Wow! I got my ffl03. I received it alot faster than I expected based on what I was told. I sent out the app on 5/27 and the license was postmarked 6/15.

Time to make the many copies.

Congrads! I expect that you'll have at least 10 copies in the mail by tomorrow, right?

Remember, every C&R purchase is one less DROS that won't help fund the implementation of that stupid AB2080 from a couple of years ago, that would require out-of-state sellers to go through the DOJ system before shipping C&R guns to CA.

Don't forget - DO NOT sign your original license! Only sign the copies.

I've called and harassed them almost every day this past week.

Still no dice:(

Harassment may not be the best route. Remember, you are daling with the Government.

Are there any places that will give discounts on FFL01 firearms to FFL03 holders?

Well, the ATF charged my card on 12 June so I assume ( bad habit to get into) that everything is good to go. We'll see what happens. Congrats to you.

Call me dumb but is it worth getting an FFL 03. What are the benifits. My record is clean, no problems and spend lotsa money with brownells and midway not to mention the other parts companies. Like I said just asking.

I finally got mine yesterday. The little green envelope and the big white package. They charged my credit card about 3 and a half months ago, when I sent it in.

Lets see now, what first. Crapload of stuff from Brownells, or Swiss K31?? New press from Midway or Mauser K98?? Decisions decisions...

Judge for yourself, but I've written down notes on the three companies I've established my C&R discount with so far:

what do you have to do to get an ffl03 license? Is it hard at all? And can you do any firearms transfers or does it have to be C&R?

My card was charged on 6-28 and I haven't gotten anything yet. :confused:

I put a call in but the recording said that all the agents were busy and propmted me to leave a voice mail.

Will they send something letting me know if for some strange reason I am not approved?

Yes, they will let you know if you are denied. But you would have to have something on your record that would deny you the right to own firearms for that to happen.

Two months is a pretty standard wait time, so you've got a couple of weeks before you should even worry about it.

I sent out my form Monday the 14th. The debited my account Thursday the 17( is see they are fast to take the money). Lets see how fast I get my paperwork. MMMMM only the postman knows for sure! I guess it varies on the time. I had a DHS background check early this year and a LifeScan done also, maybe this will speed it up or maybe I will just be waiting also!

The nice lady at the ATF told me that I was approved yesterday and that I will get my "kit" in 7-10 business days!

I CAN'T WAIT! :D :D :D

Excellent! As soon as it comes in, start sending in your C&R to places, and work your way down this page:

If anyone knows a C&R discounter that I missed, let me know and I'll see about getting 'em on there!
