If a theft/loss report is filed by the transferor/sender FFL after a theft/loss report has already been filed by the contract carrier and/or a transferee/receiver FFL, would multiple reports be entered into ATF’s lost/stolen gun database?

Tracing Center (NTC) will only record one incident of a lost or stolen firearm in the NTC lost/stolen gun database, even if multiple reports are filed.
