The second issue is probably more problematic than the first

Easy solution - donít do business with people who donít want to do business with you.

Yeah it got me in trouble. In 6 months I picked up an M57, G1898, Cz82, SKS, Colt OP, a couple of P64s through my C&R. Not including a couple of other C&R pieces that werenít with my license.

Then my wife found out I hadnít bought 2 or 3 guns last year like she had been thinking I had (I hadnít really lied. I just didnít mention the purchases and she hadnít asked).

Needless to say several of those have since been sold to keep the marital peace.

If - and thatís a big if - I were to happen across one of my holy grails and it was being sold by a clown who refused to honor my 03, I might - I would probably - pull the trigger, but otherwise everything is out there from normal people if you are patient, and I just refuse to give my business to some hayseed who thinks his FFL is more legitimate than mine.

A couple I had no regrets of having bought went out the door also, but I kept everything I cared about (sold 4 total, which barely made a dent).

Moving soon, so I absolutely can't sneak anything in now. She should know about (almost) everything I own right now (all the handguns are getting slipped in to ammo boxes as she may not know about all of them) and I doubt she will be counting, but it gives her heart palpitations the couple of times she's seen the safe open. The possibility of being around the stack of guns (even if most are in gun cases) while moving the safe probably isn't going to make her any happier.

Well, and buying a new house is going to make money really short for a few months. So I cannot afford to buy any more guns till probably fall.

Makes me doubly glad that UBC crap didn't pass.

I let my FFL-03 expire. I'm not sure whether or not to reapply. My last purchase was an M1 Garand from the CMP. You don't need a C&R license to buy rifles from them and they don't respect it on pistol sales.

The easy peasy surplus market is gone. There will always be occasional great buys for folks willing to put the effort in, but I just don't seem to have the time for that.

I'll probably reapply this summer though. $30 is just too cheap to give up the right to buy a gun and have it delivered to my doorstep.
