Q: We have a customer scenario that is very similar to one of the examples in your library (E-Blast 01.08.2016) but with an additional element. The customer has a home in Ohio, vehicles registered in Ohio, pays taxes in Ohio and an Ohio DL. He is a Special Agent in the OSI for the Navy and is stationed in Maryland. He turned in his older duty pistol and was issued a credit to buy a new one from a short list of alternates. We are an LE dealer for many manufacturers and have the one he wants. We have declined the sale because you have advised that a military person is solely a resident of their duty station. The customer knows agents in the ATF and has relayed their position that the duty station residence is inclusive, not exclusive, ie they have dual residency. He has offered to have our local agent come to our store and confirm that policy, in writing if needed. Should we take him up on that, and if true, proceed with the sale?
