    I think it depends on your state but in TX they just write my CHL number in the blank

    The 4473 has a section where the dealer checks that no NICS check was required because they had a permit or license that allows purchaser to posses, acquire, or carry a firearm as approved by the ATF or if they have a approved Form 4 etc etc. Then they fill out the general info for the exemption.

    It's the only reason why I got my CHL.

    You have to fill out the form, but it doesn't need to be called in.

    CHP (concealed handgun permit) in NC means no NICS check for me.

    ND is the same way. I fill out the paperwork, provide DL and CCW Permit and off I go.

    If you buy more than one handgun from the same FFL within a week they have to notify the BATFE.

    In WA they still do the federal BG check, but the state one is waived (as is the 1 week wait period) if you have a CPL.

    at least here, you can't do 2 handguns at the same time, nor in the same 3 week period. :dunno:

    there aren't any such restrictions in this state but it's my understanding that ATF is notified if two handguns are transferred on the same 4473. i don't remember though if you are suggested to do two separate or if you have to do the other the next day to not have them notified.
