A big +1 for Dan. 8-)

He did a transfer for me on a handgun I bought via the Internet. $20.00 for the paperwork... and a nice guy to deal with! Highly recommended. :D

Thanks, that answers the question I was going to ask. I had seen this place listed on a FFL search of DE but I didn't know anyone who had been to him.

Was the internet purchase an auction or a surplus merchant like www.impactguns.com or www.jgsales.com ?

It was an auction. Dan charged $20 for the paperwork; I had already paid the seller via postal money order.

In the following quote from Delaware firearms laws, notice the part I highlighted in bold.

Quote:
904A. (b) As a condition of its license, any dealer
holding a license pursuant to this chapter shall
facilitate the transfer of a firearm, as that term is
defined in § 222 of Title 11, from any person
who is not so licensed, upon the request of said
unlicensed seller pursuant to the following procedure:
...
(4) Any dealer who is asked to facilitate the
transfer of a firearm pursuant to the terms of this
section, may charge a reasonable fee for said
service, said fee not to exceed $20 per criminal
history check performed pursuant to this procedure.

(5) Failure or refusal on the part of the dealer
to facilitate the transfer of a firearm pursuant to
the procedures set forth herein shall be adequate
cause to suspend the license of said dealer
for a period not to exceed 30 days per occurrence.
905. Penalties. Whoever violates this chapter
shall be fined not more than $250.

I had read that "$20" limit before....

So, is that a "hagling" point when they say $25 or $30 fee?

No hagling for me... I researched my options ahead of time and found Dan. He was straightforward and charged $20 for the transfer. I'll use Dan again should I need to do a transfer.

Well right, but I meant that if you go to use someone else, and they say it's a $25 or $30 fee, can you mention that the Code states $20, and demand they reduce their fee or go somewhere else? Do you think they'll change their fee then?

Although it does say "per criminal history check" so maybe they're counting the Delaware check as one and the Federal check as another? So in that case, they could charge up to $40??

:?

I think a criminal history check would include both DE and federal.

If you only did one of the two could you rightly say you did a criminal history check of the person?

---------------

FWIW, I think it's unethical for someone to add a profit margin charge to a gun they didn't sell. If you go to someone to only arrange a transfer, that's all you should pay for. Any payment toward the purchase of the gun is a completely separate matter between you and the seller.

I would have guessed that they would run the federal which one would think should include all 50 states like N.C.I.C. when they run your driver's license. But, what do I know? Just an assumption on my part and we know what that gets me..... :lol:

Yes, it should include them both to be an "official" (legal) criminal background check...

I was talking about an FFL reading "per criminal history check" and interpreting that to mean they could charge $20 for the Fed and then another $20 for the State checks ($20 PER).

I dunno. I'm just yapping....... ignore me.
