Default Does the government shutdown affect gun sales?

Anyone here remember whether past shutdowns put a stop to nics checks?
Will fa-10 forms still be processed?
Am I wasting my time driving an hour to a gun shop today?

I may do that. I'll need to do the paperwork anyway so I'll still go. If they can't process the forms I'll just have it shipped to my local contact.
I was hoping someone would have a definitive answer.

Hey MM13... How's it going buddy.
According to this source it won't be effected;
http://www.guns.com/2013/09/30/nics-wont-close-government-shutdown-says-nra-ila-video/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=nics-wont-close-government-shutdown-says-nra-ila-video
...and I can't find it on any other list of shutdown priorities either;
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2013/09/30/absolutely-everything-you-need-to-know-about-how-the-government-shutdown-will-work/
http://www.wjla.com/articles/2013/09/government-shutdown-2013-list-of-services-affected-94692.html
...Sooooo, I'd say you're okay.. But just to be sure call ahead and see if the dealer(s) can give you a straight up yes or no. I'd hate to see you waste the time & gas.

Thanks. That's comforting. I Gotta go anyway.
I need about 3 more cups of coffee. Doing a search on it didn't even occur to me. Between the shutdown and excitement of finally getting my hands on a shield (for myself) I didn't get much sleep.

I thought they said on the news that nics was down too but I could be wrong.

I can verify that nics is up and running.

I too can also verify that NICS will be running throughout the government shutdown.
