I did a private sale transfer at Gander yesterday and since I was a Good Sam member it was free.
I had done transfers there both for free and for $17 fees by the same people. The kast two from several months ago they insisted it is $17 for Good Sam members and $32 for non-members. Maybe they donít like Catholic owning guns because I showed them past receipts but they insisted it is free only if item came from FFL and not private sale. This is their shoot from the hip business practice that had the old gander closed, screwing over investors, previous employees, and many customers who bought their service contracts and extended warranties.
If there is a way to get their exact policy or proof they ahould only charge $2 poll tax for transfer for Good Sam members, that would be great but they cost me money the ladt two transactions. The last one I ended up selling my brand new Shield 9mm for $333 because I gave a marine a $25 discount once I found out he was a marine and offered to cover the fee because he is a young guy. That ended up costing me $17 instead of $2 and I ended up selling a brand new Shield for $333 when they were foing for $400 at Cabelas and GT before taxes.
I had to drive 5X the distance this past Saturday to GFR to do transfer because GFRís $10 price includes the $2 poll tax and they donít do bait and switch once youíre inside. I also got several mags at GFR while at it since their prices on certain mags are cheaper than gungunwarehouse and I donít have to worry about shipping cost or lost since there are way too many solicitors knocking on doors and any of them can feel entitled to packages left out. Or delivery folks putting in wrong boxes as I had received things meant for other people and had to walk down there to give to rightly owners. And it feels good helping lgs and walk out with items.
gander is shady. Theyíll go under again once the craze is over. They canít afford tonpay all those employees and rent when they barely sale anything beside guns and ammo, which they donít have much off nowadays.
