Applied for a VAF for a upin cause I was tired of getting delayed everytime of purchase...I know quite a few here have applied for and gotten their upin number...I got my first letter back after 2 weeks saying my app. was accepted and passed thru to the final phase,and I would be receiving a letter back shortly ...That was like a month ago...Any info on about how long these things take to get processed ?

Problem with the UPIN is the feds will now have a database of the firearms you purchased.

I would rather wait the 3 days. I don't buy that many guns.

I'm willing to bet they probably do allready...

Federal law states that the NICS database is to be expunged every 24 hours. I can believe that because people that get a delay, get delays again. If the database was kept intact then the people that get delays would get proceeds.

At least I hope it is this way.

Indeed, federal law mandates that NICS data be wiped every 24 hours...... Unfortunately, the government doesn't always heed it's own laws. I strongly suspect that someone somewhere is keeping that data for future reference, whether they admit it or not. I don't mean to get all tinfoil-hat on anyone here, it's just that the government tends to do illegal things, because they are "good for you". ;)

If it's is expunged every 24 hours then good, but does it say that the data isn't/can't be sent to another database for recording or my fav reason...*cough, cough* research.

You know when we run a NICS check we check one of three boxes denoting Handgun/Longgun/Other and thats all... no serial numbers or any info like that.

Sure the 4473 has all that but unless they need it for a criminal investigation or we shut down, that stays in my fireproof cabinet.
