Mine expires at the end of this spring, and I'm letting it. Then, I'll reapply. The lapse won't interfere with any of my plans, and as soon as the license is officially expired, I can destroy my records. I'll start over with the new one.

very clever. How long do you need to wait until you reapply?

After seeing a couple of SKS's that I wanted, decided to get my C&R, mailed off the application Monday, they charged my credit card yesterday. Now the wait begins.
Reminds me of the anticipation of getting my CCW. :thumbsup:

Quick question. I am in the middle of Washoe Valley, so who would be the LEO I'd sent one of the forms to? My postal address is Carson City.
I figure you got the answer by now, but for future reference, if you were to call 911 from a land line in your house, who would come? If it is local city cops, then the Chief of Police for that agency. If it is a Deputy Sheriff , then the Sheriff.

Now that mine has expired it’s time to reapply.
This thread is long, and goes back a ways, but I checked the last few years. This doesn't seem to be one of the threads that tells the advantage of this. Unlike dealers' FFLs, the C&R FFLs do not need to maintain records after the license expires. So, letting a license expire first means all the records can be destroyed and you can start over.

additionally photos and fingerprint cards are not required, so reapplying new isn’t a pain in the ass.
