    DO i personally need one to purchase a rifle online, or do i need an FFL holder to ship it to? Not buying soon just curious about the process.

    ^^^Yup, somebody to receive, record, and transfer the firearm to you. Gunbroker has an FFL finder at the bottom of that page to locate some in your area. FYI, in my area the larger places like Gander Mountain and such don't seem as interested in transfers, but my favorite "gun & pawn" place will do it for $20 and be a nice guy about it rather than acting like he just lost a sale on something he probably never would have had in stock anyway.

    Yeah shop around, even some of the brick and mortar guys will charge higher fees for firearms from buds etc. A home based guy usually has pretty good rated because overhead is low and pawn shops have been reasonable in my experience and that's what I used before I got my license.

    Lots and crazy, from what i have heard; additionally, you have to go into business as a gun transfer guy or a gun repair guy or something along those lines. You don't need it.

    Quick and dirty- there are about 14 different flavors of FFL. Three apply to the discussion. 01 is a Dealer, 02 is a pawnshop, 03 is a collector of Curio & relic firearms.

    For modern guns, you need the services of an 01 or 02. To GET that license you must "intend to engage in the business" of buying, selling, repairing or pawning guns. You will NOT be issued one for personal use.

    Both Gunbroker and Auction Arms have a "find a ffl" function on their home page. Put in your zip code, it will find 01's and 02's that have registered with the sites as being willing to receive a firearm for transfer to you.

    03 FFL covers guns 50 yrs old or older, or a few that are newer, listed by name on ATF list (all Colt Woodsman pistols, etc) That is for a hobbyist, $30 for 3 yrs, allows me to buy and have shipped directly to me. Does nothing for new guns.
