Can a FFL transfer guns at a banquet like NWTF/DU?

I know FFLs can setup at Gunshows

But can do transfers at a NWTF/DU banquets for guys around the state. Reason being because of gun raffles they do and they are having alot of problems with stores they are using locally.

They are wanting somebody to do them at the banquet and people leave with them when its over.

NWTF = National Wild Turkey Federation Banquets
DU = Ducks Unlimited

No. They can only dispense from there address or a gun show, which is considered an extension of the storefront.

We helped with an NRA dinner and had to do the same kind of thing.

Ok, that is what I thought.

I will tell them so they will know.

Appreciate it.

That is incorrect information you got there from DL. In the February 1999 FFL newsletter the ATF sends out to all dealers this topic was specifically addressed and here was thier response:

ATF has been asked to comment on whether
functions such as the Ducks Unlimited or Friends
of the NRA dinner banquets would constitute an
“event” under 18 U.S.C. § 923(j) and 27 CFR §
As you are aware, the Gun Control Act of 1968
(GCA) generally requires Federal firearms
licensees to engage in the business from the
location specified on their license. However, the
GCA allows Federal firearms licensees to conduct
business temporarily at a location other than the
location specified on the license if such temporary
location is a gunshow or event.
The GCA defines a gunshow or event as a function
“sponsored by any national, State, or local
organization, or any affiliate of such organization
devoted to the collection, competitive use, or
other sporting use of firearms in the community.”
18 U.S.C. § 923(j). Therefore, Federal firearms
licensees may conduct business temporarily at
such events provided they are sponsored by a
qualifying organization as defined in 18 U.S.C. §
923(j) and 27 CFR § 178.100.
Licensees must remember that these gunshows or
events must be located in the State where they
currently have a licensed business premises, and
they must record the locations of any firearms
transactions occurring at these events in all their
required records. Furthermore, NICS checks must
be conducted on these transfers in the same
manner as the licensees conduct such checks from
their licensed premises.

Thank you

I ended up finding that in all of my reading.

We have had...

...Friends of NRA banquets at our club for the last three years.

We have an FFL come in and handle all transfers on every type of firearm we sell, auction, or raffle. In fact, this particular FFL handles several banquets of this type annually. He has a shop about 100+ miles from our club. He also runs a game at our banquet, and he's donated the proceeds to the Friends of NRA.

We've had offers from a couple of FFL's to handle this, but we always go back to this fellow.

As part of our courtesy, we allow him to set up and sell additional guns if he chooses.
