Default Anyone Else waiting own a NFA tax stamp?

I've been waiting for mine for 6 1/2 months now. When you call the ATF status phone number, the automated message says that they are averaging six months for turnaround. At the time I submitted my application the same message said 3 to 4 months. When you speak to an agent to find out the status, all they will tell you is that it is "pending".

This basically reinforces to me that giving a limitless timeframe for background checks own standard gun purchases would be an absolute disaster for anyone who wishes to purchase a firearm. It's pretty stupid that you have to pay $200 for the right to purchase something that is completely safe and of no danger to anyone, and then wait many many months just to have access to the item. All of this for no reason other than to appease certain political groups.

Ordered another Spectre II just before Christmas, less than 6 months to approved. Ordered another Harvester on S B Sunday, and still haven't gotten it. The wait is a little easier with so many already in the safe, but I'm starting to get antsy.

Last one was 7 months, I got it back in July. With the new rules in place removing Leo sign off many more are now eligible so expect the waits to be much longer.

This is me. I have absolutely no need for it, but I like to bust squirrels in the neighborhood and have a few folks that like to bitch. Completely ok by law and HOA (I am el presidente) but they like to bitch. I am going to bust them either way, but would rather not listen to them bitch.
