    Two day wait for background check

    Was by the LGS and they were telling me that it is now a two day wait for a background check. Probably most of the people are not at work because the Governor has restricted groups to no more than 10, so some have had to stay home

    Talk is that gun sales have gone through the roof. Non - gun owners getting with the program.

    Never heard of that before.

    Its got to be due to the folks in the ATF office not being there.
    It wasn't playing the blame game, finding fault, and complaining about every little thing that made America great.
    It was God, guns, and guts.

    There's a major, 2008-level, run on guns and ammo at the moment.

    The checks are slow because sales volumes have skyrocketed and there are fewer people working to complete them than normal.

    In Colorado, CBI does the background checks and you pay a fee

    We don't have to do them here if you have a carry permit. Most states have a deal with the ATF that if you have a carry permit, that is all you need. This was actually mandated but some states are not following it.

    Permit or not you still get checked-even after the fact. Carry permits only mean you were eligible at the time you got it as far as the ATF goes.

    Louisiana, if you have a carry permit less than 5 years old they enter that info on the 4473 and they don't have to call it in. Found that out when I bought my M&P 2.0 9mm this year. American Rifleman latest edition said January was the highest record ever. When I called S&W today after ordering a pistol case I asked if they were experiencing high sales the lady said things were kinda crazy. And a lot of on-line ammo sellers were reporting delays in shipping due high sales. Normally you see this in an election year but with the corona virus in the U.S. and increasing numbers of confirmed cases (over 6500 at last count that they know about) people have or are buying firearms and ammo which adds to the increased sales. In any event, stay safe and healthy. Frank

    Government has slowed down a bit. But it is mainly the panic buying again.

    No check here. Just hand them my carry permit, sign the paper and walk out the door with my gun

    At Our Gunshow this past weekend, almost everyone came just to buy ammo.
    One shop ran out of .223.
    I'm guessing people are stocking up "just in case"
    Smart thing to do.

    Not in the 38 states that are following the agreement or mandate. You hand them your DL and permit and walk out of the store with what you bought.

    We also have what is called a pistol buyers permit if you do not have a carry permit. You hand them that and your DL and you walk out with it. No other checks unless the store is antigun and calls it in anyway. Dicks and Dunham's and Walmart were like this.

    Oregon state Police and FBI do the background checks in Oregon.
    If you are clean it only takes a few minutes.

    Last night was told that CBI was not accepting checks until further notice. They had a back log of 7500 and not enough staff. The guy told a young couple buying their first gun that it would probably be 5 days to complete the sale. They were looking at a 9 mm and there was no ammo on the shelf.

    Oregon can still delay you to even if you are clean , I had a 3 month delay , instant check my rear , it is instant once in awhile have a name same as someone and even though your social is different its a delay . Mandatory waiting period for someone who already owns what a joke
