Went to my FFL to pick up my 1911. It's like 1000% more beautiful than its pictures. Totally forgot about how long NICS is taking. Used to take me 10 minutes. When the guy said, "Okay, it'll be about 4-5 days, do you want to pay now or when you pick it up?" it felt like being stabbed in the heart.
4-5 days now for a simple NICS check RIGHT after having just gone through the 44 day NJ background check.
