P2P Expires Before NICS Background Check is Approved

Recommended Posts

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.

I would think that the faxed in date would count as the date.  I am sure there are many FFLs that will weigh in on the correct answer. I ordered a gun from a local FFL once and the gun came in a day after the permit expired and they said it was no problem.

if no approval is received prior to expiration date.......your loss. It doesn't start on the date is was sent over, sorry. Nics is also up to about 20 days

On the flip side, I had an FFL state that the SP is allowing it if its submitted prior to expiration, of course thats not in writing though lol.

My FFL contacted NICS and explained the expiration situation. They moved it to the top of the list and it was completed before permit expiring. YMMV

 

This is correct. In extreme situations they can fast track. If permit can be extended though that should be tried first. Is it really 20 days now?

The permit had already been extended for 90 days and the FFL can't contact the SP so my last hope is that the confirmation comes in today or Monday. Otherwise I will have to apply for new permits. And yes they are saying it is 20 days now for the INSTANT check.

The instant NICS check didn't make it back yet and my permit expired. So this morning I went to the local PD and submitted an application for 3 more permits. I am guessing that is going to take some time now also. You gotta love our NJ system!

      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

      This fun app helps to keep track of not only when your P2P expires, but also if you need to get it extended.  Also helps with OGAM management so you will know when your next available purchase date is.  No more second guessing!!!

      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,
       
      Michael

    • really sorry I missed this.. as stated the rod is not needed..  @TRPC_SHOOTER  
    • Well I got a denial letter for FID and handgun permit. 2 reasons were listed, and seem reasonable on the surface, but the issues aren't what they seem. Reason 1 was an aggravated assault charge from 2007 that was dismissed. But I didn't assault anyone. I make the mistake of driving after consuming alcohol, I fell asleep, hit a tree, and my passenger was injured from the accident, hence the charge, along with a DWI (I had a BAC of .12). However they fully recovered from their injuries, and I entered and completed PTI, and the aggravated charge was dismissed. My passenger didn't even want me charged. In municipal court, the prosecutor wanted a year license suspension, but the judge gave me a 7 months suspension because I wasn't blasted out of my socks. I went through the mandatory drug counseling like everyone else, and it was determined I did not need additional counseling, as i did not fit the criteria for an alcoholic. Reason 2, in late 2018 I filed for divorce from my bipolar wife, she was a very angry and mentally unstable person. After I filed, she demanded a payout that I just couldn't afford or she would drag out the divorce, so I hired a lawyer. Well my wife went to the local PD, this is in late 2019, a year after we'd stopped living together, and filed a police report. She claimed I was a suicidal wife abusing alcoholic, and claimed that there have been many instances of unreported domestic violence in the past. She did this so she could have a police report as "proof" of being a victim in a terrible marriage, to garner sympathy from the family court judge, but it didn't help her in the divorce, and in the end, decided to avoid trial, and walk with nothing. However this report of hers is one of the reasons they denied me, despite her allegations being untrue. I've never assaulted my ex-wife, was never arrested, or even questioned, not in person, not even a phone call. Is it worth it to appeal the denial? I really feel defeated here. I also don't have thousands for a lawyer, and with the pandemic closing the courts, how could an appeal even proceed?
