Just found out that my application was placed on problem status because of the color of ink that my dealer used to sign the form was not correct (red). My examiner is Sandra Snook. Funny thing is I have another that was approved by her that is signed in red ink.

I would call her back and tell her the directions do not specify which color:

From the Form 4 directions from the ATF website:

The following is from page 3,
Section 2. Preparation of Application
Parge g under section 2.
http://www.atf.gov/forms/download/atf-f-5320-4.pdf

g. Signatures. All signatures required on ATF Form 4 must be original in ink on both copies.

When did you send your form?

(JW cause she is working on mine )

I just got off the phone with Sandra and she insists it is wrong despite my quoting the forms instructions. So my dealer is going to have to resign the application in blue of black ink only. I guess this is going to be a new unwritten rule. Beware.

My application was sent in April and went pending May 14.

My first reaction was ah, bureaucracy at its finest. My second reaction was why would your dealer use red ink? Flamboyant personality?

He probably uses red to sign copies of his FFL for distribution, so he can tell it is an original and not one somebody xeroxed.

Red is not allowable in contract law situations, the government normally conducts business in blue or black ink.
