I don't have my CWP yet. I'm currently living in Washington. I was told 2-4 days waiting time for a background check for the handgun i bought Wednesday ( 2days ago ). Is there any way to speed up the process for me without my CWP? I'd really like to have some range time this weekend to break it in and have some much needed fun. I'f it doesn't go through today then i'll have to get it on Monday or Tuesday and wait till next weekend or even worse two weeks from now till i can find some more time. By law, an FFL must receive a response from the NICS within 3 days or the firearm sale can proceed, although they are not required to do so. If, after 3 days, the sale is completed and later it is determined the buyer should not have received the firearm, then the firearm must be retrieved. If a buyer is denied the firearm, the buyer can appeal the decision. Just stumbled upon this. I'f this is true i could get it tomorrow if the background check doesn't come by today... right? I know my background check will come back approved.
