The inspection warranted Violations, Warning Conference with Warning Letter and Recall Inspection . Due to the licensee’s volume in comparison to number of errors, as well as compliance history, an alternate recommendation is warranted.
The inspection disclosed violations, to include two violations warranting a warning conference and one violation warranting a warning letter. Specifically: Warning Conference * 27 CFR 478.125(e) for failure to correctly record the acquisition and/or disposition of a firearms in redacted instances; * 27 CFR 278.102(a) for failure to contact NICS or obtain a valid exception to NICS prior to transferring a firearm to a nonlicensee (not proh bited), on two forms. Warning Letter * 27 CFR 478.99(a) for the transfer of a long gun to an out-of-state resident in violation of said State's law, on redacted forms. However, an alternate recommendation of Violations Warning Letter Only and No Recall Inspection is being recommended. The alternate recommendation is proposed due to consideration being given to the licensee's high volume of sales in comparison to the percentage of errors identified, licensee's prior compliance history, and the corrective measures being taken by the licensee in regard to the A&D record software interface issue which resulted in errors.
Two violations cited during this inspection warrant a recommendation of warning conference. I concur with this recommendation.
