Concerning the problem of deleting private messages, I just created a brand new forum on one of my domains and the error wasn't present. Over the weekend, I will try something, but it will require me to shut down the forum. I will try to do this at a less problematic time for you guys. I'll keep you posted but if the forum isn't available, it is because I am working on it.

Post by hurricanecharlie »

When must the notification be made to ATF/NFA that your place of keeping nfa items is moving?

If moving them out of state, you have to submit a Form 5320.20 ("Form 20") notifying ATF of their new permanent location AND receive approval before they cross state lines. I don't know what the current processing time is, but I'd allow at least 30-60 days - but it shouldn't take that long. The instructions are printed on the Form, which can be downloaded at

If moving in-state, you can also use a Form 20 to notify ATF, but you don't need to receive your permission slip back before moving them - just do it promptly.
