Default Question about gun sales in CA

I've been lurking on the WTS forum for a few firearms and I had a couple question about how the logistics of the sale work.

In an FTF or PPT sale, do the buyer and the seller both need to show up at the FFL twice, once to transfer and once to pick up the firearm from jail? What are the fees associated with such a transfer? DROS and whatever the FFL charges?

If a seller is shipping, how does that process work? Seller goes to the FFL, pays a transfer and shipping fee, and then the buyer would go to their local FFL (twice) and pay fees?

Thanks in advance.

You will need to go to the FFL twice (once to buy and once to pick up), but the seller only needs to go once unless you fail your Criminal Background Check.

The seller ships to your FFL and you go through the same process already mentioned. I always prefer FTF.

FTF: buyer & seller meet at ffl for gun inspection, payment to seller, and to do paperwork. Buyer pays for ppt ($25 for dros & $10 for ffl fees). Both go separate ways. After 10 days, you pick up purchase. PPT fees are legally supposed to be $35 flat. Anything more is not legal and you should report the ffl.

Shipping: you pay seller gun price and shipping fees. seller goes to their ffl to ship gun. Seller ffl and your ffl talk to ensure they have all correct info. Your ffl receives gun and you go to ffl to pay transfer fees and dros and wait 10 days. Come back in 10/11 days and pick up gun. This can get expensive due to shipping costs and dealer transfer fees. Most of the time, you are better off finding something local or drive for the right deal.
