FFL Question for y'all

1723 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  johnwill
Just a general question for y'all. Has it been your experience, in getting parts that require an FFL to ship or acquiring guns out of state that require an FFL to ship, that it is easier to obtain an FFL and handle it yourself rather than going through a dealer? It just seems that it might be easier to get an FFL and handle it yourself. Opinions? Are the requirements for an FFL hard to achieve?

Sorry for the ignorance but just thought I would start here and ask. Love the site...thanks

I have an FFL. First-you need a separate place of business(no homes allowed). Then get the package from BATF. Fill it out,get fingerprinted, pass background checks, send in 300 dollars for 3 year license. You have to be engaged in the business for profit. BATF will not give a license for the collector of modern guns.
PS- Don't buy from those ads for info. packets.They are free from BATF.
