    Now that I have the serial number, I finished my eForm 1 and submitted it. However, I totally forgot to order my fingerprint cards before submitting it. I quickly placed an order about 10 minutes ago at SS for a new set of prints. I hope I can get the prints there in time. What method have you sent prints to the ATF to ensure quick delivery in a time constrained situation? Also, any idea how quick SS can get cards out these days? It’s been about six months since I’ve ordered fingerprint cards from them.

    If you’re extremely worried you can go to local PD and pay to get fingerprinted and then ship via FedEx or UPS expedited. I used FedEx and used 2 day expedited and it was $35. Make sure you ask for proof of delivery, so if ATF tries to screw your around you’ve got the proof they got it.

    Prints will probably ship tomorrow and they typically ship quickly via Fedex. I use a priority mail cardboard envelope for shipping my prints. From SS to me is 2 or 3 days, plus another 3 to get it to the ATF. You should have plenty of time.

    You’ve got 10 days. You should be fine.

    Pretty sure you have 10 business days to send the cards, not for the cards to be delivered. 10 business days is 2 weeks. SS delivery will probably be 1-3 days

    Ordered some last month. They arrived next day. You could you priority mail flat rate to NFA division which is usually 3 business days, I opted and did priority express which was 2 days. And to note I’m from MN so far from everything in terms of shipping.
