wyoming gun purchase and have to wait!

When buying a bolt action rifle from local sporting goods? i have to wait every time. Basically i have to wait a week and some don't. Not sure why this happens. my record is clean and wondering is something else is going on other than just slow background check? thanks.

I've never had to wait longer than a phone call by the store personel. Stand there and listen to the call, walk out with a firearm. If you have a CCP, there is not even a call. Ask the store owner's opinion. That don't seam right for WY.

I would second everything above said. Never had to wait in Montana - even before I had a concealed carry permit. Something isn't right.

Get a concealed carry permit and then there will be no wait. Bruce

I don't live in Wy. but that seems a little odd you would have to wait. That said I don't understand why it would not be called in even with a CCP I think all the states are required to call into the feds, or am I missing something here? I have a lifetime CCP and have had for the last 35years or so but, they still make the call, no waiting but it is still called in.

Re: wyoming gun purchase and have to wait!

A NICS check is a phone call or e-mail with almost immediate response and should be everywhere (excepting) probably the Communist states out east......

I'd get a CPL and call it good. Great second picture ID plus it streamlines every purchase. Here in Michigan, a CPL gun purchase puts you at the 'head of the line'. Less paperwork for the FFL seller.

Thats fishy.

I'd be taking my business and dollars elsewhere.

It depends upon the state. More reasonable states exempt those with CCP's from the background check requirement so all you have to do is show it and they hand you your gun. Some states still require the background check call to NICS.

For the OP, I doubt Wyoming has anything to do with the delay. It's more likely the FBI NICS center giving the dealer a delayed response. When you make the NICS call they can tell you "proceed", "delayed" or "denied". If the response is delayed then you have to wait three business days until you can hand over the gun. What flags someone for a "delayed" response is a bit of a mystery known only to those running the system. It could be anything, someone with a similar name might be wanted on a warrant and it flags you because of it. When I was in the Marine Corps I had an FFL and I'd get guns for other guys in my squadron. I often got delayed responses with the guys that had top secret clearances, something about that seemed to flag them in NICS and they'd get the delayed response.

We let the camel's nose under the tent when we let the brady bill become law enabling these background checks. Now you're at the mercy of "the system" which has no accountability. They can arbitrarily deny or delay your firearm purchase and you really have no recourse, they don't have to tell you why or justify their actions. Most seem to accept these things as the norm now. It's shifting the bar incrementally like this that will have us one day waking up finding that our firearms rights have been legislated out of existence.
