I checked thru on tacked threads but dont recall seeing any answer to this. Is there a required amount of purchases you have to make to keep your C&R and also are you allowed to sell any weapons at all? I am not wanting to make a business out of it but I probably would end up selling them after a little while or if I bought something I did not like etc. I just requested the license packet from the ATF and can not wait........now if only if they would put A1's on C&R list...........

You can't run a business on a C&R license. That much is for sure. Otherwise you get comments about this that are all over the place.

You can sell them but only a few, a few being up to the discression of whatever agent is paying you a visit. It is a grey area best avoided IMO.

I haven't heard of any minumum purchase requirements.

No minimum purchase requirement to keep the license.

If you sell guns you don't use, don't like or are selling off some guns to finance another purchase you are not going to have a problem.

You can sell quite a few guns and not have a problem with the BATFE. If they see you CONTINUALLY buying M1 garands from the CMP for $375 and selling them for $600 you might have some explaining to do. Basically if you are not advertising, keeping items 'in stock' and continually selling the same items you will be fine.

Don't do anything you are NOT willing to explain to the compliance inspector.

+1

I bought a pair of M48 mausers, kept the matching serial number one for myself and sold the other mismatched one to my brother, which ended up being a damn accurate rifle.

Having a C&R license is great if you live in California. If a gun shop out here sells an M44 for $100 it's normally not THAT nice (but not beat) but it'll end up costing you $140.72 after you pay taxes and fees. You can find a real sweet M44 for less than $100 shipped elsewhere using your C&R. That one purchase saves you over $40 bucks which is less than the cost of the license for three years. Using my C&R license and mail ordering guns I've saved hundreds of dollars just not paying transfer fee's.
