You will need to maintain a "bound volume" of firearms you acquire and dispose of. Guns in, guns out. Pretty simple really.

Yes, you are subject to inspection by the ATF. Once a year. Most of us have never been inspected, and if you are not selling a bunch of guns, not likely that you will be. An 03 has the option of having the inspection done at an office designated by the ATF- you can take your guns and bound volume to them.

Go to the ATF website and do some reading.

A few states (CA, NY, NJ) will treat C&R handguns differently. You will also find that there are a number of wholesalers you can buy from, places like Numrich and Brownell's will give you a discount on their stuff, and you will encounter 01 Dealers that do not know what an 03 is.

PS- You still cannot MAIL a handgun by US Mail. Limited to Dealers and Manufacturers.
Yeah I meant like UPS and Fedex.

Assuming the weapon is legal in your state, you can receive any C&R weapon as an 03 FFL.

Keep in mind there may be other requirements. For example, just because a machine gun is C&R eligible and your state allows you to purchase and posses a machine gun, you still need additional licensing from the feds.

C&R record keeping is very simple. In and out. That's it.
