the transfer on my AR.
