Upon filling out the application I notice that I have to send a copy to the local Chief LEO. Is it to the local city PD or County Sheriff?

I sent mine to my Sheriff, got it no problem in about 5 weeks. The Sheriff did call and chat a bit since it was the first one he had seen since taking office, he thought it was cool

I handed a copy to the police chief (easy to do in a town of 1200 people). ATF didn't seem to mind. I'd probably say give it to the chief if you live in town and the sheriff if you live out of town.

It depends on your states laws, as an example in Oklahoma the Sheriff is the ranking LEO in a county, over any local PD's.

If you have a local Police Chief send the letter to him...otherwise use your county sheriff.

I really don't think it matters as far as the ATF is concerned, as long as whoever (CLEO) you send it to doesn't call the ATF with a reason why you shouldn't have a C&R.

I just renewed.

I simply handed the renewel form copy to the Chief of Police in my town.

If you called the police, who would you call? That's who you should probably send it to, whoever had jurisdiction in your area.

In most cases the Sheriff.

I sent mine by certified mail with a signed return receipt to the Police chief.

So anybody have any idea of the average amount of time it takes to get the license after you submit it? I'm 10+ weeks in since filing for it and waiting to get some feedback from ATFE.

I got mine in 5 weeks a few months ago......

My original license took 16 days, from mailbox to mailbox.

It's been 7 days now for the renewal. Nothing yet.

10+ weeks is a long time... Have you called them?

Typically whoever would sign your Form 4.

Oh wait.. you live in California. j/k


Sheriff should work just fine.

I sent mine in around August of last year. It took about 3 and a half months to get the license back.

I guess they were bogged down, what with the AWB repeal.

Sheriffs office should be good

Guess that moves up on the things-to-do list.

Hey I have an airplane on my avatar too... I hope this isnt a sign that mine will take 10+ weeks
Link Posted: 7/26/2005 12:30:52 PM EDT
I thought that including a line stating the it was a collector's license only, and that it would not make me a dealer, and that the notification I was sending him required no action on his part, was not a bad idea.

That's the way mine went. They just have to be notified that you're applying, nothing else. That is to say, they don't have to sign off on it or anything in order for you to get your C&R. You're just giving them the "heads up" that you're going to be a collector.

I gave mine to the Police Chief of Huntington Beach.

Did they call you or contact you in any way? Or do they just file it?
Link Posted: 7/26/2005 11:56:16 PM EDT
My brother in law is a sheriffs deputy. I just gave it to him and he took care of it for me.
Link Posted: 7/26/2005 11:58:10 PM EDT
I changed the address on mine and got it back in less than 2 weeks. Amazing.

Well I called them and they said to give it 90 days from the date the check was cashed.
Link Posted: 8/24/2005 12:37:28 PM EDT
Woo hoo! Blue envelope arrived today!
Link Posted: 8/24/2005 12:43:33 PM EDT
I sent mine to the county Sheriff...
He never contacted me, nor did BATFE... Took approx 90 days for my C&R to show up.

You are only required to "notify" him via the paperwork... No action on his part is needed. He can put it in the circular file if he wants...
Link Posted: 8/24/2005 12:54:29 PM EDT
Maybe so but the one that goes to the BATFE is the one that counts. Our Sheriff is excellent by the way. Has been known to state to local news on film that anyone who qualifies for Class III/ NFA, he has no problem with signing off on paperwork. Needless to say this has not brought any accolades from the local 5th Column his way. Sheriff Beary of Orange County.

I sent mine to the police chief of the city I live in. I went out to dinner with him years ago. He knows who I am. He never contacted me. I just dropped off my renewal app. to him Tuesday.

It took 5 months and numerous calls to get my first license. Several people were having the same problem with a certain individual at the ATF who was handling licenses at the time. We will see how long my renewal takes. It goes to a different office now. Hopefully that's good news.

I bought 9 C&R's in those 3 years of the original license. Disposed of none. Anybody in the double digits?
