What are the reasons? Because I want one, damn it. But I'm guessing citing the 2nd Amendment isn't what they are looking for.

The gun store put my last quote on all of my Form 4s. My NFA Lawyer suggested "Any Lawful Purpose" for my Form 1.

Just called to check on the status of my form 4 that went pending on 9-7-12. Was told by the person at NFA Branch that it should be approved in March. Ugh.

This website may be a good thing to sticky. There's a fair amount of user-submitted data used to determine probable wait times. They track:

* When forms are submitted to NFA Branch
* When checks are cashed by the ATF
* When stamp goes pending in ATF's system
* When stamp is approved by ATF
* When stamp is received by dealer/individual
* Origin of NFA item (at dealer, Form 3, Form 4, Form 1)
* If the NFA item is submitted as a Trust/Individual

The site predicts when you should receive your tax stamp based on ALL data received as well as data from the last 6 months (which is probably more accurate).

My check to the BATF cleared on 08/20/12 and I received my paperwork with tax stamp on 02/09/13. Approximately 173 days.

Just got off the phone with the ATF - Surefire FA762K stamp that went pending on 9-7-2012 was approved on 2-16-2013. Now just gotta wait for snailmail (aka USPS) to get the stamp to my dealer.

Have a SWR Spectre II that went pending 2 weeks after the 308 can. Hopefully that approval is a week or so away.




By the way, 2-16-2013 was a Saturday. NFA Branch works Saturdays???? Whodathunk...

I would say a trust is probably the way to go even if you don't have wife and kids. In some cases, it is the only way to go if your police chief won't sign off on the form. Just make sure you have some trustworthy people you can add as a trustee though you can even set up a trust with only you as a trustee, if you want.

I would love to have a trust, but I'm not shelling out 1 to 2 grand for one.

Depends on your state & the lawyers.
I've check into trusts a few times & all were near a grand for an attorney to set one up. :wall:
