It's saddens me that any firearms dealer would be so paranoid as to not transfer a firearm when the law does not prohibit them. I've learned since getting my FFL is that gun dealers love to invent imaginary laws and nonexistent ATF regulations.

Oregon sadly does not allow the CHL to count as a NICS check.
I am not a fan of the NICS and was "Delayed" for 30 days, tried again and one day later got the approval.
For further reading.......
"On the basis of our review, we believe that the percentage of persons
subsequently found not to be prohibited is significantly higher than the
10 percent cited by the ATF. As indicated in the report, 69 of the 197
delayed denials we reviewed were closed because the person was
determined not to be prohibited."
I wonder what the <...future...> stats will be, these are from 2004 and published in 2008.
Our poll may be an indication of today's ATF and NICS data?
Then the kitchen FFL told me that if I order more than one handgun, I should only pick up one per week, or he has to report me.
So I have a choice, and I chose to pick them up one per week.
still wanted my SSN before they would approve it.
There must be an ex-con somewhere around here with the same last name.
Never had a deny.
Even before carry permit. It does help a lot when doing the paperwork!
...this is the longest time i have been delayed.....usually 24 hours has been the longest....i don't get there stupid system
Maybe the more common names or something are harder to run through, or they could just be picking on them, i don't know, thats just what i heard anyway.
We have to go through OSP as a middle man for background checks.
I was told by OSP (Oregon State Police) that it was because of a charge I had in California and they needed to check that out. (misdemeanor)
After the third day with no response, I took possession of the firearm. Luckily the LGS knew the law and was more than willing to work within it.
I have no clew when they got the proceed or how long it took.
I am about to go in and buy my second handgun and figure that I will get delayed again; I just hope the new LGS I am dealing with is aware and willing to work with me within the law.
Funny thing is I have a Concealed Carry License.
The only way to guarantee that you will not be "delayed" is to get yourself one of those Unique Personal Identification Numbers from NICS.
It saddens me that so many people will do something just because the law does not forbid it.
Those who have been or are already in the Military should already know -- and beyond complaining about that which they have zero control over.
It is called "hurry up and wait" for a reason.
It would be nice if that were completely accurate. Even with a UPIN I still get brief delays. So far never more than a couple minutes when it's called in, usually 20-30 minutes if the FFL uses e-check. Most of the time though, it is pretty much instant.
