1.1.Introduction #



This software was built by a FFL (Federal Firearm Licence) owner, whom goes by the name of Steven Ling. He was born in Quebec, Canada. Mr. Ling began working as an agricultural mechanic on farming equipment, throughout his school-life. Steven also owned a computer/networking retail store during the “dot com” era, from 1995-to-2000. He has also spent most of his working-life in the IT realm of the corrugated industry, running teams to install “Quote-2-Cash” around the globe in corrugated box plants such as: “International Paper,” “Weyerhaeuser,” “Rock-Tenn,” “Smurfit,” and their “Sheet Plants.”

In 2011, Steven started a retail gun shop, as well as a gunsmithing service, too. The need for an efficient software program to help maintain daily activity and inventory was now higher than ever. A problem he often found himself running into, was that almost every software out there, under this subject, was not priced for a small, starting business to simply keep records. Thus, it became Steven’s mission to create a software that would be cost-effective from the small, to ever growing businesses. Near the end of the year, 2014, the current coding for this application started with utilizing Quickbooks for the front, retail area. Since Quickbooks is not an industry-specific software, and could not help automate some of the shop’s processes, the direction was to create a software that would be cost-effective from the smaller, to the larger-based businesses. This software is geared from the home of FFL, which entails: gunsmithing, gunshop, and even range management. MYFFLBook can handle multiple locations at once, and can be ran from a central database server.

In 2016, Steven built a gun range located in Loveland, OH to help with the build of this software. Here, is an excerpt of our history on with the MyFFLBook software. Our owner could not find any comparable, inexpensive software on the market, which would allow a single individual the ability to adhere to the industry requirements at a low cost. The creator and founder of MYFFLBook, began as a home-based gunsmith, when he started.

The MyFFLBook software is for those whom are collectors, wanting to keep track of firearm acquisitions and dispositions, while also introducing an electronic-bound (e-book) book, as well. This particular software is for those whom do not want to utilize an old, manual, paper-process for their firearm acquisitions and dispositions, but to introduce an e-book, instead. One of the top goals of MyFFLBook, is to keep a clean, 4473 e-book. This will enable easy-to-track transfers of both sales and work orders.  to wear-and-tear on lanes in your range. MyFFLBook allows the ability to use a 3D scanner to scan state-issued documents to help input minimal customer data. MyFFLBook is for those who are collectors and want to keep track of firearm acquisitions and dispositions but introduce an electronic bounded book. MyFFLBook is for those who do not want to use an old manual paper process for their firearm acquisitions and dispositions but introduce an electronic bounded book.

A little bit of history on our MyFFLBook software. Mr. Ling could not find an in-expensive software on the market that would allow a single individual the ability to adhere to the industry requirements at a low-cost. Understanding the value of a dollar and viewing the needs from gunsmiths perspective, Steve set out to create an effective and efficient software that is all-encompassing.
