I would have totally bought it from them if they had price-matched what I was getting online, which amounted to less than 10% off, and I would have still ended up paying more due to state taxes but might have been worth the 4-6 weeks saved on the Form 3.
Who knows, maybe they thought I was some dupe that was just trying to get a good price and they didn't know that I spend thousands per year in firearms junk and would have been a good customer to add. Maybe I just called at the wrong time? I know the lady I was speaking to was consulting with someone else that was handling the new shipment of TBAC goodies that knew their stuff on NFA transfers and maybe didn't have the authority to price match.
We give 10% off if you pay upfront for your class 3 item next time talk to Jeff. Prices at the shows are usually a little cheaper also , keep in mind most places that take your money don't even stock the the suppressor and order it only after the paperwork clears ,
About the transfer you will find allot of places do that , And ones that do charge out the ... I tried to do a standard transfer at a well known local shop and they wanted $90 I couldn't believe it that's more than we make on most firearms .
Sorry if you had a bad experience Rally .
