After reading Pandamonium's post about waiting nine weeks, I guess I can't complain too much, but just a little. Went to pick up the new XDM9 3.8 Compact just now. Delayed. Not a big deal, but consider the following purchases in the last few years: Long Gun- Ruger 10/22= delayed (first new purchase in more than five years) Long Gun- Remington LTR- No Delay Handgun- Kel Tec P3AT= Delayed Handgun- CZ-75= Delayed Long Gun- Stevens 200= No Delay Multiple "Other"- five AR lowers= No Delay Handgun-Ruger LCP= Delay Handgun- FEG 9mm= No Delay Long Gun- Ruger M77= No Delay Long Gun- Remington 870= No Delay Handgun- S&W 1911- Delay Handgun- CZ-75= Delay Handgun- S/A XDM9- Delay Multiple "Other"- 3 M98 receivers- No Delay Long Gun- Stevens 200= No Delay Long Gun- Howa 1500= No Delay Handgun- XDM9 3.8 Compact- Delay Seems a little coincidental to me. I have been delayed on every handgun purchase except one in the last four years. Some of the other stuff was purchased up to and including three in one week. Multiple sales went through fine on two occasions. Is this just complete randomness and ***-hatted inefficiency on behalf of the government or a purposeful attempt to institute an unofficial federal waiting period for handguns? Worst part is, it was 40 degrees and sunny today. Supposed to get 14" of snow Friday. Damnit.
