I remember reading somewhere that the law was changed so that the waiting period can be assessed from the time an agreement to purchase is made, rather than when the background check is called in.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Waiting period starts after we get the OK from the state, and is good for 30 day's maximum.

Waiting period starts when we get a response from the state even if the response is "delayed".

I thought the waiting period started when you made the purchase, not when the background check is made.

If you buy a gun from a private party, there is no phone call, so when would the timer begin?

ETA-

Here's a link to a pdf at the isp site, it doesn't specify either way, just that the waiting period must be observed.

I'll stand by my answer.

•FFL notifies the Illinois State Police (ISP), Firearms Services Bureau to perform
a background check in accordance with state and federal laws.
•FFL receives an "Approval" from ISP to transfer the firearm.
•Buyer must abide by the State of Illinois waiting period before taking possession
of the firearm. The waiting period for a long gun is 24 hours and 72 hours for a
hand gun.


You decide who is correct.

Actually, you're both close. Refer to the other thread, guys. FFL holders start the waiting period from the time the 4473 form is completed and the sale is actually written up. NOT from the time they actually call it into the state. Most of them, however, call in while you're filling out the form, so it's all the same time. If their phone's tied up or dead they might have to wait several hours to call it in.

FTF sales by private (Non-FFL) owners obviously don't make a phone call to get approval. Waiting period still applies, figure out between yourselves when you agree to the sale when your 24 or 72 hours is up and then meet then to finish the sale.
