Re: wyoming gun purchase and have to wait!

I'm behind the lines, never had to wait but I have had it randomly happen to my friends and they have clean records. I have a ccp but it has no bearing due in part to the fact that its a state permit issued by county I believe.

Re: wyoming gun purchase and have to wait!

Prior to getting my cpl here in MI, I had endless issues with NICS. Initially all my transactions got "canceled" after the 3 day delay. They made me file an appeal. They ignored the law and provided no reason why my transfers were getting delayed and then canceled. I finally got an official response (registered letter) saying there was no problem with my background check and providing me a UPIN number. Went back to the FFL. No change. Delayed, canceled. After 3 months of going round in circles, my FFL got mad and called and spoke to a supervisor. The lady said that there was no reason why my transfers were not approved and she approved the 2 transfers I had been waiting on immediately.

That suggests that (legal or not) the FBI agents sometimes use some personal discretion (or bias) in deciding whether to approve/deny or cancel.

After I got my CPL, that was the end of the problem. I also had no issues with my background check for my CPL, no any that our company legal department ran on me, nor when I applied for my green card. So go figure.... But I assure you, if I go to any of the big stores (Cabelas or the like) who have a POLICY of running a background check regardless of whether you have a CPL, then even today I have the same circus.

It is possible that this systematic issue is more prevalent with FFL's who call in the transfer, as opposed to those who use the online system. I just have not met an FFL yet who is using the online system.

Re: wyoming gun purchase and have to wait!

Never had issue one but then I'm State and Fedreally Certified Examiner so I have to submit (not voluntarily) to a pretty intense FBI background check, annually.

...and I agree with Westcliffe, it's about discretion/bias on the part of the agent. If it was an electronic check in the purest form, it would be a non-issue. It's not. Once the human factor is infused in the process, things get dicey.

I didn't know you could get a permit for anything in New York????lol

Re: wyoming gun purchase and have to wait!

I've had a close friend get delayed, we'd both bought several firearms from that particular store before & since then. They couldn't explain it & neither can I...

May that particular "agent" was having a bad day? In the OP's circumstance, maybe your name resembles someone they don't like

Get a CCP, no more phone calls, no more hastle.

Re: wyoming gun purchase and have to wait!

mossberg mvp 5.56 heavy barrel fluted. i have many bolt guns and all are larger and this little guy will be fun to shoot. great little varmit gun. ammo easy to find at the moment. will be picking up a scope soon then get to test out! thanks for responding on issue. The rifle stock is what really pushed me into purchasing this rifle. its a little short but that can be fixed easily for me. I'm a bigger guy and believe the woman should shoot it better than me due to fit!
