I sent in my FFL renewal in April

and BATF hasn't cashed the check yet. My current license doesn't expire until the first of July, but that's just a few weeks away. Is it time to call them and see if there's a problem?

I think so.
ATF has always cashed my checks within days of receiving it.

I called them; they've received it but it's still pending a background check. They said if I don't get it by July 1 to call back and they'll send me an extension letter.

It takes longer to get a renewal than a new license?
Mine only took 5 weeks last year...

I had no idea they would need to run a new background check for a renewal; I would have thought that their database would be automatically updated if there were an "event", like a felony conviction.

If that doesn't happen, an FFL holder (of any type) could be convicted of a serious felony, and still retain their license until renewal? Doesn't sound right...

Were you a bad boy during the past 3 years?

Good question...
  1. I got a speeding ticket last year, and on another occasion one for no seatbelt.
  2. I am a Republican delegate -- but just at the congressional district level, not state or national.
  3. I have said on a couple of public forums that Eric Holder ought to be in prison.
  4. I gave money to the Ron Paul for President campaign.
I'm screwed, aren't I?

I called them again Tuesday to get an "extension letter" and the girl (never called me "Sir" this time but sounded like a real person instead of a droid like the last guy) said they sent on Sunday. I asked about the check never clearing and she told me the correct check number and said to check again on 4/27, that they might have run it as an electronic transfer instead of a check. Sho' nuff.

The FFL came in the mail today. And it has a little card in the corner that you can cut off and carry in you wallet (not sure what that's good for)

Does it have all the license information on it, and a place for you to sign it. Don't remember one on my last renewal. I wonder if distributors will accept it for out of state C&R sales? Could be handy at Knob Creek instead of carrying a handful of copies.

I never got that 'little card in the corner that you can cut off and carry in your wallet'. I have no idea what it is for, they must have started that after I got my renewed license late last year ... My renewal took seven weeks, whereas normally in the past it took less than two weeks.
