delayed NICS check

I always get delayed and forget to do anything about it. This time I didn't forget. I was delayed in July, waited my thirty days, and sent in my appeal to find out why. They report no record of the delay on my NTN number. ok, maybe somehow the number was wrong, but what gives? Did it get approved and the record deleted? I know I was delayed because I had to wait three days for the rifle to be released. What should my next step be? Try calling the numbers listed online? Anything specific I should say?

thanks,
Dave

There's a specific number you can obtain....I forget what it's called. It's written on the forms. I'm drawing a super blank. It's for people with super common names like me.

I get delayed but usually only for a few hours. The lady at the gun shop says it's due to my security clearance. I don't know about that but she says it happens. I usually just wait, but it's never been more than a couple hours.

My name (James Smith) has NEVER gotten me delayed. I usually go to the "further review" department, but I get my answer within 10 minutes. As long as this continues, I see no reason for UPIN. However I haven't bought anything during typical Gun Show hours, it hasn't been a problem. I bet if I went to a gun show and bought something, I wouldn't want to make a bet as to how long it may take.

The more files you have, i.e. BI, Clearance, Court Orders etc., the longer it takes for the computer to search. That is why the FBI keeps upgrading the system although it is never enough. Whenever you get put on delay, ask to speak to a supervisor and explain if you are one of the people that has many files. I'm my experience, they take a look and clear you while you are on the phone.

You guys with the all BOLO files, probably shouldn't stay on the phone long.

This is why I'm glad I have a completely unique name...

When it comes back you have a UPIN number to fill out on your next 4473 transaction. Welcome to the good life, in and out in 5-15 minutes like the rest of the world...

But seriously... All of us in the family have 100% unique names... it's odd, but I'll take it.
