12 days, Time of Day? Weekends?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everybody,


So, I purchased a brand spanking new P229 on Monday, the 15th of April. I am extremely excited, as i'm sure you all can understand. This will be my first handgun.


In any event, I too, am now one of those waiting on a miserable NICS check. I was wondering when those of you got the call from your LGS that the NICS was cleared. Was it during the morning, afternoon, or at night? Also, does anybody know if they are also sending back approvals during the weekends? I'd just really love to get a call tomorrow on my day off (Saturday), and was wondering if that was a possibility!


Let me know.


Thanks in advance for any replies,

My past 2 NICS calls were received around 1:00-2:00 timeframe during the week. I think that was more from the LGS calling buyers in batch to pickup. NICS is open until 5 today, so there is a good possibility today you might get the call.


Great pick for a first gun. Good Luck with it and welcome to the 2A family.

Congrats, and welcome to the crazy NJ gun law joke. What part of "Instant" does our stupid state not get?


This is just my first handgun, i'm well aware of the joke that is New Jersey's gun laws lol..


Update... no call today. Tomorrow is Sunday. So, i guess i'll be crossing my fingers on day 14 (Monday)...

      I am legally in USA since 2004, I am waiting for my permanent resident card from the immigration dept. I have work permit, SS #, NJ Drivers license and I own a house in NJ too.I am a law abiding tax paying family man. In the mean time I got my firearm ID card from New Jersey and tried to by a gun. By mistake I answered NO to question 11.l, and NICS denied my transaction. I was supposed to answer Yes to question 11.l and show my NJ hunting license at question 20c.
      Can anybody advise me how to make this correction? Since my green card is still under processing, I thought I will be considered in the Immigrant category, my mistake. If I just fill out a new form with these corrections, will it work? Thanks for reading
      I went to the same FFL today and filled out a new 4473 to buy a shot gun with correct information and run the NICS check, there was a 3 hour delay and they denied me again!! The FFL person told me that, he called state police for the reason. He told me that the immigration department did not approve me. Back to same situation...Can anybody help me in this? Is my status eligible for firearm purchase? I have a NJ firearm hunting license.

      So bought a ruger 10/22 on thanksgiving day, about 5:30pm, and knew they would run the NICS on Friday when the state opened....
      No call from DSG on Friday, which I knew might happen because the state gets over run with NICS checks because of the sales...
      Went to Dicks this morning to get something else, and went into the lodge to inquire about the NICS check...the lodge associate called the manager and they looked in the NJSP portal...
      Fail # 1- he said my check came back yesterday morning.... And they never called me... Kinda new that was gonna happen....
      MAJOR FAIL- During the whole interaction today, (I did leave with my rifle) they never checked my ID to confirm who I was! I just told them my name and they gave me a gun.......
      They shouldn't be able to sell guns

      What happens if my P2P expires (it was already extended for 90 days) after the NICS check is started but before the state police approves it (which I have heard is now taking over 2 weeks)? Would I have to start over again and apply for new permits? Will the FFL hold the pistol for a few months until I get the new permits (it was already paid for)?
      And I always thought the I in NICS stood for Instant! My bad.

      Hello, First post. Great site.
      After the tragedy, the 2 PPs that I had renewed once became treasures. So I went to Luciano's in WP and tried to purchase a new Sig. They were unbelievably helpful and knowledgeable. However I was told that the NJ NICS system was down since last Friday. I was aghast, and they called it in front of me and several other patrons. Sure enough the recording said that the system was unavailable and that they would not be charged for the call.
      Any one else hear of this?

    • Now in order for me to sell you a long gun we have to go to a gun store to do the transaction?
    • Those tings can live several days without their heads. Just like the congresswoman.
    • That's still pretty low. They excavated the road to achieve that. I have a 12'8" near me that gets hit several times a year including this past Thursday. Good size piece of sheet metal on the side of the road Friday morning.
    • It's not just succes that's penalized. 3 years ago I was laid off after 24 years at the same company. I was far from a high paid employee but would have qualified for a little over $600 a week in unemployment insurance. That is not what I received. The amount you collect is calculated on a 12 month average but not the last 12 months you wotked. They go back 6 month and calculate the 12 months from there. I commited the sin of being on private disability for 4 of those 12 months which does not count towards the calculations for eligibility. Because my private insurance didn't pay the $8 a week state unimployment tax (approx) during my disability it cist me $300 a week in benifits when I needed to collect. I appealed the award and was denied. No not fair at all but life is not fair.  Can't wait for my stimulas checks.
