|WILLIE TA: Thanks for your input. This is the exact point that I was attempting to make. Other than having a bit more information available on the 20 year old plus 4473 forms, I feel that the core information will always be in the BRB for BATFE to examine at any time that they choose. So why be overly concerned in the destruction of them? Just soliciting opinions, that is all.

|Joes Custom Guns: I don't think that a FFL dealer can destroy any BRB or its' contents can they? The 4473 forms may be destroyed after they are 20 tears old, but the BRB can not. It must either remain in the dealers possession or be sent to BATFE at the end of business for that dealler. Am I wrong here??

|Then this causes me to wonder why all of the concern in keeping the 20+ year old 4473 forms? I would think that BATFE has all the information that they deem important in the BRB. Maybe not all the info that is requested to complete an in depth trace, but enough indeed to establish some type of tracking system of firearms that are sold. Just curious, that's all.

|FFG/they refer to this as unfounded paranoia "at this time".Many(in the free states) buy a firearm,trade it,sell them,get bored with it,buy it from individuals,ect.It is near impossible to follow older firearms path from birth,a little easier from a crime scene back,that's even hard to do.Down the road may be a different story on new firearms,if everybody went by rules used by MA,CA,NJ,and the like,then they will be more traceable,but still will not be able to find most of the older ones previously owned.JMHO|

|(no avatar)||FR&G - the bound book only contains the buyers name - and the description of the firearms. Does not show the buyers address - it also shows the # assigned to the 4473 & date of the transaction.
The bound books does show the name and address of where the item came from - where we purchased it.
I started the original thread about 4473 retention in the 'gun talk' category.

|kats: The BRB that I keep has an areas for "Disposition Name" and "Disposition Address" listed. BATFE informed me that the address is to be included as well. I have done this since my first license was issued in 1987. Have I been told wrong here?
