Q: Sig has sold firearms to the Elkhart PD in Indiana as part of the department”s transition to a new firearm. This was handled through our client dealer. The firearms were drop shipped to the PD without excise tax, as is allowed from a GCA and IRC perspective. Client was due to acquire the firearms being replaced, however not all of the firearms were transferred to client. Officers were given the the option to purchase their firearms and many did. Instead of the department transferring all of the used firearms to client and the officers that wanted to purchase their firearm coming to client’s premises to acquire the firearms via ATF Form 4473 and a Brady check, the department let the officers keep the firearms and provide the department a money order made out to client for the firearm. The department now wants to provide client the checks for these firearms. Does this pose a problem from compliance with the GCA?
