For a Navy LT...a cheap shot unworthy of your position and rank.

At that point I had two choices. I could pay $350+ for an appeal. If I won the appeal, I would get back the $175 fine. I would still be out $275. So in that case, if I won I was going to be out $275, if I lost I was going to be out $525, and to me that price was not worth paying to be able to thumb my nose at some cop who didn't know the proper law to cite me with.
However, let us examine why I equated your bossess decision, not yours (you are an employee), as being ish. The BATFE agent(s) that you are dealing with are telling you something that is against the written interpretation of the law that his bossess in Washington DC have published in the 2005 Federal Firearms Regulation Reference Guide on page 165. Given this fact, your boss is unwilling to write to the Washington DC office and point this fact out in order to have the BATFE agent in question trained as to what his agency has already interpreted. I even offered in a PM for you to send me the agents' names and I would write to the DC Office. That to me is ish.
You know what, some people would call me a for not pursuing my appeal since I still continue to feel that I was correct. And to those people, I say, "BAAAAAA!" But at least I am a with $275 more in my fleece, and you have in your fleece whatever profits you would be out should you find yourself having to fight an action against you. So, yes, you are right, this is a matter of the calling the wool white!
