Just home watching the local news and stuff today. It's been a chilly day here and not so much fun for the birds in my bird bath. Poor little guys.
Roaming, is it possible to do what I do for my chickens? I have a 60 watt bulb hanging about 18 inches above the water area. So far, even in the coldest times their water has not frozen. It is one of those bowl shaped silvery metal clamp-on lamp holders that I only turn on when it is below freezing temperatures. You might try attaching it to a shepherd's hook next to and aim it toward the bird bath. Just a thought.

I always figure that people will get over it or get under it. Not any other options.

AW, I fixed one of those in a dog house for a Beagle I had. I even ran the cord through pvc pipe so he wouldn't chew into it. I'll be darned, he chewew and mangled the metal holder. I just told him to freeze. LOL.

Dang, it's cold out there.. Made me even MORE perturbed about having to leave my nice warm house. But it was a wise move to do it live and in person. I have reasonably taken care of the situation...

So, here's the skinny:
I was put on a "delay" list. NOT a "don't sell to" list.

Whoever this little guy was that called my info in while I waited patiently for what I assumed would be the usual and expected okay, but then proceeded to inform me that they couldn't sell to me and ultimately couldn't give me a reason why??? Well, let's just say he's earned himself some additional "on the job training" and let's just leave it at that..

I'm not mad any more. But I'm still perturbed about the whole mess. If 'someone' had been more educated about their job duties, I would have been able to avoid all of this nonsense.
(I wasn't as mad when I LEFT there yesterday as I was after I had all of last night and this morning to stew over it. To be honest, I was more worried about the WHY reasoning behind it until my temper flared later on)..

Anyway I found the same pistol, put a chunk of change down on it because this "delay" means that I had to leave a deposit so they'd hold it, and then I can pick it up in a couple of days.

The assistant manager at the gun shop told me not to worry about this wait period, aka the "delay" list, and told me that it's happening to a lot of people right now. Particularly with the upsurge in gun purchases in the last month or so. I asked him if they'd had many people getting pissed off at about this "delay". He nodded and said "Yep".
(We both dropped it at that)...

I still don't know EXACTLY why I'm even on any kind of a "delay" list, but I may have an idea..
And here it is:

I let an old friend come here to stay with me last year for about 4 months while she tried to get back on her feet for what's about the umpteenth time now.. I don't like to kick people when they're down even if they are habitual "falling downers". So to make a long story short, I offered to give her a place to stay for a predetermined length of time.. She put in a change of address while she was here, using mine. I got to thinking about it on the way up to the gun shop and remembered that she's a convicted felon. Yes, tried, convicted and time served, but still a felon. And I had forgotten about it up until today... It didn't dawn on me until then that this might have me pegged some how.

IF they're watching people just because of who we know personally, we're ALL doomed. Well, at least I know I am.

So I'm about certain that this may very well be the reason why I was placed on a list because nothing else makes any sense. I've been clean as a whistle much too long by now for it to have been anything I did myself.. I don't even think I've downed the Prez via the internet, no matter how badly I've wanted to. I try to watch what I say about "certain things" on-line. You just never know who's watching.....

So I guess this is the way it's gonna be from here on out. Or at least until the government realizes that I'm not harboring any fugitives from the law around here, lol.

Anyway, in a few days I get my new gun. Done deal. All is good as far as I'm concerned.

Hello "Nope", I am glad you got it straightened out. It could be someone has the same name you do that is a convicted felon, mental patient, or something and they just had to verify it wasn't you. Most say if you get a Carry Concealed Weapon permit you have no delays. If you don't have one, you might think about getting one.

Sometimes when we are being nice and trying to help it comes back to bite you somewhere down the line. That could of very well been why too.

Anyway, enjoy your new gun.

Oh, and for the record, he said that they aren't able to give a reason WHY someone is denied when it does happen. He said that info isn't relayed to them. Odd, but I guess it makes sense to a certain degree. Specifically if someone was on any type of medication for mental illness. Who knows.
Like I said, it's a new one on me...

I guess I should have asked HOW a person would find out what might block them so I could tell everyone here, but I was just too happy to get this mess settled.

No problem now as far as I'm concerned. As if there should have been one before.... Next time I go to make a purchase, I'll go into it knowing full well that there might be another "delay".
