Things that make you scratch your head.
I received a Form 5320.20 from BATF in a timely 3 weeks! Disapproved. The examiner used the reason "Proof of ownership needed." Errrr, Ummmmm, it is registered to me by BATF!
Ok. I'm staring at my approved Form 4 in one hand and the 5320.20 in the other. S/N's match. Manufacturer matches, lengths, and caliber. Assuming I'm not missing anything, does anyone have any thoughts on how to proceed?
In the past I've been told that I no longer owned a firearm due to it being transferred 6 months earlier (it was resting in the safe). On that one they emailed me and exchanged information and hopefully that was sorted out. On this form it only states "Disapproved" (big red letters) with the above reason.
I'm going for some quality time on the phone Monday, after lunch.
Anyone else have this happen? What was the resolution?
ps. I've been told by some to do a 5320.20 on everything you might want to carry out of state in a natural disaster. The secondary reason is to verify that BATF has your paperwork in order.
