I am a lil confused about what a Class III FFL exactly is. What does having one allow me to do/own, compared to just being a basic Gun Owner. Do I need a Class III FFL to own a .50 cal Rifle, like the barret M99 ? So I was hoping someone can tell me what the benefits to having a Class III FFL is, and what it allows me to own, compared to not having one. And What I have to do, to go about getting one. I am 25yrs old by the way, so I am assuming that is old enough to get the Class III FFL. and i only have two things on my criminal record, none of which are assault, or violence related, and they are both just misdemeanors (possession of paraphernalia, got caught with a weed pipe back when i was 18, and then when i was 19 i got a 3rd degree theft for stealing some beer, so nothing bad, no felonies or anything), so from what I have been told, my charges will not affect owning a gun or anything.
