    :hsugh: i tried to buy a mac 9 and a lower reciever for an AR15 and the transaction was "delayed" at the gun show... i have NO felony convictions, i was charged with agg assault about 3 years ago, all charges were dropped and im currently trying to get them expunged... i do have a disorderly conduct conviction, but thats only a misd. so i should be ok... right?

    should i try to buy a pistol again, or am i just shit outta luck and need to stick to rifles :wtc:

    Probably that you have a common name that might be confused with another. I hear they're relatively common.

    Fine then, the illuminati have decided you are a threat and have doctored your record to make you ineligible for firearm ownership. They are also plotting to implicate you for the kidnapping of the lindbergh baby. Expect black helicopters soon. And anal probing. :dunno:

    So, were you not able to buy them or do you just have to wait?

    im not sure... the faghat that i was trying to buy them from said they werent going to call me back unless they heard something by the next day(sunday). they never called back. im considering going to a local shop to try to pick one up, and ill wait as long as necessary.

    There was probably something either on your record they wanted to check, or the similar name thing. I hear at least in OR they are starting to delay a few sales for people with anything that could have been related to domestic violence until they can comfirm the charges weren't related to that.

    Sometimes you can get delayed just because they are busy, has nothing to do with you.

    my old boss had a weird weapons charge and gets delays, don't worry about it. the name thing is also very plausible.

    A delay doesn't mean much, if you get denied is when you have to worry about it. On a delay if they don't come back with either a proceed or deny within 3 business days the dealer can let you have whatever you bought (some are dicks and won't, but most will) Oh and Texas CHL counting as the NICS check FTW :bigthumb:

    in ga your ccw counts as a background check, but it takes so freaking long to apply for one and i dont have time to drive down to the county i 'live' in.

    also, is that 3 days thing a law? got a link i can print out to show a dealer if they dont want to do this?

    you can hide a pistol a lot better then the rifle. i florida we have 3 day waiting periods so maybe its that. go somewhere else and if they all you back tell them to piss off

    In the seventh paragraph. It is at the FFL's discretion, but they don't really have any reason not to do it.
