    Got the call from ATF!

    My 03 FFL (C&R) was approved a couple of days ago! woohoo! ...I should have it in hand sometime between today and Monday!

    so...I'm taking suggestions...what should my first purchase be?
    I'm thinking a nice simple (and cheap) M44? ...love that thump! Always wanted a K31 as well...
    my list is significantly longer than my pockets are deep so....

    Congrats, I'm still waiting for my call. A K31 I believe would be a great purchase, one in walnut if you can find it. The beech ones look like a hampster ate them. These guns seem to be trickling up in value, M44's will be cheap and plentiful for some time to come.

    Get a K31 before the prices jump up higher than they are now.

    Then a M44, M38, 91/30 etc, etc.

    oh, and ammo, don't forget the ammo!!!

    Get the GP-11 for the K31 from AIM. They still have some!

    Drop a copy in the mail to Midway USA as soon as you get it in, That will make you a dealer, and the prices on a lot of stuff goes down nicely. Not just reloading equipment, but gear, and accessories too.

    Thanks guys!
    ...And for anyone thinking about getting one do it today! It's only $30 for 3 years...paperwork takes maybe 10 minutes to fill out.
    Very easy process...though the waiting was the hardest part.

    From what I've seen the license can pay for itself the first time it's used...the dealer discounts and lack of transfer fees can add up.

    printed out my own bound book pages and have some form letters made up so that I can send my license out and get on some places that give the discounts...brownells, midway, sog, century, etc, etc.

    I bought a new stock, and forgrip with rails and vertical forend grip for my AK from Midway, that alone more than paid for the license.

    It's all gravy from here on.

    Good job.

    I'd gotten about all my C&R's before really giving thought to getting licence - silly really!

    I reckon for sure you'll get the ''triumvirate'' - M38, M44 and the 91/30. A Swiss and a K98 would be nice - oh and don't forget a MkIV Enfield too, and a MkV Jungle!

    Of course - there's more LOL ........

    I have to ask. About how much did it cost to get the Class 3 Lic?

    From scratch meaning just being a regular guy and not a licensed dealer before you started.

    I appreciate it and congrats

    I've been thinking about eventually getting an FFL license, but not anytime soon. What are the benefits of having one? Would I be able to buy guns online, and have them shipped directly to me?

    $30 for 3 years and 10 minutes of time to fill out the paperwork...anyone can get one if you can legally own a gun

    This is not a Class 3 SOT ... that I believe is $500/year plus you need a type 01 FFL.

    Type 03 FFL is not a dealer's license...it is for collectors...it allows you to get a dealer discount at many places though and lets you get certain guns shipped right to your door with no transfer through a 01 FFL
