Wait time for Background checks in Oregon

Submitted fingerprints and bgc app on Saturday at 1pm. I was roughly #275 in the que.

by 4:20 pm I got the call that it had cleared. (Picked up same day, 3 hours and 20 min from start to finish)

I’m a happy camper!! View attachment 731144
Why do you need to submit fingerprints for a background check for a semi-auto pistol???


Got in line a little over an hour ago, in the low 800’s. So possibly tomorrow afternoon or the day after. Used my CHL as my ID and it obviously didn’t help.
Just before GCA68 I bought a Herters U9 bolt action rifle with a Douglas premium barrel through the mail. One day it showed up at my house. I don’t know whether UPS delivered it or the mail carrier. It was a .458 and shot right out of the stock on the 3rd shot.

Just sayin’.

I wonder if them fellas doin all that shooting in Chicago are standing in line to get their AKs?
Going in tomorrow to do another. Realized I had been putting the wrong county, will put the correct county this time and see if it is still instant. I am just about a couple hundred feet into the next county, didnt realize until applying for CHL
