I've been trying to find a pistol grip shotgun with a short barrel for varmits. Last Friday I found one at Gander Mountain (Mossberg 500). I did all the paperwork then went looking around while they ran the background check. When I came back the clerk said it had not gone through. He said it didn't show a problem but sometimes they take longer to run the check. He said they would call me when it went through and if the state or whoever did not turn it down within 8 days I could come back and pick up the gun even if they did not hear from them. I read on this forum something about there being a $5.00 fee for AOW's. Could the clerk not have done the paper work right. He said nothing about the $5.00 fee. Thanks for any help and I'm sorry if I posted this in the wrong thread.
