Background Check

Prior to every firearm leaving our store the customer is required to complete a background check. Background checks take about 10 minutes and required the customer to complete a short form, provide thumb prints, and for one of our employees to make quick call to the State Police. There are only three results from this background process and the decision is made by State Police:

  • Proceed – firearm is released to individual
  • Delayed – State Police require more time to make a decision and firearm can’t be released at this time
  • Denied – firearm is not released to individual

If you are delayed or denied and have questions as to why, you are welcome to call the State Police Firearms Instant Check System (FICS) line for answers – 503-378-3070.

Please remember that Cash Connection is not involved in making the decision to release a firearm.  We are only responsible for gathering the required information for the State Police and then following their instruction.

Questions? – Stop by or call your local Cash Connection store to speak with our experienced staff.
