Y'all need a new FFL if the insist on running NICS even if you have a valid WV permit. I tell customers specifically to get a permit so I don't have to deal with NICS.
As it happens, my LGS is in Inwood but I'm guessing it's not the one you use because he requires an e4473. His reasoning is that a lot can happen from the time a carry permit is issued and the time it expires so he would rather do the 10 minute check. But it is a choice on the part of each LGS.
