NASGW / Orchid Compliance Program

A cooperative program that combines firearm compliance services, education, technology and expertise to help your business optimize its Federal Firearms License.

In May of 2016, Orchid Advisors and NASGW launched a program for NASGW Wholesale and Associate members. That program included a number of benefits including access to the first of its kind, State Firearms Research Database, compliance guides, online video education and more.

Enrollment in the NASGW Compliance Program is at an all-time high with over 65% of NASGW members taking advantage of these offerings. For the coming year, we’ve established a new goal, to achieve 80% enrollment in this free benefit and have been busy at work to make that happen. NASGW Members will be provided, at no cost, the same benefits, plus more, and accessible in one common location through the portal. *Your member number is required at signup and all registrants will be validated with NASGW after enrollment.
