Airport check-in is the process whereby passengers are accepted by an airline at the airport prior to travel. The airlines typically use service counters found at airports. The check-in is normally handled by an airline itself or a handling agent working on behalf of an airline. Passengers usually hand over any baggage that they do not wish or are not allowed to carry in to the aircraft's cabin and receive a boarding pass before they can proceed to board their aircraft.
Check-in is usually the first procedure for a passenger when arriving at an airport, as airline regulations require passengers to check in by certain times prior to the departure of a flight. This duration spans from 15 minutes to 2 hours depending on the destination and airline (with self check in, this can be expanded to 24 hours, if checking in by online processes). During this process, the passenger has the ability to ask for special accommodations such as seating preferences, inquire about flight or destination information, accumulate frequent flyer program miles, or pay for upgrades. The required time is sometimes written in the reservation, sometimes written somewhere in websites, and sometimes only referred as "passengers should allow sufficient time for check-in".
The airline check-in's main function, however, is to accept luggage that is to go in the aircraft's cargo hold and issue boarding passes.
In-town check-in service is a service offered by some cities such as Abu Dhabi, Seoul, Hong Kong, Delhi, Kuala Lumpur–International, Stockholm, Vienna, Toronto and Taipei, where passengers may check in luggage in designated places within the city but outside the airport. This reduces check-in time and queuing at the airport.
Rep. Robert Garcia (D-CA) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) are pushing legislation to require background checks for ammunition purchases.
They are joined by other Democrats, including Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL).

So, I stumbled across a lot of old Winchester and Remington-Peters .45ACP cases on eBay. Anything of any cartridge-collector value here or are these more "chop up and make earrings, tie tacks etc. out of the caseheads" grade, and is a quarter per piece shipped a fair price or a BS Ripoff...
Hello all, my name is Pete and I am a native Oregonian. I have belonged to NW Firearms for a while, but have not been on in years and so I am doing the awkward reintroductions. Thanks for any help you can give me. I do have a first question, I am needing to find the value of my guns, is there...
The government should allow firearms trades without a FFL and or background check.
In a trade situation, both parties already have a gun. So, why do both have to get a background check?
If I trade my Colt SAA for your Winchester model 94, we both have to get a background check and pay an FFL...
I bought this Seattle marked Detonics Combat Master back in 2010-ish when they were still fairly available. I was able to find spare grips (original and a set of Hogue grips that were modified to fit), extra bushings and screws, back strap, and a second magazine that was blued (the one marked 45...
It has been a while since I purchased my last firearm, so I was wondering if any US Green Card holder in here recently purchased a bolt action rifle in WA, and if so how long it took for the background check to clear? I am an US Green Card holder (legal permanent resident) and last time I got a...

I ask that everyone check their ballot status and seebif your vote counted, becaise that's too suspicious. I did not...
Like many, I was in the queue for my background check last Tuesday, I was 7,090 in line just off the phone with my FFL today, I'm 6,783, which amounts to almost 5 business days. The state has processed 307 background checks or about 61 a day some other posts mention they should be able to...
If you want to cancel the purchase of a firearm, after the background check has been initiated but not cleared, how long before you are likely to see a refund come through? What fees are you likely to incur by canceling purchase?
There are a bunch of firearms stuck at FFLs who are not doing no response releases. If a background check has been started, can a different FFL go and pick up the firearm and start a new background check for the transforee? @J&B Firearm Sales Inc. @alelord
The following information is taken from two publications: OSPs 2020 FICS Program Overview – Year end report, and the 2021 FICS Program Overview – Year end report. (FICS Firearms Instant Check System). These are year end mandated reports.

Maybe someone could help me out with some advice.
I purchased a rifle from Sportsman’s in August. I’ve never had a issue with BG checks. But it came back as being delayed. The Sportsmans manager called me to tell me and said expected delay date was mid October and gave me a number for OSP to...
