Just sent off my 2nd form 4. This new hobby is going to be expensive I think. :smile:

Expensive, but strangely satisfying :whistling:

I just mailed off another Form 1 for a second SBR. Must keep something in the queue.

Right about that. Just ordered another can for stamp #3.

Once that snowball starts rolling..... :)
I've got two pending going on 5 months (#s 13 and 14, for the Sterling MK-V) and looking for my next, maybe a 7.62 can? But my safe is running out of room. I love when they say it'll hold 35 guns, and it looks full after like 12.!?

Stamps should show up soon.

What 7.62 cans are you looking at?

NFA isn't cheap, but is a really good area to be interested in.

I'm assuming the form 4 is for a suppressor??

#2 is for my MG. #3 is for a suppressor for the MG.

Thinking about a Saker 7.62 so I can QD it and use it on my M-16A1 also. With a 12" bbl, it can use a bigger suppressor. I've got 5 different manufacturers of suppressors, and I'm very happy with my SilencerCo, but I'm also looking at Surefire (I don't have one of those yet).

The first thing they do is cash the check. I think turn around times have been around 6 - 7 months lately? You can call and check the status. It's actually not a bad idea. If the transfer goes into problem status and nobody gets notified you could be stuck in limbo and never know it.

My dealer got in my Bowers can yesterday. I stopped by to rub it and absorb its magical powers. It took 7 weeks for SOT to SOT transfer. Now to send in the form 4 and wait some more. :cry:

#2 is for my MG. #3 is for a suppressor for the MG.

Love it:beer:

Maybe one day I'll be a philatelist as well....

I am hearing reports of transfers as low as 80 days. My last one was 4 mo. I am trying to resist taking the plunge for another one. I have 2 other projects I need to get done first, a semi MG-42 and a M2 .50 semi. The plan would then be to sell the semi 1919 and get a rock and roll version. I hope to have the 2 semi's done and running by the end of summer.

My dealer just called. He has my form 4 back. Heading over there now to get my Mac. Only took about 80 days for the transfer. They are getting quicker.

I'm envious of all here. Just have never delved off into that strata yet. But after I read the story below, I'm giving some thought into getting a Class 2 SOT. I am searching for the right path to follow in getting it. Regrettably, I let my NRA membership lapse years ago, got tired of their constant badgering for money all the time, then turning around and giving guys like McStain and Dingy Harry an A rating on guns. If anyone with knowledge of this endeavor cares to enlighten and NFA hopeful, I would forever be grateful.
