The first of February I bought a few suppressors ... a 22LR my dealer had in stock, sent in the form 4 and it went pending in about 2 weeks ... the others he had to order. My SilencerCo Osprey 45 came in late March, I sent in the form 4 on 3/28 and it hasn't gone pending yet!

I just got off the phone with BATFE and they said its taking about 2 months after your check clears for forms to go pending ... anyone else experiencing this?

TIA

    Fall-out from the panic. After the Nov. election and the reactions of the left wing press and polls to Newtown. Gun folks had visions of Finestein, Bloomberg & Co., getting everything banned.

    Look at the state of 22 ammo. You still got scalpers selling it at $60 + a brick.

    From the time you dropped it in the mail until you had your stamp or until it went pending?

    How long before the panic?

    The first form 1's I submitted, I had the stamps back in 62 days ... but that was in 2007.

    If this was a privite busines they would be out of business.

    Just like the IRS 'investigating conseratives' .... or 'fast & furious' ....... or phoney search warrants of reporters .... or erik holder lying to congress ...... the puppet masters are working hard to destroy the USA.

    I meant to say I got the stamp 14 weeks after dropping the form in the mail.
