M.G.L. c.140, §123 requires that the licensing authority shall enter, one time per calendar year, during regular
business hours, the commercial premises owned or leased by any licensee, wherein such records required to be
maintained under this section are stored or maintained, and inspect, in a reasonable manner, such records and
inventory for the purpose of enforcing the provisions of this section. This checklist is intended to assist the
licensing authority in documenting the inspection. A check mark following an "Item of Inspection" indicates
compliance with that particular requirement.

                                                      Item of Inspection                                                               
Records indicate that the licensee properly utilizes the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, form FA10 for all sales of firearms,
rifles, shotguns and machine guns, and that FA10 forms are being properly completed and filed, with appropriate copies being
sent to the Criminal History Systems Board within the required time.

Records indicate that the licensee properly utilizes an appropriate sales record book for all firearms, rifles, shotguns and machine
guns which are received, sold or delivered to or by the licensee. A sales record book meeting the requirements of a federal
firearms licensed dealer shall also meet the requirements of Massachusetts dealer licensed under section 123.

The sales record book listings for the licensee's current inventory match the actual inventory of the licensee. This section may be
completed by doing either a complete inventory inspection, or by comparing a random sampling of the licensee's inventory with
the entries listed in the licensee's sales record book.

The state dealer's license or a copy thereof is displayed on the premises in a position where it can easily be read.

No firearm, rifle or shotgun, or machine gun is displayed in any outer window of the licensee's business premises or in any other
place where it can readily be seen from the outside.

A random sampling of the licensee's inventory indicates that firearms, rifles, shotguns and machine guns offered for sale by the
licensee are unloaded.

During all sales, deliveries or leases of firearms, rifles, shotguns, machine guns or ammunition therefore which took place during
the inspection if any such transaction occurred, the licensee required proof of appropriate licensure or lawful exemption from the
buyer or person receiving the firearm, rifle, shotgun, machine gun or ammunition..

The licensee has conspicuously posted at each purchase counter the following warning in bold type not less than one inch in
height: “IT IS UNLAWFUL TO STORE OR KEEP A FIREARM, RIFLE, SHOTGUN OR MACHINE GUN IN ANY
PLACE UNLESS THAT WEAPON IS EQUIPPED WITH A TAMPER-RESISTANT SAFETY DEVICE OR IS
STORED OR KEPT IN A SECURELY LOCKED CONTAINER.” and that such licensee shall provide said warning, in
writing, to the purchaser or transferee of any firearm, rifle, shotgun or machine gun in bold type not less than one-quarter inch in
height.
The licensee maintains a permanent place of business that is not a residence or dwelling pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws.

The licensee's records and inventory indicates that no sale, lease, rental, transfer or delivery of an assault weapon or large capacity
feeding device to any person has been made or was or is being offered if said items were not otherwise lawfully possessed on
September 13, 1994. This includes all large capacity magazines manufactured after that date and restricted to law enforcement,
military or export only.

Records indicate that any rifle, shotgun, firearm or machine gun that has been lost or stolen from the licensee was reported to the
licensing authority and the executive director of the criminal history systems board forthwith.

Records indicate that firearms in inventory or that have been sold, rented, leased, transferred or delivered after October 21, 1998
meet the conditions of clauses 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st of section 123.

All transactions involving firearms, rifles, shotguns or machine guns are conducted at the licensed business premise unless
otherwise authorized by law, and all records required to be kept under section 123 are kept at the location listed on the license.

State approved trigger locks appear to be supplied by the licensee with all firearms and large capacity rifles and shotguns
being sold.
