A few comments on your post...
you can pick up most of the ATF forms at the following website: http://members.blueribbon.com/~danbrew/docs. BTW, it *does* matter where you get your fingerprint cards. You need to use the set the ATF provides - the box marked ORI, for originating agency, is filled in with ATF, Washington DC. If you get cards from your local cop shop or anywhere else, the FBI will send them to the agency in the ORI box when they finish their check. And your local Sheriff may or may not toss them in the trash. In any event, the folks at ATF will *not* receive them and your transfer will sit and sit and sit.
