Delay

Recommended Posts

Anyone every experience a delayed response while purchasing a handgun and going through the background check?  Long time gun owner, user, etc. but never actually purchased from a brick and mortar location prior to this attempt.  Received a delayed response last Friday and they have until end of day today to respond before I can pick up the gun.  Can't understand why the delay in the first place, let alone why on day 3 it still hasn't processed?

Really just hope nothing goes wrong with the purchase as I feel I was getting a great deal on a sale that is already over.  Been looking for something very small that was a bit more "wife-friendly" than some other options.  Found a brand new S&W Bodyguard .380 w/ Crimson Trace Laser for $330 out the door.  Just hoping they call me today to come pick it up or at least transfer it to me come Friday when the 72 hour time period has elapsed....

The recent terrorist attacks have caused gun sales to go through the roof. My guess is the system is a little overwhelmed. That is a great price for that weapon. Good luck.

Thanks, that's what i told my dad was my guess as to the hold up.  Although, it still doesn't explain the whole reason for a delay in the first place...  oh well.  

The manager told me that after today the 3 day period was up.  They're closed tomorrow, but she said i could come pick it up on Friday and they'd transfer it no problem.
