Default 4473 and DROS stored togther

Do most of you store these stapled together? Does the DOJ or ATF have a preference?

I also store all of mine together although my ATF inspector did say they "probably" should stay seperate.

On a funny side note, my CaDoJ inspector gave me some 'advise' for the 4473 forms and when I called my ATF inspector to confirm what I had been told by the CaDoJ the ATF inspector just laughed and said, and I qoute, "Those guys have no business giving you ANY advise for OUR form, just do it the way you have been, you are fine"!! I got a good chuckle out of that!!!

Over the last 40 years we have been told multiple times from ATF they want them separate. DOJ over the years have proven they have no idea what they want.
