Why get an FFL03? 

We added this section for all of our customers and collectors in California. With the ever-changing laws, an FFL03 is a great way to be able to buy guns and ammo with less restrictions. Bottom line: You can buy as may guns as you want a month and have ammo shipped to your house, with two simple things. An FFL03 and a COE.

The whole process only takes about 30 days, Here is a step by step video guide we found online. 


#1 Type 03 FFL

Type 03 FFL is a Federal Firearm Licence type for Collectors of Curios and Relics.

#2 COE

A Certificate of Eligibility (COE) certifies the Department of Justice (DOJ) has checked its records and determined the recipient is not prohibited from acquiring or possessing firearms at the time the firearms eligibility criminal background check was performed.

What’s it good for? 

In addition to the ability to buy ammunition without involving a licenced vendor, people who possess Type 03 FFL and CA COE may also:
– Buy more than one gun in a 30 days period
– Ship ammunition obtained outside of California to you home
– Use COE instead of Firearms Safery Certificate
– Buy Curio & Relic long guns from CA residents in person, without going to a dealer
– Buy Curio & Relic firearms outside of California, and personally bring them to the state
– Skip 10 days wait for C&R firearms

What it’s NOT going to do. 

Now you can get machine guns and suppressors right? Wrong. 
– Does NOT allow any restricted or NFA items
– Does NOT allow the purchase of off-roster pistols
– Does NOT allow shipping of guns to your house
– Does NOT bypass the 10 day waiting period
– Does NOT get you Garand Thumbs’ flannel


– 03 FFL License costs $30 for 3 years; COE costs $22 per year; Live Scans run around $100.
