A field inspection performed 02/19-03/10/16; a ROV was issued for nine recordkeeping/reporting violations (one of which was a repeat violation), a single conduct of business violation and a single administrative violation. Revocation is specifically merited as a result of the licensee's discontinued maintenance of an A&D Record. Three of the additional violations merit a Warning Conference for (1.) repeated failure to timely/correctly record the acquisition and/or disposition redacted firearms (which includes the declared loss redacted unreconciled/missing firearms), (2.) failure to execute and/or retain an ATF form 4473 — redacted verified transactions, and (3.) failure to conduct a NICS background check redacted instances. The remaining violations merit either the issuance of a Warning Letter or ROV citation only.
