If you are a VIP that almost always means you own other guns which means the waiting period is idiotic-if I was "in the heat of passion" I'd pick one of the dozens of guns I currently own
if I have NEVER Bought a gun before there is no way I am going to be able to buy a weapon from the type of dealer who would be able to or subject to the waiting period in a short amount of time.
merely reading the 4473 and filling it out correctly so it passes the clerk's review is gonna take a newbie 15 minutes
how do I know this
well I have seen over 10,000 guns sold in my life and have sold a few hundred myself. back when I represented a major league gun dealer I often would help it sells at big Ohio gun shows.
I also spend a couple hours (min) a week at a range which also sells more firearms than any other dealer in the greater cincinnati area. the Staff often asks me for advice on weapons unfamiliar to the clerk since I tend to know far far more than the 25-35 year olds who make up the majority of the staff. and I have watched thousands of transactions involving form 4473s
