    Now the wait begins. Just applied for the C&R license. It would be nice to have a Garand or a Tokarev show up at the front door, or a crate of Mosin-Nagants. :supergrin:

    Yep, it's a pretty awesome feeling to have the UPS guy hand you a gun. My first C&R purchase was a Yugo SKS, back when they were reasonably priced. I think I paid $179 for a VG condition SKS from AIM Surplus.

    I let my C&R expire and have been thinking about getting one again. I guess I need to peruse the offerings on the milsurp type sites and see what's out there these days.

    Hell yeah. I hear it speeds up the process a little when you want an NFA item, as well. But that's later.

    For those who already have one, how long did you have to wait?

    10-14 days, and average 10 days on renewals. I've read some folks wait around 30 days for new. No real deals anymore, the days of cheap milsurp ammo and firearms are long gone. I just use mine for dealer discounts, mostly Brownells, Midway, CDNN, Numrich, etc. Also burn your CC now.:cool:

    I was thinking a crate discount once a year or so. Now I need a safe.

    Just make sure you have everything noted that you buy or sell in the unlikely event you get audited.

    Just a few weeks, IIRC. It was several years ago when I first got it.

    Remember that once you get it, you can get discounts at some good online sources - MidwayUSA, Brownells, Grafs&Sons, etc.

    I remember seeing creates of Yugo SKS's, and Mosins being sold,couldn't imagine the shipping cost. I used to buy Mosins M38, M44, M91/30's from the best importer/dealer (Aztec) at $59.00 each. The best import stamp ever, so small and fine.

    Quite surprising, as I assumed it would be the standard 4-8 month wait like anything else you want ATF approval for.

    It won't take long. Don't sign the original, make copies and sign those (blue ink, I do anyway), send to dealers/ companies, and let the spending begin. If you want a list of vendors let me know and I'll send you info. I also have a file for your bound book, no need to buy one, just print and put in a binder. You will need to record your purchases, and disposals.

    It took 4 Weeks for my C+R to come in the mail.
    First gun was a Polish P64 pistol (9mm Mak).
    A couple weeks ago I went to the Peoria Gun Show and walked out with a really nice K98 Mauser byf41. No major paperwork, I just signed a copy of my 03 and he signed a copy of his 01 exchanged them and a little money and I took the gun home. That 03 C+R really works good!

    That's what I was thinking! I can do a 4473 in my sleep, but why bother for some things? I'm sure I still have much to learn to be and stay legit, and not run afoul of Big Bro.


    Where can I find more information about FFL sales, etc.?

    Thanks.

    Cool. No biggie to use it, either. Hopefully, I'll have an extra Benjamin in a few weeks and put it to good use! :supergrin:
