Going the Trust route also allows you to e-file, which gives you a "pending" status that day. If you mail in your application, it is running about 8-9 weeks for them to enter your Form into the system to get to pending status. So it appears e-filing saves you 8-9 weeks of wait.

This is not true, my store has e-filed a number of Form 4s.

Bottom-line: I made a phone call and completed the purchase and paperwork process in less than 5 minutes. No driving to the physical location of the suppressor dealer, no waiting for paperwork in the mail from the dealer, and no running to the post office to return the paperwork.

Now they just need to work on the other 360 days in the backlog.

I have my doubts as to whether it really is going to take time off of the whole process. I think it just goes pending because there is no queue of envelopes to be opened, checks cashed, etc. We will see in a year or so.
