I have thought about it but do not have one. I have a great FFL guy near me that takes very good care of me. my gun is shipped to him, i fill out a form, I toss him a few bucks, I take my gun home. no problem..... how much better can it get? no biggy if it comes directly to me, also it gives me an excuse for me to visit him and his shop.
A guy at work told me if I get a C&R , then A.T.F. can come visit my home any time they like , even if I am not here. how about that???? that was all I needed to hear to say no.

Not unless they have a warrant. They can request an interview and a reconciliation of your bound book with the firearms you still own that you have purchased with your C&R license, this is usually done at a place convenient for both parties. I have never heard of anyone having the BATF come to thier home to do a visual check.
As long as you keep an accurate record of what, who and when you buy or sell ("for enhancement of your collection") your C&R fiearms you have very little to be concerned about.
Your current supplier may change his policies, close up or move; your C&R is always yours and may entitle you to discounts you never realized.
Get one and send a copy to Midway, Brownells, Interordnance, Century Arms, J&G Sales, Aim Surplus, and any other distributor for deals you never knew you could get including ammo, parts, ect. The best thing is it comes to your house, the only down side is that going to your local dealer you can handle the items before you buy. I have never had to return anything I have purchased on my C&R and I have bought a lot of stuff. You will hear a few horror stories, but there is always that 1% or so that soemthing gets screwed up. Good luck, for $10 a year you can't lose!

I think that it would be nice if there was no need for a FFL, or atleast they were easier to get. That being said, the C&R is the next best thing. I just wish the list of eligble weapons was longer.

I've only heard of three C&R holders being checked on, and I've had a C&R for 9 years. ALL of those were in New England states, and ALL were told to bring the books in to the BATFE office.
BATFE has better things to do than chase Mausers and Enfields around. Like, I don't know, look for real criminals?

While I don't agree with permits for exercising Constitutional rights, the fact is a C&R license is a great deal. So is my CCW permit.

I just perused the good ol' BATFE's web site and I didn't see mention of this...

A C&R FFL is good for the transfer of firearms, so if you don't renew after 3 years, you can still keep all the weapons as long as your bound book is retained, correct?
