I went to buy a m&p9 today well no one had one in my area so I settled for the 19 it was a good deal. Blue label gun 425 with 3 mags and another 60 for night sights installed. I got delayed. Everytime I buy I get delayed. So I started having my wife buy my guns, well I couldn't do that this time sense I had to show my military I'd for the discount. So I wait 3 days and then drive another 45 min. To pick it up. Does this happen to anyone else?

There are plenty of gun shops around here and most will install the sights for free if you purchase them there or the gun. All in stock Glocks have been on sale for $499.00 ( gen 3). We have a 48 hour wait on hand guns. I hope they change the law so ccw permit holders can just past the back ground check and take it with you not have to come back two days later.
It usually takes them longer to run my credit card, then it does for me to fill out the 1-page form after I lay my permit on the counter.

In Missouri the permit doesn't matter. I have mine and asked if it would work...no go. It was a Gen 4
I am looking to add a gen 3 G19 to my arsenal but everyone that has reasonable prices are always sold out. I am even on the lookout for a used one and they get snapped up fast. In fact I prefer a used gun that has all the kinks worked out of it.
Yoda, I am, yes.
Im in northern Ky. Wife bought me a G19 Gen 4 for xmas. LGS had to trade with a GS in Cleveland to get it and it took a week. What that tells me is that we are making a good choice with the G19.
I vote for a thread title change. I came in here armed with my BS stamp thinking someone was having issues with the operation of the GLOCK 19 pistol, instead they were having issues purchasing a pistol.

I have several Glocks, including a 19, and they shoot ok, and always function, but, I prefer the ergonomics of the M&Ps. Plus, you can drop an apex kit in an M&P and get a LOT better trigger pull!
If you always get delayed then you can get a personal ID number to make things go smoother. I've never needed one but I'm sure someone can chime in to help you out. IIRC JD knows about getting a PIN.

I also have other hand guns that shoot great and have good triggers, but for the price... the Glock makes a great carry gun. I don't care about holster rash or worry about the finish. Just shoots.
The point of this thread is the purchase delay, not the M&P vs Glock thing, right?
I also live in MO and I used to get delayed on every purchase. When I got my permit, the problem area surfaced and I got it cleared up, so I fly through every time now. But you've got your permit, so you're past that.
I was told a while back that for some reason ex-military and some LEO types usually get delayed. No reason was given, but the guy who's my FFL and does all my mail order purchases told me and he does a few every day. So I believe him.
timmy is right, get a federal background PIN and you should be good to go. Any gun shop should have the form you need. May be a download from the net. Could take a few weeks to process, but no hassles from then on.
