I have been looking for a mosin nagant anywhere near houston, perferably a m44. If anyone knows I would appericiate it.
They are two different levels of Federal Firearms License. An FFL 01 license is required to deal in/transfer arms (buy, sell); an FFL 03 (AKA "Curio & Relic" license) allows a person to take direct transfer of weapons designated as a curio or relic; it does not permit you to engage in the business of buying & selling. Here's a thread on that topic, as well as the process to obtain the license. I hold an FFL 03 license... best $30 I ever spent... the cost was covered with my first C&R purchase.oh and it says you need a "FFL Dealer/03 Collector License Required" what is that:?:
I'd say skip trying to get one and go with buds gunshop. They have a FFL dealer locator on their site, free s&h and they have good prices. Also they show the current fee of the FFL dealer of your choice. GL!!!thanks where or how would you get the licence and about how long would it take
C&R records keeping is really not so bad... no worse than what you'd probably do even without holding a C&R. I have always kept a record of my firearms, date purchased, where purchased, serial number and description. Same for the firearms I sold. If - for no other reason - insurance purposes. The very same records satisfy the C&R records keeping requirements. As to C&R "restrictions"... there really aren't any that I can think of... I'm free to purchase directly, and receive direct shipment of, any weapon designated a curio or relic. I can sell - privately - any weapon I own, C&R or not, same as before, provided I comply with my state's requirements for private sales.... if I were to get my C&R, plus then I'd have all the C&R restriction and responsibilitys when it came to selling or messing with the guns....
