C&R FFL license...

I'm sure several of you have gotten this license to help you with your own collections. It looks like a very simple process...a one page form and $30? Is that about it?

But then it says that it is 30-60 days to get it processed. Is there any way to speed up that part of the process?

And it keeps saying that you cannot use that license for doing business. Can anyone clarify what that means. They talk about buying for your own collection but does that mean that you can't sell and ship using your own FFL?

- simple, one form + $30 - yup
- speed up the process - nope
- "not for business" just means you can't be buying and flipping for profit.
You can sell off stuff to upgrade your collection, if you change focus, etc.

You do need to maintain a "bound book" of all your C&R acquisitions and dispositions while the FFL-03 is active.
It's not hard, you just have to be diligent.

How much will it REALLY cost? I’m not sure I can afford to have one.

Get a FFL C&R 03 Lic is easy completed forms and send $30 then hurry up and wait 6-10 weeks give or take a few. When you get the License make a bunch of unsigned copies, keep the Original unsigned, if retired military get copies of your ID as will as your Drivers lic. many non C&R vendors give discounts to C&R/ 03 Lic holders and retired Mil. Many require Drivers lic to Internet/mail order ammo, C&R vendors require signed copy of your C&R Lic to ship to you, some will not honor it or ship to Maryland address. Read the stickys in the C & R Forum.
NOTE : The FFL C&R/O3 is only good/used outside the state in which you live/address on the form, if you move you have to update the form to your new address.


Here a few that are still open and get stock to sale

www.aimsurplus.com
www.centuryarms.com
www.jgsales.com
www.classicfirearms.com


If you're at a gun show in another state the vendor may or may not honor your C&R but I always carried a few copies with me.

cheap surplus is mostly gone so its probably easier to keep in control than it used to be.

Because of the 50 year rule, every year more stuff becomes C&R automatically. Anything made 1970 or before is now C&R... including NFA items.

I believe that any eligible C$R firearm, regardless of how obtained (license used or not), must go in the bound book. No big deal, just record keeping.

Getting out of state pistols delivered to your door with no other Maryland paperwork? H*ll yea. Any picking up some vintage firearms, h*ll yea.

Suggest you start at page 1 and read. That and go to the ATF site to read more. You will be regulated and governed by them with respect to a license, not by what anyone on MDS tells you.

The license only costs $30 but you will spend another $1000 the first month or 2 you have it! Ask me how I know,

The problem with that C&R sticky is there is some bad/misleading info mixed in... I think most of it is addressed accordingly but...
