I’m aware of that, I’ve managed at two different FFLs. Sorry if I was unclear: My point was simply that with some delays the FFL never receives a response from NICS. So if the store policy is not to deliver the gun until a response is received, the OP might never receive his gun: If he simply waits for the store to receive a response, he’ll be waiting indefinitely.

In that case, to get his gun he’d need to actively challenge the delay through the NICS appeal process. Though I’ve never had a customer who appealed a delay, only a denial, since my stores have always had the policy of delivering the gun after three business days of no response.
