If you want to collect them at dealer cost in some cases and have them shipped to your house its a good idea. Its only 30 bucks for 3 years. After you get your C&R you can submit the License to places like Brownells and Midway and start getting dealer cost. Also you can start ordering right from the suppliers. Most suppliers won't have Marlins but if you find one online you can have is shipped directly to you and save youself the 20 bucks or so in transfer fees.
My first order at midway after getting my C&R and using dealer cost saved me like 50 bucks so it pays for itself fast.
Also as Popeye stated just b/c its a C&R doesn't mean it doesn't shoot. I would say that almost everything that I have seen that C&R qualifies shoots just fine. You may find an occasional wall hanger but buying them from a supplier, you'll never see that unless that's what your wanting.
