Do You Make, Buy or Sell Suppressors? Make Plans To Attend

St. Paul, Minnesota –-( If you make, buy or sell suppressors, or any NFA firearms for that matter, then this session is for you.

To be held during the FICC’s pre-conference sessions on Wednesday, May 16, ATF Division Chief Alphonso Hughes and executives from Orchid Advisors will deliver a two-and-a-half-hour session focused on NFA Record Keeping and Forms – everything you need to know from A to Z. This course is designed for all FFL / SOT types and sizes, from start-ups to large industry members.

This unique environment provides a personal learning experience where industry members can interact and ask questions directly to ATF leadership.

Topics included in this year’s NFA Pre-conference session include:

  • Identifying and understanding the construct of NFA weapons
  • How to complete and file pertinent NFA Forms such as Form 2, 3, 4, 5 and 9
  • Understanding when during the manufacturing process the Form 2 becomes relevant
  • Gaining a clear understanding of NFA Form 3 and 4 filing processes and wait times
  • Getting current on the world of Suppressors and the Hearing Protection Act

Over 20 Other Learning Opportunities

Amongst the other twenty-plus learning courses are courses designed for retail, distribution, manufacturing and import / export entities. For example, three of the courses will be focused on Electronic Bound Book technology, including “Integrating electronic Bound Books, e4473, NFA eForms with Retail POS systems” to be held on the afternoon of May 17.
