ok now that its legal to send a signed C&R via fax instead of mailing an original,and any copy of an original document is an original copy. why cant I scan a signed copy of mine into my computer as a jpeg or txet doc and then email it to whom ever I buy from ,they can down load and print the file copy and create a vritual file for rapid check for repeat business. Why isnt that as good as a fax or a mailed license.

while faxes are 'legal' in business, and will stand up in court under most situations, the BATF requires an actual signature in a conspicuous color that proves it to be original to that purchase, as much as its a PITA it makes perfect sense if you think about it a moment.

I thought you could, I've emailed mine to AIM and SOG w/o problem. J&G Sales will only accept an "original"

I asked my local agent about it. They consider both faxes & e-mailed versions "electronic" which they now consider legal forms as well as mailed originals. :D

Here is a link to the newsletter stating the same.

I have been emailing mine for a few months now and have had no problems from sellers. In fact they like to have a clearer emailed copy then the faxed.

Besides, these days, the fax and printer are often the same machine, so they print the emailed document and receive the faxed on on the same machine.
