Friday, the USPS delivered my brand new shiny and crisp C&R License. I sent it in about 14 January, 2008 with a check and it arrived here dated for 1 February, 2008. That would be about 17 days.
Now comes the big decision, what should be my first C&R purchase.
There are certain requirements that are mandated such as it must be 50 years of age or more. Or it must be specifically listed on the Firearms Curios or Relics List as C&R eligible. And I also have to find someone who is willing to sell to a C&R License (03) holder rather than a Federal Firearms License (01).
Even more importantly, I have to find something I really like. I am somewhat enamored of 22 caliber training rifles; particularly those with a military background. But I am also fond of the various Lee Enfield, Krag Jorgenson and US Military rifles out there. Then there are old deer rifles and lots of nice shotguns out there.
There is also the question should it be a shooter or not. I'm really not into firearms that don't work although I do have a couple.
Well time to get on with the search. Whatever I find the adventure is on now.
