Ok great, so I will still need my visa page, i94, and hunting licence with me ? But this is just for paperwork purposes and is not submitted for a NICS check ?

Yes. Just relax and bring the things I said to bring earlier in this post. You are over thinking this. It’s simple and straight forward. Many before you have done it.

Thanks killadoc, I think you can probably summarize from my posts I am incredibly cautious and don’t take the responsibility lightly. I just want to do everything correctly and learn from you guys, its all a new to me and I take it very seriously.

thank you for your response

i was just wondering that if it was declined for some reason is that not in fact breaking some law as they have declined you ?
As long as you are legally present in the US and otherwise eligible just note everything in the appropriate box on the 4473 and you should have no problems. You may have to provide a copy of your visa if you have one and should have a copy of your passport for ID.

Without The First and Second Amendments the rest are meaningless.
