Also, besides the 4473's, each FFL dealer must keep what is called a "bound book", named that because the pages can not be removed other than by ripping them out.
The bound book is a ledger that contains information on EACH gun that comes into his/her inventory: type, caliber, serial number, date of acquisition.
When a particular gun is sold, there is a spot on its line to put the date sold, and to whom.
This book is available for review at any time by the BATFE, and when the dealer goes out of business, the bound book is turned over to the government.

YUP, I didn't bother entering that because the posting was in reference to the 4473 form.

Stopped selling almost 30 years ago, just gun work now, mostly US military types.
All that data is then posted in their "track us" computer.
They were all over my ass on a sale of an SKS that was used a providence bank robbery.
Threatened to castrate me if i did not come up with the buyers name who was not from RI.
I pulled it up from my newly installed computer program and gave it to them.
That was a forward trace they were doing.
They have been here a few times to look at the machineguns I have.
Well, Slip, remember the old joke. A few shooters were yutzing one afternoon at a gunshop when someone mentioned the BATF.
