    and I get a delay status from NICS! I went to a local shop on Tuesday and filled out the paper work. Called today and still no update on my background check. So now I have to wait until Dec. 30 to pick it up. The 3 business day wait is killing me since it doesn't include christmas and weekends. Oh I decided on a XDm 9mm all black.

    I'm not positive, but if the NICS is delayed, I think the FFL has to wait 3 days, after which point if the NICS isn't back yet, the FFL is compelled to complete the transfer. I haven't looked into it, since my NICS checks have always taken < 5 minutes :o

    huh, that's odd if you're clean, no felony arrests, no restraining orders etc.

    that sucks, i hate waiting for new toys, it's fun to fill out the paperwork and complete the transaction 5 minutes later

    They are legally entitled to release it after 3 days, but not obligated.

    Not really. In a state with no waiting period, I had to wait like 2 weeks to get my 10/22 because there was something wrong with NICS. When they run a check on you, they're checking multiple computers around the country, and if 9/10 come back clear and the last one doesn't come back at all, you get nothing that day.

    This.

    My FFL told me if he doesn't hear back from NICS then I can come pick it up after the 3rd business day. Now NICS could clear me early. I do not have a common name and gave my SSN.

    I'm guessing I got hit for some random "extra" screening or something. I know I'm clean but I guess it something I will have to deal with.

    Too much glock love in this thread LOL.

    I think I've also settled on an XD subcompact 9mm. I wrote them off initially due to size, but then I realized that only 2-3 guns fit my size criteria and they all had other problem areas that were a bit more important than comfort. Widened my preferences and the XD seems like the best option.

    I'll just eat a box of ding-dongs everyday for the next 6 months and I should be fat enough to comfortably conceal this little tank lol.
