    I called these guys to check status of my can and was told, "pending". As you can imagine, it was not the most friendly conversation I've had. Regardless, have any of you guys received a different response, were you given any kind of useful information? Kinda feels like a waste of time calling to find out what I already knew.

    no shoot, thanks for your time

    why bother having the department that answers phones and says:
    1. what serial number?
    2. name on application?
    3. pending (at which time you'll ask, "any chance of a timeline"?
    4. no

    I guess we've been paying too much taxes and they need to spend that extra money on useless salaries.

    We don't need any less of them working there until the hearing protection act gets adopted

    They have that so that you can make sure it was received. Since everything is by paper they can't look up your application and tell you where are are in the pile of forms on the auditors desk.

    I get it. I just had to whine a bit. It's the Federal version of the DMV, unpleasant.

    You will either get pending or approved.

    I called about a month ago and asked what the time frame was and the person told me it was nine months. I told him I had been told by a dealer that the time frame would be two months or less as things were going to be computerized. He told me that he doubted that seriously .

    we can only hope that one day congress gets off their ass and passes something!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    :rolleyes:

    Guberment workers, takes 6 to do a 1 person job and takes 5 times as long to do it because of all the forms, then filing, checking rules and procedures, then creating more procedures, what a joke

    When I did mine, I called & they said they'd received my form. I kinda knew that because my check had been cashed. What I inquired about a time frame, they said "We're working on forms received in (month) now".
    That at least gave me an idea of my situation.
    I worked in a telephone support job for a while. I can say with certainty that the attitude of the caller heavily influences the attitude of the person who answers the phone.

    Just called again to check status and ask what application dates are being processed now. She said August and September. I will assume she means of 2016. My check was cashed 5/19/17. Looks like the accelerated wait times have yet to take place.

    You know every time someone calls it just slows the whole process down for everyone right?

    The person that answers the phone does not know when things are being approved most of the time. We are seeing approvals from March and April. However there are also some coming in from October and November. So at the moment it seems like they are not going in order.

    Yes sir, the reason I called was to ask which dates were being worked to get an idea of where they were. Now, as you can see from Jeremy's post, that may mean nothing anyway. It will be a long while before I call back, if ever, because the only thing I can begin to trust that comes from it would be, "approved", and when that happens, I expect I'll get an email or phone call from Silencer Shop or Cross Hair Tactical, where it's going.

    Did you file as a trust or individual?

    Just curious. Individuals and trusts with only 1 trustee seem to be coming back faster at the moment.

    How’s it coming with your companies proposal to the ATF to streamline the procedure using electronic forms?
