    Default PICS just changed the rules

    Did a check on ePICS yesterday for a customer. He was put into Pending and late put into Research. Went on this morning to check the status and got this message (in big red letters):

    The Pennsylvania Instant Check System (PICS) has temporarily extended the research period from 15 days up to a maximum of 30 days. This temporary modification to the research period will allow additional time for the necessary documentation to be compiled by entities that may be impacted by COVID-19. PICS users will be advised when the research period has reverted back to 15 days.

    We've been in this COVIS-19 scenario for what, 9 months and they just now do this?

    PICS operators and managers will not respond to questions about this only to say "We were directed to do this." I wonder who directed them to do it - AG maybe?

    There is no registration in Pennsylvania. Registration is illegal here.

    There is a record of sale database, but your gun not being uploaded into it is not grounds for the cops doing anything, as again, there are a large number of reasons that it might not be included.

    Put every PICS check in research and BOOM, 30 day waiting period for everyone without even a stroke of a pen.
