Firearm Transfer Policy

Firearms Transfer Policy

Indy Arms Company (IAC) relies on the FBI National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) to conduct the required background for all firearms dispositions.  When a background is conducted there are three primary results – PROCEED, DELAYED, and DENIED.

If a customer receives a status other than PROCEED there are two options to continue.

DELAYED – Customer may continue the firearms sale, without taking possession, by placing the firearm in layaway.  Firearms not placed in layaway will be returned to inventory and will not be held for customer.  The firearm sales and or transfer may proceed if no background status changes for 7 days.

DENIED – In the event that the background check status is DENIED, this will end the sales and transfer of any firearms to customer.
