    Applied for my FFL and NY state gun dealers license Jan 12th

    In New York you need a state dealers license to sell handguns.

    ATF took the money from my account on Jan 17th

    My town has no zoning or business license required, i have a official letter from them stating that for my IOI. (Industry Operation Investigator)

    I have received my NYS sales tax number.

    I have been working on my store while waiting for my ATF meeting.

    Also studying ATF publication 5300.4 in preparation for that meeting.

    I have a list of the areas from 5300.4 the IOI will go over, if anyone would like i will share it.

    So here i am patiently waiting to hear from the IOI any day now :D

    congrats! I mailed mine in the week before Christmas and had my FFL before the end of January. The ATF meeting was easy ask questions and don't over complicate it.

    Here is a picture of my store, it was a gun shop in the mid 80s, that was the garage door where i framed in.

    When it warms up and the snow goes, i have more plywood to finish covering the end and will prime it white. Not sure on final color.

    Congrats Kieth, looks like a good start you've got there.

    All of the meetings and inspections I've had with the ATF folks have gone real well. They are very courteous and professional, and not nearly as scary as most people would have you believe.

    Re: paint options

    With all that snow you should consider flourescent orange or safety yellow,
    so you and your many customers can find the front door:D

    Congrats and all the best. I started to get mine while I was still working but
    wife said to wait till I retired so I did now she says we don't have the $ to do it. The county where I live says I have to pony up $2500 for a zoning hearing and no garantee that I'll get approval! I guess the deer and squirrels will object, I own 22 acres and my closest neighbor is 1000 yards away.

    I've thought about applying for an FFL but I'm not sure NC allows home based dealers.
