A recall inspection is not recommended because of the 430 ATF F 4473s reviewed, there were only a total of redacted forms with errors The instant inspection was also Licensee’s first compliance inspection. Mr. Kirby was knowledgeable about firearms laws and regulations, and receptive to new information. He expressed an appropriate level of concern over his mistakes and vowed to concentrate on improving his areas of weakness in future transactions.
This is the licensee's first inspection since beginning business in 2013. During this compliance inspection six (6) violations were cited including transferring a firearm to a purchaser that indicated on the ATF Form4473 that he was a prohibited person. Ultimately, the purchaser was determined not to be prohibited. Also, the licensee failed to submit redacted multiple handgun reports and failed to obtain any identification for redacted purchaser. Additionally redacted potential straw purchases were disclosed. In both cases the licensee was aware of the transactions and claimed to have “vetted” the redacted purchaser. Therefore, a warning letter and recall inspection are recommended in order to ensure future compliance.
