I haven't posted about this in a while because there hasn't been any change. I applied back in January and have not heard anything in what is almost 3 months now. I've been calling every 2 weeks to no prevail. Last week the guy I spoke to actually took me seriously; he looked through a bunch of papers and old me that it's been sent to the state firearms division and they're really backed up. I asked repeatedly if there was anything I could do to speed this up because I was annoyed that my references haven't received anything yet and my check wasn't even cashed. Basically I found out that I really couldn't do anything except keep calling to check on the status. That was last Thursday and I looked at my bank account online today and saw that my check was cashed. I'm not sure if it was just a coincidence or my calling actually helped. I'm hoping that my references will get their papers soon and this is a sign that this will all be over soon. I know people have had past experiences with this station and was wondering how long after their references were contacted and their check was cashed did they have their FID? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
