Searched all over and can't find it online. Any suggestions? I just realized that my license expires tomorrow and the ATF never sent me a renewal application.

Call or email them on Monday. I ruined my original renewal form and after emailing them I had new forms in a week.

If it is expired, you will have to reapply for a new one again, like the first time. There is no "grace period" to renew an expired one.

That's what I was afraid of. I think I'll just let it go then.

Give them a call. I did the same thing last year and they faxed me a renewal form and I mailed it back in the same day. As long as it was postmarked before the expiration, they were happy.

I don't remember her name but she sounded to me like a beautiful black woman and was as nice as can be.

It was funny, I told her how pleasantly surprised I was at the courtesy and professional customer service (from tha BATFE )and she laughed and said..."I hear that all the time "

I did leave out a couple of facts.

I filed for a change of address in August. I had heard nothing from the BATF and called them on Tuesday or Wednesday of last week. They said the new license was on its way to me. I stated that alot of good that would do, it expires on Saturday. They said they'd send me a renewal form. It arrived today! Kind of disappointed as the BATF held onto my license from August through November, knew my address had changed, didn't send me a renewal application until I asked, and the renewal application arrived after expiration. Sure, I probably should have called before last week but it was kind of easy to forget since I didn't have the license in my possession.
