It's my understanding that agents don't do inspections, it's done by investigators (not gun carriers).RetiredLawman said:Would you use white out if you made an error when doing it right? You've done everything by the book but you wrote down something by looking at the S/N wrong, maybe transposing the number? Or would you line through the transaction and start over with an explanation?
I know how technical the auditors can get. I don't think they have changed much since my days in LE. They love to catch a t uncrossed or an i not dotted.
Is white out ever used in your transaction bound book? I was never a BATF agent but I knew a few that would give jello a case of nerves. There was one agent that I knew that was so strict that the dealers he audited couldn't keep coffee in their cups while he was using a microscope on their invoices, bound book, and procedures.
I suppose that a lot of things have changed since my time but human nature being what it is, some people can't handle authority. It seems to make their day when they have the upper hand and can harass someone. They don't know the definition of good judgement.
