AutoGunTracker is an Internet based solution that
manages the data most critical to being a successful firearms dealer by
simplifying the entire transaction process into one accessible platform.
Every firearms dealer is required to have a Federal Firearms License (FFL).
Compliance with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) is critical
in maintaining an FFL license. No license, no business.
From acquisition to disposition and all the forms in between, dealers are
required to enter firearm information over and over again, increasing the
likelihood of error and increasing the chances of being out of compliance.
What does compliance mean? As FFL holders know all too well the time and effort
it takes to properly maintain records to stay in compliance.
Most of the acquisition information (manufacturer/importer, model, serial
number, gauge or caliber, and type of action) has to be re-entered for the BATF
Form 4473, Form 3310.4, 3310-11, Form 4, Form 5 and others. Every form must be
filled out correctly. No transposing serial numbers, no typographical errors.
The ATF Bound Book tracks all firearms that pass through a dealer’s possession.
The BATF can request information from or perform an audit on a dealer at any
time. Even with proper record keeping, it can take hours to find the data in a
manual bound book.
AutoGunTracker is so powerful, a dealer must enter information
only once, and it is automatically available through the AGT system in the
following strategic capacities:
• An Electronic Bound
FFL holders are required to keep a registry of firearms sales in an ATF-approved
• The only BATF
compliant Electronic 4473 available.

the AGT system. After reviewing the section to be completed by a customer making

firearm from the electronic inventory and the 4473 is automatically

AutoGunTracker is a
web-based application. Dealers can check inventory and perform transactions from
any device capable of connecting to the Internet including desktop computers,
laptops, and hand held 3G/4G devices. A dealer is not bound by location or
licensing issues. All communication is done over secure socket layer (SSL), the
same encryption level that is used by online banking.
A leading distributor of outdoor and shooting sports products in the
nation, has partnered with AutoGunTracker to make compliance even easier for
dealers purchasing product. When a shipment of firearms is received from
them, the information can be reviewed and confirmed on the AutoGunTracker
system. When the review is complete, one click will load all of the firearm
information into the acquisition side of the Bound Book.
All dealer data is secure. AutoGunTracker backs up dealer data continuously in
redundant locations simultaneously. Lost or stolen computers and failed hard
drives will no longer mean the tragedy of losing important data. AGT Bound Books
are available on demand at any time and are mailed in Excel format daily. The
dealer always has a hard copy available in store.
In addition to the many
features mentioned above, AutoGunTracker also provides support for those dealers
who offer gunsmithing services. A separate bound book is maintained for gunsmith
activity. A dealer can enter parts and work performed on a job. The progress of
the work can be tracked online by the customer, who will then receive an email
from the system when the work is completed.
