TFB EXCLUSIVE: NFA Process Modernized For Fast Approvals

(from The Firearm Blog)

Without rule changes, regulation amendments, politicians or legislation, a partnership between the U.S. government and a small private industry group has dramatically changed the process in which National Firearms Act (NFA) controlled items are transferred between individuals and entities. There is now a system in place within the BATFE’s NFA DIvision, that will allow nearly everyone who files a Form 4 to transfer controlled items, such as silencers, a genuine chance at receiving approved forms in a few short months. Alongside the ATF, three silencer industry stalwarts spearheaded the best modernization of the registry in 83 years: Dead Air Armament, GEMTECH and Silencer Shop.

The goal is to have wait times down to a fraction of current levels.

Who knew a government bureaucracy, responsible for controlling and monitoring Title II Class III weaponry would cooperate with both citizens and private corporations to lessen some of the governmental nonsense!?

(I suspect these changes weren’t authorized by the previous administration! – Guffaw  😛  )

(and now for something completely different! – with apologies to Monty Python for using this intro.)

A Judy Update

Judy came through her shoulder surgery yesterday with flying colors.  The next test is navigating today, with the local nerve block wearing off!  She does have pain meds, and the ice jacket (obtained last time through your generosity and kindness!)  Thanks again for your kind remarks emails, good thoughts and prayers! – Guffaw

  1. NFA changes: amazing! Judy’s ‘flying colors’ surgery – not so surprising. After all, it’s what we asked the Lord for, isn’t it? 🙂 Now, onward through a quick recovery!

  4. Prayers sent and positive brain waves enroute for your roommate.
    After having a shoulder surgery years ago, I REALLY hope I never need another one.

    • Thanks, KM!
      HOPEFULLY, this will be it for the shoulder repairs.
      She now has had both rotator cuffs repaired, along with ‘clean up’ of the surrounding areas. This latest also included re ‘beefing up’ of the bicep attachment and grinding down of the collar bone.
      ALL arthroscopically by a former Marine surgeon, who was in both Afghanistan and Iraq supervising other surgeons! She continues to be a Reservist!

  5. Still working my way through PT. It would help if I wasn’t ill so often and missing PT. I hope she has a good run and recovers quickly. Ice and drugs are our friends in this case.

    • Thanks, Jack.
      Indeed. I hope your recovery timetable improves.
      Yeah, she has good pain meds, as well as an ice jacket (provided by the efforts of my terrific blog readers!)
      Unfortunately, with all her other issues (COPD, bronchiestisis, emphysema, heart stuff, chronic back pain and migraines, she has more to do! 😦
