The ineptness of the ATF has no bounds. I just called the jail where my sparrow is being held and they informed me that my stamp still hasn't been received. The stamp was originally approved and sent Dec 2014 and quickly "lost in the mail". The shop requested a new stamp be sent in February and again at the begining of this month. I orginally filed in April of 2014.

For shame. Why do we pay these people again?

Damn, Kam! That really transcends frustrating and goes right into ridiculous. Someday, man...someday.

I would call them for yourself and verify that the address for your dealer was correct on the Form and see if they have anymore information. Not saying your dealer didn't do his/her job, I just a person that likes to know for myself.

I thought that you could request a certified copy of your form 4 - 30 days after your approval if you didn't receive it? This would get your can in you hands.

I will pursue both avenues. I am still in Kuwait so I won't even be around to pick it up for 6 months. I am still keeping on top of it because I don't want to assume anything. Especially after arriving back home last February thinking (i was told it had been approved) thinking I could pick it up and being denied.

They should have had a duplicate stamp within 2 weeks. We have only had one case where we had to request an approval more than once. The shop should have send over a dozen requests at this point if they haven't received the stamp. Every two weeks they should be requesting one.

Just got word that the replacement arrived. Not that I can do anything about it at the moment but at least it will be there for me when I get back.

They are slowing it down BECAUSE you are in Kuwait. Just checking to see if you have been radicalized while you are over there.

Really. I read about it. Perfectly normal nice young man sets foot in a Muslim country, and they secretly become radicalized for no reason. It could happen.

The only protection is to drink lots of alcohol while you are there, because you are not allowed to go to a mosque if you have been drinking. And wear a condom.

I rub a healthy amount of bacon grease under my arms like deodorant before leaving the house. Not only does it keep the radicals away, it also keeps my skin looking young.

There is a few other tricks I have up my sleeve but I wouldn't want to compromise OPSEC so my lips are sealed. :biggrin:

Hopefully it won't happen to you too. My dad filed for his saker the same time I applied for my sparrow. He's still waiting.

I dont. Oberto makes bacon jerky. I carry it around with me. Have to carry extra so I can throw it at the shifty looking ones when they get too close.
