I just received mine - took 6 weeks from the time the check was cashed. However I had made around 20 class 3 transfers thru the years - if that makes a difference.

Mailed my check on Feb. 18 and received the related books/paperwork approx. 3 weeks ago. I still haven't seen the license however. I agree, they must be swamped. Based on Kyle's time frame I'm guessing mid May.

Wolfer,

Mine took less than 30 days! That was in Nov of last year though...

Make sure you include the "Certificate of Compliance". I did with my C&R app, and it went fast. I did not include it with a transfer I am doing, and just got rejected for not having it! mad.gif

Time to restart the damn clock again....

The "certificate of complaince (citizenship)" is another federal stroke of genius. The Al Queida would never think to faslify such a document because they could get into BIG trouble. Thus we are all safer, so whats a little delay.

A helpful tip: By LAW, the BATFE has 60 days to act on your application. I don't have a citation handy but take a look in the CFR's (regulations) in the "green" book if you have one, or on their web site.

A few years ago when I first applied for my license, I waited and waited and still had nothing on about day 58 or 59. I emailed ATF (they are extremely good about responding to email BTW) and POLITELY inquired as to the status of my app., citing the relevant CFR. They emailed me back saying that it had been approved and I should have my license very soon. Sure enough, it was in the mailbox two days later! Either a heck of a coincidence or else my email helped get things moving a bit!

HTH!

Prior to 9/11 my C&R took about 3 weeks...after that, the renewal took 5 weeks...just like the transfers after 9/11...way too long on everything that goes thru government. wink.gif

Got my package of Offcial documents on Saturday from the ATF but dont see anything saying "C&R LIcense" Is that sent under seperate cover? Good thing it didnt come or I would have been tempted to pick up the C&R 28 Overstamp I saw at the Dixie Gun show Saturday morning.

Roland, they'll send your FFL in a separate envelope than the books and other forms. If you've already received your packet of books, your license can't be far behind. IIRC, you'll get your FFL from Atlanta, and the books from one of the other BATF locations (I never bothered to look at the return addresses of each envelope.)
