    No doubt. I've never waited more than 15-20 minutes for approval and pick up.

    Usually i will choose the gun i want and fill out the paper work and while handing over the cash my approval will be finished and out the door i go. Takes longer for me to dig the cash out of my pocket than for the paper work to go thru maybe im just slow handing over the cash dont know.

    Purchased one rifle and one pistol from LGSs last year, like stated above, took longer to pay than wait on approval.....

    I'm not sure what kind of delay would hope up a purchase for the entire day. It only takes 10-15 minutes whenever I buy anything.

    A year ago I bought a Phoenix HP22 from my LGS, I handed him my CPL, and was out the door in 15 minutes. No hassle... the CPL makes it simple and quick in Michigan.

    Doesn't always work out. When I picked up my Kahr, I gave him my CCW permit, I walked out the door. Next day, he called me and wanted it back because my background check bounced! Got it back the next day. He said all the others just go straight through, which they should, but I'm special.:D

    I'm always delayed, even with a CCW.
    Being a Lib....comes with the territory I guess.
    I tell them beforehand, I'll come pick it up tomorrow, after the weekend or next week.

    i complained on the last one of these threads that i always get kicked over to operator approval but that usually takes 10 minutes or less.

    Uhm, what? It was approved (or you wouldn't have been given the gun)...then 24hrs later were called and told it "bounced"? Horsefodder.

    I have a felony arrest when in '72 when I was just 17, it was reduced to a misdemeanor and supposed to be sealed under youthful offender, but the clerk at the time f*cked up, and left the arrest out of the sealed file. So when they do a background, they see 2 felony arrests for the same incident. I have the documents from NY that show what the finale outcome was. Sooo, when it bounces, I just send them scanned copies of those docs with my little number they gave my LGS, and they immediately approve it. Requests have been made to NY and to the FBI to clear that flag, but that's not likely to happen. I can hire a lawyer and see if the court will clear my record.

    And as far as being approved when I bought the gun, he didn't run it til later or the next day, he just assumed (rightly so) that since I had a brand new CCW permit, it would go through. But it didn't, told me to bring it back. He said if I didn't take it back, the ATF with sheriff backup would come and get it. Don't want that.

    Usually I fill out the paperwork and by the time they scrounge up the box and trigger/cable lock i'm ready to ring out, about ten to fifteen minutes usually, well except for big box places where apparently you need an escort beyond the ordinary tempered glass forcefield to make sure you don't shoot the place up with a gun legally purchased in your name.

    That happened to me at Rural King when I bought my G21 last month. Seems stupid, but I'm not one to usually purchase in a store, normally; I can find cheaper deals online and, if the shipping and transfer fee is equal to, or less than the store price, I buy online. I also buy the kinds of guns you don't normally see in stores very much(depending on your location anyways), like the TTC, Tavor, M44 mosin and Fatboy I've bought

    Fill out the paperwork and out the door :-D
  17. Let me correct myself here. What i should have said was, If i do the paper work in the morning, then, after the 10 day wait, on the 11th day, could pick it up in the morning. Instead of the end of the day on the 11th day. I ended up sittin around in the afternoon so i would not get there to early.

    That's a whole lot different than you were approved, then denied the next day. A rather u important part of the story was that the seller himself violated the law by not calling it in to later. That's not approved, that's the FFL commited a potential felony.

    I wondered about that. That's why he was so desperate to get me back down there. He didn't tell me he was going to take possession of it, just he "needed something off it", but I knew he was going to take it back. I was going to blow him off, but I know I can legally get it. From now on, I'll make sure he runs it, if it bounces, I'll just bring my number home and fire off an email. PITA. Or maybe the agencies will take care of it! :rofl:
  20. I'm a libertarian so I'm always put on delay. It rather amuses me most of the time.

    Folks around here are so used to it the girl at the local pawnshop about had a heart attack when one of the 45acp colts went straight through.
