Default Need advise please

Hi, I'm interested in getting my FTL, I would like to know if someone could give me some advise on how to be prepared for FFL interview and what I need to do before hand, to make sure I will be ready for that interview. Thank you for reading. P.S I will run these sales out of my house and from mag sales

If you read through, you can see where other folks have been through this process- look over in the FFL topic.

In order to obtain a DEALER'S 01 Federal Firearms License, first you must intend to "engage in the business" of buying and selling (or repairing) guns for a livelihood.

You must also be in compliance with state and local laws that regulate that. One of the BIG hurdles for a home based FFL may be zoning. If your zoning does not permit a business to be run out of your house, you can stop right there. You will also need business license, etc.

You will also need to designate a physical premises, and designate hours of operation. By appointment only will generally not be acceptable. You will need secure storage for firearms (can be a door with a lock, and lockable cabinet, etc)

Read through the posting from folks that have already done this, and get back to us with any question.

And I am assuming you mean a dealer's license. If you mean a Collector's FFL, or something else, let us know that too.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

I have submitted a couple threads on the issue, take a look here:
