My experience has been that if both coasts are in *operating hours* it can get hinky.
I used to have guys that I liked come by the shop at my fun-times to do transfers quite often and don't recall delays - though there may have been one or two.
I think delays are as often about NICS-administration was about the individuals... maybe, more so.
Maybe regional ? ? ? or maybe luck??
And my name is very common and generic.
This afternoon, the backlog of checks was over 4000 deep.
Some transfers with CCL info go right through, while other CCL holders end up waiting up to
two weeks for the right to pick up the gun. No logic to any of it.
Oh yeah, last year the State Police informed dealers that there were to be
no more 'three day delay?, then come get your gun anyway' transfers conducted by dealers.
I do not know of any local dealers willing to challenge them on it either.
My State’s carry license makes it so I don’t have to.
Not recently. But from about 2014 thru 2018 all 6 guns I bought were delayed the full 10 days, rifles, handguns and shotguns. No delays before, and no delays since for rifles, handguns and shotguns. It’s frustrating for sure.
It was the same way in AL for about a year, maybe a little more, then they caught a sheriff giving permits to felons. Now we are back to the old way.
I’ve bought 2 so far this year with less than 10 min results, early last year one took close to an hour that’s the longest I’ve ever had to wait, so far.
Same here, and even though we don't even need a permit to carry concealed anymore, it's worth having just for that. I picked up a couple more AR-15 lowers last week, in and out in 15 minutes.
Before the election I had some delays and I have no explanation for them.
Lucked out and was about 2 hours.
November 2020 transfer to a local FFL. NICS took 4 days.
INSTAcheck my back part. I'd love to chat with the person that named it ... Understanding the "7 million new gun buyers" blada blada
-jb, sorta understanding
It’s probably Chinese hackers screwing with us.
I use my CCL. Some Walmart will not use the CCL and run me through the machine, in which case, I ALWAYS for as long as I can remember, get delayed. Using my CCL it is in and out.
Of course, not sure how this new legislation all in the news that we cannot talk about will affect this, hopefully the extended 10 day check will still be bypassed by a CCL.
My son bought a nice little S&W revolver about 2 weeks ago at Sportsman's Warehouse in Denver..BGC took about 15 minutes.
That's what I'm thinking as well. These gun control bills bouncing around congress might have created a surge in purchases over the last couple of weeks
