    Took legal possession of both a .22 and .223 Gemtech suppressor today. WOOT!!!!

    Mailed in paperwork for them last March and checks were cashed on 4/4/13 and 4/16/13.

    11 months. 11 freaking months. F**K YOU ATF!!!!!!

    Needless to say tomorrow is a trip to Clark Rifles... :)

    That just about matches my times. Bought 4/1/13, sent paperwork 4/3/13, check cashed 4/11/13, called buy the seller that the stamps had arrived 2/10/14 I'm pretty sure they process them in batches.

    I wouldn't be surprised to learn that their NFA processing staffing had been cut to purposely slow things down considering the current administration.

    Actually it's been increased.

    A huge wave of applications following the reaction to Sandy Hook is at the root of this situation in which we find ourselves today.

    I still recall the one I did shortly after their move about 5 years ago. In stock can took 5 weeks. Even 2-4 months was not bad, but getting back up close to a year sucks.
