Well then that's dumb as hell!No it said "in stock" at that location. It said "buy now, pick up in store today".
I had the same experience in Albany a couple weeks back, I should have bet them lunch too haha. They didn't believe me when I told them I would be instant approval. It also still took about and hour to finally get out of there with all the fumbling around, and I was on a mission to get in and out as quick as I could.There’s a guy in the Salem store who still owes me lunch. I bet him lunch that I’d get an instant background check and he said that “no one is getting instants, I haven’t seen one in months”. Anyways, I’m still hungry. That was my first firearm buying experience there and probably the last. Even with an instant approval, it took over an hour to complete. I was not a tire kicker either, I went there because they had a specific model in stock.
