My last couple purchases that required a NICS check took 45 days to go through, I had to do the paperwork twice on these last two occasions, my last purchase consisted of 2 stripped lowers, the dealer called their contact at the state level to try and help, he was allegedly able to clear up my state records so I should get instant approval on handguns now due to my permission slip from the state (under number 20K, slightly) but we still have the 48 hour wait. And he stated he would try to get federal better for me too. The day after that, I got 2 approvals within minutes of each other at 2 different stores.
One for the lowers, and another for a romanian piece of stamped steel and wooden furniture that I wanted. I have my eye on a handgun, so maybe I'll see if it helped on Monday if I have the coin to do it.
Anyone wanna try to lobby our legislature to waive the 48 hour wait for license holders like Michigan has, We jumped through their hoops, so maybe they can throw us a bone now?
