I'm in Louisiana. They told me it will take 3 or 4 days and that he would put it aside with my name on it. I have no felonies or anything and have bought plenty with no prob. This would be 5th purchase since March. I bought a Hd shotgun a couple weeks ago for a Christmas gift and a hand gun for my misses an AR and an Ak I figure that's why but don't know

i always use my social security number when filling out the 4473 form. my SS# are unique. my name or address might not be.

my father, grandfather and i all have the same name, and at one point we all shared the same address.

Consider yourselves lucky. Here in the Peoples Republic of Maryland we are waiting 3-4 MONTHS due to the State Police backlog. It's insane.

The liberals think they're doing a good thing because for some reason they just can't understand that criminals don't go through this process.........

ccase, there are 3 possible responses to the IBC inquiry- proceed, delay, deny. By the way, that is ALL the dealer gets back.

Delay could be for any number of reasons. In addition to the things listed here already, it could be the unicorn farts are making the computer system hiccup, two of the people doing checks are on vacation, and the one little old lady that DID show up for work is snowed under with requests.

Saw the Chief of Police of Denver Colorado delayed. I have been delayed, and I hold a FFL. No real rhyme or reason for it.

For people that are unfortunate enough to be named Charles Manson (I know one) that get delayed EVERY time, you can apply for a UPIN (Unique personal identification number) that will help reduce that. In most cases, give it a day, it gets fixed.

Stopped by my LGS Sunday last, met police officer bringing guy out in cuffs. Here in VA we do not use the FBI Instant Check System- it is run by the VA State Police. Guy stopped in to buy a gun- got a delay- shop got a call from VSP- we are on the way- there is an outstanding arrest warrant for him. He was still waiting when they walked in and took him.

Any info on how long a upin takes to get back? I sent my paperwork In 2 weeks ago it arrived nov 5th (I sent it tracked/certified)

denied and delayed are very different things. denied means you are probably not legal to purchase a firearm. delayed could be any number of things from an overworked backlog of background checks, a glitch in the system or a common name problem.
