It was rather embarrassing receiving a conditional non approval. I paid cash for a .380 and was told when I went back a week later I was told I couldn't take it home. I am a Florida resident and first time buyer. The only thing that may be affecting this is a.) I didn't use my social security number( but my name is rare) b.) I went AWOL in 2006 but only received an other than honorable discharge. C.) misdemeanors when I was a kid...... I don't get it! I really hope this doesn't take away my right to buy a weapon for my personal safety. I am not a troublemaker or convicted felon. Anyone with suggestions???? I'm pretty bummed out!!!
