Can any one direct me to some documentation.

I have an ATF guy saying that the PICS number is good for 24 hours. The PICS operators say good until mid night on the day of the call.

The PA problem is that the PICS system is not strong enough for the current volume, and buyers need to come back on day 2.

Any input?

if pics is calling you back on day two and they pic up on day two, isnt that before midnight on the same day? i just got a delayed yesterday for teh first time and i will have to use the portions on the 4473 for delayed responses but is that what you mean? i have alsway got a yeah or ney except for that first delayed so im not sure what you mean by waiting till day two.

I thought the approval number was good until the close of business the same day. If the buyer comes back the next day, then technically you need to make another call.

Couldn't you log the gun into your gunsmithing bound book for "cleaning" or "repairs" ? That way you wouldn't need to run a check on them again when they come to pick it up.

It's no different than if they buy the gun, leave for an hour then return to have a set of night sights installed. You are not required to do a background check to return a gun to a customer if it is there for gunsmithing.

On the flipside... if a gun is left with you for consignment sale... you 'gotta run a check on them before returning the gun to them.
