i learned something new. in tigard if a gun store buys a well at least handgun from someone. they have to put a 15 day hold on it. of course the store still puts it on the shelf up for sale. and by the time your all stoked and digging out your wallet they spring on you that you have to wait. grrr.. now i could have chose to pick something else, or pay $90 more for the same thing & take it home with me, but then i wouldnt have anything to bitch about today.
woo hoo next saturday i get more food for my safe :?
oh, and thanx for reading my rant
As I understand it Portland and Beaverton as well as many other city's have a 30 day hold on any used item.
This police hold gives the police time to run the serial number of said Item to make sure it has not been reported stolen.
Guitars, amps, cameras, radios and firearms all fall under this.
It used to be 15 days, but many Police departments asked for the longer time to proses the information and to give more time to crime victims to report the item stolen.
It more like in Portland if you have a break in they will not come out for that unless the robber is there, they will tell you to call it into your Insurance company.
So it has to go to them first and then to the cops.
As I also understand it, they are not to display the item for sale until the police hold is over.
At least that is my understanding of it, on the one hand it sucks when you are the one wanting to buy, but if it were your stolen pistol, I am sure you would have a very different point of view.
