Hold Times on Handgun Purchases
Does anyone know what the deal is concerning hold times on getting a new hand gun? A friend refered me to someone who is liceinced dealer. I went this direction because he has offered good prices on weapons I have asked about. However, quanity wise, he does not sell many guns. Anyways, he orders my gun and it comes in. I go to pick it up and he calls in my info to the gov and gets a delayed. He is told to hold the gun for 5 days. He says he has been getting more and more delays over the past few months. Later in the week I go to a well know outlet who is offering the gun at very close to the same price (imagine that) with a friend of mine who is purchasing a hand gun. Paper work is completed the call is made and proceed!!! My friend walks right out with the hand gun the same day. SO I ask the salesguy who I have spoke to a couple of times and have a slight repore with asking what is the deal concerning delays and proceeds. He stated that nobody at that place gets manys delays but even if he does he will ask the person to shop for a half hour at which point he will call back in to enquire about the status and often get a proceed?!?!? WTH??? I was lead to beleive by the first dealer whom I am dealing with that once that initial call is made he is not to call back... The second guy makes it sound like he will call back on a whim!!! These are two very different outcomes for the same senerio. Can anyone provides some facts concerning what dictates delays or proceed in purchsing a hand gun please?
