I would make the drive down to Gunfighter Tactical (across the street from MCAS Miramar). The time you save with their process will make up for the drive time.

Outside of that I can't make a recommendation for North County. People on here will flame me for this but I have done two flawless PPTs at Turner's San Marcos. I guess it depends on who is behind the counter that day.

Duncan's is legit, but I give all my business to Gunfighter Tactical. They really go out of their way to support the 2A, especially during freedom week

Yep, Gunfighter Tactical. They are working hard to earn and retain business. They are super easy to work with and they don't play favorites, meaning, no one is exempt in their store.

Iron Sights is not PPT friendly. Gunthers is.

That being said, my last one was at Gunfighter Tactical.

Be aware that Gunther has a long wait on weekends, as stated on their website: http://www.guntherguns.com/category-s/1554.htm

Thanks for all the info,men. Hopefully can do this during the week,avoiding
weekends. I’ve been chasing this pistol for over a year and finally found a
good one ——someone was willing to sell.

Gunther's was a very nice shop to work with when I did a PPT a while back. I've had a lot of meh experiences with Duncan's over the years, but I concede I was going there in my late teens and early 20s and I probably wouldn't want to deal with then-me either.

Another recommendation for Gunthers. Did business with them before and they were very accommodating.

Gunfighter Tactical is my recommendation.

Another option: Beebe Family Arms, Fallbrook. Very pleasant to work with.

I've done two PPTs there and have been happy. Only thing is even though my CCW exempts me from the safe handling demonstration, I still had to do it. Not a big deal, but be prepared.
