Title: NICS
Post by: tombogan03884 on May 14, 2020, 12:38:10 PM
Just walked up to the LGS to do paperwork my new toy.
Couldn't bring it home, NICS is backed up 24 -36 hours.   :-\

That's one thing I do like about Georgia's weapons license. It stands in place of the NICS check.

**If GA ever went Constitutional carry and the option to retain the license were there, I'd keep it renewed if it still functioned in that capacity.
I know this should all be moot in the grand Constitutional realm. The 2A should be all there is, but for now this is the speed bumps to be navigated over.

With the FOID in Illinois, we shouldn't have to deal with NICS.  We have already been checked and cleared, and the card is tied to the system that flags NICS.  If you go the next step for the Concealed Carry License, it is even more secure, because it requires the same questions, plus finger printing.  Both cards require photos that are suitable for, and have been run through, facial recognition.

I have never been run through NICS.   All my transfers have been in GA.    Almost did one in FL, but Hillsborough County had a 3 day waiting period and I told the dealer no thanks.

Same here in Kansas.

I bought a little something a couple weeks ago and NICS only took 15 minutes or so. I wonder what changed?

Pegleg, NH is Constitutional carry, but I renewed my permit anyway in case I want to carry outside the state.
Still have to go through NICS though, which sucks.

BAC, I have NEVER gotten out that quick   ;D
Maybe end of the month you caught a slow spell ?

It depends on your regional office.  On the same day you will hear people talking long delays while someone in another part of the country walks in and out.

MA we have to do NICS and the MA state registry as well.  Working they system on a busy day, with a stodgy internet connection can sometimes take better than an hour to complete a transaction.  Better than waiting three days to take home your firearm but it do suck...

We sold 160 guns on Black Friday but the state and the Fed gear up for that...it took our whole team to set that record for our store.

In PA 15 minutes IS a long delay. Of course all NICS checks are done by the state police and their “not a registry, we promise” system.

Well BAC, as I wait yet another day I just can't feel any sympathy for you if it results in checks THAT fast.   ;D

I am just glad the atf is ubder a year for nfa stuff.

I dont miss the ca 10 day bs, where the doj check was instant, but the back child support was 3-5 days and the dmv was always last day.  Dmv kick were always the most common.   Like 90% of them.  It was almost always  a ticket they got 20 years ago they did not take care of.   If you are wondering why child support was a kick back, you are techincally in violation of a court order

To hell with Ca. Finally done with those A Holes.

The miner's came in 49,
The whore's in 51,
When they got together,
They begat the native son .   

Finally picked mine up yesterday, just about 24 hours.

Its sad that the liberals have done to ca.  When i was a kid i use to rid my pick down folsom Blvd  in front of the capitol with my 22 strapped to my back to kilk ground squirrels  in west Sacramento. The yolo county erosion  contorl guys would trade shells for tails.  Can you imagine what would happen now?  Hell even had a state police( now rolled in to chp) give me a ride home after dark when i had a flat on my bike.  I was so sure my ass was going to get it for not being home before dark.  This was not quite  30 years ago.

Sailor's, Miner's, and Logger's have always been centers of socialism since the days of the Wobblies, so Ca was kind of doomed to begin with, Eastern states got 1 or 2, not all 3.   ;D
Over the last 60 years I have watched the Mass state line move from it's map location up to the middle of NH   :(
It pissed off several people who asked if I favored wall on the Southern border.
Hell yes, and one between us and Mexico too.   ;D
