Hello, this may be a dumb question but if my HSC expires on March 3, 2010,
can i still buy a gun on that day or would March 2, 2010 be the last day i can buy a gun with that HSC. I am just curious becus i may do a ppt but i wanted to do it on wed 3-3-10, i just wanted to know if it will be expired?
Thanks

Should be good throughout the 3rd. Like Cinderella's carriage, it turns into a pumpkin at the stroke of midnight on the 4th.

Just call ahead to verify with that FFL.

If you cant figure that out, should you really be owning a firearm?

isn't the renewal just a re-take of the test? if so just take the test before the PPT.

Well color me stupid, I thought you only had to take the thing one time, when you buy your first handgun..

Im just being a tightarse and barely have enough $ for the PPT. Plus after this handgun, i wasnt going to buy another for a while. I just didnt want to pay the ppt and renewal.

then hope the FFL accepts your HSC then. although the 10 day waiting period might affect that? don't you need a valid HSC when you pick up the pistol too?

No test, just a $15(?) fee when my HSC expired two weeks ago.

I showed them my old card, they filled out a new one for me and I was good to go.

Actually, I think you would need to pick up the handgun by the end of business on the 3rd. Not start the DROS by the 3rd.


12071(a)(8)(B) Commencing January 1, 2003, no dealer may deliver a handgun unless the person receiving the handgun presents to the dealer a valid handgun safety certificate. The firearms dealer shall retain a photocopy of the handgun safety certificate as proof of compliance with this requirement. If you pick up the handgun after the 3rd, you don't have a valid HSC, and the dealer can't deliver the handgun to you.

Tell them you're an illegal alien and are exempt from the HSC.

The only time I have ever had to show an HSC is at the time of purchase - not the time of pickup. Can't purchase the handgun in the first place without the HSC - isn't that part of the initial DROS process?

I usually only have to do the safety demo at the time of pickup and of course sign on the date and time of pickup to verify the ten 24 hour periods have passed.

You're good to go, Mario. I did the same thing on my expiration date this past January. My FFL just reminded me that I wouldn't be able to purchase another firearm until I renewed my HSC. Good luck with your purchase...




Hello, this may be a dumb question but if my HSC expires on March 3, 2010,
can i still buy a gun on that day or would March 2, 2010 be the last day i can buy a gun with that HSC. I am just curious becus i may do a ppt but i wanted to do it on wed 3-3-10, i just wanted to know if it will be expired?

.

right, they copy your HSC at the time of purchase, but I assume that someone audits the paperwork during the 10-day wait to make sure that everything is there. Items like the expiration on a DL or HSC could be checked to make sure they will still be good at time of delivery. If they are gonna still be valid, why do they need to see your HSC again, if they already have a copy of it?
