Wow, last check for me took 3 minutes and I thought that was long. Didn't think Florida was taking that long.

An area shop has a notice on their website that background checks are slow and run even slower after 4pm. They are requiring background checks be started at 3:45 on week days so they stand a chance of being done by closing time

Slow planned and savored rewards are often more tasty than the fast food.

Here, our CCH permit is also our background check at a state level. NICS takes 45 seconds.

Yeah, we have a 10 day wait now for handguns and semi-autos since they are being done by the local PDs instead of NICs. Shotguns, lever guns, and single-shots are still NICs.
I read that last month set a new record for NICs checks, so its no wonder they are taking longer.

I should add that in PA we have PICS, the Pennsylvania Instant Check Service. Most normal times it is a 10 minute or less wait, but apparently it could be hours currently

Picked up the DW 357 pics didn’t do it justice and cylinders have dust in them :) I wouldn’t want to have seen the sellers underwear. Can’t wait to clean it up and post pics, it should be 99%. Looking forward to shooting it..

Most background checks today here in Tennessee were approved before the customer could finish filling out thier portion of the 4473. I had 1 denial, and one that went pending. That one took about 5 minutes to get the approval.
