The high percentage of errors in recording the certification and/or transfer date on ATF From 4473 and the failure to record accurate identification information on just over five percent of the forms viewed warrants a Warning Conference. All open dispositions in A&D Record were on the premises. In addition, his main source of income redacted. A small percentage of his business deals with the transfer of firearms. There was no willfulness disclosed. Licensee was careless in completing his portion of the forms because a majority of his customers are acquaintances.
