I submitted my paperwork on 12/17, and yesterday rec'd a big ole packet from the ATF containing state regs, approved firearms list, how to spot suspicious folks flyer, etc but, no license!?!?!?!?

Should I have received the license already? Was this left out of the packet? or is this the normal routine?

Thanks

Blitz

ETA- Thx guys

ETA-C&R Arrived 2/4 along with 2 additional info packs.....that makes 3!!!

ETA-2/8- 4th package arrived. WTF

That's how I got mine too, I think I got my license 2-3 days later.

The license and the publications packet are sent from two different locations. It's very common for the publications to arrive first.

I got two packages of identically the same stuff. What is that all about??? Seems like a waste since those packages are pretty heavy as far a postage is concerned.

That's the .gov using your tax money wisely. They don't care.

Don't worry son . . .

This is a very good sign . . . .


First -- your "package" will arrive -- regs, booklet, etc.

Second -- your license will arrive

And third -- your new map will arrive . . . . . . . . . .

You know . . . your new map . . . . .

the map to the POOR HOUSE ! ! !


Believe you me ! ! You'll be moving there REAL soon ! ! ! !

I had this very same thing happen to me when I got my license. I thought the ATF was screwing with me, then it showed up in the mail a week later........and now surplus rifles abound

when its time to renew does ATF send me a renewal form to fill out or do I have to resumbit the standard form. Mine expires in september of this year and first time renewing so just wondering.

Uh oh. That means that I'll be without a license for almost a month (if the 45days turnaround is average). I don't know if I can deal with the withdrawl.

My C&R took three weeks mailbox to mailbox.


I only got one set of books, but I got another when I changed my address 6 months later, and then an updated book recently.

I never got an info packet, just my license.
Should I tell them to send me one?

Post 1776!

Imagine what you would get in the mail is it wasn't for the paperwork reduction act!

I got my books about a week before the license. I got the renewal a couple of months before mine expired.
I hope the renewal goes quicker than the original application. I have to remember to send out copies of the renewed license after I get it.
