I skipped SHOT Show this year, so am getting this second-hand from Oklahoma gun trust attorney Matthew Riggin:
I attended the SHOT show last week and visited with the agents at the ATF booth to ask this very question. ATF confirmed that they had 9500 comments to proposed rule 41P and that for the immediate future they would take no action and that we should continue to use our existing trust methods to acquire NFA items. They further stated that they have added additional staff and that the time from application to approval has been reduced to 4-5 months.
Guess our massive campaign for public comments worked, for now at least.
