Didnt you just have 9 or 10 come back a few months ago?
Yeah, but they were all through one dealer. These new 'uns are through two. Same examiner though, purely by chance...
If there is only one examiner working there now, what are the odds you would get the same one again?
I was in a rush earlier this year. But I was in a rush for Form-1 stuff. What I have learned since being here is to slow down, take a breath, and really think things through.
I've not filed any forms yet. But that will happen this month. I expect that my first suppressor project will be something I do over the winter.
I'm not going to worry about the time. I'm getting my end setup. I also need to practice some basic machinist skills before I actually get to making suppressor parts. Don't go taking me for a solipsist though. There can be only one and I am it.
I personally have unknown opportunity cost going into my first can along with a pretty darn well known bill for hobby level machine equipment. Oddly enough, I was trying to save money. The joke is on me. I should have just bought a Cyclone-K.
Then again, now I want many suppressors and now I have the tooling to toss them off as fast as my nonexistent skill allows.
I remember my Form-4 and how long that took. Felt like an eternity. And I knew nothing about NFA other than how to bug my dealer. He must have enjoyed that. In those days, I hung out at his shop. I bought a lot of things I don't need and can't bare to part with.
Now I'm just concentrating on making some more money. Yes, I've been dealing with setting up a trust and other things for NFA toys. So I will certainly be waiting for that wonderful mail back from the NFA branch when I send in my Form-1 paperwork. But I will be thinking about other stuff too.
Little things like my bank balance.
