for an update as to my E1 silencer application. Got a very curt and seemingly short tempered woman after about a 20 minute wait. Getting information out of her was like pulling teeth. I stayed polite and cheery but she wasn't having any of it. I had submitted my electronic application for a homemade silencer stamp on Oct. 9, and other than a confirmation that they had received the application, nothing since. I asked if there was anything holding it up. "No, just volume". Is there anything else I should be doing? "No". Any idea when things would start to move? "No". I started to thank her but she hung up on me before I could. Have to guess she was overworked or stressed, because all other phone calls with ATF people have been pleasant and helpful. Lucky me.... So after 3 months on an E1 application, seemingly no progress. A little frustrated and disappointed, thought the E1's moved faster than this.
