eForm 2.0 Status Update
Posted November 28, 2014
The NFA Branch has been doing a great job following through on their promise of reducing overall wait times; but, the industry has had a taste of what electronic submissions can offer – and we’re excited to get it back! As a result, it’s probably time to post a quick update on the…
Wait Times Are Coming Down!
Posted October 02, 2014
For the last few months, we’ve had a hard time determining exactly how long the wait times were for paper Form 4’s because the ATF was processing forms from a time when we were submitting everything electronically. It looks like they’re finally catching up and we’re seeing…
eForms 2.0 Industry Roundtable
Posted July 22, 2014
This morning, the ATF held their first industry roundtable to discuss plans for eForms 2.0 – which is refreshing since there hasn’t been any reliable information released since eForms first went down in April. Personally, I think the event was useful, and here are the biggest…

I have to admit it. I lucked out. My wife is a lovely self-possessed woman at the height of her field with an unquenchable thirst for adventure and knowledge. She’s also an avid shooter. Or at least, she is now. Don’t get me wrong. My wife has always liked to shot to the extent that […]

Posted May 27, 2014
We’ve been skeptical that anything would actually happen with 41P in June; but, now it seems to be put into writing by the ATF. You can see the new ‘Action Date’ is January 2015 on this page: http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/eAgendaViewRule?pubId=201404&RIN=1140-AA43. Thanks…
Current Status of eForms
Posted May 27, 2014
We’ve spent a lot of time over the last few weeks trying to figure out exactly what the best way is to proceed with eForms being down. The decision is complicated by several factors: 1) If you’ve been watching our ATF Wait Times page, you’ll notice that paper forms have been…
What are we doing about eForms?
Posted April 07, 2014
Since eForms went down on April 4th, we’ve spent quite a bit of time figuring out what to do with our existing submissions. Flash back to the Government shutdown and you’ll remember a similar message that went up on the eForms website asking people to submit forms by paper; and,…
What’s up with eForms?
Posted April 01, 2014
As most of our customers know, we’re big supporters of the ATF’s new eForm system. It’s a huge step forward in several ways – and brings the NFA Branch into the new millennium, with faster processing times and improved traceability of submissions. You can read more…
