I know this has nothing to do with this thread but, Bud that avatar picture is awesome.
I also live in Va & for me the 'instant' check is NOT. Everytime I have it done there is a delay, anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour & a half.....:scruntiny:Scott said:Nope. When I lived in VA my insta-check was truly instant. In Mo it takes a little longer. So it goes.
mine goes though instantly too i suppose the II at the end really helps with that alsodr_cmg said:When I purchase a gun my NICS approval is instant. Several times I have had dealers say that most of their approvals were taking 5 to 30 minutes and I tell them mine won't. They look at me sort of strangely and make the call. They have an even stranger look when the approval comes back almost before they finish giving the info from the 4473. I believe it is because I really put in my full name and my middle name is unusual. I am also a junior so that makes the name even more unusual. SSAN really makes it easy for the check to go through when combined with my name. It takes the dealer longer to write the approval number down than it takes for the approval to come.
It wouldn't torque me off so much, except they are charging you a $2 fee for INSTANT check, that for me isn't! It is REALLY bad when I am carrying another weapon at the time of purchase! Not to mention I've had a carry permit since the early 1990s.goawayfarm said:I also live in Va & for me the 'instant' check is NOT.
