ATF harassment

Location:

5 posts in this topic

I have people say to me often "I'd never own a full auto machine gun, the atf is always coming to your house and checking up on you and searching your house and blah,blah, blah....."

I can't imagine this to be true as I've never heard of full auto owner's complaining nor have I experienced   atf harassment but thought I'd ask other full auto owners.

 

Thoughts??

way back in the late 70’s .... I was class 3 for three Years .... yearly visited by Houston ATF agents ....

dropped my class 3 in 1979 .... FFL kept till 1988 ..... after dropping my class 3 ..... they never visited again.

they were always nice during each visit .... and called ahead.

I bought my Sten in 1994. Got my first can in 2013. The only time I have ever seen an ATF agent was when one was checking paperwork at a LGS, probably 20 years ago. And that was for regular guns, not C3.

I always heard from a FFL 07 that when he was a FFL 01, they maybe stopped by once a year.  Then he switched to a FFL 07 and he got yearly visits.

I haven't had a visit yet.. but was suppose to get one just as the COVID 19 hit.. so it got cancelled.  She was very pleasant to talk to over the phone.
