An FBI Background Check will need to be performed by us after filling out the ATF Form 4473. This is done over the phone and usually takes 15 to 30 minutes.
Background Check Exception: If you possess a current Texas License To Carry (LTC) the FBI Background Check will not be necessary.
The FBI will respond with one of three possibilities:
Proceed: This means that the firearm may be transferred to you and you will be able to leave JR Gun Sales in possession of your firearm.
Delayed: This means that for some reason further investigation is required by the FBI prior to you being able to possess the firearm. You will not be able to leave JR Gun Sales with possession of the firearm. If we have not received a final determination (Proceed or Denied) from the FBI after 3 business days, the firearm may be transferred to you and you will be able to come back to JR Gun Sales and take possession of your firearm.
Denied: This means that at least one matching record was found in the NCIS database that determines that you are not allowed to possess a firearm. Because of this FBI determination you will not be able to leave JR Gun Sales with possession of the firearm.
If for some reason, unknown to you, the FBI returns a "denied" response an appeal process is available to you and can be applied for through the FBI NCIS system.
