NSSF Debuts ‘Starting Point’ Resource Center for New FFLs

Starting Point

NEWTOWN, Conn.- The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the trade association for the firearms industry, is pleased to announce the debut Starting Point, a comprehensive resource center for entrepreneurs beginning the process of entering the firearms industry marketplace.

Intended to provide a business planning and compliance policy foundation for new Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) and shooting range operators, Starting Point offers several benefits. At the top of the list is a full day’s training provided by NSSF’s Compliance Consultant Team. During that training, firearms industry professionals will cover the ins and outs of important compliance records such as the Federal Form 4473, the dealer’s Acquisition & Disposition (A&D) record book, forms for multiple handgun sales reporting, and more. Working with gun show sales, internet sales, gun rental and NFA (National Firearms Act) firearms will also be covered.

Created to be the go-to resource for startup FFLs who, like the head of any enterprise, will have questions as their business evolves and grows, Starting Point provides a 24/7 hotline to guide new firearms industry professionals along the way. And, since Starting Point is available only to NSSF members, those enrolling in the program will also have access to NSSF’s library of research, as well as the many complimentary items essential to their business, such as A&D books, Form 4473 Spanish language overlays, safety literature, business planning, range development and merchandising manuals, and much more.

Enrollment in Starting Point is now open. To enroll your business and schedule your training day with NSSF’s Compliance Consultant Team, contact Patrick Shay, NSSF Director, Retail Development, at 203-426-1320 ext. 216, or [email protected]. Not a member of NSSF? Join here.
