    So I went to the gun store to do the paperwork for a transfer on an AR lower. The lower was already at the shop. It's a one day wait in Illinois for rifles. So I had planned to go back tomorrow and pick it up. HOWEVER when I finished up with all the paperwork and everything else I found out I can't pick it up until Monday!!!...









    ...because there is a three day waiting period when there is a handgun on the same form :naughty: :hsd: :bigthumb:

    Hell no. You kidding. I have to take a case to the gun shop monday so I can legally tranport my AR LOWER home! I have a PA and NH permit, but I can only use them when I'm in Missouri (or other "free" state).

    I didn't even know you could put multiple guns on the same sheet, they make me fill out a 4473 for every gun I buy lol.

    Yep, but you have to take delivery of all of them at the same time, so my AR lower is being held hostage due to an unplanned handgun being on the same sheet.

    edit: at least in Illinois you can. Guess it could vary state to state.

    at least your not in CA. I had to wait 11 days for my 870, AND buy a lock. The guy said i could easily return it after i left the store and put the shotgun away.

    I brought a trigger lock in, and they STILL made me buy one because i didnt have a receipt and they said it may not be CA approved. argh.
