Default Acquisition and Dispostion Log Book Help

Finally got my C&R approved by the BATFE and ready to start using it but I have a question about the Log book. Do I have to purchase a 'Firearms Acquisition and Dispostion Log Book' or can I down load a form, print it and make my own? If I can make my own, does anybody have a link to where I can find the info.? Any help here would be a great help.

You can BUY a logbook (Brownell's) you can go to Welcome to Cruffler.com! (about halfway down the page, rt side) and make up our own, you MAY use computer software (batf is kinda specific about that) or do what I did- went to Dollar General, for $1.00 I bought a journal with BOUND (stitched in) pages.

Number the pages in an upper corner. Label one section ACQUISTIONS, the other DISPOSITIONS. Use a pen and a ruler, draw in the lines and columns for info needed. When I get a cc of a FFL with a purchase, after logging them in, I put the copy in an envelope taped inside the back cover. Make entries in ink.

Couple of points- if you already know, please excuse the lecture. When you get your license, DO NOT SIGN IT. Make a number of copies of the unsigned license. You will sign those as you use them. Original stays unsigned. Send copies to wholesalers you may want to do business with- Would suggest J&G Sales, Numrich (for parts) Midway, Aim, Southern Ohio Gun, etc. Most will give you a discount on NON-firearm stuff as well. Keep a copy in your wallet for those unforeseen opportunities.

DO maintain a separate inventory of all arms, both what you already have, modern guns you buy, and your 03 acquisitions. I keep mine on computer, along with photos, periodically burn a copy to CD, which stays at daughter's house. Odds against losing her house AND mine at same time very slim.

Congratulations and welcome- My O3 is the most fun I can have for $30 anymore!

Thanks for the info. It was what I was looking for and as for the lecture. I already heard it and made 20 copies as soon as I got it, but someone else reading this may not know that and would be in a panic if they signed their original. I will be visiting my mom in Prescot after Easter, so I will hand deliver a copy to J&G, seeing there ads was the reason I applied for the C&R in the first place. Again thanks for taking the time to answer my questions.

It's all in the current rule book you should have gotten with your 03. There is a page that shows the column headings you would need for a log book. If you know how to use Excel then you are pretty much done.

Better call em up and ask for one. They have them on CD now to make it easier. They tend to frown on not having one. I went through an ATFE inspection a month ago and they made sure I had a copy on hand.

They've been known to come in separate mailings. Mine did. I also just made up my own bound book with all the pertinent information. No need to pay someone for doing it when it's legal to make up your own.

You can print your own and have them bound at Kinkos.
The ones at Brownells are great and only $3.

I use the ones from brownells for my FFL business.

For an 03 an excel sheet you make yourself and a 3-ring binder is all that is needed. The ATF didn't have a problem with this when they inspected me a few months ago.

Default Gun Log Book

Many shops get their books from BookFactory in Ohio. They are online at BookFactory.com - Laboratory Notebooks, Log Books, Engineering Notebooks, Custom Lab Notebooks. If you search for "gun log book" in google or yahoo you'll find them.
