You apply individual or trust?

Individual but seems like most of the last year they have been going through faster than the trusts. Im on another forum thread where its nothing but others comparing there current wait times. 2-3 people posted recently going though in like 3 months. Im in no rush but its just annoying. I reload and been putting off reloading for that particular caliber till it goes through and I have it to test with

I'd want to see proof of 3 months. Sounds like a fluke. I know any gun store you buy from always likes to say 6 months. I think it's to sell and it doesn't sound as bad as 8-9 months.

Speaking of silencers I got a couple dirty *** guns that need some cleaning after range day yesterday.

Best investment Ive ever made a couple years ago was to buy an ultrasonic cleaner!!! I go to the range 2-3 times per week and as an old infantryman have always been **** about cleaning everything right after use. Now I come home and throw 2-4 pistols in at a time or rifle upper or lower and spent brass in a separate bin; go get something to eat and a half hour later everything is spotless.

And agreed ive gonna back and forth on whether or not I believed them but I do believe the majority which is all clearing in under 200 days. Oh and thinking about it Im at 9 months now since the check cleared, 10 months since Ive actually sent it in

I must have misread what u posted my friend. I thought u did not wear any protection while practicing.

Nvr heard of someone listening to an audiobook while shooting. Interesting. Unless u r pulling my leg. Or music for that matter.

You playing with me? Kidding me?? Maybe there is a reason you do that.......if u really do, listen to music or an audiobook while shooting. ??

Very serious. I started about 2 yrs back when i got electronic muffs. They connect via bluetooth to your phone in addition to filtering the gun shots. I remember being surprised too but quickly came to really enjoy being able to listen to music or a book while shooting.

PS, thanks. I was thinking maybe it was good tactical practice of some sort simulating real life. Like you were at work doing somethig or at home/garage/wherever doing something, listening to music or emptying the dishwasher, whatever and then an intruder with a firearm comes in.

So you were "distracted", doing somethig then had to use muscle memory quickly to judge the situation, draw and fire.

That is/was the only thing I could think of why you would be listening to music or a recorded book while on the range.

Thank you PS. 'juss nvr heard of such b4.

That's not a bad wait time now days.

Sounds more like BS than a fluke, like the guy that found a LNIB S&W 3" 66 in a pawn shop for $375, or a Colt Python for $500.
