    1. The software that Epicore and Orchid Advisors demonstrated was very nice. It was part bound book, and part self-audit and reporting. Basically, you have a streamlined bound book entry for Federal Firearms License holders and can check your compliance status at any time. On top of this, when the ATF comes knocking for an audit, you press one button, hand them the output, and send them on their way. The less time Ihave to deal with the ATF the better! Once they find something just one time, you can bet they’ll come calling every year. We’re getting this the minute it is available for sale. Our last audit took seven hours. I’m hoping this will get us down to a matter of minutes. Following the rules is required anyway, this is about keeping the ATF out of my shop I’m all for that.

    2. It wiil work some of the time, but it will not stop the criminals that break into homes and busineses from getting firearms. The majority of illegal guns are stolen from law abiding citizens.

    3. I suppose this is good. At least it will keep Anti Gun Organizations quiet for a minute, At least until some gang banger, felon, drive by shooter or mental case runs havoc again! When will they learn, bad guys don’t do background checks EVER!
