As I mentioned in our article on reduced NFA wait times, NFATracker is an awesome resource for our community. These guys collect and display various ATF paperwork approval and NFA transfer information.

I’m including some information from their website here, but you really should go check them out on your own. While you’re there, you might notice that they recommend the same A&D Boundbook software that we do!
