  • Firearm waiting periods...

    I know some states have stringent laws on firearm purchasing and ownership, and was wondering if LEO's are exempt from these?

    The longest I have ever waited for a gun purchase was about 10 minutes and I use no special "passes".

      I have bought several handguns in Maryland after getting into LE. This included my off duty carry weapon. Still had to wait the seven days no matter what.


      Kind of pointless law since if I wanted to shoot someone I already owned several guns.
      In God we trust, all others are run MILES and NCIC.

        I had to wait 10 minutes once, but that was only because there was someone in line in front of me. Also, the normal $5 charge for the purchase permit was waived.

          Civilian. So I'd have to wait 72 hours...cause YOU know, NO criminal who needs a gun is going black-market, he's going to a gun shop. Besides...those 3 days'll make your criminal *** have a change of heart.

          "You lucky...I WAS gon' bust a cap in yo ***, but I had 3 days to think about it."

          Anyone sworn can walk right in, show ID/star, fill out necessary paperwork & walk out with the gun. A friend who was in the academy & not sworn yet showed his ID & a letter from the super (chief), same procedure.

            Oregon is a waiting period state. You have to wait for the guy in front to finish buying so you can buy yours.

            I don't think waiting periods are worth much, I do believe in stringent criminal checks, which oregon does.

              I guess it depends on the state. I'm sworn but I have never been asked for my ID when making a purchase. Maybe its because some stoe owners know me but I have bought from the box stores with no waiting.

                Yeah, it's a matter of the state. If you aren't an LEO in Illinois, you're subject to a 72-hour wait so they have to see ID to release the gun immediately.

                  I love my state!

                  In Wyoming...the only waiting you do is while the NICS (Brady) check is run. And, if you have a CHL, you don't have to even do that! The BATF has ruled that my permit qualifies as an NICS. Otherwise, the waiting consists of. . .will my credit card/check clear?

                    Yea here in West Michigan if you have a CCW it takes longer to fill out the paper work for a new gun purchase than waiting for background check and check/credit card to clear.. .....for example last year I bought a Colt 1911 for myself for my BDAY and from the second I showed the gun dealer my CCW and DL and filled out paper work while waiting for background check it took 7 minutes till I was walking out the door with my 1911.

                        Ohio...instant checks with the county sheriff ...longest one was about 20 minutes...most of the time I am ready by the time I fill out the yellow form...which is about all of 5 minutes.
