Switching to FastBound is fast, and easy!
When you’re ready to switch to FastBound you will only transfer your open items (items that have been acquired, but not disposed). Concerns about transferring disposed of items include records being transferred incorrectly, or incompletely. When you log your open Items into FastBound you will log them in with the original Acquire date and who you Acquired them from.
If you have a lot of open items you can easily import a spreadsheet CSV file of your open items. Simply fill the import spreadsheet out and import it in your Settings.
In your old records, you would record the date you entered the Items into FastBound as your dispose date and enter “Transferred to FastBound Electronic A&D” for the dispose name. After you dispose all of your open Items from your old A&D record you will download and maintain a full bound book from your old system as your final version from that system.
ATF requires that you retain the old records until you surrender your FFL.
ATF does not allow you to maintain two sets of records at once.
