I received mine in less than a month.

December 19, 2006, 02:27 PM
been 3 months for me so far and nothing yet :(

It can take anywhere from 4 weeks to 4 months....depends on how fast the ATF feels like processing paperwork. Good luck. Make lots of photocopies as soon as you get it, and don't sign the original!!!

You can't fill out the application online.

December 19, 2006, 03:09 PM
He probably ordered the application online.

December 19, 2006, 03:13 PM
okay I ordered the application on line.

Takes about 1 week to get your forms. (could be longer with the holiday stuck in there)

After sending the forms in for the license, how long it takes depends on what area of the country you're in. 2 weeks is the fastest (12 days is the shortest I've heard), up to 3-4 months in other cases. Took 15 days to get mine. They will process your paymet first, before they even look at your application.

I got mine in a shade under 2 weeks. That is probably just about as fast as they come. Others take months; it's hard to tell. Just keep an eye out- the envelope it comes in can easily be mistaken for junk mail and thrown away.

I printed the application form off the website, then mailed it in.

Got my C&R in less than a month.:)

December 19, 2006, 05:08 PM
I believe the stated time is 6 weeks. Mine took 4 weeks. Hang in there Chief!

December 20, 2006, 05:09 AM
Took me 3 weeks.

December 20, 2006, 07:20 AM
Mine took about 5 weeks.

December 20, 2006, 07:22 AM
I received my C&R in about 3 weeks, BIG bundle of paperwork... Like others have said document everything, even if you don't think it is a big deal.

Mine took me 34 business days. I've heard of as short as 8 days and up to "9months and still waiting..." on one of the C&R forums I visited.

December 20, 2006, 07:44 PM
took me 3 weeks to the day after mailing mine off:D

December 20, 2006, 07:46 PM
I think mine took around 5 weeks.

December 20, 2006, 07:56 PM
This topic needs a "sticky" because it gets asked about every other week.

Okay well I received all my paper work filled everything out and sent it all back it went out december 22 They charged my credit card on january the 9th and still today still have not received anything. Has any one ever contacted anybody to see what was going on with their application If so do you have a number to call.

March 6, 2007, 10:10 PM
From what I've seen, if you happen to be mailing yours to the Atlanta office, it is anywhere in the range of 2 weeks to 6 weeks. I've not seen many statements over that around here. My card got charged last week, I'm axiously awaiting the arrival. :D

March 6, 2007, 10:19 PM
took me 15 days

March 6, 2007, 11:46 PM
The length of time it takes to process the application depends on the workload of the agent handling your area. For example, I live in the Dallas area .. and the Agent who does Dallas, also handles Fort Worth, all of North Texas as well as Austin.

You can imagine why it took mine 3 months to get to me.

March 20, 2007, 09:18 PM
I finally just received it I thought some were on here I found a list of the best places to send it to also does it have to be mailed or can it be faxed.

March 20, 2007, 09:23 PM
comming up on 90 days. :fire: :banghead:

Will be calling for a friendly checkup on Monday.

March 20, 2007, 10:10 PM
When I called they told me they wanted 90 days before anybody calls but she checked for me then two days later I had mine. I had to keep trying to call I left messages but never heard back I tried about 2 or 3 times a day for almost a week before someone finnaly answered.

March 20, 2007, 10:21 PM
First one under 2 weeks (10 or 11 days, IIRC).

Second one about 5 months.

March 21, 2007, 01:37 AM
Can be mailed or faxed, either one. Most will accept either, some just want them mailed.

March 21, 2007, 08:18 AM
Took almost 90 days for mine. Relax, it'll get there.
