I hope that you are also a resident of Arkansas since if you are not, the transfer would not be legal.

There was no additional fees, in part, because the FFL sold you the firearm, but also because it sounds like they are using the NICS system, which is free.

The background checks really should be free, especially for a CA PPT. You have to love it that the FFL has to take a discounted fee, but CA gets their full amount, which exceeds the costs.
