    Well I am starting to get anxious that my forms may have gotten lost somewhere or something.

    My timeline matched up exactly with adluginb's (bryon sent both in) but mine is still pending.
    1. NFA Item: SWR Spectre .22 caliber
    2. Form Type: Form 4
    3. Transferee Type: Trust
    4. Forms Sent: End of Feb.
    5. Check Cleared: 03-03-10
    6. Pending Date: 04-05-10
    7. Approved Date: 05-03-10
    8. Forms Received: 05-07-10
    9. Examiner Name: Santamaria

    Mines a trust also, and no there is absolutely nothing in my past. Is this kind of time difference normal? Should I be worried that it got lost on someones desk or trash? A couple of friends have mentioned that it could be caused because I have a security clearance but they didn't know silencers were legal either so I don't know about that.

    Mine all took more then three months, it seems to vary quite a bit.

    I was told that every time you call they move you to the bottom of the pile, I have no clue if that is true.

    Possbily a different examiner? Santamaria seems to be quicker than the rest. (Santamaria has handled all of mine as well as jeffsoward's) Average time for ours seems to match what you posted.

    If that was true then adluginb would still be waiting

    Man, I'm glad this is not the case. I'd still be waiting on my first one.
