Do you want to know how to get your Montana FFL? Are you overwhelmed by the heavy handed Federal regulations and confusing laws and rules about being an FFL in Montana? Don’t worry, you aren’t alone!
Montana is a great place to have an FFL! Gun ownership is incredibly common, and Montana is a popular hunting destination. In fact many Montana FFL’s turn a good business during hunting season selling ammo and accessories to out of state hunters.
If you want to get a Montana FFL to deal in NFA items, it is a great state for that too! All NFA items are legal in Montana, and silencers are incredibly popular for hunting and target shooting.
Ready to get your Montana FFL? Great! Let’s look at the simple steps you need to get it.
The ATF has pretty basic requirements to get an FFL. So basic in fact, we’ll only glance at them, because the real problem lies with Montana licenses and rules.
To get an FFL, the ATF requires that you basically be a law abiding US citizen or permanent resident over 21 years of age who can legally own a firearm. Pretty simple stuff really. The paperwork is annoying, and you have to demonstrate you are planning to operate a business, but that’s not too hard.
What is hard for would-be Montana FFL holders is that the ATF also requires that you have all appropriate state and local licenses before you can be in business. And that is where the “fun” starts…
Montana makes it very easy to get an FFL, because there are no state specific firearms licenses. While some states require a redundant sort of “state issued FFL” Montana only requires you to get regular business licenses.
While there are no state level gun dealer licenses, you must still be successfully licensed with the state and the local area you are doing business in. You also have to operate in a correctly zoned area that matches the type of business you are doing.
Montana has a lot of small towns and rural areas with less restrictive zoning regulations than developed population centers. That means if you want to get a home based FFL in Montana, it should be pretty easy.
As you can see, you cannot get your Montana FFL until you are licensed to do business at the location you choose. Both the ATF and the State of Montana require that you be properly licensed locally before you can do business.
It is impossible to describe all the possible local problems getting a business license in Montana for your FFL. Typically your biggest issue will be zoning. If you are in town that’s usually pretty cut and dried. If you are trying to set up a home based FFL, you need to make sure that you can get a zoning variance for the kind of business you are trying to operate.
To get your Montana FFL, you’ll likely mostly have to satisfy the ATF that you’ve done your homework. Local business licenses shouldn’t be a problem, but there is always the chance that local offices could try and hold you up.
