Looking for FFL in Dallas zip 75240 or 75238

Looking for low cost FFL. I need a transfer. Prefer area around zip 75240 but would consider area around zip 75238.
75238 is near White Rock Lake and 75240 is near LBJ and the Tollway.
Let me know if you are or know of an FFL in either area and what your transfer fee is.
Thanks

I know an FFL in Richardson who does transfers for $10. He's done three for me in the last few months and they have all run very smoothly.

PM me if ya want his contact info.

Here is a very good resource. You just type in your zip code, and it brings up all FFL's in that zip code:

Have fun deciding on one. :smash:

This is a great link but it gives no mention to what the FFL charges for a transfer. That's why I was looking for recommendations since folks who knew could tell me.
I used a similar tool I found as a link on gunbroker.com ( I think) and I called probably 6 or 8 different FFL's.
At least two never answered or responded to my voice mails and ALL the rest of them ranged from overpriced to outright rediculous. Some even had crazy 'stipulations' and tack on fees.
One guy even said he'd charge me 10% of the sale price I was getting as well as the Texas sales tax since I didn't buy the gun from him. It was his way of teaching me a lesson for buying online. I ended up using a guy in Richardson who's FFL expired yesterday and he hasn't received his new one yet. The seller of the gun won't ship unless he gets a copy of a current FFL so I'm looking for another FFL to do the transfer.
I really don't feel much like going through the process of calling 6 or 8 FFL's again just to find one that is reasonable.
Thanks for the link though.

Anyone else with recommendations?

Hmmm.....sorry that didn't work out. But here's another:

I don't know anything about this one. But I know what you mean about outrageous prices! I was poking around some websites last week and saw a dandy and I thought I saved it....but I didn't. If I can find it, I'll post it.

I used a guy off of I-20 and Great Southwest Parkway in Grand Prairie. I know it's isn't in the area you are talking about, but he charges $15 for CHL holder and $20 for non CHL and good to deal with. I found him on http://www.AuctionArms.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. Let me know and I'll get his contact info to you.

I vote for mymojo's one. $10 for a transfer just can't be beat.

I agree. I contacted this guy by email tonight and within an hour he'd contacted me with all his specifics.
He seems like a very responsive and acommodating FFL holder. Said he was available from 5:30- 10pm Mon-Fri and on weekends by appointment.
The only downside is he's a bit north of where I was wanting but hey... no big deal.
Thanks for everyones help. If something happens and this guy doesn't work out, I'll post again.
