Default How to check on my C&R license

Sent in the paperwork mid-December. Credit card charged the day after Christmas. I've purchased a couple of guns through an FFL since then, so I'm assuming my background check is clean. Seems this it taking longer than normal, any way to call and see how it's going or do I just sit and wait?

Thanks.

You could call ATF Martinsburg West Virgina. Sorry, I don;t have a phone number for you. Looks like it's 1-866-662-2750.

It does seem longer than usual -- but, they run hot and cold as to speed of processing.

Wow, called and actually got a human on the phone in under a minute!

Says they received the application on January 2, and it's 60-90 days from that date.

It's a new application.

I had hoped for sooner, since I've heard people who applied around the same time frame getting theirs last month.

Actually kinda glad it didn't show up sooner, if it had been in the mailbox same day as my new credit card, that might have gotten ugly fast.

So only four weeks, but already two months for someone before you? Strange. Mine is in process too, have no idea when to expect it.

It varies so much and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason for it.

Hmm...I probably will have to use a normal FFL for Mosin purchases. Does anyone know if the charges are the same with FFLs for CR weapons compared to new? I never bought CR before, i dont know.

FFL 03 License came in today.

Apparently starting threads on the internet speeds up the process.

Just called the number & the woman promises to get it out by the end of
the week. They cashed my check on 1-8. So it looks like calling really
helps to move your application. The squeaky wheel gets the oil. Renewal.

I checked on mine today, by sending an email to NLC@atf.gov (found in another thread). I received a prompt response about 30 minutes later with the date received, current status, and a contact name and number for future inquiries.

Very (surprisingly) responsive.

My application seems to be MIA, i sent the whole thing again today.

For people who had long delays, the application said that most people get calls because of something wrong with the application. Did any of you get calls from the ATF? What was wrong?
