I've often heard that the NFA branch of the BATFE is one of the only profitable sectors of the federal govt.

I can't honestly believe that stamp money pays the salaries/benies of examiners and such but even if it did, I assume there is 'profit'. Does that go into a general BATFE slush fund or what?
Anyone actually have info on this?

I'd be shocked if they were. It's almost impossible for gov to profit in anything. They couldn't run a profit selling cups of ice water in the desert.

Look at what happened with CB radio licenses back in the 70s.

Though it is true that the federal gov't tried to run a Nevada brothel and failed.
