How To Become An FFL Dealer

If you are wondering how to become an FFL dealer specific to your state, you have come to the right place! You may have heard horror stories about how getting an FFL license can be a long, stressful, and drawn-out process that is likely to end in a rejection from ATF.

This is not the case for our customers here at FFL123. Also, you have probably heard that most folks that apply for the FFL license are rejected the first time. Making it even harder, it can be extremely difficult to get an FFL approved once denied the first time. So, what steps can you take to ensure that you have all the insider knowledge you need to get the FFL license or become an FFL dealer? FFL123 can help show you how to become an FFL holder in a quick 60-day turnaround!

The Difference Between FFL and Class 3

To clarify, there really is no such thing as a “class 3 license.” Instead, they are called “Special Occupational Taxpayers,” which is a fancy term for people who are licensed by the government to sell suppressors, SBRs, SBSs, machine guns, etc. The “class 3” terminology comes from the different classes of SOTs, the most common of which is (you guessed it) class 3, which allows the business to buy and sell items regulated by the National Firearms Act (NFA).

To become a SOT and deal in NFA items, you first have to get an FFL. As we mentioned above, this can be an intimidating task to undertake by yourself, but it doesn’t have to be if you utilize the FFL123 guides.

Our FFL guide will help you cut through the red tape and jargon and get you on the path to FFL approval as quickly as possible. Then, once you have your FFL, you can use our Class 3 guide to get your SOT just as quickly and easily. With both of those items in hand, you can start buying and selling guns and NFA items and take advantage of the booming market for yourself!
