pending something popping up later..and how often does that ever happen?
not sure about % or stats, never looked.
however, i've know it to happen to at least 2 different ppl, one of which was medically discharged from the service.
as for the scenario presented, i found out the hard way.
and i cancelled the second purchase.
part of it was my fault for not knowing any better.
part of it was my fault for wanting to be 'approved'.
however, the biggest part of it denied the retailer additional revenue and that ain't good business.
see here's the thing.
for fun, let's just say i'm a CCW approved buyer who has recently been arrested and released for an unrelated 'assault'.
(smacked someone with a dead fish
now, when or if i'm convicted of the prior mentioned 'assault', i could potentially be deemed a felon. however, in between now and then, i can still
go to any gun show, any gun dealer, any garage crafter and buy a weapon, without so much as a 30 minute wait.
given the above, how is the bureaucracy
of this discussion helping 'mental health' in any way, shape or form ?
as for your last question, that depends.
i had enough funds to buy 3 that day (under $300 each) but, the point is ... many buyers save up for such purchases and as a 1st time buyer, i was
more interested in getting "approved" than anything and that isn't what retailers are in business to do.
last i checked they were titled "salesman" for a reason.
forgot to add ... it is also the last firearm i will purchase from a 'dealer'.
so what's that tell ya ?
