    ok, i've been mainly lurking here for a while and asking a question here and there, and you guys mention the curio and relics thing in order for you to purchase older guns, usually milsurp firearms w/o having to go through a FFL.

    how old do you have to be in order to get a c/r liscense? (i'm 18 btw)

    how often do you use yours?

    is it worth it?

    You have to be 18 and it is only worth it if you're into that sort of thing. I thought about getting mine, but honestly, I don't care much for "antique" firearms.

    If you plan to pick up alot of milsurp type guns it is worth it, I've used it to obtain several rifles in the last couple years I've had it, savings in FFL fees have more then paid for the license fee. If your interested in old rifles and handguns, its well worth it, I've not used it for handguns yet cause of NY law but once I move I will be buying a few handguns with it.

    No FFL fees on certain firearms that are c&r eligible, sent directly to your home, generally you get much much better deals on c&r guns mailorder then you'll ever find local. theres plenty more read the link 01 posted.

    There are some classIII guns that are considered C&R, you send out copies of your license to various sellers, get a copy of shotgun news from book store you'll see all sorts of add's for c&r guns you sendem in a copy of your license they put it on file and just send the guns direct to you when you order them. Use to be a local gun shop here, Wholesale Guns and Ammo that big ad's in Shotgun News, they'de match there ad prices instore when instore was generally higher, they also use to cut me better deals on other stuff that wasn't c&r usually didnt charge me sales tax either, i miss them :wtc:

    wtf... so you dont buy the guns from a central location? so if its a gun considered to be a C&R you can get it shipped to you.. so you dont really get discounts or anything?

    brownells gives you discounts on other merchandise, basically your saving the normal FFL transfer fees by having the license. And no theres no central government place you buy all the guns from :rofl: but you can get stuff fromm some wholesalers that usually dont sell to individuals.
