    use their concealed carry permit to bypass the permit/background check for purchasing a pistol?

    In NC a CHL will let you bypass the NICS check for long guns, but not handguns, :wtf:

    If I can carry one concealed with the permit why can't I purchase one without a permit?

    Who knows it seems like a waste.

    But there have been people that will pass the check to get a concealed carry license and not pass the check to get a new gun

    Indiana just changed so you couldnt show your CCW to buy any gun. Sounds like a damn dumb idea to me, it will cause a higher volume of NICS calls and will cost dealers more money for all the extra background checks.

    In MN your CCL is a CCL and a purchase permit.

    A permit just means you passed NICS at the time you got the permit. They use the purchase-time NICS to make sure you haven't done anything naughty since then.

    We have instant check for any gun if buying from an FFL. Wait periods are waived if you have a permit.

    In Texas, the CHL will allow you to bypass the NICS on either handgun or rifle.

    As for wait periods, there are none with or without the CHL. If you dont have a CHL, the gun will be held until NICS clears. (5 to 10 mins) If no response, then the gun will be held for 3 days. If still no response from ATF after 3 days, then you're free to take the gun.
