    I read that FFLs can charge up to $10 per NICS check... Can anyone clarify? Does this mean for each transaction or for each firearm transferred (since multiple firearms may be listed on a single NICS form). (A transaction is defined as a single time of purchase which could include one or...

    Say you go buy a gun and pass the NICS check, then at the same time you want to buy some ammo (when the NYS Background Check system is setup) and you fail the NY Background check ? It seems to me that NY State making the the law for the back ground check, then in charge of the system to approve...

    Just went to pick up a used P229, but the NICS came back with a delay. I know it's not a big deal, but this is the first time I got delayed. I always use my SS# in an effort to avoid this. I guess I'm just frustrated because I really wanted to get my new toy to the range today. Bummer.

    OK, I am not an FFL and have never played on on TV. But I have purchased a bunch of firearms and handguns over the years and those instances are my only experience with a NICS check. Having said that I am asking some of the sites FFL's to explain to me in factual details of what the process is...

    Hey folks in the Rochester area... have you found any dealers willing to do same day private sale NICS checks? I ask in relation to the Mosin-nagant group buy. Right now Jackson's is slated as the place for NICS checks, but Jackson's requires a three day hold to do so. I don't need to tell you...

    Dealers were notified today the the NICS Center will be fully operational and will not shut down if the Government happens to have a shutdown tomorrow. Business as usual for firearms.

    I'm getting ready to buy two registered handguns from a friend, and have been though the Albany County permit amendment process many times before, when buying privately from non-dealer sellers....submit the application, wait for judge to sign a purchase coupon... Has the SAEE ACT changed that...

    I keep on seeing threads regarding the requirement for a NICS check for stripped receivers and I have posted why I believe they are not subject to a NICS check as long as the sale is within NY state and between NY residents. Here is my justification from another post (apologies for the...

    I get delayed about 95% of the time on the NICS checks on both long guns and handguns, I just recieved my "Unique Pin Number" from the FBI a couple of days ago. It took three months and four days from the day I mailed the application to the FBI in West Virginia to the day I recieved the aproved...

    A good friend, who lives in Westchester County, just sold a handgun to a Dutchess County resident, and bought a handgun from a widow in Westchester County. Both amendments were done with simple BOS's, neither of the two transfers were done at an FFL. Both counties issued the coupons without...

    Has the NICS processing been fluid and quick for those who've made purchases recently? Here in New Jersey folks are being delayed 10 to 30 days just on background checks now. Just curious.

    I bought my mini-14 a few years ago new from a gun store. They did the required NICS check before they sold it to me. How long does the store hang onto that information? Is there a permanent record that the serial number on that particular gun was sold to me? Does the state keep a database...

    Why is it that authoritarian politicians always use the terror of terrorists to scare people into submission more effectively than terrorists themselves? I'm so tired of this bull****!

    Sen Schumer proposes that people on the terror watch list and/or the no fly list be denied on the NICS check. (There are so many lists in the bloated government I can't keep them straight). The problem legally for what looks reasonable superficially is that there is no way to know whether you...
