I received my FFL03 a couple weeks ago. This week I received another envelope with a list of firearms for C&R along with a note saying that the materials were backordered.

I got my packet yesterday with same notes.

There is a small recording pamphlet/book so if I do not plan on buying any firearms do I still need to buy a bound book?

So did you remove the Info Card before you sent? I saw someone talking about this somewhere here, but the most I got out of it was that one member puts his ID over the card.

I received a prompt reply telling me that once my application was pulled from "the bank," they would contact me for a new credit card number. The fact that they have a bank of applications tells me that they are experiencing something of a backlog right now. My application still has not made it out of the bank, as I have not yet been contacted for new payment information.
Update: I received a letter requesting payment by cashiers check or money order. I sent a money order to the listed address in West Virginia. I received my FFL 03 a week ago. Total time with the closed credit card account and request for a new method of payment was approximately 2-1/2 months. My first ammo shipment is scheduled to arrive at my door tomorrow.

it looks everyone is getting the licenses. California is just so screwed up on ammo online purchased ban. IMO, it sounds like those people just find a new way to generate profit for government funding.

My renewal was very similar to this. Checked cleared on 2/21 and renewal 03 came on 4/25.

I called last week and got an email LOA "Letter of Authorization", as I was getting worried. This allows you to use your old license if it expires while waiting on your new one.

They did tell me licenses have been taking longer than normal. Maybe a CA surge.

I had an 03 FFL about 5 years ago and let it expire.

Anyone know if that will speed up, slow down, or have no effect on the process of getting a new one?

how long it takes you guys to renew the COE?
I have filed renew since last week, but it is still in progress. I thought it was fast and it would be renewed in a couple days.

I hope you filed online. They no longer accept main in renewals.
Also you need to upload a pic of your DL for renewal. If not, it will stay in pending status.

My 03 was several months, and my COE was several days. I was very surprised at how fast CA moved, and not at all surprised at how miserably slow the ATF moved, considering their wait time to approve NFA stuff.

I am no expert, but I believe it will make no difference.

My renewal took about four or five weeks. In fact, I misplaced my original not too long ago and sent an email requesting a replacement. I had my replacement in hand in less than 2 weeks

Wow. I sent in my paperwork ~10/25 and received my 03FFL today. I also paid by check but did not note when it was cashed.

I sent in my paperwork for a new license on 10/29 and received my license in the mail three weeks later. The time frames are all over the place.
