    Maybe this was covered, but how does I594 affect sending a pistol in for repair and then, them sending it back to you??

    A co working was asking.

    officially, you are breaking the law (as is the delivery driver). In reality, nothing.

    Applicable text of the initiative;

    (4) This section does not apply to:
    (e) A federally licensed gunsmith who receives a firearm solely for the purposes of service or repair, or the return of the firearm to its owner by the federally licensed gunsmith;

    Anything outside those parameters? Felony.:eek:
    No logic. No thinking. No understanding. No grey cells left.:mad:
    Don't get me started......;):p:)

    technically, yes, if you consider them posessing a package with a firearm in it a "transfer". no prosecutions yet to my knowledge.

    Where exactly does a person apply for Federal Gunsmith License?

    It's a FFL.

    I can see how you would make that assumption, but that isn't how it's worded! It says "Federally Licensed Gunsmith." This implies that someone who works on weapons must be licensed by the Federal Government as a gunsmith.

    good point. Not sure I noticed that before.

    I guess FEDEX and UPS need to get that gunsmith license that does not exist.

    Maybe Wa folks can only have FFLs who are also gunsmiths work on their rigs because someone in another thread made the comment that the authors knew exactly what they were writing.

    I don't feel inclined to offer such high praise.

    I wonder if "federally licensed gunsmith" is in the same place as "Government approved range"....in a deluded liberal's utopia....:rolleyes:o_O:)
    Oh dear, I'm getting started...:confused:

    Pretty sure there are several different types of FFL that you can file for including dealer, manufacturer and gunsmith only. I think there are 7 classifications. The gunsmith FFL allows guns to be shipped to you to be worked on.
