How long is the wait to get the C&R license now?

Anyone know how long it is taking now to get the license? If I remember correctly it took about 30 days to get mine six years ago. My friend has been waiting over six weeks and still no license. Is the partial government shutdown affecting the time it takes for a new license? I renewed mine the same day he applied for a new one and got my renewal in less than 30 days.

Yes. The licensing division is more or less shut down from what I have heard. ATF is part of Justice who are furloughed.

Back in March I applied and got mine in about 7/8 weeks. Around 3/20 to about 5/15 or so.

Not accounting for the shutdown the waiting times are usually around 2-4 months depending on the weather.

They're not completely shut down because my credit card was charged a week after sending the form this month.

Credit card processing is done by a bank, not ATF

I renewed last month It was right around 30 days.

Just curious: are you saying a bank opens mail to ATF's PO box, then processes the contents sufficiently to then process the credit card payment?

I know BATFE Form 4’s go to Atlanta for CC processing, then forwarded to Martinsburg for NFA processing. I assumed the same kind of thing for FFL 03 processing.

Perhaps I’m wrong

Maybe they use a payment processing center, like hospitals do? They receive and process payments and then forward the info to their client.

That would be my assumption Form 4 ‘s are handled that way. Form 1’s go directly to Martinsburg for processing

I believe mine is a Form 7. I did send it to Atlanta, GA. Since there's potentially sensitive information included, I was surprised that a bank or other payment processing center was the envelope's first stop.
