Are they notified that there is a $25.00 incomplete transaction fee before they buy the gun?
At our stores, if the denied customer wins the appeal the transaction proceeds as normal with no penalties to the customer. The customer simply pays the amount refunded.

We have a sign posted, but we don't chime in and tell the customer this because it offends them.
They'll many times view this verbal disclosure as us suspecting them of being a prohibited person.
We've learned this lesson the hard way.

All three of my favorite lgs will do a background check BEFORE taking money for the firearm in question. They DO take the fee for the background check but that's it... well at least that is what they do for me and I don't exactly count as a "regular" customer in all of them.

One of the lgs owners and I are on first name basis both in and out of the store. He will do the background check for me without taking money for the fee up front but I will still end up having to pay him for it later anyway.

For an FFL to not refund the money for the purchase of the gun is just wrong.
This is who we are, what we do.

I have never had to pay anything up front. I have bought from 6 different gun shops and always paid just before walking out the door.
