I sent my future son in law to Academy Sports to buy himself the Taurus Judge he liked mine so much he wanted his own he filled out his federal forms and got delayed as many of us do. Well I told him no big issue they can release the gun to you after 72 hours. He went back and Academy refuses to release the gun. According to the store manager in Kenner Academy has a store policy that they will not release a firearm until they get the call back from the feds because if they find out later that they were not suppose to release the gun then they have to go and retrieve the gun from the owner. I am calling BS on her the whole way. I told her that the Feds allow you to take possession after 72 hours if they have not called back and she said that she is aware of that but Academy will not honor this. I told her I know of situations where the feds have never called back to clear the person she said well he will never get the gun. I think they need to read the regs and get a better understanding sent him to another guy and he will pick his gun up on Saturday whether they are called back or not the hell with Academy Sports and outdoors they can close as far as I am concerned.
