Why???

If that paper work is so necessary, how is it that most gun shops and pawn shops do their FFL work without any of that extra paper??

Some other shops do have extra paperwork/checklists.

As to why? My guess is that their staff made mistakes before. I'm guessing you've never run a business before with employees (or managed people)? The reason policies/procedures get added are to correct issues and to ensure less mistakes in the future.

Smaller shops with less employees maybe don't have these issues.

Larger shops with many part time employees may have these issues.

Given the people they consistently hire, I would do the same thing or hire higher quality employees.

An Hour and a half PPT did me in.
The gal started it for us then handed it off to someone else who was clueless...when she went to lunch came back around 45 min later and finished it up. that was 4 years ago I will never go back. That said for the sake of keeping another Gun OUTLET in the bay OK... just that I won't do business with them..

Iíll only shoot there on weekday mornings. Otherwise itís too scary.
Iíve bought several guns from TM. I put up with the ridiculously long paperwork process for very good prices.
I would go to another LGS for PPT. Itís not worth the wait to do it there.
I will miss them if they shut down, I still miss Chabot.
