What we could see is policy that dates back to the Clinton anti-web, anti-home rules. These rules tried to shut down stores with weekend hours, home dealers and collectors via State tax licenses and hours of operation. Most home FFL’s and private sellers have already figured the tax angle out. However, any seller, including stores with “variable hours of operation” (meaning no hours for the public, hours by appointment, or weekend only hours) MUST include gunsmithing. If a seller does not have a gunsmith credential, they could be denied, shut down during their next audit, or refused renewal if they are not open during full regular retail hours.
So I figure I could get a little better at something I already enjoy doing, gunsmithing, and be able to give myself a better chance in the future if something like this hits.
Plus it can give me the ability to buy tools, equipment, gun parts, accessories and everything else wholesale, without having to prove I have a brick and mortar store.
Thanks for the link, I’ll check it out and post my thoughts.
let us know how it goes, if it turns out pretty good I'll probably follow this avenue.I signed up for the online gunsmithing course through Penn Foster Career School. Cost is $798 everything is provided for the course including books, and sample parts to work on. They can't ship a complete weapon, but they will ship parts that pertain to the chapter(s) that you are currently studying. Seems pretty interesting and reasonable so I'm going to try it.

An online gunsmith course that teaches you to replace parts is one thing. But, if you really want to be a true GUNSMITH,learn from the best , apprentice,go to school, go to a school.
I am a shadetree smith that knows whats his limits are. If you want to be a real smith and be productive. Learn it right.!
Small arms repair good stuff, but don't expect to much. You know they only do up to level 30 maintenance? Which basically includes replacing bolts, parts and barrels as well as gauging and stoning out burs and whatnot. Pretty basic stuff, anything above that is at Depot level. I used to hang out at are DS repair shop, learned to take every company level weapon down to it's last pin and screw
Depot level maint at your unit? wow what kind of unit are you in?
Pimpness... bet you it didn't take long for them to throw him in the arms room when he came to the unit
