It's almost been a month since I tried to pick up a firearm from Sportsmans Warehouse. I expected to be put on delay due to Covid and the fact that every other purchase requiring a 4473 was delayed (no longer than 5 days). Within the past year I have acquired two NFA items from a local shop, and am working for the federal government. One would think that if I was cleared for those three things, I'd be cleared to pick up a firearm.

I understand they have the 29 day policy but every other place, if delayed, I get the proceed within a weeks time.

Am I missing something?

That sucks. I’ve only bought a gun from them once and walked out the door with it.

UPINs don't always work. I used to have a guy who would get delayed every single time. Dozens of transfers, always delayed, then came back as a proceed. He ended up getting a UPIN and it would only work about half the time. Other guys have had them and it's still 50/50.

I bought a gun from Cabelas a few weeks back. Guy at the counter moved half the speed of smell and needed a magnifying glass to read my DL, the form, and everything else. Shit you not from the time i said i would take it to the time i walked out the door was an hour and 15 mins.

Just a shame a law abiding citizen has to pay $300+ dollars to guarantee they can walk out of a store with a firearm.

In my experience, sportsman's has similar lag times when you're able to walk out of the store with product in hand. I wouldn't purchase from them if the local places I had what I was looking for in stock.

They pissed me off a few weeks ago too. Only let me buy 2 boxes of 10mm even though there was at least 4000 rounds of it in the endcap. I told them obviously the demand isn't there for that caliber. I cheated the system by coming back with 5 buddies and my wife. When they saw me passing my debit card to them to buy they gave me the look. I told them what ?youre sign says 2 boxes per customer.

Well, the good news, I haven't paid for it. It's just absurd that I am still waiting. Would a 4473 in delayed status affect a new 4473? My assumption is yes, but I'm not sure. I don't need the rifle right now. Just impressed, there is still no resolve.
