View Full Version : C&R + COE

02-14-2010, 12:02 PM
I may be having a brain fart but I heard this recently during a match.

"You can cash and carry modern firearms with a COE & C&R... this is convenient when you're doing a private sale so you don't need to drive back in 10 days."

I attempted to correct him at this point but then...

"I've done this several, several times. I even verified it with the DOJ when purchasing several guns at On Target. I paid and walked out with my S&W and other modern handgun."


Am I brain dead?

(I understand cash-and-carry with C&R firearms as well as the exemption of the 1-in-30 day rule for handguns, as I hold both a COE & C&R, but I have have serious doubts surrounding cash-and-carrying modern firearms.)

COE + C&R does not allow cash'n'carry of modern firearms.

It DOES allow exemption from the "one gun in 30 days" limit.

If OnTarget is allowing C&R+COE to bypass customer wait/DROS on modern guns, they've got problems - but somehow I doubt the source.

It only works with C&R guns. Some people call anything not antique a modern gun. After all 50 yrs is not that old, at least to me.

This gentleman made it a point that he has cash and carried during PPT/FTF sales of modern guns, emphasizing modern guns as a S&W 686, for example.

This totally raised a red flag for me.
