Default Denied!

So FFL finally gets back in town and go to secure my new rifle. Background check comes back "Hold". So now he has to wait three days to hear back and then use his discretion if they don't.

Is this right?

I have 0 marks on my record so I have no idea why I would be flagged. I really can't think of a single reason at all, nothing. He said I would have no idea of finding out what is causing it either, true?

Hey Boss - Did you include your Soc on your application??

Alot of times, if the Soc isn't included, we get the "HOLD" and three day wait if someone has a common name.

Rarely do we get a hold if the Soc is included, but it did happen to me once. They never called back and I just waited the three days and got the pistol anyways.

I am betting they are backlogged, and probably won't call back with either an approval or denial in the next three. Your gunshop should have their discretion to sell it to you after the three day "hold" expires....

I had this sneaking suspicion it had to do with me not listing my SSN. I left that blank as always.

I sent an e-mail to the FBI Appeals office with my NTN to double check as well.

Hate that feeling of thinking there is some black mark on my secret file.

Yeah, with no SSN listed, it's probably just a hold up out of their end.

I wouldn't be surprised to find out there is a mandatory unofficial "no SSN - three day wait" policy with all the weapon sales that have been going on.

I would say you are fine, but fell into the category of no immediate green flag, so they probably will do a basic check, find out you aren't on the Terror Watch list and forget to call the guy back with an okay to proceed.

I am betting you are fine....

Diddo on the Soc, it's the typical pass the buck gubmint ploy. Say hold and nothing else. This pushes the decision locally. It's easier and faster to say hold and if 1% of those on hold do not buy, its turns into yet another lib gun control scheme!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Or just put your SSN on the application.

Are you afraid the government will know your SSN? Or is it more the local gun shop having too much info?

Sometimes I get a hold, sometimes I don't. Honestly, I think it just depends on how far the person on the line decides to look into the possible flag.

I was freakin' out about it the first time I got a hold, too. Went so far as to have a friend who works for local LE nonchalantly run me for warrants.

Well, the "terror watch list" got their guns (for the most part): People on terrorist watch list allowed to buy guns - CNN.com
Maybe you should start chanting & carrying a copy of some religious text other than the bible.
