    Congratulations. What did you get?

    I've received 3 stamps already, but getting that call to come and get it never gets old.

    This is my first stamp so you know the excitement factor is ten fold! I got an AAC Ti-rant 45. The next few days will be a breeze compared to the last 9 months.

    Very good to hear of a recent turn around time under 1 year unlike what the ATF tells me when I call to inquire on my paperwork.

    It only makes sense that the initial popularity of e-File and the attendant "short" wait of 4 months would lead to an increase in workload for that system.

    That a 4-month turnaround time would be sustainable with no increase in staff seemed unlikely and times would grow longer.

    If the system hadn't been taken offline, it's conceivable that the e-File wait times should grow to be as backed up as the paper ones. If it returns in a refurbished framework then the cycle starts again from a light backlog to increasing wait times.

    Regardless of the type of filing, with an increasing yearly submission rate and no significant increase in examiners, the only thing I can see on the horizon to trim back the average wait time could be the imposition of the individual applicant standards to the Trust, making them subject to LEO signoff, prints and pictures.

    That will kill new ownership of NFA equipment in many jurisdictions, because the CLEOs just don't sign off for anyone, anyway, and they will be even MORE unlikely to do so for a multi-member Trust.

    If that happens then the total number of applicants will drop and maybe shorter wait times would follow. It looks like the post-Newtown wave has passed (from what I saw on NFA Tracker.com) so between now and this summer some leveling off should be seen; depending on any indication that may leak from BATFE regarding how they may be leaning on this Trust proposal of Eric Holder's (i.e., the Presidents' initiative to do "something" about "gun violence" which we know has nothing to do with NFA transfers in the real world anyway.)

    We'll see what happens, but I'm not so sure things are going to level off. MI and WA laws legalizing more NFA guns is bound to unleash a wave of pent up demand...
