2) No wait on long guns
3) 3-day wait on first handgun purchase.
4) Even if you have a CCW, you still do the background check.
Quick tale: My wife and I bought our first handguns together. Picked them out, filled out the 4473s, paid, and went home to wait. Came back 3 days later. I got my gun, but she was delayed. That was not a happy wife! I got "the look" the whole way home. Couldn't even look at my gun without getting "the look". She was finally approved, got her gun, and I was back on good terms.
I have a pretty common first+last, esp. in this part of the country, so on my first purchase (since NICS took effect) I added my SSN. On my next one I rolled the dice and came up good. Maybe because my name is uncommon where I was born (4473, ques#3)? You place your bets you takes your chances ...
I will say this, on my first purchase the counter guy seemed friendly enough until partway through the check then he started giving me the hairy eyeball and went halfway into the back room. He still seemed kinda hesitant when he turned over the goods. I've always wondered what that was all about.
Too bad he would also have to move to Georgia, change his state of residency to Georgia and get a Georgia Firearms License as well. In Nevada a CWP does not exempt persons from the NICS check.
This is my experience as well and I've bought several guns from dealers since the NICS system was put in place.
And to think Harry Reed is pro-gun. Go figure.
This must be a Vegas thing. When I bought my first handgun in 06, the day of my 21st birthday. I walked in, filled out the form, paid and was on my way. Unfortunately the CCW wont get you out of the background check anymore. I did get to buy a few guns using it though. I think I read somewhere that theres a sheriff here that didnt think that was a good system so he wouldnt sign the deal and screwed the rest of the state.
Like the signs say here in NV, anyone BUTT Harry. He's like a bad fungus.
Someone with the very same name, and 1 digit difference in SocSec number is a very bad person..couple of felony convictions, currently wanted for bad checks.
Only thing that would make this better is if you had to pull a handle on the proceed-denied-delayed slot machine.
I guess this means buying a gun at a gun show is out. Not sure exactly how I'd go back days later when it's gone.
Can you buy from a non-dealer (no ffl) at gunshows where you live? If so,no problem.
Not sure actually. That's a good thing to find out. I can always buy from private parties here, but I was just thinking it would suck to find a nice firearm at a show I wanted and not be able to buy it due to being delayed.
can buy from a private party at a show with no background check.
That's good to know. Thanks.
1. Should I call the store to see if my NICS is still pending or approved? Just wondering if the store will even bother checking up or how good communication is with everyone.
2. I did this Mon morning. Does the 3 days pass on Thur morning or is it close of business Thur or?
Figures. Found a used shotgun I like while waiting. Can't get both.
i was delayed on a handgun once
the check was run through on a thursday and i got delayed i was told if i didnt hear anything after tuesday they would sell it to me
i was confused because tuesday was 5 days away so i asked
the clerk was more than helpful and informed me that i must wait 3 full business days (mon-fri) before they could legaly turn the firearm over to me and that wed morning i could pick it up if it came to that (which it did in fact)
i also asked why wed and not tuesday afternoon and he stated it was store polocy to wait the extra time just in case
that way there would be absolutly no way of saying they sold it prior to the full amount of wait time
This was explained to me once when I had a delay and could not think of why as I have made several purchases.
Harry Reid is pro-gun but he has nothing to do with state laws. It's some clowns at the county level that have screwed up Nevada's gun laws.
He can't be. That's me!
I am thinking of changeing it though. I can't stand the name. I'm thinking of
Fredrick Bartholemew Lipchitz!
Back on thread though, I'm like LeonthePro. My name is pretty unusual too. I've never had to wait, but I'm still always nervous it'll happen at a store where I'm not known.
