This happens for various reasons. If you don't provide your SSN on the 4473 form, they might be trying to ensure you're not someone else with the same name. You could also have some convictions on your record that need to be more closely reviewed before giving a proceed or denied status. The FBI will give the store a date by which they can legally give you the gun if they have not heard back.
I had a customer that got a delay a couple weeks ago. Got a call a few days later that I could proceed. Nothing to get concerned about yet.
