    Every time I've ever made a purchase I've Been delayed anywhere from an hour to a couple days by the NICS system. Yesterday i was denied, i was extremely upset as i had been waiting months for a particulate rifle. Its inn and i cant get it because of of some bureaucratic crap. I have a Texas CHL, i purchased some firearms in late September of this year.

    I'm currently getting my (Army) secrete clearance worked on as its been 10 years. I don't know if that could be it, doubtful since it been getting worked on since May. Either way I filed an appeal, I "should" get a "After further review we have found you to be eligible" letter next week.

    I've been getting tired of being delayed and this denial was the nail on the coffin. I submitted my Volunteer Appeal File for my UPIN so this never happens again. But their backlogged so it might be a while. Anyone ever have too deal with something like this?

    Thanks for the ear.

    If you have a Texas CHL you only have to fill the paperwork out. I've bought dozens here in Texas and haven't had NICS run once.

    Lessee here- you're a member of our Armed Forces & our benighted federal government is denying you permission to purchase a rifle? Sounds like an officer is somehow involved. :confused:

    "Officers- screwing up simple $hit since 1775!"
