    They seem to be very different things The C&R licenese is a FFL issued by the ATF to allow you to buy and sell old guns. What you linked is a degree mill diploma that says you're a gunsmith. If you want to buy old guns the latter doesn't help you out. If you want a diploma that says you're a gunsmith the 1st doesnt help you out.

    Good Morning

    Here at Dravur U, you too can be an accredited Gunsmith, Auto Mechanic or a Brain Surgeon. All you have to do is send me $99 and I will send to you, a one of a kind, fully printed form that definitely states that yes... you too are a Gunsmith, Auto Mechanic or a Brain Surgeon.

    In fact, for only $10 more, you can have any title you want printed on one of our "diplomas" It will be printed on fine white paper and come with rich colored ink from our world famous color printer.

    So, send us a check at Dravur U and you too can amaze your friends that you are a Brain Surgeon or even a Race Car Driver.

    Be the envy of the neighborhood. think how much your friends will respect you if you have a wall full of Diplomas.

    ORDER NOW!

    Ask us about our 2 for 1 special... Be a Rodeo Clown and a Wall Street Banker

    Is there a difference between "Pheonix State University" and "University of Pheonix"?
    Surely the city of Pheonix doesn't have two low rated, worthless diploma factories!
    I would never seek out a diploma with the name "Pheonix" on it.

    Did you look at their accreditation? According to them, the AATVS accredited MIT.

    Since when is MIT a "trade and vocational" school? I'll be this is news to MIT.

    I just tried Googling AATVS. They have a web site. The design look suspiciously similar to that of the "university" claiming to be accredited by them. Curiously (or not), nowhere on the AATVS web site is there any indication of where they are located. There is no physical address, no mailing address, no telephone or fax number, and no e-mail contact. The only way to contact them is to fill out an on-line form and submit it, which allows them to remain anonymous to you.

    I smell a rat.

    Let's look at some registration for the supposed place these guys are accredited:

    Let's look at the site selling the certificate:

    Well, I'll be. The same guy!

    There's plenty of equally damning information out there about this being some little gun shop in Arizona, but no point in beating up on the dead horse.

    Caveat Emptor.

    Well, how many fools sent money to a PO box in Florida to get info on how to buy rifles from the government instead of just getting the info free from CMP?

    There's a sucker born...
