    Question for those with a home based FFL

    If you have a home based FFL, were you required to get a letter from your city specifically stating that you are allowed to operate that type of business, or was a copy of the relevant city ordinance sufficient? I also (unfortunately) live in a neighborhood with an HOA, so the same question applies regarding the HOA.

    I believe that based on my city's codes and my HOA covenants that I would be legally allowed to have an FFL at my home address, but I'm not so sure I can get them both to give me an official letter to that effect.

    Thanks,
    Brian

    I live outside of city limits so it wasn't an issue. One of the things that the ATF does before issuing you a license is to check local city ordinances to ensure compliance.
    Basically, if it isn't against the law, then they will issue. If you do need a permit for a business, you must have that covered and you must show proof before they give it to you.
    As for the HOA covenant,you shouldn't need a letter. If they don't object then it's not an issue. I did have to inform my sheriff that I was getting an FFL though.
    He just laughed and asked what took me so long.

    The ATF IOI's are usually pretty helpful,contrary to popular belief. For them, for you to get an FFL is more job security. They'll walk you though the process and let you know what you need or don't need.
