Doh, now that you mention it and relooking at form I did the same thing. O well we shall see what happens I guess. I suspect that it should have already been returned but who knows.

Look up ATF licensing center on Google. It will provide you a link that says "licensing and other services." Then call the number for the federal firearms licensing center that they have listed. They may be closed now since they are located in West Virginia.

Well the good thing about people using cc or checks to pay, at least you know your app got there and when since they seem to charge you as soon as it arrives.

Default re: Initialing the box about the safe instead of N/A

I mailed my app on the Jan 25th and my check was cashed yesterday, so I call this morning about initialing the box about the safe in section 20 instead of putting "N/A". The nice lady that I talked to said that it should not be a problem, but put me in touch with the "California Examiner" for confirmation. I left that person, Sarah, a message and will report back when/if I get a response.

So just got off the phone with the licensing dept. They said my FFL03 was approved on the 2nd and mailed out so I should be getting it within the next days. To give you a timeline they charged my CC on Nov 30th.

Dang, they must be really backed up. I sent mine in around the same time but my fudge up will probably have me waiting around til March or April.

I did a Livescan on January 24th and mailed my COE application on January 25th. I received my COE certificate in the mail today.

Now I just have to wait for my FFL 03 to arrive.

Mailed Both COE and FFL03 on Jan 11th, got my COE on the 23rd of Jan. Still haven't heard jack squat from ATF, just went to bank and checked the status of the check I sent and it still hasn't been cashed. Wondering if I should put a stop to check and mail out new form and check?

I sent my FFL 03 Application in on January 24th. About a week later, I had fraudulent activity on the credit card I included on my application and my credit card account was closed. As the ATF had not yet charged the credit card, I sent them an email telling them what had happened and asked how I could get a new credit card number to them to go with my application. I received a prompt reply telling me that once my application was pulled from "the bank," they would contact me for a new credit card number. The fact that they have a bank of applications tells me that they are experiencing something of a backlog right now. My application still has not made it out of the bank, as I have not yet been contacted for new payment information.

Judging by other people's timelines, had I done everything right I would have received the licence by now. As of last week, their Georgia office still hasn't cashed my check. I don't even know how long I'll be waiting for. What if it got lost in the mail? Take it from me kids, make sure you've done everything right before you submit.

I didn't know they had a number to be contacted on, I searched for a moment and only found a email address.
But that's all moot now, my bank put a stop on the check for some reason. The clerk couldn't give me a reason either.

When did you mail the app in?

Also - after I mail the app should I go ahead and start the COE process?

You could probably wait a month before applying for the COE and it will still arrive first. Seems the time for COE is about 7-14 days.

Hah - thanks. That makes sense. I have a quick question on process:

So, I go to a livescan place, they do the livescan, send the money to the two agencies, I pay them a fee - and they give me an ATI number.

I then use that number to fill out the COE thing online? And...that's it?

Thanks,

MP

Yep, you pay for the COE at the Livescan. I took cash to pay for it. You also need three copies of the form. I only printed two thinking one for me one for DOJ but the Livescan location keeps one also. Thankfully they made a copy for themselves.

I mailed everything in but I would assume it would be the same online the livescan will give you the number.

Just got mine today.

Original send in date: 11/22/17
App sent back to me for corrections: 12/15/17
App sent to ATF with corrections: 01/11/18
Check cashed: Sometime in the past two weeks
FFL received: 02/26/18

What we have learned from my experience: If you have yours sent back for corrections, once they clear your check the licence will be sent to you in a timely manner.

Got my FFL today

I have a question, reading the license it appears as though I am not to sign the license but make copies of it and sign those. So if I only plan to use it for ammo can I just make a copy sign it then send that to ammo vendors?

Thats what I did. Just sign a copy. Target sports usa has a system to upload it to your account fairly easily. I just took a picture with my phone and uploaded it.

I sent in my FFL03 application on 12/28/2017 and received the license on 3/2/2018. It took a little more than 60 days.

I applied for the COE online in January, 2018 and got it approved exactly 3 weeks later.

Mine took less than a month. I guess it depends on prior security clearance.

Quick question: Other than the license itself am I suppose to receive anything else from ATF. I thought I read that they send a bound book and a cd with a list of firearms that are c&r eligible.
