    I go to the operator every time. Last 4 digits, hair color, height, birth date, weight. Seems redundant.

    What do they check the last four against? What legally searchable file exists that can be queried, with only the last four?

    Even though SS#'s aren't supposed to be used for ID, they can be at times and are tied to several databases. A criminal record database is one of them.

    Very true. Some states view things differently than others. In my experience when Iíve applied for LEO positions I never had any issues with my background, nor issues with buying a firearm in other states. The problem only began when I applied for a weapon in PA. Apparently any of the states that have their own firearm check POC outside of the federal system is where these things can happen. PA is one of those few. Which is why when Phil told me to get a attorney I did. And Iím very glad I did, because itís all cleared up. Just cost a tiny fortune lol! 😂
