Yes, I did receive my firearm.
I also updated the OP with something that I had completely forgotten:
"Dick" had me complete an additional form which he himself created...
Many, if not most of you, have suggested that I mention his name here.
Here are my thoughts on doing that.
I dont think hes a "bad" guy.
I just think he is, as someone else mentioned, a Fudd FFL, making it even more difficult to buy a firearm in NJ, as though it wasnt already difficult enough. *facepalm*
I always try to maintain good relations with people and if at all possible, resolve any kind of disagreement in a diplomatic and tactful way.
Throughout this whole process, I think he was relatively "normal" and I always try to conduct myself in a mature, adult fashion. :-)
So, theres no "animosity", atleast not on my part and I dont believe any on his either.
The only thing which left me wondering was his insistence on getting my social security number.
The stories and "lies" which he was telling me in order to try and get this info... SMH.
