    When you do a background check, is the form you fill out a 4473 or is that something different?

    If different, what is the form for?

    Thanks, Chuck

    When a person purchases a firearm from a dealer in Oregon, he has to fill out a 4473 Form provided by the BATF. The seller then calls the Oregon State Police who do 3 checks - Federal, State and - believe it or not - a credit check! I believe that the credit check is only to help establish identity - going bankrupt will not disqualify you. If there is nothing on the State or Federal check that disqualifies you, you can purchase the firearm.

    Please help me out with the language regarding a credit check as part of the instant check to purchase a firearm. That is the part I'm not swallowing.
