There's a lot of info out there on the subject.
ETA; also, lots of records that you must keep on hand.

beefcake, i know they still issue FFLs to people who run the business out of their home if their county or municipality allows it.. But i think a type 7 and type 10 are different.. and thats why im posting it in the NFA section. Someone on here has most likely done it, or has tried..

I'm an 07/02. I have a shop behind my house that I work from.
I formed an LLC, and then got a state tax permit. When I got the visit from my IOI, there were no problems at all.
I live outside of any city limits, so business licenses or zoning laws or any of the other crap that comes from living in a city was not an issue.
I would say that to make things easier for both you and the IOI, if you formed an LLC and did what ever else you had to do, you could get the 07 with no problems.

Meaning, YOU have to know the laws in advance, that cover your operations, in the event they don't.
Sound silly, the last inspection I had, the agent wanted to know how I sold firearms over the internet.
I was speechless, I asked her if she ever heard of sites like auction arms or gun broker, she claimed to not know about them, so I actually had to open a browser, and show here where all these "people" bought and sold guns using the internet.
I think she was trying to force an issue about actually "Being in the business of buying and selling firearms" which was a clause used to get rid of a bunch of regular FFL's during the Clinton years.
While nowhere can you find a fixed number of firearms that must be sold, bought, or traded per year, the ATF drew arbitrary guidelines, and refused renewals based upon low volume.
And, then went after a whole bunch of ex dealers, and non dealers for conducting business without a license using the same logic in reverse.
You gotta know the questions in advance, to stop the process from being derailed at the lowest levels, IE, the onsite inspection, if they bump question up to their superiors, its only going to mean delays, and a chance for some other beaureaucrat to deny you a legal right to pursue a business.
"Anyway, thats my view, and it just happens to be correct.."

The state of florida also has a law that a business can not be denied on the fact that there will be firearm sales... SO... if the old lady nextdoor to me can sell makeup and tupperware then i should be allowed to sell firearms.
Surprisingly the ATF portion is not the issue, its the local assholes..
As soon as i get the go ahead from the locals (in writing) i will form my LLC and get my EIN. I know of a local FFL, he got permission from the county since he claimed to be a "wholesaler" and wouldn't have customers coming to his house. I may go that route if all else fails

Tomorrow i apply for my LLC, then i can establish my EIN, and home occupational license. After that i can apply for my FFL lol
The home occupation license and building tax receipt have portions for Zoning sign-off, that states that what you are doing is an allowed use in that zoning district, so it should suffice for ATF.
wish me luck
