after ~15 or so gun purchases in the last year, this morning I went into the same gun shop and filled out my yellow sheet the same as always. My first 'Delayed' ever... WTF?

A different guy from NICS did call the shop back like 10 minutes later and approved/proceed so I got the pistol but I want to know why all of the sudden it went to a delayed status...

If the computer is slow ----------

they will not waste time on you. You get a delayed response.

I have had it happen to cops.

They finally caught on about your terrorist activities. Dude I wouldnt answer any knocks at the door for a while. Do you have a gas mask?

They are coming for you.......get a gas mask and start wearing a welding helmet around the house to counteract the Flash-bangs coming through the window..........

Dude, I used to get delayed EVERY STINKING TIME for a couple years. Then probably two years ago (?) they upgraded the process to where they would pass off the caller if the initial check had problems. I have a very common name (first and last), so that is likely the culprit. Now I haven't been delayed at all in the last year or two.

And when I get off my ass and get my CHL, I won't ever get delayed! (Unless I shop at WalMart... they call in regardless, so I hear)

I NEVER got delayed. I moved to VA a year ago from MD. I have been delayed for EVERY gun purchase since I moved.

It happened to me about 6 years ago. I went in to purchase an HK USC .45 carbine that I'd been eyeballin. Proceeded to the store, picked out the rifle, spare mags, ammo, case......I was in hog heaven. I had right at $1000 bucks cash at the register.......beaming with happiness and it all got shit on by a delayed NICS check. I drove half way across Houston and they called me back on my cell phone and told me that I could come pick it up.

Thats when I went to get my CHL. No waiting. Walk in, paperwork, pay, Walk out.

Uh oh! Now your next purchase will be delayed.
Link Posted: 1/12/2005 12:43:41 PM EDT
Always happended to me whenever I was getting an upgrade to my clearance and or a re-validation...............

The first gun I bought after a 20 year hiatus went through with no trouble at all. EVERY subsequent one has been delayed...it takes me about 30 minutes on average to get NICS approval now, from the time the call is placed to the call back. It's pretty ***damn annoying, to be honest.

I offered a DNA sample to a cop once. She wasn't amused.

But for those of us that don't live in a free state, that's not an option.

Brettb19, you're lucky it was only for 10 minutes. Mine have never come back approved. They're never denied. The BATF just doesn't approve it. That's a pain, because according to their procedures you can't challenge a non-approval, only a denial.z

Or after so many checks on your name you probably got flagged.
