So far I've sent my C&R to Midway, Brownells, Simpson LTD, SOG, Centerfire Systems, Century International Arms and Aim. I'm really interested right now in C&R handguns, so if you think I've missed a big one that has a good selection of these let me know.

Thanks for the input. Damn am I going to be broke.

There are LOTS of other companies. The one thing is that you may become your mailman’s worst nightmare. Figure that you will be getting flyers and catalogs nearly every month. This could be good or bad, depending on how you want to purchase your collection. I also sent a copy of my license to my gun collecting friends and relatives in case we needed to do some transfers. Being a C&R licensee, you may also purchase eligible firearms through on line auction sites (gunbroker.com, gunsamerica.com, etc.) One thing you should consider is to carry an unsigned copy with you in your wallet. That way, when you get to the “once in a lifetime deal” you are ready. You can even “haggle” at gun shows and shops because you have a license, and therefore require less paperwork on C&R eligible purchases. This, however, does not extend to buying non C&R firearms.


Also recently added TAPCO. I emailed their dealer sales and they told me they would accept C&R.

I'll second this advice, you never know when you'll run across a great buy !
