Default FFL3 & COE

All, I am contemplating getting this just for buying ammo.
I recently thought I saw a sticky or link to helpful "how to become FFL3" post.
Can't find it now. Can someone point me to something like that?

Thanks

I just went through the process.
1) Fill out the form for the ATF
2) mail out form with $30 to atf, mail out duplicate of form for your local PD
3) Wait 2+ weeks (ATF got my application processes in 2 weeks)
4) Go through the COE process, get livescanned etc. CA processed my COE in 2 business days.

Thatís basically it. All in all it cost me $120, the FFL03 lasts 3 years and the COE must be renewed yearly.

Itís a super simple process overall

Thanks, I looked at the COE form already. What should I put for "Business Type"? Really none of them apply to me except perhaps "Collector" (which I am not in C&R terms). Also what about the CFD# and Dealer names things?

Thanks
