Recommend an alternate from IOIs recommendation of Warning Conference. Warning Conference was recommended due to licensee failing to report a theft or loss to both ATF and local law enforcement. Based on following, it is recommend a Warning Letter be issued and a recall inspection be conducted within three years of onsite end date: - On December 3, 2106, redacted won the firearm at a raffle and went to Mickler's premises to conduct the transfer. Mickler acted as the transfer agent for the auction and knew whom the customer was. - Upon receiving the delay response and redacted leaving the premises with the firearm prior to final disposition from NICS , Mickler attempted to contact the Perry County Sheriff but was informed they could not act without a stolen firearm report. - Upon disclosing the events, lOI redacted ran redacted and disclosed he appeared not to be denied and appears NICS denied redacted based on a different individual. IOI redacted followed up with GS redacted who was comfortable with the circumstances. -When IOI redacted contacted Stolen Firearms Branch, redacted advised that the incident did not fall under the parameters of a theft/loss and the form would not be accepted. Based on IOI redacted efforts, the licensee appears to understand, in the future to contact ATF and Local law enforcement for any thefts or losses of firearms. Based on Stolen Firearms Branch opinion that circumstances do not merit a theft or loss of firearms, a Warning Letter and Recall is recommended.
