You can buy and sell to benefit your firearms collection though, correct?
Say I see a Rem 870 Express for $50 at a garage sale. I don't want it but know I can sell it for more or trade it for something better down the line, so I buy it. Maybe I will loan it to a buddy on a hunting trip or take it as a back-up gun sometime in between. Is this operating as a dealer?
I bought a gun FTF and took it out shooting. Someone offered me double what I payed at the range. I nearly sold it only a few hours after purchasing it. I was shooting it pretty well so held onto it, but I came real close.
