That's insane, I can see labor day weekend could have a part of it. They only have so many that do the processing and some might have taken their time off prior to the weekend others on labor day and they just now have a full force again to do the processing.I purchased a new bolt action carbon hunting rifle and filled out the paperwork on the 30th. I am still #485 on the list. I have never ever seen it take this long, regardless of queue size. What exactly is taking them so long to work through the queue? What part is not fully automated?
I personally feel like this is an indirect way to introduce a waiting period.
Do they do them on Sundays ? I've heard they work on them saturdays as well.
