I don't fully understand the process of using an FFL to accept a firearm for you. Do I contact an FFL FIRST and tell them I'm interested in using Gun Broker & get pre-approved? Do I actually need to be pulling the trigger on a purchase BEFORE I contact an FFL?
Just wondering if its worth the hassle to buy off gun broker? Seems like shipping is expensive, I was quoted anywhere from $40-$85 to ship an AK to Alaska. One local shop told me they won't do the FFL transfer if its a firearm that they normally carry. They do list quite a few Anchorage area FFL's, but I haven't contacted any-kinda confused about the process.
