Pace of calls slowing?
 
Hello 1911 Fans!

I live in the Peoples Republic of NJ and thus have to place a request for a pistol purchasing permit to be ready for when my number comes up (mid 27,000 range). I live in NJ and the permits are for 90 days.

I've been watching the pace of the calls to see when my number will likely come up and for a while the CMP seemed to be averaging about 40 guns per day but now that pace seems to have slowed considerably.

I was wondering if anyone else noticed that, when you look at the highest number called that I could find to date it was in the 23,700 range. Divided by the number of days since 4/6 when we all got the first RGN emails that equals 33 per day.

Considering that we were pacing at 40 a day for some time (as I said, I've been keeping tabs) that suggests that somewhere along the line things slowed considerably.

I am very patient, its not a matter of wanting them to move faster. They work very hard its clear. I am however concerned that perhaps there are not enough and my number won't be called at all.

In any event, I think I'll wait at least another month or two before requesting my pistol purchasing permit from NJ. They never make it easy around here!

I certainly have no insider information here, but I'd caution against over-thinking the average number per day that get called/processed. That average means something to those of us waiting, not to the good folks at CMP. There are many things that can affect the average and just looking at what happens in May, June and July would make it probable that the average would decrease through those months...perhaps the armorers and staff are actually enjoying the summer and taking vacation, enjoying holiday shut-downs, celebrating graduations and weddings and spending time with family.

Exactly my thoughts.

Also have the National Matches going on a Camp Perry. Not sure any of the 1911 crew is involved, but that event does tend to suck all of the air out of the room.

For context. I got contacted 7/16. RGN #23566. Eight working days ago. Your number is only 107 past mine. Just an interesting thought. Not indicative of any kine of pattern. Just thought it was interesting.

Jasper18, as a fellow traveler in the PRNJ, I had my 1st batch of permits expire on 7/20, just submitted again for the next batch as after the 90 days, the State automatically extends your permits for 90 days to total..180. Hoping this batch of permits will cover me my RGN is 27315 so I'm thinking Late October early November. Good Luck to You!

We didn't see an email or call on caller id but stranger things have been reported. They asked for updated ffl info so we called to send that and called Monique to respond. Got her voice mail and left message. Things do slip thru the cracks so if you think you should, send an email to inquire. Her RGN is 23310.

Wife got the email today at 4:30 pm today that her pistol shipped. Will be here tomorrow and we can't wait to see what comes in. Offered Field and Rack and she ordered Field grade.

RGN 23610 contacted today
 
Received an email from Monique, called right away and had a very pleasant conversation. It's 95 in Anniston today and their A/C is out so 85 inside the office - hang in there CMP team!

Field and Rack grades available. I requested a rack grade hoping for original finish and matching slide and frame.

Thanks CMP1911!

23805 I got the call a few minutes ago. Spoke with Definie. Very nice and quick. Offered Field and Rack. Choose Field and asked for as original finish as possible, but she said the couldn't take requests anymore.

I saw USMA-1972 post above and asked about the A/C, she said it was starting to cool down and that they were close to wrapping up for the day.

Thank you CMP!
