That is a LONG one... Was there a problem? or had you checked? Time is #1 issue who is leading is a distant second. NFA back in the 80's was a thing of big time collectors and a few who knew you could have them. Those of us who had NFA did not take them to ranges as the problems form crowds and local LE's who where very hard to convince you legally owned a mg or suppressor for that matter. Plus the fact that most people thought ( those who understood you could buy a a NFA item ) that you where going to get ATF agents coming to your home all the time to inspect you. I have had the ATF show up to my home one time but it was amazingly not NFA related. Over the years wait time have gone up due to more people buying them and the ATF only having about 20 or so inspectors to clear the applications though they have added some extra ( temp ) help this year.
