    I've looked for the answer to this question with no result.

    Are you required to get an FFL if you are selling an "excessive" number of guns over Internet auction sites?


    These transactions are always shipped directly to an FFL holder which does the neccessary paperwork. So we're legal there. I've just got a bug lately to buy and repair/restore different guns and make some money on the side. Anyone have an idea if they Feds get their panties in a twist over scenarios like this?

    You are not selling your personal collection. You are buying, repairing and reselling firearms to generate income. Sounds like you should get your FFL before you get dinged for dealing without a license.

    Seems to me that if you are making regular ongoing sales you are a dealer.
    Even if BATFE doesn't come after you...there are still the State and local tax goons that are gonna want their share...

    If you're doing repairs, get a type 07: Manufacturer of Firearms, since it's essentially gunsmithing. May be harder to get, but it will cover your butt better than a 01.
