Default Buying from FFL dealer

Hi Guys,

Soon I am going to go pick up my new rifle from my dealer but I have a few questions. I know that as soon as you take the firearm into possession, it it considered a used weapon. So how do I check the rifle to make sure it is completely fine? Am I allowed to take it out and physically check it myself or do I have to ask them to do it?

Did you purchase it from them or a third party? If you purchased it from them and they got it from the factory, you can just ask them to go over the weapon with you so that you feel comfortable that everything is in order. If you bought it from a third party, ask them to go over it so you can be sure of getting what was advertised. In any case, they should be willing to help you sort out your fears of taking receipt of a used weapon.
"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

Ask them, not us.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
