    Hey guys I'm new around these forums. I went last week to purchase a handgun. I am taking my CHL class in a couple weeks and I filled all the paper work out and got delayed. I have a couple of questions about the delay. How long does it usually take to hear something back? Is there anyway to speed the process up?

    You should receive a response withing 3 business days; Proceed or denied.

    If the dealer does not hear back within 3 business days he can transfer the firearm to you on the 4th.

    Good luck.

    BUSINESS DAYS, Saturday and Sunday are not counted. It sounds like Friday was your 4th day, so tomorrow I would go pick up my gun. Don't CALL, go.

    Academy has been known in the past not to release the gun until they have approval.

    I can tell you as a matter of policy the FFL I used to work for wouldn't release the gun until getting an "Approved". The FBI/BATF have a nasty habit of issuing a "Denied" several weeks after the initial "Delayed" then trying to burden the FFL with retrieving the gun!

    yea i called academy today and asked them about it and they said until they have approval they will not release it. Is it going to look bad on me to go try and purchase else where??

    Walmart also joined the "mayors against (Il)legal guns" and passed a similar policy.

    Can't you call ATF and get a UPIN # for a purchase if there is an issue that is not clearing? thought I remembered hearing something about that...

    Get your CHL and bypass the NICS check, fill out the form and take your gun home
