Alright guys - I've heard a myriad of responses from all kinds of people, and I'm tired of the shit.
"You'll see it in 4 months."
"Oh yeah, how do you know?"
"I had a friend that ordered his..."
"So, he got his in 4 months..."
"What, exactly, did your friend order, and what state does he reside? Any clue as to his situation (Family Trust vs. fingerprinting/Sheriff)?"
"He got a machine gun. He's in Oregon."
"Thanks - you've been really helpful, as the only correlation that seems to be present, is the fact that your friend applied for an NFA item, in another state, for something that I haven't a clue as to what you're talking about. *Machine Gun*, lol..."
This is what I'm talking about ^... I'd like some real-world answers. I've used the NFA "When will my stamp go through" chart, but it's varied wildly, as much as the answers that I've gotten.
Facts, for your consideration:
I haven't called yet - it's been only a short while.
Short while = I bought the Suppressor and paid the stamp at the gun shop at the same time.
I was fingerprinted and had my local Sr. LEO sign off, and returned all of my paperwork to the gun shop to be mailed off (this is what they wanted - I thought that I could do it myself?) on last Thursday (5-28-11).
I've never been denied a firearms purchase, etc. (someone said that supposedly, if you've been popped and denied a purchase, it'll take longer. I've never heard of this.)
So, what do you Class III people think? I had planned on this thing taking around 3 months. With TN being my residence, and the gun shop that I do business with really knowing their Class III stuff (no bungling of paperwork, etc, which is why I go there, for the no-nonsense attitude and quality of customer assistance), I was hoping to be in the ballpark of 3 months from the time of paperwork filing. Too hopeful?
