    A NICS check is good for 30 days.

    Private long-gun transfers could also be legally done at any hour.

    Your dealer is taking a chance.

    It sounds like a pre approval for a purchase ??

    Some of the form your dealer can probably fill out for you (with your confirmation). But I think he cannot do a good portion of it, especially not the Yes/No questions towards the bottom. And I don't think he should get anything started to PICS until you've signed everything (but IANAL, nor am I an FFL).

    When I bought a handgun during the great panic of 1812 we went to a gun shop for the transfer and it took a few hours for him to get PICS on the phone. I remember asking if it would help if I were to start filling out paperwork while he waited on hold and to the best of my recollection, he said he's not allowed to do that.

    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    I doubt those sellers and buyers even know what that is?
