What a lot of people forget (or claim to) is that the 10 day wait is UP TO 10 days, not mandatory 10 days. The FFL has to follow all State and Federal laws when it comes to delivering firearms. So if the State passes a law that the gun can't be transferred until the buyer performs a double backflip, well... you better start stretching.

Or we can challenge said law in court as discrimination against disabled people.

And now we can worry that FFLs will be subject to not only state and federal laws, but also nonsense imposed by their credit card processor. So if state and federal laws say a backflipping 19-year-old can purchase a rifle, but whoever controls the merchant account says they can't, well...

On a more relevant note, the part about local LEOs "shall" conduct a background check on handgun purchases, that should maybe say "can" conduct a background check. Rumor has it some of them take that pistol transfer form and move it straight from the envelope to the trash.

the LEO's might throw away the pistol forms, but the DOL keeps full records of them.

Not sayin' that things are always easier other places, but... The state I left to come back here. had a simpler process for personal transfers.. Like Wa., you had to get approval for any pistol transfer. They just eliminated the need for a FFL.
The state has a record of all CPL's, so you download a form from the states DPS website, fill it out, call in to the number they have, give permit info over the phone, fill in approval # and mail in form after the sale, you keep a copy, the buyer/seller keeps a copy.
Ya don't get banged 20 or 30 bucks every time...
Just saying it's simpler not that the state doesn't suck with most other things firearms related...

This state doesn’t want it to be easy for people to transfer. They want it as hard as possible. No guns is the goal.

Thanks, Ops. And I think that agrees with what's in the OP, doesn't it?

"6) If no response to the background check is received after ten business days (starting with the business day AFTER the background check info is submitted), then the FFL legally may deliver the handgun to the buyer but is not required to do so."

If you send in the info over the weekend, the next business day is Monday.

What if the CPL comes in the mail during the 10-Day waiting period? It seems like one of the criteria would then be met for the transfer but I am curious as to whether it would matter since the paperwork has been sent?
