The California DROS-Dealer’s Record of Sale Entry System is the background check system that FFLs use to register purchases or transfers to residents of California.

California acts as the Point of Contact (POC) for All Firearms Transactions. California is a “POC state” along with Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Utah, and Virginia.

  • “NICS states” are states in which the FBI Conducts NICS Checks for All Firearms Transactions
  • “POC states” act as the Point of Contact (POC) for All Firearms Transactions
  • “Partial POC” states Act as a Partial Point of Contact (POC) for NICS Checks

Accurate data entry is a crucial part of making sure firearms don’t end up in the hands of criminals. Additionally, paying employees to hand-type information into systems like DROS is time-consuming and costly. 

Typically, dealers are only running background checks in a single state, but if you are running background checks in multiple states or you have locations in multiple states, FastBound has you covered!

FastBound’s unique multi-state background check system eliminates data entry errors, improving the speed and quality of transferee and firearm information entered into background check systems like NICS and those operated by POC and partial-POC states. 

FastBound does not submit or process background checks on your behalf. After reviewing for completeness and correctness, your designee must submit each background check request, occasionally answering questions not captured by ATF Form 4473 in states that ask additional questions.
