Default DOJ Dealer Compliance Inspection

Hello fellow FFL dealers. I have a small business out of my home dealing firearms and completing some private party transfers. I have had a couple of ATF Inspections with no problems. I was recently informed of my first upcoming DOJ Dealer Compliance Inspection. I'm wondering how this might differ from an ATF inspection.

For example, the ATF agent asked me to have all paperwork (4473 forms, DROS Forms, Bound Book entries, and firearm inventory) on the table and ready for review, for the past one year before the inspection.

Is a DOJ inspection pretty much the same? I am sure that the DOJ inspector will also be looking at CA signage, warning labels, etc.

Thanks for any info. I reckon I'll give the DOJ a call, too. But I am interested in a dealer perspective

Yep, pretty much the same, except checking the signs, make sure that you have the current version.

Is it too soon to make a soap on the rope reference?

This inspection is very simple! Look at every CA law required by. CFD holder and have your ducks in a row. Soap on a rope helps. And Iím not joking.

You forgot to tell him to post his inventory and to protect his dog.

He's a home based FFL. Maybe its time to invest in a Claymore Roomba.
