    So the other day I went to pick up a new rifle. The NICS came back as "delay". This isn't my my first purchase but it is the first for being delayed. Nothing has changed since any of my other background checks. Additionally I do have a pistol license. So my question...what is everybodies...

    Just heard on the radio that according to the FBI, Black Friday set a record for single day NICS checks, breaking last year's record by 5%. I did not hear the total numbers. Can anyone confirm? They said it was because of the Paris attack but some disagreed, indicating it was due to new laws or...

    I was just on NY Firearms.com and this title caught my eye. In Monroe County you can privately sell a handgun without a NICS check. My question is how can one County do this and the rest cannot? I probably know the answer, but any input? This is the way it should be done, like before the...

    I know someone who used to be a hunter back in the 60's/70's and from LI. They are older now and no longer use their rifles and about 20 years ago moved out of NY (about 1000 miles away). I have an opportunity to purchase these rifles for next to nothing. They are not considered illegal here on...

    I could honestly care less about our government shutting down.......I just wish they didn't get paid during their hiatus! The only concern I have is whether the National Instant Criminal Background Check System will be affected. Purchasing new Kimber 1911 today and don't want any unpleasant...

    Hello, I was at Middletown yesterday and I saw that Gandermountain had a good sale on a Ruger American. They did not have the caliber I wanted. 7MM-08 but I settled for the .243 due to an old shoulder injury. My shoulder may not be able to handle the 7mm-08 but I figured I can sell it later...

    I cant seem to find an answer anywhere. Since the bozos in Albany cam up with the bright idea of requiring NICS check for private sales, how will this be implemented? I understand that the seller and purchaser will have to go to a licensed dealer/ffl but since there is no state law of how the...

    I believe we, as pistol permit holders, started having to do nics checks when many upstate counties would not agree to issue renewable pistol licenses....They issued lifetime licenses and therefore the state said, okay, but now you'll have to do a nics when doing a transfer....I'm hopeing that...

    Everytime I get a NICS done, I without fail get a delay: in which I have to wait 3 days to pick up my gun The guy at the shop told me there is a process in which I can get a pin to avoid these delays I looked up the process and it look's like I need to submit a application with fingerprints...

    Figured I would share this with the group. Was just on the phone with NICS for about 30 minutes, most of that on hold. I asked the supervisor what was going on, and she said that things are VERY busy over there. Yesterday was the second highest number of background checks in one day (don't...
