    Not enough time to notify BATFE and get approval to bring NFA firearm to site. Please give more timely notification.
    Thanks

    Umm it's as Timely as it could be. Considering the events that have recently happened. Try the August shoot..

    How long does it take the ATF to pencil whip that?

    I believe you can file once, at the start of the year, specifying generally where you'll be traveling during the year. Talk with the other NFA folks. You might find it's easier. IANAL

    This is generally true but he would still need to know which states and you definitely specify addresses. The travel papers can be requested for up to one calendar year.

    There is NOTHING worse than some over zealous range officer standing over your back waiting to trip you up for some minor infraction. I support gun safety at all times but that top pic makes me wonder..... Back in the day at the car shoots in Athol (long time green member here) it was a blast-a-thon with no big-brother behind you.

    The RSO's at the Monadnock shoots are a far cry from Range Nazis. Yes, they'll challenge you if you swing your loaded rifle back toward the crowd, but they're mainly making sure sure nobody gets their head blown off, not spoiling a good time. One of the usual RSO's often brings the coolest toys.

    My experience with the RSOs is that they are there to keep the line running smoothly, help people with malfunctions or who are otherwise unfamiliar with the gun they're shooting, and make sure people are being generally safe. They are far from "over zealous".

    Not sure if serious, most people filing 5320s just do a blanket one or several at once, it doesn't have to be for a specific time and date, it can cover an entire year to another state.

    If you had just filed it in January you'd probably have it by now.

    The particular RSO in that picture works all the shoots, is a real nice guy and like many is curious about what folks bring to the shoots. He doesn't stand over anyone waiting for an infraction but he certainly will help if you have a problem.

    I completely agree with the above posts. We've had malfunctions where they stepped in to help clear them. Never an issue of overzealousness witnessed at Monadnock!

    I found the RSOs to be a very professional and helpful bunch. With so much going on and varied skill levels handling often unfamiliar firearms they had thier work cut out for them.

    Not being used to handling a chamber flag on the line I needed assistance locking the bolt back on a new platform I was using. I was shown how without feeling like a dummy. I felt comfortable having my young son there knowing these guys were on the job. Honestly it was the first time I’ve been to a range and didn’t feel the need to have eyes in the back of my head...
