FFL At Wholesale Prices FFL123

Just about every single item sold by every single store everywhere in the world was purchased from a wholesaler, had the price marked up, and then sold to the consumer for retail prices. This includes firearms, which are purchased from gun wholesalers and then sold in your local gun shop.

Having your own home based FFL allows you to take advantage of the price breaks that come with purchasing wholesale firearms.

It could be a new release that’s hard to find; maybe an importer brought in a small batch from overseas; or a manufacturer did a small, limited run for a single …

Will Biden Doom Us All

On January 20th, Joe Biden will be inaugurated the 46th President of the United States. He will have a democrat majority congress, and an urge to engage in progressive left wing politics in order to differentiate himself from Trump, and appease his support base who have spent the last four years feeling oppressed and victimized in the midst of one of the greatest economies the world has ever seen, and during a time when the US engaged in no new foreign wars.

Part of this progressive agenda always includes gun control. To the progressive mind, we must dismantle law enforcement because …

FFL is Easy to Get - FFL123

You might think that the process to get your Federal Firearms License is long, drawn out, and expensive – but you’d be wrong, and we’re here to prove it to you. After all, we wouldn’t be FFL123.com if that weren’t the case, right?

Determining Federal Eligibility

The first step in getting your FFL is making sure you’re eligible and meet the necessary requirements. Essentially, if you can legally buy a gun, then you can more than likely get an FFL. People who do not meet the requirements are referred to by the ATF as a “prohibited person.”

A “prohibited person” is someone who:

Can an FFL Buy a Gun Anywhere in the US

The short answer to this question is yes. An FFL can buy a gun anywhere in the United States. However, as with anything that involves the Federal government and firearms, there are some caveats.

We’ll go over the ways you can buy guns with your FFL and what you must do in order to stay within the confines of the law. Sure, there are some nuances here and there, but it’s really not hard to figure it out and it certainly shouldn’t deter you from getting your FFL.

All 50 States

Gun laws vary from state to state, which can make buying and …

Atf backing down? - FFL123

One of the great universal constants of life is that the ATF cannot be trusted to be consistent. Or at times even trusted – just ask the children at Waco. With that in mind, the ATF has changed their position on pistol wrist braces so many times, that it is almost pointless to write about them. We recently wrote about the plan to place many braced equipped guns on the NFA registry.  However, the ATF suddenly reversed their position on December 23, 2020, by withdrawing their attempts to formulate a rule concerning pistol braces which would have placed …

Polymer 80 Raid - FFL123

By now you’ve probably heard about the ATF raid on Polymer 80, which wound up with them not only seizing records concerning one of their full build kits, but also in agents seizing unbuilt kits from customers who purchased them in good faith.

A bit of background though before we continue. The ATF holds that a receiver or frame that is 80 % complete or less is not subject to regulation as a firearm. The ATF determines for a given type of frame what constitutes an 80 percent receiver. In some cases, as with the common 80 percent AR-15 lower, …

things to do to cope with biden presidncy

Barring some sort of wild change, it is certain at the time of this writing, that Joe Biden will be the 46th President of the United States. It is also certain that he has loudly campaigned on the sort of tiresome gun control that Democrats have bitterly clung to since the early 1990’s. In fact, his efforts are so tiresome, so repetitive, and so predictable as to not bear repeating here, although they can be summed up as a senile old man muttering worn out talking points of another generation in between sniffing the hair of children.

By now, gun owners …

2021 Uncertainty FFL123

While at the time of this writing, there are still various legal challenges to the 2020 US presidential election, barring something extraordinary from one or more courts, it is almost certain that Joe Biden will become the 46th President of the United States. There is also a chance that the US Senate could be a 50/50 split to pair with a democrat majority in the House of Representatives.

This has lead to some serious concerns about the future of gun control and gun ownership in the United States. However, speculation tends to lead to long winded click bait articles of no …

The new revised ATF Form 4473 has caused some confusion and even annoyance with FFL holders. After all, new paperwork is always disruptive, and the key points of a 4473 seemingly shouldn’t change, right? Many of the changes on the new 4473 are seemingly minor. A few words or tenses of words changed, headers and material shuffled around, and other similar corrections.

However, there were a few key changes made that FFL’s should be aware of. The ATF gave a full rundown of the changes, and as you can see most are fairly trivial or simply making …

2020 Gun and Ammo Scarcity

We interrupt our regularly scheduled program of industry news and observations of interest to bring you new industry news and observations of interest. Which is to say, what we’d plan to send out this week got pushed aside by a rather interesting tidbit we tripped over yesterday.

Right now, you are probably struggling to get ammo and popular guns in stock. In most parts of the US what is available sells almost as soon as it comes in. 2020 has shaped up to be a new record-breaking year for gun and ammo sales, and if the political balance of power …
