FFL License Requirements

Many people are interested in getting their FFL license but then wonder, “Am I eligible?” The question is usually prompted in relation to age or getting in a bit of trouble in the past.

The guidelines put forth by the ATF in order to get a FFL license aren’t as stringent as one might believe. Of course, the ATF isn’t going to let a criminal get a license which allows them to buy and sell guns, but that time you ran a red light 5 years ago isn’t going to prevent you from getting your FFL either. The requirements …

FFL Dealer – NICS background check

FFL Dealer – NICS background check

The Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, also known as the Brady Law or Brady Act, completely changed how firearms businesses operate when it comes to the sale of firearms. This was the ruling which put into place the required NICS background checks for the sale of firearms by a FFL dealer. The Brady Law was signed into effect by President Bill Clinton on November 30, 1993.

There are three instances when a NICS check can be initiated. The first is when a FFL dealer is conducting a firearm transfer. The second is, pursuant to the law, …

Of course, this is no hard and fast rule and you’ll quickly discover that pricing varies from wholesaler to wholesaler.

You don’t have to worry about doing a lot of shopping around though. One of the benefits of using the FFL123.com guide is that the shopping …

FFL License Location

Posted by in FFL123 FFL Blog

FFL License Location

Based on our experience with the FFL process, we have come to the conclusion that it is wise to define the perimeters of where your federal firearms license is actually located. When you put down your home’s address as the licensed premises, it is presumed by the ATF that the entire property is the licensed location. They will want to come and see your proposed location, and unless otherwise stated, that could potentially mean your entire house. Furthermore, should an inspection need to be conducted, your entire house could once again be inspected for inventory, bookkeeping records, etc.

However, …

On the ATF application for a FFL license, there is a section which asks the applicant to list the intended hours of operation.
