    What's the reason for being delayed when called in for a background check?
    I gotten a lot of guns over the past few months and not had an issue. Today I stopped at the local shop to pick five AR lower receivers (gotta do it before the ban or heightened restrictions) and I'm delayed until next Friday.
    Any chance it's just from the number I've gotten over the past few months and five of these at once or something else???

    Maybe there is a backlog of paperwork due to increased demand.

    Kind of concerning. Not sure what the problem would be. Never had an issue in the past

    The Dems in charge (Holder, Obama and the brady bunch) have said that they need to:
    1) change the way people think about guns and
    2) do this under the radar.
    Who would really know what they are up to.

    (Note that #2 has worked on quite a few members of this forum).

    Delayed could be for a number of reasons.
    Your name is close to someone who cannot obtain a firearm is one example.
    Back logs, computer down, or a clerk is reading in the bathroom.

    If there was a real problem, they would disapprove.

    Most likely due to the number of items purchased at one time

    Got the call from the shop today. I'm good to go. I can pick them up whenever.

    I picked up an AR on Election Day and the phone line was jammed up. Waited for an hour to connect and almost an hour on hold. So it might just be a natural back up.

    A lot of times if you purchase frequently or multiple items there will be a delay.
    Or,if you haven't made a firearms purchase in a long time,it will get delayed. My father and cousin were both delayed last year,they haven't bought any firearms in many years.They were mad as hell,because I was able to get my new pistol,and they had to wait.
