    Supposedly e from 4s are in the works. But they've been "in the works" for how many years now? At least the form 1s hovering around 3 weeks is nice.

    At least they're improving. A lot of the form 3's are getting done same week compared to the 9 weeks I waited for the two cans I bought before 41F.
    3 weeks I might have to do a few more. What do you mean by 3/29/19: received cover letter? Is it an extra step since the rule change? I know about having to mail in fingerprint cards.

    After electronic submission, they review the form and email a cover letter to attach to the fingerprint cards. It has a bar code number to insure the fingerprint cards get matched to the application. My cards were done on AFIS system. I would think ATF has access and could retrieve them electronically. NOT complaining, just sayin.
