I just DROS my first gun yesterday. it's a Savage 22lr rifle. My question is The DROS started on 04/30/09 at 2:55pm now when is the soonest I can pick it up? The gun shop that has it said the soonest would be 5/10/09 after 2:55pm. But it was my impression that if you count 04/30/09 then 10 days i would be able to pick it in on 05/09/09 after 2:55pm. Thanks for your help in clearing this up!

Some shops make you wait 11 days just to cover their ***. Plus your 10th day lands on a Sunday. Is the shop open that day?

Well thats why i'm asking because the shop is not open Sun. Mon. or Tue. so i wouldn't be able to pick it up until Wed. And it was my understanding that from 4/30/09 to 5/9/09 was the 10 days and the 9th is a Sat. and they are open so i would be able to get it before having to wait until Wed.

10 "24 hour periods" from the time DROS was submitted. Looking at my calendar that would be 14:55 hours on 05/10/09.

You don't count 4/30/09 as your first day.
First 24 hour period ends 5/01/09.

Last 24 hour period ends 5/10/09.

That is right 10 full 24 hour periods end on the 10th. Also other things that cost longer than 10 days are when the shop is closed and store policy. Big 5 and Sports Authority I believe both have 11 day waiting periods.
