I've had mine since the Clinton administration. It only costs $30 for a 3 year license. This allows you to collect guns on the Curio & Relic list. All you have to do is fill out the BATF application and send a copy of the app. to your "chief law enforcement" person in your area. I send mine to my Chief of Police in my little town. The C&R FFL allows you to order guns directly from the manufacturer straight to your door. You just mail the company your signed FFL and they will ship to you. No FFL transfer fees and warehouse prices. The only downside is that you cannot make a habit of buying guns for cheap and selling them for profit. It is for collecting only. You can sell a firearm here and there, but it's sketchy on what constitutes "conducting business". I never sell mine though. You must also keep a log of your purchases and sales. You are also subject to an inspection bye the BATF. You can do that in your home or haul all your C&R weapons and your logbook to their office. I've never been inspected before. It's a great thing for only $30 for three years. Here is what I've purchased with mine: CZ-52 pistol It fires 7.62x25 rounds. It will make the guy at the gun range get off his butt to see what the hell are you shooting. Some Russian M-44's 7.62x54r and M1938 8mm French Mas 49/56 7.5mm Enfield #5 Jungle Carbine M91/30 Mint Yugo 59/66 SKS - you can still barely see the night sights glow in the dark Most of these were right around $100 or lower when bought. However, it can get real expensive. I stick to the cheap stuff. Forgive the comforter With attack dog!
