FFL Question for y'all

1720 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 think you're a bit "over the top" when it comes to the C&R. The regulations are very easy to comprehend, and the BATF has better things to do than follow us collectors around.


"First-you need a separate place of business(no homes allowed)."

Well, while they discourage the practice, I know three class 01 FFL's within a 1/2 hour drive from my house that run their business exclusively from their house. You just have to have regular hours...
