    NICS crash....

    Not sure if any of have tried to purchase in the last day or two, but the NICS being down indefinitely is an interesting development. I'm hoping the FBI will get it up and running again, because I have an FFL transfer coming my way.

    Somehow I don't think the liberal mayors and governors are too terribly concerned with the NICS system delaying everybody or crashing. Call me crazy though.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    Yep there is a lot of info in the Tennessee thread about it going up and down. I bought my birthday gun on 3-12 it took about 20 minutes. I went into the LGS on Saturday and it was insane totally packed and people 3 to 4 deep waiting on their checks.

    They said it was overwhelmed but my FFL said he got an E-mail saying it was going down nationwide. But no solid proof as of yet! I was 1 of 14,467 people that bought a gun in those 3 days double the previous 3 days!

    At my local gun store their background checks were taking 5 to 7 HOURS to run!
    The volume of background checks are running 70,000 per day in Florida.
    Florida checks are run through the FDLE system.
    My local gun store has stopped all special orders as of today because the distributors are completely over whelmed.
