Have you ever seen attendance records for government offices?  I was in DC one time with 2" of snow and no one goes to work. LOL

Don't know about the Chi Com virus, but the falling Dow Jones will have a very bad effect on NFA sales.

The examiners have worked from home for years.

The first time I visited the NFA branch, in 2010, I asked my sponsor-host if I could take a group photo of the examiners; there was only one there. The cubicles were all empty, he then told me that they work from home several days a week. As I recall they started doing that back when fuel prices really skyrocketed 

That is why is will sometimes see forms approved on weekends and holidays. I had a form approved on the 4th of July.

I will be a buyer if MG prices fall a bit. If MG prices do not fall then I will put the cash in the stock market.

It would be the same as the old days when we used to fax in form 3's and the fax paper spool fed into the shredder.  They were early adopters on the whole green/ recycling thing at NFA branch.   I still have some thermal paper here somewhere near some of my crispy irradiated forms during the ricin thing.   LOL

I picked up a good looking Colt M16A2 yesterday at a pretty good deal. Unfortunately, it was on a Form 4 so I'll be waiting for a couple months. If anything else comes along at a right price, I would certainly look at it.

I sent off a form 4 in a priority mailer on 3/16.  In the past my credit card is debited in 48 hours.  3/25 and there has been no action.  Good luck.

I mailed one 3/2 and the check posted 3/10, but times have changed?  I may pick up a license in 8 months and resubmit it to clear in a day, because this whole thing has gotten out of hand.  There is no logical reason form 3's clear in a day or two and form 4's are pushing a year?
