First: Click on the ATF website, www.ATF.gov
, and at the top of the page it says FORMS. It will open a page and on the LEFT side of that page it will offer you an opportunity to click on Firearms forms
Click that and scroll down and you will find: ATF F 5310.12 (Form 7) — Application for License (FFL)where you will order the paper forms to fill out and send in.
Order the FFL application package, if you are only interested in the C and R application /license, you will need to order that instead.
They are pretty speedy about getting them out, you should get them in a week or two if all goes well. The package will walk you through the process and will explain the application fee and directing you to make an appointment at your local Law Enforcement office to get fingerprinted on Fingerprint document cards which you will then send in WITH your application and your application check/fee.
And most of all, Good Luck and have fun if you do apply and get it!
