Q: "DO I NEED TO HAVE AN FFL IN ORDER TO BE A GUNSMITH? I'M IN SCHOOL TO BECOME A GUNSMITH RIGHT NOW, BUT AM NOT SURE IF I NEED THE FFL TOO..."
A: Private Gunsmiths offering services only to private gun owners fall under varying STATE laws. Although you need to keep a bound book in many states just like an FFL, to log repairs in and out, you don't HAVE to have an FFL to be a Gunsmith for strictly PRIVATE work. BUT... if you intend to sell even a few of your own guns, or work on lowers, create new models, buy wholesale, buy and sell etc, you MUST have one. If you call ATF national, they will answer "YES" to this question every time. But case law is not that clear.
First, there are over 100,000 professional gunsmiths and probably nearly 500,000 amateurs or part timers. Less than 10% of these have FFLs, and ATF doesn't run around looking for them unless you are an egregious gun act violator-- basically selling guns without a license. Selling collections at gun shows to in-state residents only is another gray area. There are many other exceptions, such as working for another FFL, being a police armorer, working part time or as a hobby, etc. In fact, ATF won't approve your gunsmith FFL application unless you have a "profit motive" -- not just a desire to collect or help friends.
But that's not the point! An FFL opens the door for every gunsmith to first become a seller, to buy wholesale, to open accounts at the gunsmith supply houses, to collect rather than pay transfer fees, to buy lowers directly, then even become a custom manufacturer. It opens doors you just can't imagine without it!

Others don't even respond to a single question-- we coach you through the entire start-up process becase WE WIN TOO as the only distributor offering an FFL kit-- when you join our network at no additional cost!

We immediately give you trade references at Numrich, Brownell's and many other of the top Gunsmith Supply houses to help get you started.
"I couldn't believe it, but 6 months into my new gunsmith shop, ETI referred me a huge contract from Smith Tactical. This is WAY beyond just getting your license, ETI sticks with you in a long term relationship."
"I was repairing guns and making a few hundred bucks extra a week, while working full time as a carpenter. ETI argued with me for dozens of emails and phone calls, and convinced me to get my FFL, after I gave them a hard time you wouldn't believe. After only two years, I'm making a unique type of pistol, and am a very satisfied ETI customer, which is the understatement of the year. I made over $400,000 with over two million in sales last year, am now full time, and I can barely keep up with the growth. ETI laid out every step I needed to take: in three words, IT REALLY WORKS! I'm proud to say I'm a Gunsmith, an FFL, and a value-added member of the ETI network..."
