Yep

My guess is someone at SS forgot to send my stuff in or they got behind or something

Everything Iíve read says checks cash in 2-4 weeks max

No, the Form 1 or 4 will need it's own set of photos and fingerprint cards attached to the forms to be mailed in.

Or the actual dealer did not do his part and sign the form timely? Once you do your part of the form, SS sends it to the dealer for review and signature. Once dealer signs, SS prints everything and drops in mail. There is also the possibility of the original submission being lost in the mail.

Day 301. Still in FBI check for me today as well. I caught a friendly one today so I asked if another one I have in the pipe (only a month old) would potentially catch the same issue. Her response was no because they are working closely with the FBI to resolve the issue of them getting hung up. Hope she is right!!! I don't care when the 2nd one gets approved (I already have possession of it on a F3), just want the first one.

Mine was done on my trust vs. "individual" and I have no doubt it slowed down the process. I told a buddy to figure out what he wants and buy everything at 1x and then forget it about them.

This is ridiculous. I called 2 weeks ago and was told I was waiting to be assigned an examiner, last week I was told I was waiting for the background check, today I was told I was pending processing and that the background check hadnít begun yet.

Anywhere from 5 minutes to 5 months seems to be the norm right now. From what I have gathered, they run a quick check on you and if you get no hits, you pass and move back to the examiner for approval. If you get a hit for anything, not necessarily bad, just in their system for anything, you get put in the "we need to look deeper into this" pile. Them getting to that look at later pile has been taking up to 5 months recently. Then if they have to contact any local authorities on any history you may have in the system, that can take longer.
