    A license is needed to sell ammo, but not non-serialized gun parts (i.e. anything but recivers).

    There is no Federal License to sale ammo. If you manufacture ammo for sale then you have to get a license. I let my mfg license expire back in the 90's because it was cheaper to sale already made ammo.

    The FFL is needed if you want to sale receivers or actual guns.

    ATF says in their FAQ that NO license is required to sell ONLY ammunition.

    Yes, you're right. Sorry.
    The license is needed to make and sell ammo, not to sell factory ammo.

    Correct, I've seen ammo before on sale at a gas station by a popular shooting spot, I doubt they would have bothered to get an FFL to sell a little bit of ammo.

    People many times fail to realize there is different types of FFL licensing beyond a standard one (title 3?) and C&R licensing.

    My personal favorite FFL: "Dealer in Destructive Devices."

    Greatest. Business Card. Ever.

    Anyone ever see a store that only specializes in ammo/accessories? We had one in my area that closed down and another was like that at first then branched out in to firearms,the one still in business manufactures ammo though, IIRC the older defunct store did not.
