CONDUCT FULL RECALL INSPECTION .
Field inspection performed 06/09-06/15/16; the licensee was issued a ROV for seven recordkeeping/repotting violations (five of which are reduced repeat violations) and a single (reduced repeat) administrative violation Although the licensee's failure to completely/correctly record all required acquisition and disposition information within their A&D Record merits a Warning Conference by policy, it is alternatively recommended that the licensee receive the Warning Letter and a Recall inspection for the following reasons (1.) the licensee immediately reconciled all identified A&D Record discrepancies; (2.) the A&D acquisition/disposition errors are 13% and 15% respectively and have been reduced (overall) by 60% since the last inspection; and (3.) the six remaining violations merit a Warning Letter or ROV only (two and four, in respective totals).
The licensee was subject to a recall inspection June 9, 2016 through June 15,2016 The licensee was cited for eight violations Specifically, the licensee was cited with violating 27 CFR 478.123(a) - Failure to record all required information on the manufacture or other acquisition of redacted firearms in the A&D Record and 27 CFR 478.123(d) - Failure to record the disposition of redacted firearm to a non-licensee in the Acquisition and Disposition (A&D) Record and failure to record all required disposition information of redacted firearms to a non-licensee in the A&D Record. The licensee was able to reconcile the redacted open disposition, therefore no firearms were reported missing The licensee was also able to correct all of the missing or incomplete information in the A&D Record These violations equate to an error rate of 13 percent of acquisitions and over 15 percent of dispositions. The licensee was cited for violating both of these regulations during the previous inspection in February 2015 and September 2013. That inspection resulted in a DIO led Warning Conference in lieu of Revocation I concur with the Area Supervisor's alternate recommendation of Warning Letter and Recall inspection for the following reasons (1) the licensee immediately reconciled all identified A&D Record discrepancies; (2.) the A&D acquisition/disposition errors have been reduced (overall) by 60% since the last inspection; and (3.) the six remaining violations merit a Warning Letter.
