FFLGuard and FastBound Team to Deliver Effective, Affordable Technology to FFLs

FFLGuard, the Gold Standard in the Firearms Industry for Legal Services and Compliance Solutions, announced today that it is partnering with the innovative team at FastBound to support their cloud-based ATF compliance software Acquisition and Disposition (A&D) Record software for Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs).

Backed by FFLGuard, FastBound now offers a comprehensive ATF Ruling 2016-1 compliant solution to support regulatory issues faced by all FFLs in their A&D record keeping as mandated by the Gun Control FastBound customers receive FFLGuard’s ProtectionPlan Plus, which is a 100% guaranteed legal defense against if ATF inspection violations related to FastBound software result in administrative action (ATF warning letters, warning conferences, denied renewals or revocations), as well as contextual and real-time FFLGuard QuickTips designed to proactively help FFLs avoid ATF inspection violations or administrative action against their license.

“As the originators and innovators of what we do for the firearms industry, it made sense for FFLGuard to collaborate with FastBound, who has what our massive client base really needs,” said Christopher Chiafullo, National Coordinating Counsel for FFLGuard.

“Providing our unmatched experience and personnel to stand behind FastBound’s standalone A&D product, like we do for the point-of- sale integrated AXIS system from AcuSport, differentiates these solutions from other garden-variety offerings in the marketplace,” Mr. Chiafullo states.

Located near Sacramento, CA, FastBound draws its experience from Co-Founder Jarad Haselton, and his long history working with other FFLs and as an FFL himself, and Co-Founder Jason Smith’s more than 18 years of experience designing and building software compliance solutions for banking, healthcare and other regulated industries.

“I have been involved in the firearms industry for years, and quickly realized that few technology providers delivered on the real needs of an FFL,” Mr. Haselton stated. “When I heard Chris [Chiafullo] speak at SHOT Show this past year, I knew that our software coupled with FFLGuard and their status as the unmatched legal protection provider in the industry would create a unique solution that could fill a huge gap left by other tech vendors.”

FastBound, complete with FFLGuard’s ProtectionPlan Plus and FFLGuard QuickTips, is available immediately at fastbound.com.
