    I am planning on leaving the country for 3.5 months for school. Is there any requirement that the ATF be notified that I will not be present at the licensed location?

    So long as the firearms themselves remain at the licensed location, I wouldn't think that there is a problem. I don't notify the ATF when I go to work, shop, or on vacation (when I am not present at the licensed location), I don't see that duration makes any difference. It just matters that the guns and the bound book stay there. Technically, you don't even need to have your "licensed location" be your home- it could be a special location specifically for that collection that you rarely visit.

    If they are being secured elsewhere temporarily, I would leave a copy of your bound book and a letter explaining how to reach you with a responsible party.

    And make sure to let them know where the spare house key is hidden so you don't have to replace your door hinges and deadbolt when you get back.

    I was under the impression they only need to be notified if you are crossing state lines with a NFA weapon.
