    Electronic background check? Maybe a hitch in the giddyup.

    I'd say it's just that the system is a bit backlogged and/or overwhelmed right now, nothing to worry about. Every time I go to my local range/gunshop I'm amazed at how busy they are selling guns and how packed the range is. Everyone is buying guns right now! Even people I work with who I would never think of as gun owners are approaching me about how to go about buying a gun.

    One good thing about Tx is that a CHL circumvents a background check on firearm purchases,you just show your CHL he writes down the number and your outta there wit your new baby

    I'd ask him what the nature of the delay is.

    I don't put my SS# on the 4473.

    It's never been a problem.

    I don't like to put my SSN on the 4473 either, but I was told by a NCIS Investigator a few years ago that if someone has a security clearance (I do), then it's better to put the SSN on the 4473 "just in case"....I guess someone had something happen on a NICS check and/or security clearance review that caught a snag from a 4473 with no SSN??

    The SSN# is the best way to positively separate your identification/name from that of someone else with the same name you have. Since the NICS check is a nationwide search database, it is very likely there are others with the same name as you and some may be felons.

    I had a delay on buying a firearm earlier this week. Never had one before, even several times during the last 6 months when I think firearm sales were busier than now.

    The dealer who sold me this gun said about half the ones he's been calling in lately have been delayed.

    I remember the Clinton years when he put the screws to FFL's being held by one-man shops: yanked a bunch of their FFL's, raised the price on those who were left.

    Call me a conspiracy nut if you want, but I wouldn't put it past the almighty jackasses in power now to try to harass gun owners anyway they can.

    That is odd. We have had no delays whatsoever lately, except for one, and I know why he had a delay.
