    They must be swamped. Going on 2+ weeks after the form4 was submitted and no check cashed yet.

  • dtp replied to the topic Form 4 Trust in the forum Form 4 Questions 7 months ago

    How about this. We put whoever is in charge of cashing checks in charge of managing the FBI background checks?

    Saw your reply Monsterman…. I agree suppressors advertising is working judging by the numbers you show and the ton of youtube reviews I see on them. I still chuckle how I was hesitant at the possible 3 month wait when first getting…[Read more]

    Interesting, has there been a huge surge in applications? I’m still trying to figure how times dropped after the 41f rush eventually and now seem to be near a year again. I’m speculating at this point there may be a surge to get applications in a year before the next election.

  • dtp replied to the topic Form 4 Trust in the forum Form 4 Questions 7 months, 2 weeks ago

    Man, these wait times are getting absurd. Worse than the 41f and previous election. What gives? Have a couple cans in flight, but from early this year. Sounds like over a year wait is the norm now?

  • dtp replied to the topic Form 4 Trust in the forum Form 4 Questions 1 year, 1 month ago

    I don’t know. This is such a dumb game for basically a muffler. But I agree, no incentive to improve. Frankly we’re lucky to have a single examiner in the current climate.

    A criminal can simply get a fuel filter off amazon, while the rest of us wait north of a year for something that keeps our firearms from blowing out our hearing. Notice…[Read more]

    You’re going to bring on the hate of those of us with older cashed dates LOL!!! Congrats on the approval. 🙂

  • dtp replied to the topic Form 4 Trust in the forum Form 4 Questions 1 year, 1 month ago

    I’d like to know too. Got a couple checks cashed mid may and it looks like we have a 3 week window here until lord knows what happens.

    So much work for a metal tube with some pieces of metal with holes in them inside it.

  • dtp replied to the topic Government shutdown in the forum Form 4 Questions 1 year, 2 months ago

    I don’t think that many would have left as I bet everyone thought this would go faster. But the threat of another shutdown I suppose may be a problem. Ugh, at this rate my stamps cashed around 5/16/2018 will probably take a year like the 41f/election hangup. Wish I had a time machine to go back to the days of the horrendous 3 month waits.

  • dtp replied to the topic Form 4 Trust in the forum Form 4 Questions 1 year, 2 months ago

    Until this deadlock is resolved and the ATF is back up. I don’t think there’s any point in buying NFA items. Basically spending your money elsewhere or saving up for a better item seems more logical. Else your $$$ just gets tied up even…. longer…..

    At this point I’d think sellers might start thinking about discounting stamps or eating them…[Read more]

    Anyone else get the mail from ASA basically saying approvals are on hold until the gov shutdown is over? Apparently Bank of America processes the checks, of course that part still works. But paperwork is on hold. 🙁

  • dtp replied to the topic Form 4 Trust in the forum Form 4 Questions 1 year, 2 months ago

    Slight insult to injury. SS will often sit on forms for a month, at least they did the first time I filed. Probably queue’ing up batches to submit in bulk.

    Right now it looks like approval times are ramping up as fast as they were speeding up earlier this year. Something seemed to have happened prior to the government shutdown.

    AFAIK no one…[Read more]

  • dtp replied to the topic Form 4 Trust in the forum Form 4 Questions 1 year, 2 months ago

    I’m having a hard time getting excited about suppressors now that the waits are going way up again for the trusts. As in if I buy another, is it a 7, 8, 9, over a year wait again? This is staying stupid. Without knowing exact numbers, it’s hard to tell if it’s our fault for requesting too many. Or if there is some other reason why times are…[Read more]

  • dtp replied to the topic Form 4 Trust in the forum Form 4 Questions 1 year, 4 months ago

    Have to say it’s a bit disappointing after the 41f rush and elections that approval times are still north of 7 months for the trust folks. Better than a year I suppose, but has it always been this long for trusts?

  • dtp replied to the topic Form 4 Trust in the forum Form 4 Questions 1 year, 4 months ago

    Nope, to the back of the line and add one more month to your wait for asking.

  • dtp replied to the topic Form 4 Trust in the forum Form 4 Questions 1 year, 7 months ago

    Yeah, it’s looking like things settled at a 8 month duration for trusts after the 41f and election scares. Seems like it should be much better than that, but I guess it’s better than a year plus. *sigh*

    Frankly I think it’s intentional to keep spur of the moment CoD boys from buying to try to be silent death.

  • dtp replied to the topic Form 4 Trust in the forum Form 4 Questions 1 year, 10 months ago

    This is what bugs me. I have 3 prior approvals. But every time I get a new suppressor, the clock seems to reset. I take it the background check part might be optimized if it has already been done? But Numbers such as yours above could simply be from the 41f and Hillary fear backlog being cleared. It just seems like after you’ve been put…[Read more]

  • For those in the know. Am I safe to assume for all Form 4 individual and Trust filers. After you are approved the first time, the turnaround time for your next suppressor still will take the same amount of time? As in someone who maybe has 5 suppressors and has been examined multiple times will still get in line and wait as long as someone who…[Read more]

  • Sort of dissapointing. I still have one in the pipe for a trust. But decided to look to see how others are doing. I don’t understand why there isn’t a serious pickup in approval speed for both trust and individuals at this point? There are now approvals post election, but still slow as dirt? What gives?

  • dtp replied to the topic Form 4 Trust in the forum Form 4 Questions 2 years, 4 months ago
