    Can you recommend an FFL near Vancouver who can do inexpensive transfers, and provide further discounts for transfers on the same 4473? If I already have a conceal carry license, is there another background check required?

    I see a couple listed elsewhere on this site that are charging $75, which is highway robbery and a clear indication that they don't want to have anything to do with this type of business.

    Thanks!

    311 tactical on 164th was pretty cheap. $15 + taxes or so IIRC.

    SCARed, thanks for that. 311 hadn't shown up on any of my searches.

    How about Fin and Feather in Ridgefield? They don't charge anything. They did a transfer for me between me and a WA resident when I sold one of my pistols.

    I wrote Ridgeway but meant Ridgefield. Don't know what was in my head at the time.

    Here is what I've found in evaluating transfer FFLs:

    Name || Fee || Location
    Fin & Feather || 20 flat rate, unlimited # on same form || 1832 N 9th Way Ridgefield WA
    311 Tactical || 17.50 + 5 for each subsequent || 212 NE 164th Ave #22 Vancouver WA
    Tropics Jewelry and Loan || 21+11 each subsequent || Orchards & Hazel Dell locations Vancouver
    SW Washington Surplus || $20 || Fourth Plain
    Vancouver Weapon Werx || 20 || Vancouver
    Lawrence Good Security & Defense Consulting, LLC || 20 || Vancouver
    Ken Starnes Gunmaker || 20 || Battleground
    Clark County Gunsmithing || 25, lowers are $15 each subsequent || Unknown
    coctailer (forum member) || $35 ||

    And it looks like the best FFL in Oregon for long guns is Tigard Pawn at $25.

    Hope this helps others.
