Re: Officially pending?
I read an article in Shotgun news recently, about the steps required to get approved. The author documented his own experience as it played out. He wrote that after submitting your form, you are suppose to hear something back within 90 days. If you do not receive approval within 90 days, the author said to call the BATF on the 91st day and each day after that relentlessy. The author of the article said that about the 5th day they get tired of your calls and actually make the effort to drop your stamp in an envelope and mail it back to you.
Again, I am only repeating what I read in a "Shotgun News" article.
