ATF Q&A: Operations


I've reported a lost firearm. I've done all the necessary paperwork and notifications. Now, I've found the firearm. What is my course of action?

FFLs who report a firearm as missing and later discover its whereabouts should advise the ATF, as well as their local law enforcement agency, that the firearms have been located. The ATF can be contacted at 888-930-9275. In addition, once the firearms are located, they must be re-entered into the Acquisition and Disposition (A&D) record as an acquisition entry.
