FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I get an FFL?

Honestly, it’s not that hard.  You can fill out the application (ATF Form 7), gather all the required information (fingerprints, photos, business info), and send it off to the ATF on your own.  If that’s not the worst sales-pitch ever, I don’t know what is!

RocketFFL is here to make sure that you get it done right, you make the right choices for the many decisions you’ll have to make, and you get up and running as an FFL fast!

How much does an FFL cost?

It depends.  The cost of an FFL can range anywhere from $30-$3,000 every three years.  The two most common types of FFLs, Type 1 Dealer/Gunsmith and Type 7 Manufacturer, cost $200 for the first 3 years and $90 renewal for the Type 1 and $150 for the first three years and $200 renewal for a Type 7. Learn more about FFL Costs.

Why should I use RocketFFL?

This one’s easy.

RocketFFL is the best, and easiest to use, guide available and it is the ONLY service created by an actual firearms attorney!  Anybody can tell you what to do to apply for an FFL – heck, you can even get one on your own (see the FAQ above “How do I ge an FFL?”).  But, if you’re going to get help to make sure you do it the right way, why wouldn’t you get advice about what the law requires from an actual attorney?  Afterall, if you’e looking for medical advice, do you ask someone who’s been to a doctor, or do you ask the doctor?

RocketFFL uses a professional system to manage your enrollment in various guides and/or courses on firearm compliane.  This unique system breaks down the information into managable topics and has many videos to help you along the way.  And, once you’re up and running, you can train yourself and your employees in many firearms complaince topics.

Ryan Cleckner, the lawyer behind RocketFFL, is a true gun-guy with actual firearm industry experience who knows how to teach!

He knows guns.  Ryan’s a former special operations sniper (1/75 Ranger) with multiple combat deployments, he’s been a sniper expert on the History channel, he has numerous YouTube shooting videos with over 1 million views (one you’ve got to see to believe), and he’s a regular contributor to firearms magazines and blogs.

He has actual industry experience.  Ryan managed federal government relations for the firearm industry’s trade associateion (NSSF), he’s been a voting board member of the nation’s firearm/ammunition standards group (SAAMI), he’s was a Vice President in charge of firearm compliance for the largest firearms manufacturer in the country, he’s managed 24 FFLs at once, and he’s a full-time firearms attorney currently representing over 600 FFLs.

He knows how to teach.  Ryan is a professional educator, he’s the best-selling author of the Long Range Shooting Handbook, and most of his popular YouTube videos are due to his ability to break down seemingly complex topics in a way that anyone can understand.  Ryan was previsouly a sniper instructor and has taught for years at the college/university level. He currently teaches Consitutional Law courses for the Univeristy of Alabama in Huntsville.

Which type of FFL should I get?

It depends on what you want to do.  There are 9 types of FFLs which range from collecting only and dealing/gunsmithing up to manufacturing and importing. Learn more about FFL Types.

How much does RocketFFL cost?

RocketFFL offers two guides to get you up and running in the firearms industry: a guide to Get Your FFL and a guide to Become an SOT (class 3).  Together, these guides are $59.90.

These guides walk you through the entire process of becoming an FFL/SOT and they also give you the required background information, explain the basics of the laws, and give you practial real-world advice.  All of these things help to ensure that you make the right decisions and set you up for success.

RocketFFL also has course in firearms compliance.  These courses range from $9.95 to train your employees up to $49.95 to educate yourself in topics such as ATF Compliance, Export Compliance, and more!

Here’s the best way to break down the math.  Pay $59.90 to get your FFL the right way or do it yourself, or worse waste money on another service, and pay thousands later for my help as a firearms attorney to get you out of trouble.

Can I get an FFL at my home?

Yes – you don’t even need to own your home!  Our guides walk you through this entire process.  If your zoning allows for a business, you don’t live too close to a school,and there aren’t any other restrictions on businesses/firearms where you live (e.g. Home Owner’s Association, city laws, etc.)  then you can get an FFL out of your home!

Does having a home-based FFL give the ATF the right to come into my house whenever they want?

NO!  The ATF, by law, only has the right to inspect your licensed premises if they have a search warrant in connection with a crime or once every 12 months for a compliance inspection (as you’ll soon find out, it’s rare to have them show up more than once every 3 years).

Also, the ATF can only inspect the area you designate for your FFL.  So, if you run the FFL out of your garage and you never store your business’s firearms or records in your bedroom, then the ATF has no right to go in your bedroom during a compliance inspection.
