Recently bought a rifle back from someone I'd sold it to many years ago, but he had already taken it to a dealer to sell on consignment. That dealer charged $5 for the PICS check and filing out the forms.
Any gun shows coming to your area?
I have transfered handguns at shows - Just go through and ask a coulpe dealers if they can do a transfer for you and see what they charge. I think if you call or ask around you'll be able to find someone to do it for around the 25.00 mark
