I just plunked the money down for a SilencerCo Specwar 556K (shorty can) on closeout via Capital Armory. I'm submitting the paperwork on Monday to the BATFEIEIO.

It looks like most Form 4's are taking a year or so. What's the going bet right now?

    Have you had one before?   If so, it will be quicker, but there are a helluva lot of applications now.  Last one, about 10 years ago, took about three months.  First one took about 7-8.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.

    My guess is early 2020, still waiting on my form 1 for my 30 cal, that I mailed back in December '18
