Once your check is cashed, it will probably take a 4 - 7 weeks for your paperwork to be assigned to a reviewer, or as BATFE refers to it....."pending as of ?/??/2010". Ask for the reviewer's name, just so you have it. Don't call for at least a month after the pending date. If you are VERY VERY lucky, you might get approved 4-5 weeks after "pending". It will very likely run much longer. I have one can that is now pending 3 months. Be patient.

the more that people call to check on status the longer it takes for everyone. If your check was cashed - they got it. Wait it out. I'm waiting on 3 right now. and this isn't my first rodeo.

While there is no need to call daily/weekly, they have personnel assigned for the sole purpose of answering these questions. Examiners are not picking up the phones at the NFA branch - so unless you request to speak to one, you are not holding anyone up.

All that I am saying is that it doesn't matter how many times you call. It gets done when it gets done. Cowboy up and wait it out.

I like to call every 30 days from when my papers were received. Basically you expect to see it go "pending" at the end of the first 30 days. At the end of the second 30 days you are probably still pending. At the end of the third 30 days, you should be getting your stamp right about then, so you should be calling to see if you are still pending or if something is up.

That's just how I pass the time...
