A chunk of it is turned over to DOJ as the DROS fee. Think it's $25 or so and the FFLs are limited to charging $35 so they make $10 on the DROS plus their transfer fee.
This.$35 is for PPT's and is just $25 DROS + $10 profit
the $100 transfer is usually ON TOP of DROS fees for internet purchases.
Also, the only 9mm RIA that you can have in CA is the AP9 or the MAPP1. If you want a 9mm 1911 from Rock island your only bet is to get a .38 super 1911 (which, ahem, we just so happen to have in stock) and then get a barrel from RIA in 9mm.
You know how I know your a Kimber fanboi?
By "roster", he means the roster of handguns that CA-DOJ permits to be brought into the state. If it's not on their by name, it's out. Even dumb shit like blued vs. stainless will disallow a pistol. The blued model may be on there but the stainless isn't so even though they're the SAME pistol with that cosmetic difference, one is okay and other is evil.
I am painfully familiar with the handgun roster.
And it's not about what can be brought into the state, it's about what can be sold new at a dealer.
I could move home to laguna beach next week and bring 2 of everything off the roster and sell them to people in ca legally.
I got a like new glock 19 with 4-10 round magazines. It looks and shoots like its brand new. Its also very accurate and super reliable. This comes with everything a new glock does and more. I'll even throw in 100 rounds of winchester 9mm + 30 rounds of hollow points.
$35 bucks for the PPT, it's illegal to charge more for it. Decent price if it's LNIB.
