Cove Creek Outfitters, LLC was previously the subject of two DIO and one Area Supervisor warning conferences. This recall inspection disclosed significant improvements in all areas. While there is still room for improvement, this licensee has implemented the compliance plan worked out with the Director, Industry Operations during the last warning conference. Further improvements are expected as the licensee implements a computerized recordkeeping, inventory control, and electronic ATF Form 4473 system as was recommended by the DIO. While repeat violations are present, one must recognize the significant improvements made.

On this fourth Recall , firearms compliance investigation, five (5) repeat violations were found (i.e., redacted unrecorded disposition and redacted deficient Forms 4473 ), which due to the licensee’s compliance history (i.e., two DIO WCs in 2015 and 2014, an Area Supervisor WC in 2012 and a WL in 2010), by policy, subjects the license to revocation if the violations are willful . However, considering the negligible percentage error rate relative to the business volume, and no evidence of straw sales /trafficking, no unresolved traces or missing inventory, no dispositions to proh bited individuals, nor apparent threat to public safety, and in consideration of Division Counsel's opinion, a warning letter, no recall, in lieu of revocation is deemed sufficient action to address the violations.
If an inspection uncovers regulatory violations, the licensee receives a report outlining these violations. This section lists the violations found in the inspection, as well as a general description of each offense. More details on the nature of the licensee's specific violations may be found in the report PDF.
