Teamwork Drives Success

Based in Denver, CO, JC, Karrie and JB joined forces to create a supportive consulting team to fill the need for small and mid-sized FFL's that was supportive, knowledgeable, confidential and available, especially in times of crisis. They recognized the need to organize and simplify the many regulations, resources and training tools that were needed by a very mature but diverse community of firearms dealers, distributors and manufacturers. The end result is FFL Consultants!

Why We Created FFLC

Several years ago and after supporting hundreds of FFL's with their compliance, security and training challenges, we recognized that the success of an FFL is dependent on their ability to access, comprehend, understand and train to the requirements of both federal and state oversight organizations. The skills and tools available to keep up with regulatory notices, to decipher federal updates and maintain current compliance requirements was a challenge. We set out to simplify and organize the resources and tools to help FFL's navigate this process, gain confidence and drive their own personal success.
