    I decided to take the plunge. I figure I should wait to get cards printed untill I have the FFL hanging on the wall.

    Here's to the best of luck to you sir. I've heard mixed reports of FFL's becoming remarkably harder to obtain within the near future so good on you for getting it done now. I can only imagine the mare's nest of bs & paperwork required down the road.

    I am hoping and dreaming that by march (fingers crossed). I set up an LLC also got a tax ID number and all the other stuff it takes I did all that before I even filled out the app. I know someone who got theirs about 6 months ago. he say it "didn't take that long" I think I will call him today and find out what that means.

    FFL in the mail....

    I dropped my app off in the mail on Nov 12, on Nov 22 my check was cashed, received a call from my ATF inspector on December 14 that she would be out for my site inspection on the 15th. Took about 3.5 hours. I passed!!! Now the wait for the actual license, could be any day or sometime in Jan. I am waiting and watching for the post man every day like a little kid waiting for his secret decoder ring!!! :)

    the only thing that could pull me away from the soft glow of electric sex in the window is my mail man dropping off my FFL.
    can't you get your FFL at any 7-11 store in Texas?

    I too feel like I am waiting for my decoder ring! I got my website up up and running. we put some tee shirts on it WooHoo! blacklabelarms.com I would love to pay my SOT but I am afraid that if I do I won't make enough money to cover the 500 a year. I know a bunch of people that want to buy guns but none have enough money to drop 10k on machine gun.

    Congratulations! I was gonna wait til June to apply, because I'm gonna have to pay again in June. But after the friggin psycho decided to shoot up Tuscon, I went ahead and sent it in. No telling what all the libtards are gonna try and do to us bitter clingers!

    Full autos are cool and very expensive, yet I'm thinking more along the silencer line.

    Don't have the website yet, I do have a few urls reserved.

    Dang, you already have T shirts! I've got a friend working on my logo!

    I am gonna have to do a lot of transfers to get some more working capital. Got my eyes on some guns to buy and try to make some profit. Hey it keeps me out of trouble! It's fun!

    You are one brave soul...

    I have known my share of pawn shop owners that got tired of the batf
    "crawling up their backside" & quit handling firearms! Id love to open a
    business as a gunsmith...but, that is not going to happen in this political
    environment!:eek:
