Hi,
Im in the process of applying for my C&R, and was wondering if there is anything special or different I need to do in regards to my currently owned firearms, once I receive
my C&R ?
Thanks
You need to have them inspected and proof-fired by a senior C&R licensee. [wink]

Just finished filling out the application. If I intend on keeping some of the firearms purchased with my C&R out of state at another house, do I need to disclose that on the app? I am not the homeowner of the other location, but the only person with access to the safe.

Don't lie on the form, if it asks about that then yes.

Refresh my memory about an address change? I have 30 days to notify ATF about my new address? I have my packet somewhere and I just moved and haven't dug it out yet.

Notification is required no less than 30 days prior...

27 CFR 478.52 said:
(a) Licensees may during the term of their current license remove their business or activity to a new location at which they intend regularly to carry on such business or activity by filing an Application for an Amended Federal Firearms License, ATF Form 5300.38, in duplicate, not less than 30 days prior to such removal with the Chief, Federal Firearms Licensing Center.

With C&R purchases you must update the bound log book and register online correct?
I am a brand new C&R holder obviously but as I understand it, I must now log in a bound book any acquisitions or dispositions that occur while license is in effect. If a MA resident you must also fill out the eFA-10 as well.

Others feel free to chime in if you see something I stated in error.

Correct. One is a Federal requirement the other is a State requirement. They have nothing to do with one another so you must do both.

What's the process for changing your address? There's a ton of conflicting information online so I called the Boston ATF office, got transferred, and hit the voicemail of a random Maine number that I didn't feel comfortable leaving a message with personal info for.

I think that instructions came with it, but you need to send the original back with either a letter or form (I forget which, sorry) notifying of the address change. They will re-issue with the new address, but you are forbidden from using it during this transition time.

It's been a long time since I've used this number but call BATFE directly at (866) 662-2750 and ask the exact procedure.
