BATF went through a period where, the poster was correct, no home FFLs issued. I remember that. It was around the Brady Bill flap as I recall.

It was in the early 2000 when my FFl expired.i was wanting to reapply for it and the ATF told me no more home ffls . They told me I had to have an actual store front. And a safe to store my guns in at night. A local gun shop bought a pre built shed and put it along side his drive way . He quit selling out of his house and is still selling out of his pre built shed.. I guess the rules have changed

A strong second on that one. Be prepared for a complicated hobby (which is allowed so long as you do business) if you don't have the capital to back up the inventory it takes to compete.

I've had my home based since 2007. No issues with the BATFE. They care more about compliance with local state and city ordinance than pretty much anything else besides record keeping.
