    Wish I could but the law doesn't allow renewal until your current permit expires. And no, replacement permits don't apply. Bummer. The bad thing is, for some reason I get delayed every time.

    Since you are not going through NICS I don't know if a Unique Personal Identification Number (UPIN) would help, but you could ask it is recoginized. If it is get and app and apply for one. It requires the dealer to spend a few more minutes on the phone, but eliminates the delays or denied apps.

    Sig, when did this law pass or go into effect? I was not aware of it.

    Thanks

    I get delayed EVERY time I have the 'instant check' performed......sometimes it's as few as 45 minutes, but on occasion I have had to come back the next day.....

    Interesting topic,

    The only problem I've had with buying any firearm was a few years ago. I filled out all the paperwork and the background check came back good and I was out the door with new gun... About a month later I got a letter in the mail from the store I bought it from with a copy of the form I filled out and a note asking me to mark where it says "foreign country" on the birthplace section, and send it back to them!?!

    I was born in Guam, which is not a foreign country! So I called the store manager at Scheels to talk to her about it. I told her that Guam was US territory and has been for quite some time now and we cleared it up. I did send the letter back along with a Wikipedia print out about Guam to educate them about the area. The store is right next to a military base so I'm sure they're going to run into someone else who was born there sooner or later.

    I was delayed at the gun show for both of my last purchases. The last one I made, I used my CHP as one of my two IDs because, Number 1, I had thought about buying two pistols (one gun a month does not apply to CHP holders) and Number 2, I thought it would prevent being delayed(it didn't). All I can figure, is that my mailing address is a Dinwiddie post office, but my house is actually in Amelia. This might raise a flag with the check. I keep meaning to stop by the state police office at one of the shows and ask if they know why I keep being delayed, but I have not done it yet.
