    Yes it seems obvious, but-
    I have been looking into getting my C&R license. I know the ATF can inspect your collection once a year (make sure you're recording correctly and not running a business, etc.) Do they call you in advance or just show up at your door? I know they have to give 24 hrs. notice and you can request the inspection to be at their office. I just wonder how the arangements are made.

    They will call you in advance. They will often just talk on the phone, ask you to come to their office or make an appointment with you--all at their option.


    They really don't spend a lot of time chasing after type 3's from what I have heard. They've never contacted me except when I' ve called them with a question.

    That's what I figured, I just want to know what I'm getting into before I make a contract with the feds.

    I do not know of any C&R holder who has ever actually been inspected. One guy had been licensed for 18 years without hearing from the ATF. I think they are pretty casual about C&R activities since it involves generally older guns and isn't commercial in nature.

    One more thing. Your log can be destroyed when the license expires. That's why I always let mine expire and then reapply rather than renew. That way I don't have to maintain records longer than 3 years.
