    and with google a tap away on your phone, you can see hundreds of thousands of pics of the gun in question to see if its a bbld rcvr or a gun in its military stock.

    the ' not knowing' is a straw man really.. It more or less means too lazy to do your job. If my job is buying and selling guns.. I should, as a dealer, know a little bit about the hardware I make my livelihood from.

    I restore antique tractors, have for 20+ years, you don't think I biy them blindly knowing Zippo about the make/model in going after, do ya? ;)

    Making a mistake on a tractor buy won't cost you your business license. I don't think it is right but right and wrong and legal and illegal are different matters. I know dealers in the business for 30+ years that won't accept a firearm in the mail from a private individual. They only accept through another FFL Rifles can be rebarreled, have trigger work, drilled and tapped for scopes, etc. I am not a lawyer but I believe any alteration to the original disqualifies it as a C&R. For many their business doesn't depend on the risk. I am sure if the C&R is a rare find then they would know what it looks like but I am not talking about the one of a kind rifles. Most of the C&R's are under $200 and just not worth risking your lively hood over.

    Ok, I tried to show you that you should do research before buying. I related the tractor story. IE.. tractors, legally, are less hassle than guns.. yet I put a ton of time into tractors, .. if guns are legally more important.. look at the time needed for that research...

    No problem, I'll ignore your posts from now on and you won't have to worry about not liking my comparison posts.

    I let my C&R license expire in 2010 because of the refusal of so many FFL'S to accept my license. A C&R license is just as legal as a dealers FFL license. Totally ridiculous for it not to be accepted.

    I've only had my C&R for about a year now but I've bought 3 rifles (soon to add one pistol and one rifle) with it on GunBroker. Had zero issues with sellers accepting it and they're usually pretty accepting of not seeing original copies (i.e., sending the original with my payment so they can see the original signature). I don't like dealing with my local gun stores since they either have only brand new guns or just poor customer service (big box stores).

    I have escaped California and made it to Idaho and I did keep my C + R. I can now order C + R's without going through an FFL, Correct?
    I am enjoying the new found freedoms here.
    Thanks

    Did you change the address on your C&R to show your current location? If so, you should not have a problem.

    Sent it in the mail today as well as the CLEO letter to the sheriffs office.

    Thanks for the response.

    When you get the new C&R, you will be good to go!

    Yes, as long as you get a copy of his C&R license and ONLY ship it to the address on that C&R.
