hey mate, it may be like mine. it was 12 weeks before i got ID check, then 2 weeks for plastic. however, i bought a 223 rifle from a shop for delivery to my house and i got the gun before i got the plastic. the documentation that came with the gun had my license number on it.

Ran into someone today who only got their letter of approval to join a pistol club after 8 months. Hate to see how long their lic will take after their 6 month probie. :shock:

It just means it has to be printed. They say the same thing when you get a PTA approved.

Their quality assurance isn't that great. My dealer got his new card one year with my brother's photo (he is a dealer's associate) on it :lol:

They said they would like to check the storage facilities and check my rifle? I advised that I have a PTA in the system for a rifle but has not been approved yet. They said the paperwork on hand would be OK, I will post the outcome.

It seems very strange, perhaps my name just came up for some reason?
