Default Another second-hand dealer question

I know that we have to report the acquisition of used firearms to DOJ and our local LE when a customer brings us something. What if we acquire a used firearm from another FFL?

Not to my knowledge since you would never be getting the seller to sign the FDAS paperwork.

The secondhand dealer only applies to a FFL buying a firearm (or consignment) for inventory from a private party. It does not apply when the firearm comes from another FFL, nor does it apply to firearms that are being transferred (otherwise all used firearms would be a 30 day wait and the FFL would have to have the secondhand dealer permit).

Excellent, thank you all.
Sometimes, this stuff can be soooo dang confusing. Got to keep on top of it.
