I got my PAL/RPAL in less than a month, basically exactly the 28 day minimum period, a couple days longer maybe.
1) Send your application, photos, and proof of passing the course via registered mail.
2) When your mail has arrived, call them and confirm they have it, and also that you haven't made any mistakes on the form (you can verbally correct them I believe).
3) Call the CFO office and do your phone interview, then have your references call the CFO office right after. Don't wait for them to call you or your references.
4) Call and check the status. If everything is good, and they just haven't got to it yet, they will do so on the spot and get it out to you.
Do all that and you should have it in the absolute minimum amount of time, it worked for me and many others. The CFO office is very good about it, and has no problem with people making their life easier.
Also when you guys apply for your long term ATTs, get it for "All approved gunsmiths and ranges". The CFO office will help you with the wording if you aren't sure, they are familiar with the request. This makes it so you are free to travel to any gunsmith/range, not just one.
