Some notes: The lady who answers the phone can only tell you that your Form 4 is "pending." Nothing else.
Ask to speak with whoever is handling your serial number. I got ahold of "Robin" and she told me the same.
I VERY politely played dumb and asked her just exactly what that means.
"The FBI has up to 90 days to check out the transfer."
She then said she didn't have any paperwork and was waiting on them.
I don't think these people have much idea as to what, why , or when of NFA transfers, or care. They just shuffle paper.
I try to be very polite, no matter how long I sit on hold, or how many times I have to call. I don't know if that does any
good, but it sure can't hurt. I don't want them to think we all look like the photo from Knob Creek.

I hear you loud and clear. I don't expect everyone running around at the shows and gatherings to look like they just dropped in from a fox hunt in Devonshire, but I don't think I'd be happy having my daughter date some these "wackos".
Along the same lines, do yall remember the segment with Terry Nichols' brother in Bowling for Columbine? Makes you appreciate the thin line the Feds walk between infringing upon someone's rights and protecting the public safety.

Until our move to the Justice Dept., our director was promoted from within the ranks. As of today, we are still waiting for someone to be named to be our new director. That position will be the only political appointee in the bureau. All others come from within.

I RECEIVED NOTICE I HAD INCORRECTLY FILLED OUT THE CITIZENSHIP CERTIFICATION FORM. THEY SENT ME A NEW ONE WITH THE OLD ONE AND INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO FILL IT OUT AND WHO TO RETURN IT TO. WITHIN THREE WEEKS OF RECEIPT OF THE NEW FORM I GOT A CALL FROM THE GUY I PURCHASED IT FROM. IT TOOK 28 WEEKS TO THE DAY FROM WHEN THE CHECK WASH CASHED TO GET APPROVED PAPERWORK.
