I just got out of the FBI background check “black hole”. Some advice:
+ If you have an arrest record but no corresponding disposition on record (i.e., if charges were dropped, sealed, etc.) and your are not disqualified, call the ATF, speak to your examiner, and volunteer to send him/her proof of disposition (usually a sealed certificate that can…[Read more]
It’s infuriating. I had my check cashed 4/16/18 and my examiner said it was sent to FBI in September. What the hell are you doing waiting 5 months before doing a background check? Why the hell are you processing forms submitted AFTER MINE faster?
Similarly, I also have checks cashed from start May 18 to end June 18 and NONE OF THEM HAVE EVEN…[Read more]

Status: Examiner not even assigned
Again, no rhyme or reason why people get approved when they do, it certainly is not first in first out.
My previous approval was done in 279 days since…[Read more]
I have a Form 4 trust that is 230 days since check cashed. I called the ATF today and was informed about the backlogged FBI check. I don’t know how long it’s been there since it was my first time calling. This concerns me as I have Form 4s in the pipe. My previous approval was in March of this year after 280 days, but if the FBI backlog is pushing…[Read more]
