Firearm Dealers

As a Type 01 or 02 Federal Firearms Licensee, your primary concern is running your business, pursuing your hobby and being able to sleep at night without worrying about compliance.

But today’s regulatory environment is getting complex. While Federal Firearms Regulations remain relatively constant, State Firearms Regulations seem to change every few months. Combine that with the complexity of managing ATF Form 4473, NICS Inquiries, Multiple Sales Forms, avoiding Straw Purchases and making sure you record properly in your paper or electronic Bound Book (or A&D Book).

Orchid Advisors’ suite of electronic Acquisition & Disposition tools, firearms and ATF compliance training and dealer inspection services — created specifically with the retailer/dealer/pawn shop in mind— helps you minimize ATF violations before they happen, saving you less hassle down the road while making your business run more efficiently.

Do you face these challenges?

Our large firearm retailers (FFL Type 01 and 08 / 11 for those who import) often ask Orchid questions such as:

  1. How do I track the changing state regulations, embed them into our ERP and POS for real-time compliance?
  2. We’ve built our own electronic A&D book but it just doesn’t integrate well with our other systems. Can you help identify technology that will reduce our ATF risk?
  3. We have over 1,000 employees across 400 stores who transact firearms, completing 4473s, multiple sales forms and more. Do you offer online education to keep them persistently aware of the rules?
  4. What do our competitors do that we don’t and are we prepared for an ATF inspection?
  5. The industry demand for Silencers / Suppressors is significant and we want to take part. Can you help us understand the impact to our business and compliance needs?
