It makes eight weeks today since I mail in my C&R FFL application and I have nothing. Did everthing right and they took my $30.00 right away. Since they were quick to cash in the $30 I thought the ball was rolling. This seems too long. Anything I can do? Or I'm I lost in the shuffle of things?

My first one took about 90 days. Think the BATFE has been backlogged- lot of folks looking for their C&R. Got my first one in '76. Give it a little time. BTW, if you have not been there, some info at cruffler.com that may be useful.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
Wow. My first one took exactly 13 days to hit my mailbox. That is far from the norm of course, but a lot depends on the individual that is processing the applications for your State. It has been helpful for some folks that have had a long wait to call the licensing center and ask to speak to the person assigned to handle their application for a status report.
Sometimes they are on vacation or an application is buried in the wrong "pile", etc., etc. A simple phone call has worked to get the ball rolling for some.
Thanks for your support everyone. Two days after I posted the thing came in the mail, 8 weeks to the day after cashing in my $30. I really was wondering what could be the delay? 58, US citizen, no record, permit to carry owner. OH Well! It's here.
