    Cool C&R discounts at Brownell's.

    I've been addressing envelopes over the weekend and contacting suppliers about sending in my C&R license. My wife's making copies for me today and they're going out tomorrow.

    I spoke with a CSR at Brownell's a little while ago and they've already got me set up with discount pricing. I logged into my account there expecting to see prices discounted by 10% or so and almost fell outta my chair. As the CSR explained it to me, there isn't a set percentage for the discount as each of their vendors charges them differently but a quick check of a few items quickly had my li'l heart thumping: 8rd. Wilson #47D 1911 mags (retail price: $29.95, C&R price:$23.97), Mec-Gar 17rd. mags for Sig P226 (retail:$28.50, C&R:$18.50) (Hear that Chris??? ). Hard to beat deals like that! If all I buy is stuff from Brownell's, the license will pay for itself with my first or second order. Having C&R eligible guns shipped directly to my door is just icing on the cake.

    I can already tell this is going to be the best $30 I've ever spent!

    I just got mine recently also and need to get set up with Brownells. Who else are you sending your copy to? Everyone on "the list" or just companies that you actually buy from?

    Just a few really. I also called RK Enterprises for their C&R package as , according to Cruffler.com, they've got the best "bound book" out there. The package cost me $35 shipped and includes the bound book, full list of C&R sources and a bunch of other info. Really nice lady too! Give them a call: (805) 687-1416.

    So far my "List" is:
    Brownells
    Midway
    Makarov.com
    AIM
    SOG
    J&G
    Kittery Trading Post (fellow Forum member CLASS3NH works there PT)
    Dan's Sporting Goods (They've got beautiful Walther P-38/P-01s)

    I'm also going to talk to the 'smith at my usual gunshop and see if he'll give me a deal on "safety checks" for whatever guns I buy. He fixed up my Mil-Spec not long ago and seems to do good work.

    I just called the National Licensing Center (NLC) in Atlanta, told them what I wanted and they transferred me to the right office. I think the application package took about a week or so to arrive and the actual license came in right at three weeks after I mailed it in.
    Good luck!

    I hear ya Jack - tho in fact when I first set up my account with them they had me listed as business and so I got discounts anyways.

    I believe too - subject to checking - they might give discount for Certified NRA Instructors.

    I hadn't thought of that but it makes perfect sense. You Certified Instructors are on the "front lines" of furthering the interest in shooting sports and responsible gun ownership. Short of the Armed Forces, I'd say you guys probably train more folks to shoot responsibly that any other organization in America. BTW, thanks for that!

    Of course, where you live has a huge bearing on how soon you get your license. Living in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, it took over 90 days to get mine.

    Reason: ONE MAN handles DFW, Houston and Austin. That's a pretty big load. Still worth it though!

    Steve C&R is a Curio and Relic Federal Firearms License, it allows a collector to purchase and maintain a collection of classic firearms which are in a list published by BATF

    It also allows them to transfer those firearms like a regular FFL Dealer (usually not modern arms) these collecftors have to keep a book like dealers but not with all the headaches!

    So if you and I were C&R licensees and I wanted to buy a firearm that is on the C&R list, I would send you a copy of my C&R and you could legally ship the firearm directly to me and avoid having to ship through our favorite gun dealers.

    Thanks for the lead, added them to my outgoing mail as well as Empire Arms and Cole Distributing. Spent most of today setting up a spreadsheet to track vendors I've sent my license to (and when) along with their contact info and web addresses.
