Unlike many other offerings, this software was written specifically for the serious gun collector. As a testimony, ATF has given approval to several of my customers to use NM Gun Collector Software as an ATF -Approved computerized version of the Acquisition and Disposition Record (A&D) book (aka alternate record). PLEASE NOTE: ATF does not give blanket approval of any software package. Each individual that wants to use a software package as an alternative to a paper bound book must seek and obtain ATF approval. Please see my detailed analysis of the subject as it applies to NM Gun Collector Software
