This is my first post on this forum.
My name is Matt and I'm getting my FFL forms are waiting processing as we speak... type, and I have a question for the older folks who do the process on a regular basis.
I've my zoning all worked out and I'll be selling guns on a one by one, as ordered basis, from my home as well as doing some gunsmithing as the need comes by. I live in Texas, so there is no state registration to worry about, or at least none that I know of.
My question is, can anyone detail for me, and for potential future readers, the step by step process of ordering a firearm that a customer wants and selling the firearm to them, with all necessary forms mentioned?
So far my understanding of the process is this; Please correct me if I'm wrong.
- customer calls me and says he wants a rifle
- I check the distributors and find the lowest price.
- we agree on the price and he pays for the rifle
- I order it and we wait
- rifle comes in, he picks it up.
That is my understanding, but you'll notice the big glaring omission - NO PAPERWORK!
I don't know which forms to print and fill out, which to have him fill out, what the distributor wants, etc.!
Can anyone set me straight on the ordering and selling process?
Thank you so much.
