In order to how to buy a gun in Delaware, you must complete a Federal background check, aka Form 4473. This form will be completed once you have selected a firearm, and are ready to make the purchase. Once you have completed the form, we will submit a background check for you to NICS. We run background checks from 10-6:30 Monday thru Friday and from 10-5:30 on Saturdays.
We will receive one of three responses:
Proceed: You can purchase the firearm that day.
Denied: You may not purchase the firearm, however, we can provide you with documentation to submit an appeal.
Delayed: We cannot transfer the firearm to you until we receive a "Proceed" from NICS. However, according to Delaware law, once 25 days have passed, without confirmation from NICS, we can then transfer the firearm. Background checks are only good for 30 days. After 30 days, you must go through the process again. If you are Delayed, we will require a 50% deposit to hold the firearm. Exception: If the firearm is on Consignment (white sticker), you must pay for the firearm in-full for us to hold it for you.
If you have been Denied and want to file an appeal, go to the NICS Appeals web site. You will need your NTN number -- we can provide this to you.
