Prior to every firearm leaving our store the customer is required to present a valid Oregon Drivers License with their current physical address and complete a background check. Background checks take about 10 minutes and require the customer to complete a short form, provide thumbprints, and for one of our employees to enter all info into the OSP Website. There are only three results from this background process and the decision is made by the Oregon State Police (OSP):
Proceed – firearm is released to individual
Delayed – State Police require more time to make a decision and firearm can’t be released at this time
Denied – firearm is not released to individual
If you are delayed or denied and have questions as to why, you are welcome to call the State Police Firearms Instant Check System (FICS) line for answers – 503-378-3070.
Please remember that Pickers Paradise is not involved in making the decision to release a firearm. We are only responsible for gathering the required information for the State Police and then following their instruction.
