    So ..... Perhaps it makes a difference or not..... Maybe someone with credentials can chime in. I am not law enforcement. I DO have a current weapons carry license in GA.

    I work in an industry that requires, and I have many times cleared, federal clearance for close contact with certain persons, ie; senators, congressmen, and even POTUS and VPOTUS as well as other international HOS.

    Does any of this, in any way, help or hinder in wait time for NFA class III tax stamps ? ie; surpressors or SBR stamps ?

    I don't think so. They make everyone wait, some just a little longer than others.

    It shouldn't hinder you from from acquiring NFA tax stamps. Depending on what forms you submit, you will get a different timeframe from pending to approval. The background check is just that. I noticed in some threads that those who get "delays" on their background check are likely to run into the same issue but it is not a delay that last long. As long as you aren't a red flag you should be fine. Just expect anywhere from 4.5 months to 1 year. My first tax stamp was approved in 4.5 months. Probably the fastest I have seen yet. A buddy of mine did an SBR, took 7 months. They're processing faster now, I'd jump on in it before the system gets backlogged again.

    Unless you are a LEO and going through official LEO acquisition, you are at the back of the line.

    Hell, I had already gotten one plus had been an FFL holder and my last stamp two weeks short of a year to get. Best thing to do is just forget about it and let it show up when it shows up.

    I can't do that, but it's still good advice. LOL!

    Unfortunately clearances mean nothing and professional courtesy does not exist within the NFA branch. The way they do the background checks is just a NICS check like all dealers do for normal guns. The NICS system is basically just a database of prohibited persons / potentially prohibited persons. To my knowledge it does not provide any information regarding any type of credentials / clearances.

    This.
    It's not the check that takes time, it's the queue that takes time.
