    Default form 1 went into FBI research or something. Need advice

    I have 9 prior approved efile form 1 suppressors.

    I put another efile form1 suppressor application in back in November. Went into some sort of research or hold at the FBI. ATF says they can only ask the FBI whats going on and of course I expect that to go nowhere. I have bought 3 firearms since the app got delayed without incident including a .22 pistol this afternoon. PICSs came back in like 10 minutes. can't understand what the holdup is at the FBI.

    Does anybody know if there is anybody I can call at the FBI to get this moving? I'd like to file some more form1's but I'm hesitant to do so as I'm worried they'll all end up in some sort of FBI black hole.

    Thanks in advance.

    Youíve got little to no recourse short of trying to get your congressman involved. Chances are itíll still get approved and there are a number of reasons that it gets sent to research. Most of them have much rhyme or reason. Do you have a common name or fairly common name or anything like that? Any discrepancy in fingerprints or picture etc?

    Crazy as this sounds, woke up this morning to an approval email. SMH, I'll never understand how things work at the ATF/FBI. Maybe they saw my post last night, LOL
