FFLs

Anyone got their license?

I'm thinking about getting mine. Was just wondering how the whole process went. How'd the interview go? Do I HAVE to be set-up as a business? How was your experience?

I have been skimming the ATF website, but you know they're gonna make it sound all easy.

Mine charges $5 per transfer. They do maybe 1 a day. Not the path to great wealth.

Not lookin to get rich as FFL. My day job is pretty dang good.

Just thought it would be a good way to get firearms at a steep discount for family and friends. Plus there's no waiting period.

There's one more and they charge zero. A way to get people to visit their pawn shop. Had to listen to the owner. He could talk all day. Eventually I preferred paying $5

Hey, Fred. Another option is a C&R license. There are a LOT of cool guns available on Gunbroker and the other sites. I'm shocked by the bargains to be had, and sometimes wonder why my local brick and mortar stores don't get in on C&R sales.

This. I've had my C&R FFL for years and it's the greatest thing. $30. You can get all kinds of cool guns delivered right to your door.

For C&R, don't the guns have to be over 50yrs old?

Yes, OR on the C&R list. I picked up some CZ82's from the early 90's because they are on the list.

Don't forget, guns over 50 years old can be from 1967!

I love it when the mailman brings a gun to my house.

Just because you have a ffl don't think you are going to get deals on guns. Distributors only give deals to large quantity dealers. You can buy WAY cheaper on Buds or Grabagun. Also you can not buy and sell your personal guns on the side. Anything you buy after you get a ffl goes through the business. Had one years ago and it was a hassle. I would just buy where you find the deals on line or through your lgs.

I did a little research a few years back because I had the same idea as you Fred and it doesn't seem to difficult. You can do it out of your home. We have a lot of independent dealers (FFL's)in the area and these guys aren't rocket scientists , I can't imagine you would have that hard of a time getting yours. I do know that keeping good records is very important.
