A C&R (curio and relics) Federal Firearms License (FFL03) will let you purchase eligible firearms straight from dealers without paying an intermediate transfer fee - for the price of the license ($30 for 3 years), it will pay for itself quickly in savings from transfer fees per firearm, and you get discounts from online retailers if you email them a copy of your FFL03.
Many C&R eligible firearms are imported from European countries' surplus, including military and police surplus firearms. Or, they're older (50 years+) firearms that are still perfectly suitable for self defense. You can purchase some battle proven firearms this way, and usually cheaply....

PistolPete wrote:I'd suggest another disadvantage for going the C&R work is the cost of the license itself and the paperwork you have to keep with it. It makes a lot of sense if you plan to buy a number of historic firearms, but if you are just going to buy one or two cheap handguns the cost benefit isn't really there. Distributors sell CZ-82's for $200, then you add in shipping. Local shops often carry them for $225 to $250. Since shipping can run $20 you are only saving a couple bucks plus tax, and your license needs renewed every 3 years at a cost of $30. So unless you plan on buying a gun a year I don't think the economics work out as a cost saver.
