At Least One Sector Of The Economy Is Booming

Below is a memo that was sent to all FFL's about the lack of 4473 forms. For the uninitiated, this is the form everyone must fill out when buying a gun.

Notice to All Federal Firearms Licensees Regarding ATF Form 4473 Shortage

As a result of an unprecedented increase in demand for ATF Forms 4473 (5300.9) Part I Revised August 2008, inventory of the form at the ATF Distribution Center is running low.

As a temporary measure, ATF is allowing FFLs to photocopy the form 4473 in it’s entirety until they receive their orders from the ATF Distribution Center. A notice will be posted at the expiration of this temporary authorized change.
