I get delayed every time I make a gun purchase but I have a very common name. I am also a Permanent Resident Alien not a Citizen yet and that always triggers a second look. Went to buy a shotgun today and got delayed again.

Its not a big deal to me but last time the delay was a whole 20 minutes. I suspect it will be a lot longer this time with all the crazy panic buying. Just have to be patient.

I understand if it goes longer than 3 days the store could still sell me the gun, hopefully it won't go that long.

You can buy a gun if you're not a U.S citizen?
Yes of course. There even a place on the form for your Resident Alien number. You do have to be a Legal Permanent Resident. Illegal aliens can only buy on the street.

FYI. I was delayed yesterday but Academy called me at 10am this morning and I now have my new shotgun at home.
