I'm sure this makes too much sense, but does the $200 tax go to the NFA office's budget? Or does it go to a general fund, from where it probably goes to pay interest on our foreign loans? You'd hope that an office that generates $X/year in taxes would be automatically eligible for up to $X/year toward their operating budget. I wonder what the cost of processing one of these forms is...About 2 yrs ago, they beefed up the staff.
With budget cuts all around, etc, should be interesting if the 4-6+ months become status
quo for now.
Awesome app! Thank you for thisNFA wait time calculator. Given the date your check was cashed or the date your application went pending, info about what type of form you filed, etc, it gives you the probability of your stamp coming in future months. If you try the calculator, let me know if it gives you any trouble.
Why does it need to know the caliber? That's not relevant to the transfer time.
Sorry if this is a double reply -- I thought I replied earlier, but I don't see it now.Why does it need to know the caliber? That's not relevant to the transfer time.
You can run a report at nfatracker and sort by examiner and see their average approval times.Sorry if this is a double reply -- I thought I replied earlier, but I don't see it now.
Caliber is there because an earlier version of the calculator was showing links to subsonic ammo and I wanted to narrow the links down to the right caliber. I should probably replace the "Caliber" drop down with one for "Inspector", which could figure into the calculation. I haven't yet done the math to see how significant the particular inspector is. Some people say it makes a difference.
Just because you don't have the possibility of an extra delay because of the FBI doesn't mean a trust will go through faster at the ATF. They all seem to run around the same speed. My last can on a trust took 6 months, right in the same window with all the other transfers I saw people talking about that were submitted at the same time.Another time consuming thing is your finger prints go off to the FBI for processing and that takes time, another advantage of a trust.
