As July 14th is now only a few weeks away, thousands of NFA buyers are wondering what the new application process is going to entail. Suppressor buyers have the option of using Silencer Shop’s network of “Powered By” dealers to facilitate their transfers. And in a post 41F-world, that will include the use of a new Kiosk system that will take electronic copies of fingerprints for submission into the BATFE’s National Firearms Act (NFA) application process.
In preparation for the new system, Silencer Shop is shipping out the “Secure Identity Documentation” Kiosks to select dealers along with information on the new system:
SILENCER SHOP has officially selected XXXX as one of the initial 300 Secure Identity Documentation (S.I.D.) Kiosk Locations nationwide!.
In the next week or two I will be receiving the kiosk (see attached photo to see what SID will look like) and shortly thereafter the software will be installed. I will let you know when SID’s first day on the job will be.
How does SID work? – SID’s kiosk contains a computer, monitor, and a fingerprint scanner. This kiosk will allow the you to scan your fingerprints and signature so that we can complete all ATF paperwork. This system is fully secure and compliant with the ATF. None of the data is stored locally, it is securely transmitted to Silencer Shop where they highly secure servers for data integrity.
- Customers and Trustees have to scan their finger prints one time and they will be kept on file for future purchases
- Software will automatically determine if the finger print scan is clear enough and done right, greatly reducing rejected fingerprint cards
- Customers will not have to make appointments with local Sheriff department for prints
- We handle all the ATF paperwork
Silencer Shop will securely store fingerprints for future use! Once in the system the customers will be able to make future purchases without having to rescan their fingerprints every time. This is the case for orders via trust, corporation or individual.
There will be a small fee associated with the use of the kiosk (probably $XX) but when you consider that it’s a one-time fee for ALL your future Form 1 and Form 4 transactions (yes, I can use it to do any class of NFA transaction!) you’re saving money in the long run …
We continue to “provide the simplest buying experience possible for suppressors.”
I plan on being first in line at one of my local dealers to document the kiosk process on July 14th. See you back here for a full report in a couple weeks.
Thanks “F” for the tip!
