I would think the fingerprint situation has improved by now since silencer shops are popping up with FBI approved fingerprint kiosks.  ATF is obviously accepting those.  I would also add that it's too bad they don't offer some sort of license for those of us that do buy frequently.  The constant 4473's and NICS checks are annoying.  Considering the ATF gives you 3 years of FFL authority with no checks on your purchases or transfers, why not some kind of federal license for frequent buyers?

Great video, my question, is it worth getting? Im a disabled vet and Id like to sell guns out of my shop. Is getting my FFL and opening a small store worth the trouble? Ive been told a lot of negative things.

Hey ya dick, jk. Seriously I watched your video and I think you saved me alot of trouble and money. I'm looking to get my ffl to do online purchase transfers at first until I can build something up. Not looking to get rich but maybe make a little money in an area that I have alot of interest, firearms... Thanks for the info I'm going to make the call tomorrow. I have been wondering where to start and was going to pay one of those online companies but thanks to you I have a starting point. Now go play Battlefield 3.

Why do you say 2 fingerprint cards? The application says nothing about 2 cards. On the application it states "A properly prepared fingerprint card (form FD-258) must be submitted for ALL responsible persons, unless they have peviously submitted one as an RP for another FFL."
Angel Perez (7 months ago)
Is true that they ask you for proof of business? something like tax or something showing that you have a business. I was very interested until got informed that have an FFL is the free ticket for them to make a popup inspection where you have to open your doors to them, and for a business in a local store thats ok but for a house mehhh.
Red Trek (6 months ago)
Yeah they recently changed policies quite a bit afaik. Now they basically need you to have a real business (store front) first, FFL second.

You said you need a set in stone address for the FFL but if you have a store/business and say you want to branch off to either separate county’s within the state or if you wanted to have a string of businesses across the country do you need to let the ATF know about every single location and if so does it cost more money to do so @GunTortureTests

First off, thank you for a very informative video. Next, I understand that an FFL is needed to sell sporting arms. If I want to build for myself a fully automatic AR15, what license(s) will I need? And is this feasible for an average gun nut like me? Thx again

Thank you for the great information this is an awesome video really help me out a lot the only question I have is that I am setting up a home-based FFL for Gunsmithing/saleing but would like to go to a couple gun shows a year just to advertise my products for Gunsmithing does that affect anything? Or is it only selling guns at gun shows only?

Really, commited suicide ? why, life is so cruel ? He looks pretty jolly here ! I had all the licenses, FFL, Black Powder Storage Permit, etc... When Mr. & Mrs.. Climpton got in the ATF took away my license. The excuse was I did not have a Mall storefront Business. What a crock. They took many licenses & permits away from law abiding dealerships ! I tried to fight them . Even contacted the "Great" NRA. They stonewalled me and eventually did nothing ! That is why I quit the NRA. They are a front and full of BS. All they want is your membership fe every year. After that you are nothing to them.

I was thinking of starting an online gun store(I have a few niche ideas to exploit), I would obviously need an FFL, so do I need to have the site up an running or do I need a business plan to present to the ATF to further ease the application process? Just wanna know before I drop money on Square Space.

Ok, I got a question for you. I am thinking of taking a course at ashworth Collage for gunsmithing, Would I need a FFL because i like to buy kits and put them together and most of these places would not let you do that unless you have a ffl so I would basically be repairing fire arms and building from time to time for my own

You do need an ffl if you are doing gunsmithing.

bf3 Dame this is old is a manufacturer's license the same as an sot
Marty McFly (1 year ago)
I was on some dealers site while back & he said he's an SOT, never heard that term before then, so checked it out. Don't remember full details, but don't think it's the same as 07's - gunsmith/manufacturer. SOT's are for class 3's (full auto) & silencers. Class 3's are legal on a federal level, but only some states allow them, no matter how many license's you have. Because class 3's are not legal in all states, I would say that an SOT is not the same as a 07, since 07's (gunsmith/manufacturer) are legal in all states. I say Google it to verify exact info.

Very helpful. Thanks. I got an FFL years ago when I was very young. I had no money and the people I knew had no money, so I never sold or bought even one gun. One thing I remember was that the process was surprisingly easy! I found the websites described above before I found this video and I immediately knew something was up. Thanks again for the FREE help.

Gfdf Perte (2 years ago)
But make sure you sell a gun or two each year. just to make it look good. I am not sure if you can use the guns you buy for the store or not. But i think you can. But you can purchase for your your collection but not all of the guns you buy. There are no good deals on firearms, plus shipping, plus insurance, plus transfer fees. and the worst part is the paper work, if you make a mistake you can and will be fined and or go to jail, plus the cost of attorney fees and the worst part what ever you say to the feds will be used to convict you during a audit. If you do make a mistake in the paper work and find out later you are fucked and you cannot even call the ATF an admit you made a mistake as this will put you in jail.
Gfdf Perte (2 years ago)
you can buy at Bud's gun shop on line way cheaper than the wholesale market. the only think the ffl does for you is if you live in a state like Connecticut you can purchase items that most people in the state cannot. if you live in a gun friendly state do not bother. go to the the Brady site if if you live in the 'F rated D rated or C rated states get your FFL

Very informative. It is amazing how many gun store owners don't know this information. Maybe because the four that are in my town have been around since JFK was in office or they didn't want to make it easier for more competition in the same town. But I was just looking for broad based answers to how difficult it is to get my FFL. I am not going to be a "gun dealer". I am studying to become a gun engraver. So most of my business will be simply working on other folks guns. But I'm sure that I'll also be buying some guns and engraving them and selling them. All I did was to call the ATF and they were extremely helpful (I must have gotten lucky in who answered the call). They gave me step by step instructions and all the forms that I needed. They even went over the "interview" process with me. But I digress. Thank you for posting this video and taking the time away from your business (and game play😉) to make and post this info. Bravo, Sir.

The reason they use old school fingerprinting is because it is more accurate. The slight offset that digital gives, regardless of the dpi on the scanner, might POSSIBLY give an inaccuracy. The physical act of placing ink onto the card is the absolutey most accurate why to do it.
ArmedLiberalinMO (2 years ago)
Be 100% sure that your locale does not have any zoning regulations that would preclude you operating your FFL from your home.  In my city, I cannot have more than one other employee, no posted signage, no posted hours outside my house and no foot traffic.  "By appointment only" is a valid set of hours to put on the Form 7.
holyass242 (2 years ago)
i have a question i live in NJ where I live every gun store around here charges almost $100 for a transfer. can i get an FFL just for transfers? so i can charge a more reasonable rate?

Just wanted to let folks know the number has changed for the distribution center it is now 703-870-7526. If you tell them right away your interested in applying for the FFL they will ask you your name, address, phone # and how many people will be on the license and then they will send the required set of finger print cards and forms needed.
