My record is completely clear, in fact I had to have a background check for work. I know my wait is nothing like the old days, but I just figured since its online now it would be somewhat quicker. Also, according to the status, my fingerprints and pictures were accepted, so thats not the problem.

Ok end of rant.

Where does your buddy's brother live? Different counties make have a different number of DPS troopers making background checks.
