Alternate Recommendation : violations stemmed from the licensee’s misunderstanding of 27 CFR 478.125a, Personal Firearms Collection. Regarding the failure to complete an ATF Form 4473 and NICS check redacted instance, the licensee had the firearm in his personal collection since before having a federal firearms license; the transferee was not prohibited and was familiar to the licensee through previous transactions in which a NICS check was conducted.
Recommendation: Violations, WL ONLY, and No Recall Inspection . This is an Alternate Recommendation from a Warning Conference: due to the main violations stemmed from the licencees misunderstanding of 27 CFR 478.125a, Personal Firearms Collection. Regarding the failure to complete an ATF Form 4473 and NICS check redacted instance, the licensee had the firearm in his personal collection since before having a federal firearms license; the transferee was not prohibited and was familiar to the licensee through previous transactions in which a NICS check was conducted. Also the prior inspection results were no violations.
Although Warning Conference could be considered a Warning Letter is sufficient. A Warning Letter is warranted based on an inspection history with no violations, and the circumstances of the violations, specifically that the violations surrounded the FFLs misunderstanding of the handling of his personal firearms collection.
If an inspection uncovers regulatory violations, the licensee receives a report outlining these violations.
