Never had an issue at all, and all of a sudden I get a delayed response trying to buy a dang shotgun?! Anyone ran into this?

It happens. Could be a NICS problem. TX CHL prevents delays.

Add your SSN and resubmit. Happened to me once even with my CHL.

How is that? IIRC, they shouldn't even be calling if you have the CHL, right?

No can do, not permitted once B/G check is initiated and placed in a "delayed" status by NICS!

NICS B/G with (TX) CHL or CHL from another state?

Yep, happened to me once. Guy told me it could take up to 3 days for the delay to clear. I got in my car and left....he called when I was about 1/2 way home and said it was approved so I turned around to pick it up.

A clerk told me once that people with common names were the most likely to get delayed because it takes longer to distinguish between individuals.

This is true (so I've heard), unless you put your SSN on the form...which should distinguish you from anyone else. And some people just don't want to do that for some reason or another??

I used to get the initial delay basically everytime I tried to purchase a firearm. They would do a further check on the spot and after a few minutes I would still get approved. I always use my social and it still happened. Bought a new shotgun last night and didn't get delayed. Guess they figured out I am who I am.
