    Hey John, I've never heard of that. I've only had to go through a store for one of my guns (had it shipped from out of state), and it was an instant answer, instant pickup.

    This was back in April of this year.

    Their computers may have been shut down for maintenance or the one store might have been having connection problems on that day. Neither Colorado nor Texas have waiting periods, but once in Texas I went in to buy a rifle and was told I'd have to pick it up after they manually did the background check, as they had been getting problems from their internet provider and couldn't connect to the database.

    John,

    Have never experienced this problem before, but it is most likely true that there was some automation snafu involved in the delay.

    Where did you take your CCW training?
