    AS MANY AS YOU LIKE, MORE THAN 1 HANDGUN/WEEK HAS A CARD THAT GETS SENT IN BUT STILL ONLY ONE BACK GROUND CHECK (STATES MIGHT BE DIFFERENT).

    The 4473 has room for 5 guns, but instructions say that additional guns can be listed on an attached sheet. If it was me, I might charge some extra for a LOT of guns, but it is still one NCIS check. Look around to see who is available to do transfers. GunBroker has this very nice "Find a FFL" feature......

    If it's over 5 here in NY, the dealer needs to call a special number at the FBI. I don't know if that's State or Federal Law.

    Multiple handgun sales require another form to be sent to gestapo (batfe) headquarters and the local chief LEO. More hassle for the FFL dealer, and possible scrutiny from the gestapo.

    If I am selling the firearms then no problem with putting multiple guns on one 4473. Handguns here in WI require a separate state background check and a $10 fee.

    If I am just doing transfers for a customer then I charge for each firearm transferred.
