So, you want to start a gun business but you don’t know where to begin. Your first step to being engaged in the business of firearms, whether selling, making, importing or exporting, is to get yourself an Federal Firearms License (FFL). Working with Rocket FFL, you could have everything you need to get your FFL in as little as 3 hours for $49.95.

I wanted to get an FFL for years. Being in the Army and moving around does not make that easy. When I finally got some stability and a business, it was time. The process is simple, I just watched a YouTube video where a guy with a beard says you just go to the ATF website and fill out the forms. The problems don’t come from the ATF. It gets complicated because of all the other steps.

It is completely possible to go on the ATF site and get the form to become an FFL. What you won’t learn from the ATF or internet forums, how to form a Limited Liability Corporation or get a business license. One example of bad advice I got was to start a company as a sole proprietor to make transfers easier if I had to dissolve the company.  It turns out this has unintended consequences and RocketFFL explains things so you can make good decisions for your situation.

If you are a business guy and you understand the difference between an LLC and a sole proprietorship and you know how to incorporate and get an EIN and business licenses, you may not need help. If you don’t know where to start, makes sure that you have all the information you need. What kind of company you form and how you form it will have big implications down the road. You must do your homework.

I used and I just got my FFL. I am a big do it myself guy, but there are things I don’t do myself: Plumbing, Electricity, Law. These things require a lot of training to be used safely, training that I don’t have. I don’t flood, shock or felony. The price of was covered in the first lesson when I learned that many of the things I learned from my buddies with FFLs was wrong. Things change constantly, many of these guys wouldn’t be able to get an FFL under current ATF practices.

My friend James has had an FFL and SOT for 15 years. I asked him how he got his FFL. He just got the forms from ATF and filled them out. He learned the business the hard way. When I asked what he thought about RocketFFL, he said he would have paid twice that much to avoid the problems he encountered learning on his own.

Before you start, you need to think through exactly what you want to do with an FFL and what your business will look like. If you don’t have a business, you can’t get an FFL. walks you through the process and makes sure you understand the whole process, not just the ATF part.

Once you send your money and application to ATF, you have an interview with ATF. They will ask for a whole stack of documents including your lease and a letter from your landlord. Taking the classes from, I knew what was coming, all the documents, questions and answers. is run and owned by former Ranger Ryan Cleckner, his credentials include being a gun lawyer, firearms industry professional, best selling author and a university professor. Rayn has had over twenty FFls and worked with hundreds of others to comply with ATF regulations. He knows where the sharks swim and helps you avoid them.

If you want to get your FFL and become an Special Occupational Taxpayer you can get both classes

There are many things you need to know before you start. At a cost of $47, you can learn enough to make informed decisions about your business and the class of FFL you need. This class proved invaluable in getting my FFL and the money and heart ache saved down the line is price less. I saved $500 from a single tip I got from the class, it will pay for itself many times over.

Course Curriculum

7 – Receipt of FFL

I have taken the course and successfully applied for my FFL. The process is straight forward, but there are many decisions which must be made about the structure of your business and the type FFL you need. This course is the easiest way to get the information you require in a easy to grasp video format. Ryan makes the complex legal jargon of the ATF comprehensible. As a former federal agent, I have seen what happens when people break laws and regulation. Avoiding fines and prison for $49.95 is a great deal.

I could not be more pleased with the product or results.
