    It was not listed in their store nor was it mentioned on their when we spoke via email and phone. My new license can in the main today, and I still have my old license. I'm about to head over their now.

    He said they "denied" me but I'm not sure if he was using technical terms or not. The state police stated that the only issue was with my license, and after that was taken care of, then I was good to go. I'm going to call and ask them about them if the 30 day clause applies to me.

    As someone who was wrongly denied for over a year, this is a bogus requirement. You can be denied through no fault of your own, by a mistake made by a clerk during record transcription. Ask me how I know. The FFL held my gun for a YEAR. I can understand why an FFL would make this rule, but it means that the innocent customer could lose hundreds or thousands of dollars due to this policy. Again, sometimes the only guilty party here is the GOVERNMENT. A policy that punishes the customer for the government's failure is bogus.

    I know... Not being a criminal or fitting any of the other disqualifiers when it comes to firearms, the thought of ever being denigned never crossed my mind. Then when you are denigned for any reason, there's a stigma placed on you, and everyone involved demeanor changes.

    I picked the firearm up without any issues. The state police accepted my old divers license to show that I lived in VA 30 days prior to the issued date that's printed on my new license. The dealer did not mention anything about charging me extra fees, and I purposely did not bring it up.

    I learned about Virginia's 30 day clause on newly issued or reinstated license, and I learned to not just pay attention to price/transfer fees when searching for an FFL.

    QFT...and not just for FFLs. There's been a couple times when I've regretted getting into a business deal after "reading the fine print". :banghead:

    All in all, it sounds like the FFL's policy is just there to enforce for dead-beat customers, not for instances like yours where there's a unforeseen/resolvable issue.

    $100 denighed fee

    My guess, and this is nothing more than a guess, is that sentence applies to firearms that are ordered in from out of state for receipt of the in state FFL. A $100 fee to undo the transfer and or re-market a firearm because the purchaser is an unqualified buyer is not an unreasonable fee.

    Its my opinion that its dozens of fees that is meant as a way to get the ffl a new gun to sell if a felon failed the check... Normal practice is for the fll to send the firearm back to the seller at the seller's cost, and the seller would bill the customer a restock fee....
