    Default Desperately seeking lawyer to help with PICS challenge

    I recently tried purchasing a pistol online and got put in research after background check at FFL. I was then put into "undetermined" status after 2 week research period and I required to submit PICS challenge to the state police in Harrisburg. Really kind of agonizing because my gun is stuck in limbo now. I've spent the past two days trying to find a lawyer to help me with the challenge, just to make sure I'm doing it correctly and not violating any laws. Every one seems to be giving me a different story or just plain not getting back to me. I just need a lawyer very well versed in PICS system and PA firearm laws, because the ones I have been in touch with so far definitely are not. I'm in Allegheny Co. but would be open to any PA lawyer. Please feel free to pm if you can help me out, this has really been a nightmare the past month.

    Well, the good news is that it isn't your gun yet.

    I've spent the past two days trying to find a lawyer to help me with the challenge, just to make sure I'm doing it correctly and not violating any laws. Every one seems to be giving me a different story or just plain not getting back to me.

    One thing you can do in the meantime, if you haven't done so already, is review this:

    https://www.psp.pa.gov/firearms-info...20Records.aspx

    Don't wait too long to find a lawyer. You only have 30 days to submit your form.

    If nothing else, I'd get the form, fill it out to the best of your ability NOW, and have it ready to give to a lawyer willing to hear what you have to say.

    Just make sure there isn't something you've forgotten about in your closet or it could get ugly. I believe that any drug offense is a disqualifier, even a personal stash of marijuana. IANAL
