I'm going to buy a new house or duplex in 6-12 months and want a FFL about half a year after that.

Is it still possible to get a FFL out of a home? If so, how'd you do it?

Thanks,

Mike

EDITED to add that I've already got a C&R- I'm looking at business here.

Because of the rise of the online auctions, you can now have an FFL out of your home. But, you still need CLEO permission, fill out ATF Forms, pay the fees, submit a drawn layout of your house, have a way to secure the firearms (safe, etc), have a visit from the nice folks from the ATF, and then get approved.

If I remember right, your home has to also be approved by the Zoning Dept. as a business....

I thought about it, but I dont buy enough to justify the trouble and cost. I do have a C&R, I emailed ATF got form in the mail a few days later. 2 months later I get permit,

If you want to get a C&R FFL so you can have a personal collection you can get one for $30 for 3 years. If you want to do business you'll have to check zoning laws, have a "premisis" to do business from(a house doesn't count unless you set aside part of it for the public) and get a Type 01 FFL which cost more. Here's the ATF web site, they can answer all your questions.

Hmm, that's not an angle I considered...

Wonder if I can pull that off in Mesa or unincorporated Maricopa County..?

Got it in the mail a few weeks later.



Got that- want a type 01 or 07.
