I done doed it!
My application for a Class 3 FFL went off in the mail today, along with the necessary copy directed to the local CLEO as required by statute. It's supposed to take 4-8 weeks to get the license. In the meantime, I need to look into sources for the rifles I can buy as "curios and relics" under the license. Any guidance you CRFFLers out there can give me along those lines would be greatly appreciated. I'm looking especially to buy shooters. By that I mean rifles (and perhaps pistols) that are mechanically in good shape; that is, the barrels and actions are well enough preserved that they are worth fixing up either as military examples or sportarized weapons. And yes, Polish, the German Mausers are high on my list!
