I don't have a problem dealing with a home based FFL. Whatever business I have to do, I can do without walking into stocked store/business location.

From a different perspective, I read a thread on another forum on this subject in respect to the safety of having stangers into your home looking to buy guns. You don't know who they are or their real purpose of being there. Bought a pistol once from a woman dealer who worked out of her home. She required that face to face meetings be done by appointment only. When we got there, I realized why. A man answered the door & didn't take long to realize he was armed & there for her protection, just in case. Once they deemed we were legitimate customers he disappeared, but I'm sure he was still close at hand, in a back room. Just an added expense.

That can work two ways. The home based FFL has to protect themselves, but after the first meeting, the FFL knows who you are when you return for the next transaction.

I have taken precautions for the safety portion, just wanted to get opinions on the transaction side. Thanks for the response.

My clients are aware of my home based business.

I try to work with others who are not home based, and have even gotten some of their business (at their recommendation to their customers).

I don't have a problem with home based shops. I have bought ammo from them before, and I guess you could call the shop I do all my transfers through a home based. (his shop is actually inside his insurance company ).

Just try to make the place feel as friendly as possible. A lot of people feel uneasy about going into a stranger's house, so don't let it have that old creepy basement feel. Try to make it look professional.
