Q: This is in regards to the eBlast that went out with this question, ?When conducting a Private Party Transfer, does the firearm need to be entered into our A&D Record?? In California there is a 10 day wait minimum. The CA DOJ wants us to have all guns that are DROS?d (CA?s version of NICS) in our bound book. So we have to enter them into the bound book before NICS clears. Your memo directs dealers not to do this, but I am guessing CA dealers or ok with this practice since we have no choice. However, the eBlast also says, ?If the firearm is left on the FFL premises, it must be entered into the A&D Record and cannot be transferred back to the seller without a 4473 and NICS check.? In about one or two cases the gun had to be returned to the seller. The CA DOJ gave us specific authorization, with a special ?return number,? or whatever they call it. We returned the firearm directly to the seller without doing a 4473. It seemed no different than returning a gun for gunsmithing. So, assuming we did something wrong, how should we fix this? I am not sure how to figure out which transactions they were.
