    Called the ATF today and checked the status of my Form 4.

    What exactly in ATF/Govt does the term pending mean?

    I figure as much. Im in no hurry, pretty pleased with the reports of the NFA branch.

    I just didnt know if pending meant the form and everything had been processed and was now awaiting approval or if it had just entered the system and it was just now being worked on.

    It could mean anything. It could mean the JBTs are on their way to shoot your dog.

    Who's received it. Atlanta got it on March 4. So does this mean W. Va is now working on it?

    That I don't know, but my experience with companies and government as well as what I have heard from friends dealing is that pending simply means that it has be received by said organization and logged in (they know they have it) beyond that it varies, some pending is everything from logged in to moving around to the correct people to the inbox to right before resolved, some mean it is actually where it finally needs to be and waiting on a review. Pending is just a nice sounding word that makes it sound like they are actually doing something about it at least in most cases.
