Still waiting for my FFL03. Filed the forms and check cashed in December. Have lived in same location for past 10 years and haven't even had a traffic ticket before. I called, but the same answer...pending. Oh well, I can't even remember why I wasted my $30 for this now!

Just off the telephone with BATF. They said they sent my packets to me on April 7th. They then confrimed the correct address for me, but I never received it. I asked if there was a second packet sent as well. They said it was sent from the distribution center and I would need to contact them.

Can anyone tell me how big the second packet is and what it looks like? I get like three or four piecies of mail per day not counting catalogs. I don't see how I could have missed both mailings...especially since I have been looking for it each day!

My large packet showed up a couple of months after my license. It's a big, thick manilla envelope with the laws and a CD.

Blow me down. I received both my license and packet today! The license was in my mail box and the packet was on my door step. It didn't fit in my mail box.

It took just over 4 months from my sending in my application and check and BATF receiving it and cashing my check in December 2010.

Finally!

YES -

1) This is normal.
2) You will get it. The time frame seems to be between 6 and 18 weeks.

The BATFE seemed to be better last year about getting packages out. This year (with more controversy in the agency, and a new administrator being sought) they seem to be taking longer.

That's kinda funny, because when my boss goes on vacation, I get as much work done that week as I normally get done in a month!

5 weeks from mailing out to receiving my license, I guess I got really lucky, just waiting on my COE now. I need a nice SKS, any suggestions on where to look?

Man these guys must really want their money... I sent a request online for the C&R FFL Application Tuesday night at 11ish pm. I got it yesterday (Thursday) afternoon. Never seen a government agency reply to a request that fast.

its not that difficult. Do you live in a city, if so, send it to your local police station, attn: Chief of Police. If you in the county, send it to the Sheriff station, attn: Sheriff. Technically, if you live in the city, you have two CLEOs, the CoP and the Sheriff, if you sent it to either one, I doubt that ATF would care.

I was looking at the pdf from the ATF website and on the application item #9 they were asking for position and SSN, what position are they particularly asking? Is it position in your current work? or the position on the application?

The same form is used for other FFL classifications.

Either "Collector" or "N/A" as appropriate for several of the entries.

Sent the PDF off the evening of 5-11, they charged my card on 5-15 and I got it in the mail yesterday, 6-4. Not bad, 24 days from sending.

Looks like they're getting caught up.
I sent my app in March 2010 and it took 3 weeks.

If it's been OVER 90 days from the time they "process" your app (not the time from your check or bank is charged) Give them a call.
Sometimes it takes 12 weeks from the processing date.

Oh well. Now I'm just waiting for the packet.
