READY FOR REVIEW A Report of Violations ( ROV ) was issued and No Recall Inspection is recommended in lieu of a Warning Conference. A Warning Conference is warranted based on the failure to execute an ATF F 4473 in redacted instance. However, a report of violations and no recall inspection are recommended based on the following: - In redacted instance, where the Licensee was required to execute a new ATF F 4473, the Licensee added the sale of redacted onto an ATF F 4473 for redacted handguns that was completed on redacted. The Licensee did not realize that purchase permits could be used to transfer a combination of one handgun and several long guns. Instead, the Licensee, believing he was taking proper measures to avoid an illegal transfer, transferred only the redacted handguns with the redacted purchase permits on redacted and initiated a NICS check on the same date (for what he thought would be for the future transfer of the long guns) and asked the buyer to return after the NICS approval was granted on redacted The buyer returned on redacted at which time the Licensee added the redacted long guns to the form used to transfer the handguns. The Licensee, taking what he considered to be another precautionary measure, asked the buyer to recertify the prior ATF F 4473 which the buyer did, on redacted. Although the Licensee erred in not executing a new ATF F 4473, he took steps that demonstrated his willingness to ensure the buyer was not prohibited from receiving the firearms and with documenting the actions taken and relevant dates. Further, the Licensee’s recordkeeping on other ATF F 4473s and its A&D record book demonstrate the Licensee is making a significant effort to abide by ATF regulations. Finally, during the on-site inspection, Mr. Short allowed IOI redacted to explain to redacted and redacted this missteps taking during this transaction and how to avoid them, as they were unaware of the purchase permit coverage. Note: FLS needs to be updated with email address redacted, hours of operation on Sunday from 7:00a-12:00p, and cell phone number redacted for RP Eric Short.
License has been in business since 2011 and this was the first compliance inspection. As a result of the compliance inspection the following violations were issued: 27 CFR 478.124(c)(1) in redacted instances; 27 CFR 478.21(a) in redacted instances; 27 CFR 478.124(c)(3)(1) in redacted instances; 27 CFR 478.124(c)(3)(iv) in redacted instances; 27 CFR 478.125(e) in redacted instances; 27 CFR 478.102(a)(2)(ii) in redacted instance; 27 CFR 478.124(a) in redacted instance; and 27 CFR 478.102(a)(1) in redacted instance, for which the IOI request an alternate recommendation of ROV Only and No Recall Inspection . While at a minimum due to the violations of 27 CFR 478.21(a) in redacted instances, 27 CFR 478.124(a) in redacted instance, and 27 CFR 4678.102(a)(1) in redacted instance, could warranted an alternate recommendation of WL Only and No Recall, it is the A/S 's recommendation of WC and Recall to reiterate the importance to Forms 4473 completion and NICS requirements. Non-concur with IOI’s recommendation of ROV Only and No Recall. Final recommendation would be WC and Recall inspection.
Due to the licensee's limited compliance history and the nature of violations, the DIO recommends an alternate recommendation for a warning letter.
