Default 3 day wait for background check

A friend from Arizona likes my AK and decided to get one himself. I told him there was no problem for a resident of a neighboring state, except CA & UT, to pick one up the same day from a dealer here in Vegas.

After completing the background form, the dealer said he'd have to wait 3 days. Is that typical?

Been a long time since I bought a long gun but I though the 3 day wait was only for a hand gun. Am I wrong?

You're correct, 3 day wait is for your first handgun (which can only be sold to NV residents)

Since he was buying an AK this doesn't apply

When calling in a background check for a bordering state, the NV DPS calls that state to run his local check for warrants, etc. Sometimes it doesn't get accomplished the same day, sometimes its back within 30 min.

But to answer your question, no. There is no set wait time. The only thing I can think was the background came back as a 3 day delay (give DPS 3 days before they have to get back to you with a proceed, deny, or no resolution.

He was most likely put on "delayed" status by DPS.

sometimes the delay seems to happen if the buyer has a common name.

I got delayed 3 days the first time I purchased a weapon here ( I'm from az). Since then its a proceed everytime.

I'm sure your buddy will be fine. I don't know why be came here for an AK, there are plenty in AZ !
