    I'm reading the February, 2019 magazine from Washington Arms Collectors (WAC), and they are indicating there might be an exemption based on the Federal Curio & Relic (C&R) license. The C&R license allows the license holder to transfer firearms older than 50 years and other specifically-listed firearms without using a dealer FFL.

    Per the WAC, some likely benefits of having your own C&R license:
    • The C&R license holder can purchase a C&R firearm without a NICS check.
    • C&R firearms are for your collection, enter them into your record book, but no registration at State or Federal levels.
    • The C&R license holder can purchase C&R-compatible semi-auto rifles and possibly avoid some of the legislation under I-1639. Do your research on this one though.

    The above is in no way legal advice, but one might want to explore it. One may apply at atf.gov to apply, perhaps a $30 fee.

    If we make a bunch of threads on this the antis who read it are going to close this lawful path to responsible, federally-licensed firearm ownership. Can we delete or lock this thread?

    If we locked threads of all the efforts to creatively navigate or avoid laws, we might as well close the section.
