That has happened to my husband before and he is LE officer...it could be the paperwork wasn't filled out right, ssn and name are similar to someone else that shouldn't own one...I wouldn't worry to much about it. good luck, I am sure your frustrated

Ffl said they were running 150,000+ NICS checks a day currently.

They're slightly overloaded.

Fed law allows a maximum of 7 day delay. If you've heard nothing by then, the dealer is to transfer the firearm to you.

We are personal friends with our local dealer and he helped my husband figure out what was wrong. Today should be your third day, right?? I would contact the dealer and check the status of your app. then ask if there is a way you can contact the agency directly to find out why there is a hold being placed on you. I believe the max time they have is seven days to process your app. then you can take action.

Did you put your SSN on the 4473? Your name may be similar to a bad guy and w/o the SSN they delay to confirm you are not he
