    Default Purchasing Guns At Odd Hours

    I wonder if its possible to purchase guns in PA at odd hours. By that I mean at times such as 5 in the morning. From what I know PICS is not usually open then and this post might seem silly but I have a reason for making this post which I will explain.

    In NJ, I can have a NICS check run during normal hours (not actually present at LGS) and then pick up whenever from dealer within a certain time window.

    Might be a real person.

    You may be able to run the transaction any time you wish, but would need to wait until the PICS goes through for pickup. You know of a 24-hour gun shop?

    0500 won't work in PA:

    "Pennsylvania Firearm Dealers and County Sheriffs access the PICS program through a toll free telephone number, which is available for service from 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. seven days a week, including holidays."

    The background check won't work, but the FFL might do the remainder of the transaction with completion pending the check...their decision though.

    The last time I made a pick up from my local guy that gets my incoming shipments, he had the check done before I got there. He pulled my paperwork from a prior transaction (only about 2 weeks earlier), and already had an approval number in hand. As soon as I completed the fresh paperwork, he filled in the number and I was on my way.

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

    Though the times of day were decent I've always felt kind of strange purchasing guns in parking lots.

    Very true!!
