Gun Held Hostage
 
I bought a gun and the owner shipped it to a local FFL which I have never used before but they are a mile away from my house so I thought I would use them.

Gun was just delivered and I called to confirm. Well guess what, the owner won't be there until sometime next week. Never bothered to mention that when I called for pricing and told them I was having it shipped there. Employees say they can't do the transfer.

Am I SOL until he gets back? Can I get another FFL to drive there and pick it up?

I assume that if the employees cant do a transfer to you then they probably cant do a transfer to another dealer. You might be SOL until the owner gets back. I could be wrong though.

Welcome to the he11 that is my world.

We always have to wait ten days. They call it a cooling off period. Thatís after the dang'd wait for the supplier and shipper.

Can you believe I had to wait ten days for a lower receiver? How stupid is that?

If the employees won't transfer to you, they aren't going to release it to another FFL holder either Boss.

Sorry to say, in this situation, you are SOL until the owner gets back unless you can get s/he it instruct the employees to release said weapon...

While it might be twisting the knife a bit, I have to ask....:o

What did you order??? :D

I bought a AKM underfolder from a non-dealer. Was hoping to go shoot it tomorrow but alas, held hostage.

Ohhhh man, that is torture! Yup, nuthin' you can do, its on his books now so HE has to xfer it out. You would even have to wait to xfer it to another dealer. Great customer service huh?

Gives you more time to build the anticipation though ;)

That sux. Here in the Peoples Republik of Kalifornia our firearm has to sit in gun jail for ten days before we can pick it up. :mad:

doesnt everyone who works at a gunshop have to have an FFL?......or is that only here?

Also demand to be compensated for your loss and hold your hand out towards his neck and pretend to crush it.

You don't have to have an FFL to work in a gun shop - you can work under the owners FFL, like a PA can write prescriptions under the Doctors license. Do you think all the WalMart sporting goods dept. employee's have FFL's???

Sounds like the owner does not trust his employee to do the paperwork properly. IMHO if you cannot trust him, why do you employ him?
