    I get it however, it's the process unfortunately. It could be the opposite and be denied. I'm always a glass half full guy. Once it's hear for u, it won't matter as much. Trust the Process.. Your time should be Thursday/Friday.
    A right delayed is a right denied.

    Sorry I am extra bitter over this today as I refused to get an HQL and switched my purchases to long guns in the aftermath and will have to wait for my HQL to be approved after my W&C is approved.

    Today I helped someone who would never be able to navigate an online portal to simply verify all of the information already demanded by the state to “not disapprove” a person from purchasing an additional firearm. This is in no way constitutional.

    Once you have your first "Not Disapproved" email and pick up the first regulated firearm, file this and POOF- no more need to wait 30 days between purchases.

    Many FFL's will notarize the letter for you.

    Nature of collecting activities can be ... Collecting.
    If practical, save a stamp and drop the letter in an envelope directly at the door at MSP LD)
    Oh wow that’s awesome, thank you for the heads up! Wanted to get 2 for the house glad I don’t have to wait. Do you get a letter back saying your officially registered or anything?

    Email will follow with the "Letter" approving you as a Designated Collector.

    Then, you'll notice a block on the 77-R where you check "Yes" as a Collector and the 30 day infringement (wait) disappears.

    Its says incomplete on most of the remaining checklist items with a couple not applicable. The status definition says:
    Incomplete - have not received documentation from applicant
    I did not get an email requesting anything so is this normal?

    How many threads are you going to ask this in, this makes the third one. Asking the one time, in the thread you started about your expungement would be enough.
