    I just wanted to check by with an expert here on what I have so far:

    I'm applying for my Type 7 FFL with a Class 2 SOT.

    I've been on the phone with the ATF field offices/NFA branch for the past 2 days, and here's what I have:

    I've checked with the state and there's no regulations for having the business at my home

    Still waiting on the city I live in. (checking on code enforcement)

    Apply for Type 7 FFL (Takes around 60 days)
    (Get inspected and approved)

    Apply for my Class 2 SOT (ATF form 5630.7) pay $500 tax stamp
    (Another inspection/aprrovial)

    Then I'm good to go?

    You need to have the state/local business licenses, tax, and any zoning things straightened out. There might be an "environmental impact statement".

    The FFL will probably take more than 60 days. Ours took more like 6 months.

    If you will be manufacturing any item on the ITAR Arms List, you need to register with the State Dept (and pay).

    Other than that, you essentially have it.

    Ok thanks!

    I've checked with my city and the business out of my home is a no go so I'm on the hunt for a office/store front.

    Do you know if I happen to have a store front am I required to keep the NFA/III weapons on site or can I store them at home?

    They will check for your safe/secure storage on-site during the inspection. If they are not at the FFL's premises, they better be logged out to a person who has authorization to possess them temporarily.
