So first thing hello guys.. second thing had my interview with my inspector little over 3 weeks ago. I have all my paperwork in order and am just waiting now.. just curious is there a way to decode your last 5 digits of your number of license so I can check it on ffl ez check. I have a number on my ffl checklist but not sure if this is part of it or just curious if I need to grow some patience haha:smile:

Also am home based for now gonna be building shop in the future what are some of the best distributors u guys work with and also who has best prices. Looks like Williams shooting supply is highly recommended from what I have read. And Lipseys as well but am always looking for advice. Thanks guys

Just be patient little one... :)

The holidays slow things up, but 4-6 weeks is normal. Your IOI probably told you about when you'd get it.

It seems every inspector is trained about the same but industry Industry Operations differs some from region to region.

When my inspector came for an interview she was carrying a large packet. She first inspected my premises. We sat and talked tor another hour, had a cup of coffee and then she pulled out the Federal Regulations book. She went over it in detail and then asked if I had any questions. After that, she discussed a couple items on my application. One question was about hours of operation. The other was about storage. She made a few hand notations and then pulled out my license. She asked me to sign and date it, shook hands with me and wished me success.

I was an 01-FFL when she left that day.

If you have been waiting since your interview, there had to have been a reason. The interview is normally the final step in the process. I'd probably call Industry Operations and have a chat with them about their procedure.

It's been a 4-6 week wait for quite a while, the application is reviewed by a supervisor before being submitted. At least in the three regions I'm familiar with.

Heck, I went through a change of premises in the same region last year. It was almost like starting over but when the inspector came to have a look at the new place she had my new license with her.

The only time I had any wait was with a previous license renewal. They sent me a letter saying that they were backed up and that the letter was good until I received my renewal. One distributor balked and said they weren't sure if they could honor it so I called Industry Operations. The lady at ATF recognized me and said, Oh I know you, I see your name all the time. She said, we are really backed up but for you I'll get it right out to you. I had my new license in 2 or 3 days. It kind of surprised me. I thanked her for her kindness. I have always had good relations with ATF in the St. Louis office. I know though one region over from me in Kansas City, they aren't as nice to work with.

Still, I don't think it hurts to a call with any questions.
