With over 100 years of combined experience, their team includes former industry attorneys, former ATF investigators, and FFL compliance officers. The Retail Technology Group and Orchid are dedicated to gun dealer and shooting range compliance, and have arranged for discounted access to the industry’s best regulatory compliance program.
