NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the trade association for the firearms industry, is pleased to announce that it has appointed Bob Berthold to its team of NSSF Compliance Consultant experts.
Berthold began his career in the U.S. Air Force, retiring as an officer in 1993. He joined the California Department of Justice in Sacramento in 1994, serving in several capacities, including work as a Criminal Intelligence Specialist in the Violent Crimes Unit. In 2005, Berthold was promoted to Field Representative/Inspector with the California Department of Justice Firearms Unit. His duties included inspecting firearm dealers for compliance with state firearm laws and assisting the Department of Justice Firearm Enforcement section in investigating criminal activities relating to firearms. He trained and educated California law enforcement agencies on firearm laws and illegal firearms, and he served as the trainer for new inspectors.
“We are very pleased to include Bob Berthold as our newest Compliance Consultant Team member,” said Patrick Shay, NSSF Director, Retail Development. “His breadth and depth of experience with firearms compliance in a state that has some of the most challenging regulations that FFLs must work with will be invaluable to any firearms retailer.”
“As confusing and overwhelming as the California firearms laws and the DROS process can be, I can offer an informative, relaxed, supportive atmosphere and confidential inspection as a retired government inspector,” said Berthold. “I am also a firearms collector, a handgun instructor and an avid shooter. I know firearms.”
