I am a vet and never get an OK until 3-4 days. My wife gets an OK within 15 minutes.

Good thing is we both received our concealed permits within 5 minutes of turning them in to the Sherrif.

Re: has anyone else here been delayed buying a firearm???
Last time I purchased a fire arm, it was from a friend who's a collector. Since it was a sale from one private party to another, there was no background check required. Apparently he sells less than five weapons per year, on average, and is therefore exempt from the federal background check requirements. He did ask me to sign a notarized statement that on X/X/XXXX date I purchased and tool physical delivery and possession of a _40_caliber, semi-automatic type HANDGUN, along with two 12/shot clips and one 18/shot clip. The manufacturer of this weapon is BROWNING NORTH AMERICA CORP., and the Serial Number on the weapon itself is: __________________.

He "said" he asked for this statement because he had purchased the gun at a show and it was linked to his name/ssn because he did fill out the background check paperwork, etc., prior to being cleared to purchase it. By having a dated, notarized receipt of possession/sale to a third party - he would not and could not be held responsible for any unlawful activity involving this weapon from the date of sale forward in time.

My attorney had no problem with it and I signed the statement and had my signature notarized. Both the seller and I have copes of the statement of sale/receipt of delivery. (The statement/receipt also protects me from any unlawful use of this weapon that might have take place PRIOR to my taking delivery of it.

Re: has anyone else here been delayed buying a firearm???
OP here is the real answer to your question. Most people get an automatic flag after their fifth firearm or so. Doesn't matter what kind it is. It's not because of your Facebook posts or viewership here. It's just how the system works. Normally these holds are no longer than 5 days and it is just designed to give the ATF fuckers a chance to review your file. I got my hold on a little tiny 22 magnum pocket gun of all things and was the final straw that convinced me to get a CCW. This requires an extensive background check and fingerprint but at least prevents any future "mommy can I please have a gun" requests.

If you are the tin foil hat kind of guy you can always purchase used guns via person to person sales which in most free states do not require any paperwork. Don't stress out too much, it's just how the system works.

From this forum - [link to floridaconcealedcarry.com]

I read threads about people that have CWPs being delayed as well for a number of reasons.

I've heard that the BG checks are up to 120K a day for gun sales. that is a lot and the last time I bought a gun they waited 15 minutes on the phone.

Yes, a number of times. If they find something you can't buy a gun. If they don't (within a period of time) Then you can pick up your gun.

Re: has anyone else here been delayed buying a firearm???
OP, that happened to my son about a year ago. He attempted to purchase his first firearm at a dealer and was told his approval was delayed. The dealer said he has no idea why. He has nothing that would cause a problem in his background, and he was never in the military.

The dealer told him within I think a couple of weeks he will call him when he hears anything. The dealer did call him, maybe 10 days later, and told him all is okay and he can come in and purchase the firearm. My son never found out why there was a delay. The dealer didn't know. He has since purchased a couple more and has not had a problem.

When I speak to him I'll try to get more details, if there are any. BTW, he lives in PA.

Re: has anyone else here been delayed buying a firearm???
It happens to me. The guy told me the same as in the other post that vets or active military with security clearance get flagged which I am neither. I provided my SS# and had to wait an extra day. The thing with that though is after that extra day they either give it to you or refund your money because of my state law. If I would have picked it up then the bg check came back with problems then the sheriff would be sent to my house and I could get arrested. I have the same problem with background checks for jobs and when I got my ccw. For some reason the basic background check for me isn't good enough so I have to wait for a comprehensive check to be done and I also get sent a copy.

A similar article talked about this a couple of years ago. Although the terminology is vague, It is not indicating in any way the forced implanting of RFID chips in American citizens. It is talking about RFID chips in all implantable medical devices for the purpose of their device registry. In other words, things like pacemakers, fake hips, or any other form of implanted medical device will have an RFID chip for cataloging purposes.

Although this is not indicating the forced microchip of US citizens, it is definitely one more step forward.
