So I've discovered that I'm tired of driving 2 hours to find a good deal or a respectable FFL dealer.

Has anyone gone through the process of becoming an FFL? Any advice on the process?

You're biggest problem will be the following:

You can not become an FFL solely for collecting or purchasing firearms for yourself. It has to be a buisness to buy and sell firearms to make a profit.

Your local ordinances may be the biggest hurdle. I wanted to become an FFL but my local ordinances provide that you have to have a storefront - not in a residential area - to comply with the law.

This sucks because I wanted to re-manufacture ammunition, not sell firearms, and got caught up by the ordinance.

Your best bet is to check with the town/county that you would be operating in to find out what hoops you have to jump through. After that, its an easy process with the ATF as selling one gun a year (not yours - the buisnesses) and making a profit will comply with the law.
