That means they do not have a scalable solution for increased demand.  Antiquated systems need to be updated.

No, it needs to be eliminated. Why are we paying $15 (plus tax :facepalm:) for a NICS check already paid for through taxes on firearms? So we can pay a receptionist a NJ Trooper's salary to call NICS instead of the FFL conducting the check. It's nonsense.

Typical NJ, nothing ever changes. One of THE most unfriendly states to gun owners. And thanks to left, the rioters and the "protesters" guns have been flying off the shelves. My last 3 pistol permits I had to purchase the guns online (GunBroker, Armslist) and had them transferred to NJ as no one had what I was looking to get.

I was looking for a

  • P38 (which I had to good fortune to purchase off an FFL in North NJ)
  • S&W M&P 2.0 in Flat Dark Earth ( found on Gunbroker from a shop in FL)
  • Ruger Redhawk .44 with 7.5 barrel (ended up with a Ruger Super Redhawk .44 with 9 barrel (found on Gunbroker from MN)

When I was at Middlebrook a few weeks ago, you could see their stock was low. They had no shotguns to speak of at that time.

No Glock for me

I was notified by Steve that I am in the NICS system — no idea when I’ll get the call

hopefully by the end of this week

Thank you. Didnt know they did an update on there.  

I’m not seeing one now.  Is there a link, or does it only show up on a certain browser?

this might be handy in the future.

Isnt the rule after 3285 days with no reply the FFL can release the gun to you?

To be honest.. if you were waiting that long.. regardless of the rules i would give you the gun.

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.

It might not be a nics issue but an appointment issue... Is your FFL appointment only if so he might have his own backlog.
