NICS DELAY...

Post by Yellowsevenpot » Fri Nov 03, 2017 7:07 am

Good Morning All,

Throughout the last ten years, at times I get delayed by the NICS. However, I am now delayed everytime, these delays are not switching to proceed, and local retailers by poilicy are starting to refuse transfer to me without a proceed from NICS.

I am of the understanding that the FBI is still not processing appeals and issuing personal identification numbers.

Any advice?

know the laws


If you do not have a current WASHINGTON Concealed Carry Permit, your application will be sent to your local law enforcement office for approval. They have up to 10 business days to return a decision. After 10 days, we are able to deliver the firearm at OUR discretion.

I got this from https://sporting-systems.com/faq/waitin ... ton-state/

this is what most places use but I waited over 15 days for a m 327 Taurus from the bullet hole in the valley

I guess my advice is ...Be patient and if they still wont deliver your gun be nice but firm and show them the law
Do not take your money back

I have my ccw.

My problem is coming from long delay times in the NICS and store policy. For instance sportsman warehouse will not transfer a firearm unless they get a proceed, and will leave the transaction open for the 88 days in NICS. North 40 will delete the transfer after 30 days and make you start over.

I have encountered this at other retailers in our area as well. Basically I am unable to purchase firearms due to the wait times.

I have encountered thus for a shotgun, two handguns, and a rifle.

Fill in the "optional" social security number portion. It helps identify you.

Do you have anything on your record that might raise a red flag that they have to investigate before letting you proceed?
Have you ever been arrested for anything?

Correct me if I’m wrong but with a delay you should get a Brady transfer date of about 5 days out, they can legally transfer the firearm at this time on NICS end, the state is a different monster.

Hey all thank you for tbe input.


I have been filling in the ssi number, and still get the extended delays.

I pled guilty to a dui in 1998.

However, I had 4 delays from 2000 to 2015, and in the last 3 years I have had 7. The last 7 remained in delay status. I was transfered 3 out of the 7. The other 4 the retailer would not transfer without a proceed from nics.

Retailers can transfer after 10 days, but do not have to.

A PIN (Personal Identification Number) will help in the future; you need to go through the process of requesting one from NICS and then ALWAYS putting it on the 4473 form on a gun purchase: https://www.fbi.gov/file-repository/vaf ... 5.pdf/view

And always put your SSN on the 4473 to help avoid possible name/ID confusion, too.

I am always somewhat amused by the private sellers (and for that matter the current Idaho gun purchase laws) who believe that a demand for a Concealed Permit keeps away the "Bad Guy". I worked at the gun counter of two different Spokane retailers and I had NICS (on the phone call) deny or even inform me: "That individual is prohibited from owning a firearm..." on four different individuals with a Concealed Permit attempting to purchase a handgun. Only one individual questioned the result, but even he was "How would they know about that?", in response. In other words, the purchasers had done something wrong/stupid after getting their Concealed Permit.

BTW, if you have Firearm Rights restored by the court via an attorney, NICS still will not approve your firearms purchase with out the NICS PIN from them.

I guess I may have to submit that form. I do not have anything preventing me from possession, besides criticizing Comey on facebook for his screwed up Hillary investigation.

I'm curious as to why you get delayed in the first place?? That I believe is where you problem starts, correct??

Now, my guess, is that some years ago you were full of bad life choices...maybe a few run-ins with the cops...who knows...but just enough bad decisions that now you get delayed when you purchase a firearm...

I think ya did this to your self pal...enjoy your past affecting your present...lmao :lol: :lol:
