I called up the ATF inquiring about my C&R license. The # for the Licensing Dept puts you directly to the Licensing dept, and I didn't have to speak to the rep for my state.

Currently it appears that once they cash your check, it takes 2 weeks before it is entered into the system. According to the ATF, it would then take 60-90 days to complete the process.
And apparently, there is currently a backlog of applications (is it a surprise at all?)

I wonder how people manage to get it within 3 weeks.

So it looks like an estimate of about 15 weeks is about the max amount of time before you can get the license from the day you mail in the app.

Well I'm still gonna call when I hit 8 wks from the time they cashed my check

I guess they've changed drastically within the past two years. I mailed my application w/ postal money order two years ago, and had my C&R FFL in my mailbox in 13 days. The packet of information arrived even sooner.


Is this related to the ATF offices moving around and reorganizing, or is it the new standard?

It took 2 days from when I clicked "SUBMIT" to order my packet online to when it got in my mailbox.
Then it took less than 5 business days for them to cash the check, but the ATF rep said they DID get my stuff however it has not been submitted for processing. They said it would take a week before it starts processing, which means 2 weeks from the day you put it in the mail box.

I do not know how people are getting their licenses within 3 weeks.

I got my license about two months ago, and it took only 3 weeks. Maybe everyone at the ATF is taking vacation in August!!!
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 10:26:26 AM EDT
still hasn't been processed

I think they know me by name now

Must be the frustration of waiting for my C&R license

I called them up and this time one of the reps said it was keyed in Sept 1 and the status is pending, which means it can be anytime soon or up to 60 days

So today its been 8 weeks since I sent my application in . So impatience got the best of me and I called the ATF. Lady was very nice.....until she told me its pending & I still may have to wait another 45 days and yes I thinks its
Link Posted: 9/11/2005 4:35:32 PM EDT

Hang in there.

UPDATE:

WOO HOO C&R LICENSE ISSUED TODAY! Oh happy day! I should get it within a week.

Taking into account the time it will take for me to get the license, I'd say it took 30 days from when I mailed out the application.

I hate you.

metroplex how many times have you called them?

I'm at 9 weeks now and nothing. They'll be all out of C&R guns by the time I get my license

It must be becasuse I live in NY. They hate NYer's

I lost track of how many times I called them probably at least once every 2-3 days though. I don't think it helped speed it up one bit.

So I guess I have to hate you also.

Just promise me y'all will leave a few of the C&R rifles for me So when I finally get my license there'll be something left for me to buy
Link Posted: 9/14/2005 8:52:39 AM EDT
I'm actually itching to get the dealer sales discounts and not the C&R rifles. So you should know that I won't contribute to depleting your potential supply of C&R rifles.

Ok I'm gonna rant here also I posted this on another thread. Sorry for taking up space. I just gotta rant. Its good therapy

So I decided since its been 11 weeks since I sent my application in I gonna call again. I have to say the people at the ATF are very nice & polite. Of course thats about the only good thing I can say. The first woman I spoke to told me my app was still pending, I said gee I sent it in July13 and the last ime I called at the 8 week mark it was pending then. So she forward my call to an examiner. This woman was very nice also, she tells me that I passed the background check and now it needs to be sent to Brooklyn NY to make sure everything is OK with the county & municipality I live in It must be a New York thing. She says she will fax it over but it still could be up to 30 more days . This is frustrating. And I wonder why is it that so many others get it a couple of weeks maybe a month. If a private sector business was run like these govt entities they would go out go business. If I was an illegal alien trying to get a drivers license I would have it in a couple of hours. Such I should have started this process years ago. Oh well I go crawl back under my rock....

In a previous thread you cried about how a C&R license is useless, why has that changed?
