    The application form for the C&R license seems to be a generic 'one-size-fits-all' form. On the last line of the form that asks for a signature, it asks for a title, do I write in 'not applicable' or 'individual' for this blank?

    Also where do I send the paperwork? It states to send it to their Atlanta Office, but I've also read on certain forums that recently it needs to be sent elsewhere such as Dallas, anyone have any ideas on this?

    I didn't put anything under "Title", sent it to Atlanta and got it in a month.

    Good luck!

    Send it to Atlanta.
    They're discontinuing the use of the Dallas address.

    I just put 'collector' for title.

    BTW, if you've got a decent printer and legal paper, use this editable PDF of the application and this editable PDF (use regular letter size paper for this one) of the Certification of Compliance that you have to submit with your application.

    I wish I'd found these before I sent mine in as I must have went through a dozen copies before I managed to write up one that was legible. :evil:

    Oh yeah, I forgot to say 'Welcome, welcome to big debt city', as your C&R license will be a ticket to the poorhouse. :D

    Make sure to send in the citizenship form as well! Good luck, and good MilSurp hunting!

    Actually this might save me some money, I've bought a few dozen milsurps over the last 3 or 4 years at retail prices, couldn't get any worse, right?:D

    Another question: I just need the C&R form and the Cert of compliance correct? I don't need any kind of notorization, fingerprinting or any other hassles correct?

    For some reason, the whole process seems too easy and I'msecond guessing if I'm doing everything correctly or not.

    There is no fingerprinting. I don't remember any notarizations, but just read the instructions real well.

    Congrats, you are going to be broke, but you are going to save a lot of money too!

    No notarizations or fingerprints needed.

    Just don't forget to send copies of the forms to the Chief Law Enforcement Officer (Usually the county Sheriff or Chief of Police if you live in an incorporated town).

    Mine wound up roundfiling them, but it is the law.

    Funny, on other forms I've filled out I put "Mr" for title, I figured it was for Mr, Mrs, Miss, Ms, Dr, Rev, etc.....

    "It states to send it to their Atlanta Office, but I've also read on certain forums that recently it needs to be sent elsewhere such as Dallas."

    I love that one. Why would anyone go by what someone said on a web site instead of what is clearly printed on the form?

    "Title" is filled in only if the applicant is a corporation where the title (president, vice president, CEO) is that of the person signing. Otherwise it is left blank or N/A (not applicable) used.

    By the way, when buying or selling under the C&R license, be sure to obey all state and local laws. The license does NOT grant immunity from those laws, and many states do not recognize a "C&R" category or the Collectors License itself.

    Jim

    Well, because what's printed on the form may be wrong :). I sent my C&R application to the Dallas address that was on the form I printed from the ATF website. The Atlanta address is the correct one, though. Fortunately, it did get forwarded (I mailed it in April).

    mhdishere's got it right, your "title" is Mr. or Mrs. or Ms. or Dr. (or Dark Lord of the Sith :p )
