Wife and I are moving end of October intrastate. We have the new address (but haven't signed the lease yet, but will in a few days). When can I submit an address change, how long does it take, how does it affect buying and using my C&R until a updated one is issued?

27 CFR 478.52:
§ 478.52 Change of address.
(a) Licensees may during the term of
their current license remove their business
or activity to a new location at which they
intend regularly to carry on such business
or activity by filing an Application for an
Amended Federal Firearms License, ATF
Form 5300.38, in duplicate, not less than
30 days prior to such removal with the
Chief, National Licensing Center. The ATF
Form 5300.38 shall be completed in accordance
with the instructions on the form.
The application must be executed under
the penalties of perjury and penalties imposed
by 18 U.S.C. 924. The application
shall be accompanied by the licensee's
original license. The Chief, National Licensing
Center, may, in writing, require
the applicant for an amended license to
also file completed ATF Form 7 or ATF
Form 7CR, or portions thereof, in the manner
required by § 478.44.
(b) Upon receipt of a properly executed
application for an amended license, the
Chief, National Licensing Center, shall,
upon finding through further inquiry or
investigation, or otherwise, that the applicant
is qualified at the new location, issue
the amended license, and return it to the
applicant. The license shall be valid for the
remainder of the term of the original license.
The Chief, National Licensing Center,
shall, if the applicant is not qualified,
refer the application for amended license
to the Director of Industry Operations for
denial in accordance with § 478.71.

Yep, that's the form. It seems like it was less than a month, IIRC. No longer than getting your license in the first place.
