Step 1. Federal Requirements

Before you can get a Oregon FFL, you have to make sure you meet the basic requirements the ATF requires to get an FFL. Broadly speaking, as long as you can own a gun, you meet the minimum legal requirements here. So as long as this applies to you and any business partners, then you can continue with getting your Oregon FFL.

  • US citizen or legal permanent resident 21 years old or older.
  • No felony convictions, domestic violence convictions or dishonorable discharge from the military.
  • No pending criminal charges or active arrest warrants.
  • Able to legally own a gun.
  • Not have been adjudicated mentally incompetent.
  • Not be a user of any illegal drugs.

You also have to submit fingerprint cards and other identifying information to your application. FFL123 customers get plenty of assistance with all this, and anything else they need to finish their ATF application.

Step 2. State Requirements

Oregon is one of the many states that do not require a redundant state level gun dealer’s license. Because they just tend to repeat what the ATF already does with an FFL, there is no practical reason to have one.  So that’s one less thing you have to worry about.

You will have to get a state business license of course, and this is where you decide if you are going to operate as a corporation or some other business structure. That is up to you of course but FFL123 customers enjoy unique guided help in working through this entire process.  

Step 3. Local Requirements

 The ATF requires that FFL holders be able to conduct their business at the location they choose. That means you probably aren’t going to have a small gunsmithing operation in the middle of a heavy industrial area, and you probably aren’t going to be loading commercial levels of ammo in a residential district.

In nearly all cases, you simply have to get the local business licenses for your city/county and choose a properly zoned location that suits your business type. Sure, places like Portland are weird and anti-gun, but even there you won’t have many problems setting up shop.

Sometimes people setting up small home based FFL’s run into zoning issues or even outright ignorance on the legality of home based FFL’s in Oregon. But that’s ok, we can help you with that should any problems come up.

In fact, FFl123 specializes in helping folks who want to operate a small home based FFL get their FFL and setup shop. Just let us know if you have any problems along the way, and we’ll work with you to overcome them!

Step 4. Business Requirements

You might think that it’s pretty simple to handle business needs. After all, you’ve got your licenses, you’ve got a storefront, what else do you need?

A lot really. Everything from software for keeping your Bound Book, to insurance, to what kind of cash register is best. A lot of small businesses trip up here and either spend too much or don’t get the right kinds of things for their business location. There are a lot of things you need for a successful storefront business operation, and some of them are firearms industry specific.

FFL123 customers naturally enjoy help here too, and we’ll talk with you about what has been best for other FFL holders or what we’ve found is ideal for your circumstances. Just drop us a line!

Step 5. Industry Connections

Most gun manufacturers prefer to sell their products through large wholesale distributors. These distributors in turn sell to gun dealers all over the country. But not all distributors are made equal. Many have large minimum order requirements. Some will only do business with brick and mortar stores, and leave the small home based FFL behind. Others require lines of credit that may be out of reach for some FFL holders.

A lot of small, home based FFL’s have a hard time getting inventory, but FFL123 customers don’t have that problem. You see, we’ve carefully put together a list of distributors and wholesalers who are happy to do business with even the smallest of FFL’s, regardless of if they maintain a dedicated storefront or not. This is just one of many free services we give to our customers even after they get their FFL.
