Has anyone haad any experience with the city of St Louis? I called ATF about a c&r and a ffl-they sounded like no big deal.I called the state for a sales tax number.No big deal,name address phone,and min$25 against tax bill. Call City.....got phone transfered about 7 times.Then told will need a business inspection for my house because ATF doesn't want any waivers(I can check this at ATF)I asked what is required to comply with the inspection....THEY CAN'T TELL ME!!WAIT TILL YOU FAIL AND FIX WHAT THEY DON'T LIKE I think they just want to keep people from getting a ffl.Oh almost forgot..will also have to have all my nieghbors sign that its OK for me to have a retail firearms business running out of my house. all I want to do is legal transfers for people I know.And to order off-duty guns for some of the locals(blue and brown shirts) not run a full-service retail shop.

Well, I can't say that I'm surprised. Who does the business inspections for the house? They should at least be able to tell you that and then you can contact that person/group. The department responsible for the inspections has to know what they are looking for. If they still give you the run around, perhaps a call to a civil(?) law firm can point you in the right direction.

I do sincerely wish you luck. I'd like to hear how it turns out.

ETA: Please carry a camera with you to record reactions of your neighbors when you ask them the question. Also, what qualifies as a "neighbor"? An entire city block?

Welcome to the City of St. Louis Business Climate; why the city will never recover - just add the gun factor on top of it . .

I'm an LEO and had an FFL for 25 years. A few years back, the department suddenly put pressure on us because we effectively were running a business from a residence. They were a big enough pain in the ass that I gave up my FFL. It's funny that it was done to dramatically reduce the number of FFL's in the City because of one or two bad apples (non LEO FFL's) selling guns to the gang bangers. The first group of people they hammered were cops!

sounds like Harxxx when he was chief then mayor. Also when I handed my Cleo copy in, the person bragged."there used to be 250 ffl in the city.I turned the list over to city licence colector and now there are 50"

I have just opened my mail.I now have a C&R!!!

Just remember you cannot hold more than one type of FFL so if you decide to go to the Full Slam type 01 you will surrender the C&R and also remember that you need to be in the business of selling guns so make sure to advertise that you do transfers....
