Background Check Q?

Post by RugerNut » 26 May 2018 19:34

Every time I purchase a firearm and have my background check performed I get a red flag and must wait an additional 3 days. After 3 days my FFL will release the firearm to me. I was told that there is an application I can fill out to get a permit # to show my FFL each time so I don't have to wait the additional 3 days. Where can I get this application from? :?:

Dunno what they are talking about to be honest. I've never heard of such a thing. May be something new?

Well, after doing some extensive searching on the interweb, I found what I was looking for.
It's called the VAF UPIN . There is a link to download the forms. You must also provide a fingerprint card. After the FBI receives your application and approves it, they send you a VAF UPIN# to be entered into box #9 on your NICS FORM #4473 (FFL call in) each time you purchase a firearm.
