It would be interesting to track those in parallel. I have my renewal pending right now. Submitted it a week or so ago. It was marked "accepted" the next business day, and had a NICS number on it the day after that. No movement in the week since, but just seeing that activity in the first 48 hours suggests that renewals are (as one might expect) a much shorter trip.Looking at the application progress thread, the processing times seem to be all over the place. Could this be because the renewal application times differ from the "new" application times (i.e., renewals probably take less time to process)? Should the tracking spreadsheet be revised to differentiate between renewal applications and new applications?
