Anybody up on FFL regulations?

So I picked up a package at my local FFL dealer today and they insisted on keeping my original manufacture receipt that came with the package. No one has ever done this to me before and when I said I wanted it, they told me it's a federal regulation that they have to keep it. Seems odd to me and apparently google has never heard of this either. Do we have any FFL license holders here that can lend some insight?

I would say if they did the transfer then yes,legally the gun went to them first then to you.

An FFL is required to keep a record of the purchase and disposition of the firearm in their bound book, but I've never heard of a requirement to keep the physical receipt from the factory. That may just be their store policy to have corroborating documents.

If this is the case, then the FFL should give me a receipt showing what was purchased and the full amount paid, as opposed to the receipt they gave me for the $25 I paid for their services. It only makes sense for me to keep and file a company letterheaded receipt proving my tools are legally aquired.

This jibes with my feelings on the matter, but no need to lie and claim it's a federal regulation. If this shop intentionally tried to deceive me, it's time to take my business elsewhere. I've done business with them before but this is the first time they refused to turn over the original legal receipt for my new purchase.

The receipt for the purchase belongs to you. It's your documentation that you bought it. They need to document receiving the weapon and what it is, along with releasing it to you. If they have nothing to do with the purchase, they need no record of the purchase.

As was stated it is not a federal regulation to keep the original receipt. They are required to show all documentation about the disposition of the weapon but it is your receipt for the purchase. Not theirs.
