    Welcome to the Soviet Socialist States of America. Just another big bureaucracy where you have rights, only until someone arbitrarily decides you don't.

    Just, FYI, I tend to keep my firearm purchases down to 1-3 per year. I think though, if you got a C&R FFL (Curio and Relic) you'd not run into that problem. Even if the firearms you purchased were not C&R eligible.

    In the mean time, check on the pro-gun websites, see if you can find a lawyer who might advise you what you can or can't do.

    I live in Delaware as well. My wife just submitted her application for CCW. Have you tried this site:

    Delaware Concealed Carry Forum - Index

    They can offer good advice on the process and give some tips that might help you with a better outcome.

    This is going to seem like a bass-ackwards proposition, but can you buy property in SC? If you are a property owner in SC, you can get a SC non-resident carry permit which is valid in DE.

    I wish DE would adapt shall-issue carry. But for now, I am trying to sugest any option I can.

    I do believe that a DE resident must have a DE license...

    (j) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Code to the contrary, the State of Delaware shall give full faith and credit and shall otherwise honor and give full force and effect to all licenses/permits issued to the citizens of other states where those issuing states also give full faith and credit and otherwise honor the licenses issued by the State of Delaware pursuant to this section and where those licenses/permits are issued by authority pursuant to state law and which afford a reasonably similar degree of protection as is provided by licensure in Delaware. For the purpose of this subsection "reasonably similar" does not preclude alternative or differing provisions nor a different source and process by which eligibility is determined. Notwithstanding the forgoing, if there is evidence of a pattern of issuing licenses/permits to convicted felons in another state, the Attorney General shall not include that state under the exception contained in this subsection even if the law of that state is determined to be "reasonably similar." The Attorney General shall communicate the provisions of this section to the Attorneys General of the several states and shall determine those states whose licensing/permit systems qualify for recognition under this section. The Attorney General shall publish on January 15th of each year a list of all States which have qualified for reciprocity under this subsection. Such list shall be valid for one year and any removal of a State from the list shall not occur without 1 year's notice of such impending removal. Such list shall be made readily available to all State and local law-enforcement agencies within the State as well as to all then-current holders of licenses issued by the State of Delaware pursuant to this Section.
