Benton Shooters Supply LLC 1-62-139-01-6K-03253 redacted 2/1/16 I concur with the findings of this investigation. This FFL had a previous W/C under a previously held FFL, in 2007. Although this investigation disclosed violations that would warrant a W/C, based on number of Multiple Handgun Sale Forms not submitted. However, the number or violations disclosed are signifiantly fewer than those disclosed in 2007. I recommend a W/L based on the above information and that the FFL has put in place procedures to prevent future violations.
The DIO concurs with the recommendation of Warning Letter in Lieu of Warning Conference due to the fact that the number of instances in the one violation that warrants a warning conference was significantly lower than the previous inspection and the licensee has put additional internal controls into place to prevent thisd violations from recurring.
