OK, I have an appointment for a inspection/interview for my FFL on Monday. I need to know what to expect. What are they going to look for? Besides a safe, what else would I need? I'm applying for my occupancy tomorrow, that should be just a formality. Not overly concerned, just curious. Brian
Well the interview was today, and went pretty well, I believe. I changed calling it an interview because that was all it was. There was no inspection at all. We sat at the dining room table the entire time. She was asking a few questions, mainly about how I was going to run the business, and how many guns I expected to sell/transfer.I explained that it was going to be a true "kitchen table" dealership, with most sales generated on the internet or as special order items. I would have little, if any stock on hand, and that seemed OK w/her. She was more interested in making sure that I waas informed and understood the basics of filling out form 4473. What happens and my responsibiliies as far as filling out my part and calling NICS, and what to do in case of a deny or delay.She asked about my safes, but didn't attempt to inspect them. Only noted number on forms. She did mention marking my personal guns, but only so that the inspector could readily identify them, so they would not be counted. She suggested tying a small piece of pink yarn to the personal guns.Like I said, her main goal was more informative than inquisitive. She appeared more concerned that my local jurisdiction was going to allow this than that the ATF would. At the end, I asked her if anything that was said stood out as something that would fail me, and said no. But she did say that it would be out of her hands when she sent it to the supervisor. I didn't really know how to take that.She said that the license would be issued 30-45 days after they make their decision. But said nothing about an appeal process. I'm taking that as a good sign. BrianP.S. I almost forgot, she gave me a bunch of posters and such, but said they were not required to be posted in a "home". Only a place of business. I need to hand out the different brochures, but not post the paraphanalia (sp?). B.
