Q: We are planning on getting into custom holster making at one of our stores. As this is a new area of business for us we want to ensure we are performing the correct tasks to remain compliant with the regulations. It may be required that the customer leaves their firearm at the store location for longer than a business day if we do not have a pre-made form on hand and instead have to use their actual firearm to obtain a form. In such an instance, we will log the firearm into our repair A&D book from the customer, create the holster, and at a later date disposition the same firearm out to the same customer that brought it in. Is this correct? Also, as it is being treated as a repair firearm this should forego the requirement of filling out a 4473. Are we correct in this as well? A further issue exists in that the store exists close to the West Virginia state line. While we could take in a handgun from anyone out of state, we would not be able to return it to them without sending it to an FFL in their state of residence so they can legally take possession of it. Are we correct in this as well? Is there anything we are not currently considering but should be? Is there any other advice you can give us for a ?best practice??
