Wow, good timing on the thread. I just was opening up my forms to start to fill them out. Is the only thing required the two copies of the application (one to ATF and one to CLEO)? And, of course, the bound book, when I get the license.

Thanks for the link... pretty easy process. But I barely understand the why (remember, I'm lazy AND stupid).

Is it just that I need a C&R to buy from dealers, or do I need one to merely possess something on the BATF's list or something 50 years old? What about just buying a C&R weapon from a private party?

I think it's OK from a private party. But if you're buying from a website dealer you can get it shipped straight to you rather than having to do FFL transfer stuff. The C&R is for acquiring the firearm. Once in your possession, it's like another rifle in terms of legal possession. You do have to keep a bound book with all the information of your C&R weapons. You can't engage in regular business (seems loosely defined to me). :ianal: . I'm basically just summarizing what I've read on this site and others. Hope that helps.

I sent my paperwork to BATFE (along with my $30 check) and my CLEO on July 16. We'll see how long it takes. The check was cashed 3 days later so I know they got the paperwork.

I did think about the "come take my guns" theory for awhile, but I don't think that will happen. If it does, not ALL my guns will be purchased through a C&R anyway.

I want one because I'm getting more and more interested in old military guns. I can get them delivered right to my door, no FFL transfer fee's. I've also heard that some places give C&R holders a "dealer" discount even though it isn't a dealer license.

Yea, some places do give you discounts. Between the GFL and purchases made through FFL holders, your information is already out there. So I guess there's always that potential. Let's just hope it doesn't come to that.

I don't, but only because finances can't justify it yet. Give me 10 years.
From what I have read, it'll pay for itself within a few orders from Midway or Brownells.
I'm also interested in a Mosin and/or an SKS, maybe an old school handgun or two. By the time I get two of those transferred, it will have paid for itself.
I don't really care for registering things with the BATF, but I'm sure they've already got me in a file somewhere...

asbran, Have you figured out which musket was used in The Trooper? :D That would be a neat addition.

I don't think you understand. If I get it, I'll be buying more guns! Without it, I can "just wait until I get my C&R" :D
