Wait times are jumping way back up for individuals from 4 months to 7+. From what I’m seeing is the FBI background check is what is stalling a lot of approvals. You think this is intentional ? Anyone know why they are increasing while they just received millions of dollars in additional budget to speed things up ?

what you are seeing is the difference from when they had all the contractors working before the Thanksgiving holiday and the direct reflection of how nothing got done till after the first few weeks of Jan...nothing new, happened last year....those trackers are a joke anyways .....

Looks like I’m no longer just “pending” and I’m now awaiting FBI Background check which many people on NFAtracker have recently received as well and have been stuck on the background check for an additional 6 months for some people. [smilie=042.gif]

I have a spotless record and a CWP so I think being a green card holder is what got me the delay as my background checks are also delayed a day or two for the same reason

your pending til the exact minuet they stamp it approved, all of the forms are pending after the data entry ( check cashing ) phase till it's stamped ...thats how it works, there are no levels of pending [smilie=011.gif]

That’s no longer the case unfortunately , a couple dozen people have now only receive waiting FBI background check , and no longer just pending. There are several threads on the topic, some people reported being stuck on pending on FBI background check for over additional 1-6 months. A few case reported a person has been stuck on for 9 + months.

I called twice to confirm that I’m waiting on the fbi background check and not just “pending “

Ok believe whatever you read on the internet =:wvr

I speak to someone at NFA branch almost weekly, bottom line ...you're pending till you're approved !, whether your form is sitting on someone desk waiting for an error to be corrected or you're still in line, or waiting on FBI

and I'm sure they love answering the phone on a daily basis from every PEST with an item in JAIL, don't you think if there was some sort of problem they would contact you first ?? I argued with some know it all on UT about how rumors of people being pest's and keep calling to inquire status, each call is logged and I'm sure someone might bury your paperwork once they seen how many times a pest has called.

I'm gonna start getting all my info from NFA tracker [smilie=011.gif]

:ber .

Be careful bro , some people in one of the other forms were talking about the potential of a security breach at silencer shop would be devastating since they have your information plus fingerprints .....wow just wow

There was also talk on Uzitalk about how backed up they were some guy didn't even get his DocuSign email for like 8 days after you place the order
