    Background Checks

    Is there any difference between the background check for a long gun and a handgun? I know that age is an issue but I assume the rest is the same. If anyone know it would be appreciated.

    Welcome to the board, I see that your new here. Remember that background checks are mandated ti be performes by all FFL's. If the FFL (including wal-mart) does not perform the check, they will face legal wrath.
    "Gun Free Zones" is where only criminals carry guns.

    For a semiautomatic rifle such as the AR-15, which I bought from RRA last year, it requires a 3rd photo ID (my CHP don't cut it since it does not contain a photo) as it is considered and assault weapon. Only having my military ID and driver's license, I drove a few min. back to the house to get my passport, which I did. After that, it was a snap.

    Is that a local thing? When I bought my AR I just used my military ID and my DL. I don't even have a third photo ID (CHLs don't have photo here either).

    That's crazy, here it's just your driver's license or state id. If you show your CHL, then all you do is fill out the paperwork and take your gun, many don't even run the check at all.
    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe

    Here in Ky you fill out the form, show them your Concealed Carry Permit and you're out the door. They don't have to phone it in.

    It varies from state-to-state.

    In Kansas we don't have a fast track via CCH. We all get to fill out a 4473 and get called in no matter what. (unless buying from a private party)
