Last summer I had to wait six months to get four SBS shotguns approved... for a police department. NFA said they received only 2 of the 4 apps, which made no sense because we faxed them all at once with a cover sheet saying how many pages, etc. Then followed by mail. I think it just a paperwork glitch, everybody we dealt with was real nice and anxious to get it resolved.
“Nine-tenths of tactics are certain, and taught in books: but the irrational tenth is like the kingfisher flashing across the pool, and that is the test of generals. It can only be ensured by instinct, sharpened by thought practicing the stroke so often that at the crisis it is as natural as a reflex.” ~ T. E. Lawrence
