    I know back in the days, you could bring handgun same day of purchase.

    Now, it's just a piece of ID?

    Unless the state sees something on your background check they want to look at further, then you can still leave with your handgun purchase the same day. That is, unless that law has changed since I did exactly that a week and a half ago.....

    If your trying to say a few years ago if you had a CCL you could just walk into a gun store and buy a gun no BGC you are not making any sense..

    if you are saying it takes longer to get a background check blame Obama for the rush on guns and background checks..

    your not special all the cool kids have CCLs

    Just buy all yer guns from the classifieds here. No BGC. :thumbup:

    Every time ive ever purchased a new gun at a gun store the most time they have spent on the phone is 10 minutes usually less. If I know ill be rushed for time Ill just wait until I know I have time to enjoy it and look around at a more relaxed pace.

    It's just you. I'm normally in-and-out in 10 minutes on a handgun purchase w/ my CPL. Do you have a common name?

    Good point. I have heard of many people being delayed because of other people with a similar name.

    Long ago--before "instant" background checks, in Oregon---we are talking
    about the late 1980's into the 90's (not sure when the law changed):

    Way back then, there was a waiting period for handgun purchases. Five
    days IIRC. If you had a valid Oregon Concealed Handgun permit, they
    would waive the 5 day wait, and the sale was cash-n-carry. When they
    started the instant backgound check system, that changed and the permit
    no longer made a difference.

    With an Arizona CCW in ARIZONA - You do not have to have the phone call background check. You still need to fill the paperwork ut

    What I was told by OSP person
    In Oregon I was told that if having a CCW does not affect the process - because they do not know if you have committed a crime or other item that affects you eligibility fro CCW. Every firearm needs verification

    There is no difference on wait time with or with out CCW

    It is true - common names affect delays. While I hate putting my SS# down - I have a common name - and I know a person in another state has the same name and DOB - wanted on several DUI and other issues. The only thing that seperated me from him is SS#.

    Prior to getting my Utah CFP- online OSP-NICS took a few minutes, since then every online OSP-NICS has been almost instantaneous.
    Now all that changes when I go somewhere that isn't set up to do the online OSP-NICS and they have to call in, 10 minutes on a good day- 1 hours+ on a gun show day.

    What's a CCW permit? Neither Oregon or Washington issue such a thing.

    Yes they do.
    It's for s*x offenders, essentially a permit for their Concealed Cr*tch Wood.


    Silly boy.
