    Anyone else have a Form 4 that is taking forever? Mine has been in the pipes since last March 24.

    Imagine if everyone stopped complying with this unconstitutional nonsense. We are literally tax funding the DOJ to fund the ATF to make obvious unconstitutional decisions, and slowly and systemically process our rights and charge us additional tax for what should not be regulated to begin with.

    Resubmit and send in the control number of the disapproved form along with a letter explaining the error. I had something similar happen to a buddy and his form got approved right away.
    they no longer do that... i tried it, trust me... i know from experience, rejected, refunded, resubmitted, re paid, new prints and wait… if you have any nfa items then will recognize the name, straight from the horses mouth

    I don’t know why they can’t send the cards back or just keep them on file.

    Or why they don’t give you a window to modify or fix typo/mistakes before they just reject it… after it’s submitted it’s done, you can’t change anything…

    I think you can send an email with the new control number and the disapproved control number and they may expedite that submission. I have not done this, but seams to be what the reddit users are reporting.

    Read post #162… from the famous Carol herself..

    Again, nope, I tried that… they no longer allow that… unless it’s just my luck I’m the only one that they don’t allow that privilege, which is quite possible considering my luck LOL

    I was referring to the poster that said one of his paper form 4 submissions was rejected and had to refile. I have a friend recently that had the same thing happen and his form 4 got approved in two weeks after resubmitting.

    Now with E forms you have no chance. The sell to us on being quicker was no corrections allowed. You mess up, you resubmit.

    You are Correct sir, I just found that out the other day also, paper form is longer, but they will give you like 45 days to make a correction and send it back… e file is either approved or rejected… that’s all
