The licensee conducted PICS Background Checks and completed the ATF F 4473 for all unlicensed purchasers. 6.) redacted traces. However, the licensee was the subject of redacted traces during the twelve (12) month inspection period which is cause for concern and warrants a Recall Inspection to determine if the Compliance Inspection raised awareness to detection of straw sales and firearms trafficking in general. Of note, the RPs made the immediate decision to cease selling Hi-Point Pistols, one of their most traced firearms. 7.) Internal policies & SOPs in place. The licensee appears to have internal policies and SOPs in place (i.e. use of a tag system, computerized back-up A&D Records, secondary reviews of ATF Form 4473s, copies of I D. documents, etc.). However, errors and omissions continue to occur which would seem to indicate a lack of attention to details by the licensee. A Recall Inspection is needed to ensure that the licensee is strictly adhering to their internal policies and SOPs and have significantly reduced, or elimated altogether, errors and omissions, specifically those related to ATF Form 4473 completion. The Narrative Report and all supporting documentation will be forwarded to the DIO for secondary review and final recommendation.
