VA. without too much effort. It's been a while and I hope things didn't change down there.
Yes, you can take your FFL anywhere in the country and do a face to face transaction. That is one big perk of having the license. You are allowed to conduct business in person pretty much anywhere, regardless if it's for you or customers.
One of my favorite states, Delaware is. Used to spend a lot of time there. Hope to again.
Thanks for the reply. I wanted to set up shop at a lot that was for rent in the area. Nope, the other stores didn't want a gun shop there. My only other possibility was to have the house we are renting be my biz for a while until I can find a vacant building. My wife wanted to rent a house in a housing community. A lot more upscale than I am used to. So I dreaded asking a "landlord" if he minded my FFL on residence. I assured him that I would only do internet (gunbroker, etc.) sales and no storefront. He gave me permission and said "no problem."
Well, you can probably guess where this is going. After filing my application with the BATF, I had the visit by the investigator of the premises. All was well, until I asked the landlord for his permission in writing. He now denied me the business, and I lost the license. So, I am trying to find a place for business. But this area is saturated with 3 stores, and 2 residence FFL's. Oh well, we'll see. Thanks for the support though! Mucho appreciado!
