    Newbe from Florida question on nics wait

    I recently sent in my application for the CCW permit and then had a hand gun sent to a local dealer from another state for me to pick up. The dealer called in for the nics check and I got a delay respose. It has been three days since and we have not yet heard back with a final yet. The dealer said that he can release it to me but if something comes up later it can be confiscated by local police. Is this something I should go ahead and do or do I have the dealer try and contact them and see whats going on?

    Get your gun...if you KNOW that you've done nothing wrong in the past...don't worry about it.
    If your past has some 'designer luggage' in it...be careful!

    Got to agree with retsupt99. If you have a clean record get it, if in doubt, wait.

    After doing a lot of research I don't THINK I have anything to worry about. Got arrested doing something stupid 28 years ago back in the day smoking something not so legal on the beach one day. It got dismissed as far as I remember. Nothing ever since that. I hope that won't stop me from being able to get my permit.

    Welcome from South Carolina.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    The State can take up to three working days to give an answer, starting the day after your application was submitted. No big deal!
