    Angry ATF - 90 days and counting, still have not cashed my check

    What I was hoping was going to be a painless first time buy, now looks like it's going to be a hassle.

    Certified bank check still has not been cashed. Technically it expires today (do not cash after 90).

    The gods do not want me to have this suppressor.....

    My FFL is the one who handled that, and is getting the info....Was supposed to be getting it. Never got back to me yesterday.

    ATF Has no record of the serial number, my name, anything.

    Problem being my check is a Certified Bank Check - expired on 4/17 (do not cash after 90 days). Bank calls it a "Stale Check" after 180, and won't refund for 2 years if not cashed. Otherwise I have to do a stop payment and fee.

    Planned obsolescence by the ATF? - Here is to hoping that the FFL finds it.

    The ATF is quick to take funds and slow to approve. It's always been 10 days or less for the check to cash and 5-10 months for approval. I'm with keystone183 hate to point fingers but it starts at the FFL you used good luck

    As it would happen....

    Probably the last time I use a box store to buy one. They filed it in the "Sent" folder. Overnight'd it the day after I called when the manager found it. At least they were up front and very candor about it.

    Thank you for the additional 2.75 month wait on my approval guys.
