    Just got word, the examiners at the ATF NFA branch are 90% sure that they will not be working if FedGov shuts down in a few weeks.

    ...well duh. It's a price I'm willing to pay - besides, NFA is always a waiting game. I hope your business continues strongly. :)

    Bubbles is referring to the possible federal government budget crisis that seems to be the big news story of the moment. If a budget agreement isn't reached by March 4th, many federal programs will go on hold.

    FedGov will get a 2 week extension before the real possibility of a "non-essential" service shutdown takes place. After that 2 week extension it is expected that the parties will have had their temporarily satisfying "fright" and work out some sort of exchange of budgetary prisoners to approve a final budget only 4 months after the FedGov fiscal year.
