The licensee was cited for five (5) separate violations, all of which were Repeat Violations. However, all of the violations cited represented instance of each citation, and represent improvements from the previous two (2) inspections (0.4% of total forms reviewed and/or A&D Entries). As a result of the licensee's improvements in the area there were cited violations, it is recommended he receive a Warning Letter ONLY - No Recall Inspection . In addition, it is recommended the FFLC remove the SAF for "Warning Conference Held".
The licensee failed to record the acquisition of redacted firearm and failed to report the multiple sale of handguns in redacted instance. Both are repeat violations of the 2015 and 2013 compliance inspections. A total of five violations were cited, each with redacted instance. Of the five violations, 4 were repeat violations of the 2015 and 2013 inspections and one was a repeat of the 2015 inspection. As a result of the 2015 inspection, the licensee was cited for 11 violations and received a WL . As a result of the 2013 inspection, the licensee was cited for 8 violations and attended a WC . The qualification inspection was conducted in March 2011. During the inspection period, the licensee acquired redacted firearms, disposed of redacted firearms, completed redacted traces of firearms. There were 268 forms on file and redacted firearms in inventory.
Due to the licensee's improvement from the previous two inspections, I concur with the IOI and Area Supervisor's alternate recommendation of Warning Letter and no recall inspection .
