On February 21, 2017, Industry Operations Investigator ( IOI ) redacted of the Riverside Field Office, initiated an un-announced Full Scope, Firearms Compliance Inspection with an emphasis on the Southwest Border Initiative, at the licensed business premises of Mr. Rogelio Valdez, dba Coachella Valley Guns & Tackle.

Although these are all repeat violations, an Alternate Recommendation of Warning Letter in Lieu of Warning Conference is being recommended by IOI redacted. The licensee was able to show a definite increase in compliance since the previous inspection which was conducted by IOI redacted in April of 2015. Although there were repeat violations found, the error rate was minimal and all A & D errors found during redacted inspection were immediately corrected and verified by redacted. Mr. Valdez and his Store Manager are eager to follow ATF regulations and he stated that he has implemented a full inventory once every three months and also requires his store manager redacted to triple check each ATF Form 4473 prior to filing. No trafficking issues relating to the acquisition and disposition of firearms were discovered and no firearms with obliterated serial numbers and/or illegal firearms were found during this inspection.
