What is the current processing time for C&R license after debit from your account?

I thought I was beating the rush by sending it in August. It has been 9 weeks.. almost 10.

I mailed my application on August 31st, they received it on September 2nd, they charged my credit card on September 3rd and I received the license in the mail on September 25th. The info packet with the CD arrived while I was on vacation, it was postmarked October 17th.

The CD is "State Laws and Published Ordinances: Firearms"

It's ATF Publication 5300.5 Revised Dec 2009

I'm all over it
Thanks for the push
I'll post back if anyone is interested in the what where and why

It is definitely not due to any legal issues. I have security clearance at sensitive facilities
and just picked up a handgun out of DROS just last week

Maybe that has something to do with it. Not that you are in any trouble but maybe you got flagged for deeper scrutiny?

I put in a change of address thirty days before I moved (Sept 1st), and didn't get it until thirty days after (Oct 30th) I moved into the new place....I had to call several times and left several messages, all of which went unanswered. I was finally told the there was a personnel shake up that was creating the backlog.

As of Monday Nov 15, they are quoting a 60-90 day processing time from date of receipt.

I got an email response from ATF
As I stated in a previous post they processed my account $32 on 9.20.10

The email states that they received the application October 6th
Do the math

Then per the posts since I started this thread they quoted a 60 approval denial process

Throw in some holidays and I would expect to receive my C&R in January
and I thought I was beating the rush.... barely

So anyone trying to get a C&R now will take 4 months or more if you add the anticipated backlog that the PRK is creating for law abiding citizens

The first time seems to take longer than the renewals. I've renewed 3 or 4 times now and it's usually 6 weeks or so. The first one took 3 months, IIRC.

Hmmm...mine expires in mid March. I should send off a renewal within the next month just to be safe.

Took mine three months, but this was last year I think.

I ordered 10 forms to distribute to the Marksmanship Club. I only got two of them.

The printing presses used to make new dollars must be displacing the printing of important forms :)

I do not remember how long the forms took,but it was over a month

You are aware the ATF has now published a pdf copy on their website... I used it to get my license last month.
