I just renewed and I feel like it took just a few weeks.

Well, mailed it sometime last week (1/28 or 1/29) and they charged my card on the 31st. No waiting when it comes to taking the money!

Hopefully that means that I will get my new license pretty quickly (had one before - so not quite a renewal, but not completely unknown to them either).

Sooner would be better, as there are some firearms that want to come home with me soon!

I mailed my app and check 2/7/20. License approved and received first week of March. First time C&R. Any suggestions on first C&R purchase and where?

Classic Firearms
AIM Surplus
Brownells

Classic you can create an account and upload a copy of your C&R. AIM and Brownells you have to email them about getting it added to your account.

Brownells doesn’t have any C&R Guns but you do get a very nice discount on everything they sell. The discount is enough to justify the $30 C&R cost after a purchase or two.

How long is the wait to get the C&R license now?

Many people cut their teeth on a Mosin 91/30 like in the classifieds but a P1 on gunbroker is a good pistol
How much $ you got and what are your interests?

Tokarevs and P64 are cheap but not common ammo to easily find local, may have to mail order

Thanks for the tips. Good to know about Brownells. Wish I had investigated that sooner. I have a g19 slide and barrel on the way for a P80 build. Oh well, next time.

My initial interests are in pistols. I have some modern CZs so I’m looking at CZ-82 and 50. The VZ-52 rifle is interesting too. Need to research and gain some knowledge on all this. I prefer shooters to safe queens.

Ammo for C&R Tokarev and P64 is readily available in a variety of flavors on line. Not overly expensive, either.

The most fun I have with my Tok comes at the first shot, when everyone else turns around and says "What the Hell was THAT?". It uses a round developed for the Soviet submachine gun. Sounds like a cannon...

I'd go with a Romanian (or better yet, Polish) Tokarev TTC. Cheap, mags are plentiful and not expensive.
It's probably the best bang for the buck out there.

CZ-52 pistol is also a great choice but more expensive than the TTC; although not sure if the usual surplus places have any right now.
CZ-50 will be harder to find and original mags are even harder.

Walther P1/P38 is a good 9mm choice but you want one with the later and stronger "fat" slide and forged lock block.
The frame hex pin isn't a necessity unless you're planning to shoot 10000's of rounds.
Expect to spend $500-ish unless you're lucky and patient.
