A Report of Violations was issued and recommendation of Warning Letter Only and No Recall Inspection is recommended in lieu of a Warning Conference with Warning Letter and Recall Inspection. Current inspection results disclosed four violations and based on these violations, a Warning Conference with Warning Letter and Recall Inspection is warranted. However, a Warning Letter Only and No Recall Inspection is recommended due to the following: 1. The high error rate for ATF F 4473 's is inflated due to a low tally of forms and high number of errors. There were only three forms were on file for the inspection period, redacted of which had a certification error that resulted in the exaggerated error rate of 33% 2. There is no appearance of willful disregard for ATF regulations. Further, Mr. Byrd appeared to have taken steps toward determining how to lawfully conduct transfers. Mr. Byrd stated that he called the Wilmington FO to find out how to transfer a receiver to an out-of-state resident who was the brother of Mr. Cook, owner of Bulk Fasteners where Mr. Byrd operates his firearms business. Upon further questioning by IOI redacted Mr. Byrd acknowledged that he may not have fully understood the ATF officer's response and/or did not fully explain the details of the proposed out-of-state transaction. IOI redacted spoke with Mr. Cook (in person at the licensee’s closing on 1-31-2017) who explained that he was present when Mr. Byrd contacted ATF, but Mr. Cook acknowledged that he was unable to hear the response by the ATF officer. Note: FLS needs to be updated by adding “North” to the street address and “Suite # 150”.
DIO concurs with the alternate recommendation for a warning letter in lieu of a warning conference.
