    Is it a hold or a denial?

    The municipality that holds the court record of the infraction?
    That's who you will have to deal with to get anything expunged.

    From what I understand, this has been happening A lot lately. I got a hold at the last show for no reason too. It sucks!

    The Feds switched recently to a deeper level of computer records searching, which confuses a lot of similar names across different states. As of a couple of years ago, the Oregon State Police Firearms Unit would make the calls for you and sort it out for free (paid for by your ten dollar fee), BUT things might be different now due to budget cuts. Call the OSP Firearms Instant Check System at 1-800-432-5059 and ask for the "Challenge Line" and you will reach a nice person who will listen sympathetically to your issue. NOTE: these are actually nice people who want to help you, so don't DUMP on them or treat them rudely---it's not their fault that computers are easily confused.

    In my case the Federal computer dug out a missing checkbox from 1972 that had to be checked! Three different states were involved, yet the nice person at the OSP called them all and sorted it out for me. Things may work out for you better than you dread............................elsullo

    Another different issue: technically a "hold" can only last two weeks, I think, and then the seller can release the gun to you no matter that they got no resolution from the Feds. BUT, most sensible dealers will keep holding the gun anyway even though they are not required to, just to be on the safe side and keep right with the Feds..............................elsullo

    Every time I buy a pistol, it gets authorized right away. When I buy a rifle, I get delayed, every time.
