Send that form In with your $500 check to the ATF and you are all set. If you choose not to fill it out right away, no worries, you can apply at any time. I waited a while as my FFL went live In September, and I didn't expect Class III stuff from
Day 1.

Another thing to remember is the SOT is valid July 1-June 30 regardless of your FFL expire date and you pay the FULL $500 per year, regardless of when you apply and it will still expire June 30th.

ATF mails out renewal letters in early May. After that time, all applications typically are considered for the following year. Most people I talk to say if you are applying for the first time, send your application in the second last week of May and you should have your SOT by mid June, effective July 1st.

Happy FFL'ing!

Well I checked my Credit Card account online that I used for my 07 application and it looks like the ATF made a charge to it for the fee. Is this a good sign, or do they do that for all the apps while they are in process?

Thanks!

Chris

Does anyone know how dificult it is to get an FFL for a home business? I work (in the military) and my wife is a stay at home mom so we were thinking of starting out by doing local FFL transfers then moving into actual selling.

you need a letter from your town stating you can run a firearms business from your premises.

the letter or business license you will most likely get from the town or city clerk.

One correction from my own experience:

I called my city's zoning department, and they said I do not need to get a letter from them. They said that for past FFL requests, the ATF called the city zoning department themselves, and confirmed for themselves that the city allows an FFL at the requested location. Be sure to call yours to confirm, though.

Thank you for this helpful guide!

That may be true and probably is but I always like to have stuff like that in writing. I wouldn't take the word of your zoning dept. I would go ahead and still get a letter. They just emailed me mine. Probably took them 4 minutes at the most.
