    Check centerfiresystems, Southern Ohio Guns, Ron Shirk, CDNN, Century Arms.
    As you hold your FFL, others will come flying in.

    You will also want to look into a business license for tax exemption on purchases, do you have an actual store front or will you be opperating out of your house? i have ran into a few distributors who will only deal with those that have a physical store front

    If you need, you can download (in *.pdf format) froms from the BATF site. It will not allow you to save changes, but you can print out the forms as needed.

    Blazer... Did you say that you ARE an FFL dealer? You already have your 01 License? If so, you should already know about the 4473's and your bound book.. Also, if you are indeed an 01 license holder, you already have a business license (state tax ID number normal busness hours established and the address of where you'll be running your business) All of these things are required by the BATF before the license can be granted.

    I posses the C&R license (normally called an 03 C&R) but want to get my dealers license set up before I retire. Running from my home (seperate building on my property) and I have to maintain the bound book and keep 4473's on all my transactions between other dealers/collectors.

    You need to be up to speed on all of this before selling your first firearm...

    Just friendly advice.

    The BATF also has a free CD-ROM that has a program for the forms.

    Sorry but it seems odd to me that you've went through the process of obtaining an FFL but really don't seem to understand the details of the firearms business. There is no faster way to get federal "help" than to screw up even a single detail involving a firearms transaction. Maybe I'm being critical, but the above quote (in fact this whole thread) just doesn't seem representative of any FFL dealer I've ever known. If you truly are an FFL holder - learn fast or you're in for serious difficulties...

    OldMan, I'm about to start the application process myself and I've been advised to get the 07 license because it is the same process and allows manufacturing, which is required to assemble AR-15's, etc. If you decide to upgrade later it is a big hassle that you can avoid by doing it now.

    I've been a licensed collector for ten years now. Looking to upgrade when this latest renewal comes due (two more years). working on getting the shop together so I'll meet the requirements for the business/store front.
