My webtv is down, and i'm forced to learn this damn computer... All my contact info is stuck in the webtv... Anyone have the phone number to BATF's NFA branch ? I sent in my paperwork June 19th, and my check was cashed on June 24th. The 90 days is about up, and my patience is running out... I just wanna start calling to pester them.[:D]

202-927-8330 good luck the last time I called the guy was a jerk. Don't call betweek 10-11am. I think that is the jerks slot to answer the phone.

No, he's answered me at 9 a.m., 1 p.m. and just about any other time I've called.

Thanks guys ! I knew it would be faster to ask here, than to dig through piles of paperwork here at home.[:D]

Called BATF today... Woman said Gun & Silencer are "Pending July 17th" What the hell does that mean ? I talked to my C3 dealer last night, and he said he's got about a dozen or so guys still waiting from that timeframe... He also said he just got a form 4 back for a silencer and it only took 4 weeks start to finish... Seems there's no method to ATF's madness...

Pending means that they've started processing it. Now, you're waiting for "Approved". As you say, there is no method to ATF's madness. My M16 was approved during the tail end of the Anthrax BS. My buddy's MP5 was submitted a month before my M16 was and still isn't approved.

The standard response is 90 from when it went pending. I think they have been running a little sooner than that. Mine went pending June 20th and it was approved August 22nd and I picked it up 9/11. I'm not sure when it got to my dealer. The nitwits lost my number and didn't call.

You guys get a MAN to answer the phone? Hell, I always get a woman. And of course they always act like I'm a big 'bother,' After all, who am I to make them move their flabby arm all the way over to the phone and do their job??? BTW, does BATF hire any white people? Not a complaint, just an observation...
