Licence info.

Not sure if this is the right forum or not, if it isn't please point me in the right direction.

What licence's are required for full auto and wehre do you get it? is it a FFL? or is a FFL just for buying and selling? Is an FFL worth getting?

Thanks

No special license is required by the federales to own a fully-automatic firearm. One must, however, go through an extensive background check (incl. fingerprints and a signed letter from your local CLEO) and pay a $200 transfer tax every time one purchases one.

Dealing in fully-automatic firearms and other NFA weapons requires a certain type of FFL.

Is a FFL really worth gettin if your not gonna deal reguarlly in buying and selling?

Nope. It will cost you thousands just to get all of the licenses and you have to operate a business. Even getting the SOT to deal in machineguns won't let you acquire them simply because you want to stock them. Post '86 dealer samples require a letter from some agency requesting a demonstration before ATF lets you get one. If you want a machinegun, go ahead and buy one of the transferrable ones already available to civilians.
