    ATF Compliance

    "When my shop had an issue with ATF compliance, we called upon Kurt Offner.  He and Wayne Babovich proved once again that they have incredible insight into both compliance and the procedures necessary to assure a successful ATF audit of my company’s activities.  Their book can save any gun dealer 10 times what it’s worth in a single year.  Their expertise is worth thousands of dollars."

    Protect Your Rights | Kerry Rainey

    We constantly use the prior edition of the Law of Pawn to show law enforcement that a pawnbroker’s rights must be protected and recognized. By being able to regularly show law enforcement, in writing, that pawnbrokers have rights which must be recognized, saves me from wrongful seizures and the loss of my rights as a law abiding business.

    Understanding the Law & How It Affects Your Business | Kevin Macdonald

    I have heard the authors of this book speak on many occasions over the years. Not only do they know the law, but, they are true allies of the pawn industry and are committed to protecting our rights.

    Pawnbrokers need to understand their legal rights and responsibilities under the law.  Truth in Lending disclosures, ATF reporting requirements, Bankruptcy rules, Gramm Leach Bliley mandates, and the Patriot Act’s regulations all impact each and every pawnbroker. This book helps explain these, and many more, Federal laws we face each day.

    The Power of Knowledge | Robert Verhoeff

    The knowledge these guys have of our industry is amazing. Their zealousness in protecting our rights is even more amazing. This book will be a powerful tool for me and my business.

    Meeting a Pawnbrokers Standard of Compliance | Duane Gautreau

    Pawnbrokers need to both understand their rights under the law and understand their responsibilities under the law. Truth in Lending disclosures, ATF reporting requirements, Bankruptcy rules, Gramm Leach Bliley mandates, and Patriot Act regulations all impact each and every pawnbroker. This book helps explain these and many more Federal laws we face each day.

    We’ve provided law enforcement, the state regulators, and legislators a copy of The Law of Pawn.  Each copy we give is embossed “Compliments of Acadian Pawn Shop.”

    The message is clear.  We know and follow the law, and we expect everyone to meet our standard of compliance.
