    I'm a little surprised by the transfer fees I've seen around here. $45 and up? No thanks.
    Does anyone know of any places that do it for $free-$15? Last time I paid for a transfer, it was $5...

    Thanks!

    Check with DOA here on the forums. He is cheaper than anyone I know of. He owns okiiguns dot com. He is a supporting vendor here, and a great guy.

    Sweet deal. Does the background fee still apply if you're a CHL holder?

    It always applies know matter what. I have been in Kieths twice when police officers were told they still have to pay it

    Here in Vancouver it seems to be $25 PLUS the sales/use tax if not already paid.

    Does anyone know of a FFL in Vancouver that doesn't collect sales tax? I used a local gentleman for many purchases over the last 5 years, never collected a nickle in sales tax. Unfortunately, he passed away this last year.

    Probably not going to get someone to give up the name of someone breaking the LAW on a public forum. Last time I checked it was the law to charge sales tax in WA?:thumbup:

    If it's a long gun, just do the transfer in OR.

    A Cut Above Pawn in Hillsboro does FFL transfers for $10 plusthe $10 BGC. Although they are raising the FFL fee to $15 very soon if they haven't already.

    Mike, at Brightwater, used to not collect the tax also, till the Dept. of Revenue audited his books and made him pay the tax out of his pocket. Some of us did pay him back when we found out.

    What are we talking a couple bucks??? Pony up the sales tax! It's not like you're not buying everything else tax free in Oregon!

    8.4% on a $1,000 sale is $84.00 so it's not "a couple bucks". Buy a car or move here and the tax is almost 10%.

    Not really. If you are a WA resident and work in OR we get to pay the full OR income tax and still have to pay sales/use tax and no representation in OR either. Plus we don't get the same deductions.
    Then we've got the ex OR residents who keep their drivers licenses and car licenses and cheat the system. The need to close that loophole too.

    Off topic: Woooh there cowboy. Don't be so quick to judge. There are those of us who live in Washington and work in Oregon. I have to pay by the exact same Oregon Income tax brackets that you do. There is no "discount" for being a Washington resident working in Oregon like some might think.

    On topic: I've used Ortwein International (Vancouver / Hazel Dell), I think it was $25 + $10 for background check, but I don't remember exactly. For a long gun transfer I did in Portland, I used Fort Moe (Scott) $20 + 10 for background check. Both great guys!
