The ATF revised the Form most recently in October and the new was required to be used starting on January 16, The ATF did send some new copies of the to FFLs but they arrived after the start-date requirement and in many cases, only 5 forms were received.
First, it required some heavy printing burdens for some FFLs. Six pages per transaction may not seem like a lot, but some FFLs complete hundreds of transactions per day. Second, using paper copies of the Form is not an ideal method. If the handwriting is not legible, it can be a problem during a criminal investigation or an ATF compliance inspection. Also, the new form had some changes that were confusing to some purchasers and FFLs.
One of the requirements of the new form said that the transaction MUST stop if a purchaser answered any of the boxes in question 12 incorrectly. For example, it was easy for the new question 12a to be missed completely because of the formatting of the new form. Second, it had some automated checks that warned the purchaser or the FFL that an answer was either missing or incorrect.
Despite the printing costs, it was still better to use the eForm for accuracy. On May 5, 15 weeks after the requirement to use the new form , the ATF finally updated their eForm software. Another thing we noticed a good thing is that it alerts FFLs to the possible need for a Multiple Handgun Sales Report and if there are multiple handguns on the current , it automatically opens up a pre-filled Report of Multiple Sale or Other Disposition of Pistols and Revolvers Form You should at least print out the Quick Reference Guide for buyers and keep it handy in case any of your customers have questions:.
