COVID-19 Gun Sales & Challenges


COVID-19 gun sales in the month of April alone are up 36.8% compared to January of this year. While this boost in sales is undoubtedly welcomed, most jurisdictions have implemented varying degrees of restrictions on business operations, which creates an entirely unique set of challenges.

Since 2010, FastBound Firearms Compliance Software has provided thousands of FFLs including manufacturers, retailers, distributors, importers, and pawnbrokers with guaranteed compliance with the latest ATF rulings, and a guaranteed, attorney-backed legal defense from the ATF legal experts at FFLGuard.

We recently received a great testimonial from a customer of ours that we want to share:

I would like to say that I have absolutely nothing but high praise for your software.

Due to the whole COVID-19 issue, we had to transition to curbside pickup. Running paper in and out to customers would have been absolutely impossible. FastBound streamlined the process and made what would have been a nightmare an honest cakewalk.

You have a customer for life!

If you’re not familiar with FastBound, our integrated electronic 4473 software solution presents a QR code for printing and display, typically in your store or event (like a gun show). Pointing a smartphone at the FastBound QR code allows the buyer to complete and sign ATF Form 4473 right on their mobile device without even downloading an app.

If you are practicing social distancing because of COVID-19 and your gun sales are now happening curbside, then you can show your buyers the QR code, and let them scan it with their smartphone so that they can fill out and sign their 4473 in the comfort of their own vehicle.

Our loyal customers never cease to amaze us with their ingenuity, whether it’s mechanical engineering, manufacturing, logistics, or creative solutions to changes in our industry, the market, and maybe even the world.
