    Happened to me because I had a common name. But all was worked out.

    If I remember correcctly they have 3 business days to approve or deny the purchase.

    For some people that is a common occurence. You should be cleared shortly. Just be patient.

    Yeah happened to me as well on a Ruger 10/22.

    As long as you don't have a domestic violence charge or have a felony you are good to go.

    Nodakguy: Your SSN is an optional field on the 4473 form, but often speeds things up if you have a common name. Just curious, did you include it on yours?

    I got a new handgun on Saturday and they said it wasn't instantly approved and last time it did. Nothing changed since my last gun purchase. Called me a day later and said everything is good to go. I wouldn't worry about it.

    This happend to me 1 time, but I was pretty sure it was B/C I bought a hand gun in FL 3 days earlier and was now buying a AK-47 at a range in GA. 2 days later and I was good to go. You should not worry at all. Better to know they are doing there jobs then to feel like anyone can just go grab a gun.
