    After buying several handguns over the last few years, I bought a Glock17L from a local Texas Academy Store. As I filled out the forms I was told the FBI would be notified of my purchase! Is this a new policy on the part of the FBI or the store? By the way,:gotme: I've had a concealed permit since we could get one.

    Why would the FBI even care about your firearm purchase (cept maybe background check which is done when you buy one anyway from an FFL), to me if any agency would be BATFE and even then why.

    The FBI knows about every gun you fill out a yellow on. Why they told you this is beyond me.

    That was the only thing I could really think, anything beyond that sounds like some :bs:

    You are in Waco, they think you are going to have a stand off!

    Well, not exactly. With a CHL you just fill out the paperwork and the yellow gets put into a fireproof safe with a copy of the CHL and TDL. Without the CHL, the FBI is notified of your name, place of birth, birthday, social, and what you are buying, a pistol, or long gun. So, if you have a CHL, nothing is called in.

    I knew you didnt have to call it in, but you dont even have to send it in? I did not know that.

    Wow! Great for me!

    Thanks for that tip, kmbrman. I have never bought a weapon from Academy and now I don't think I ever will.

    The way I understand it, once you have a CHL you have been "FBI Investigated" to the hilt.

    That's what I thought, the concealed permit should cover you. Maybe this is someting new, perhaps. About the Waco thing Jason ,I don't think we will ever live this one down. I was even asked about the incident in Canada on vacation a few years ago.

    Another good reason to get a CHL.
